The relationship between John Lennon and the number 9
"Number 9, Number 9,
Number 9, Number 9, Number
Another of the Beatles recurring themes involved songs written by John
Lennon. It seems that Lennon had a fascination with the number nine that
was only overpowered by his love for Yoko.
Songs and Albums
"One After 909"
"Revolution No. 9"
Ironically, this song was a part of Lennon's ninth solo album
which was released in the ninth month of 1974. The song even peaked
at number 9 in the charts. AND.... A verse in the song has nine syllables, "Ah, bowakawa, pousse pousse."
His album, Mind Games, contains nine letters in its title
Another of Lennon's album names contains nine letters. The album
was his dedication to classic rock and was entitled: Rock 'n' Roll
John Lennon was born on October, 9 1940
Some even say he was born at 6:30pm. 6 + 3 + 0 = well you figure it out.
His son was also born on the ninth
When John Lennon was shot, on December, 8th 1980, it was already December 9th in his hometown of Liverpool, England.

Liverpool has nine letters
When an engineer said "Revolution number nine" to begin the recording
of the song by the same name, John loved the sound. He was lucky that it
had been recorded. John looped the recording over and over again throughout
the beginning of "Revolution No. 9"
Nine letters make up the most important phrase of one of John's
most important antiwar songs. All we are saying, is give peace a chance.
John Ono Lennon and Yoko Ono
Lennon's combined names contain nine O's
John's elementary school bus number happened to be 72. 7 + 2 = 9
(We know its a stretch)
He even lived in apartment 72 in New York. Yet another 9.
McCartney, his best friend through most of his life, is spelled with 9 letters.
