I heard it before when John Lennon sang it: unfortunately I did not care much for it. When I watched this episode while the deaf adolescents were singing it, and soon joined by another glee club, it surprisingly affected me… John Lennon sang it like a professional, but what he did not have was the emotion behind the words. He sang it more staccato than legato.
