Lennon says: 'The blues is a chair, not a design for a chair, or a better chair...It is the first chair.'
This iderden-chair is not a rocking chair. It is a chair for sitting on. You can lean back, you can even bend forwards
a little
. Sit in the Pharaoh position, sit back in the chair with your feet on the floor and your hands on your knees.
And then you sing the blues. Or you listen to the blues.
The Bourgeois Blues ; De Middenstandsblues.
All you need is a comfortable chair. Or a sofa. A sofa to sit on.
Sittin' on My Sofa. Analysing bourgeois. Aha ! Hmmmm !!
Then you jump out of the chair and you Dance the Grape. This is a moment of catharsis. You are healed.
