Sammy's boss from "Spread Your Wings" is/was in love with Sammy.The boss, very emotionally, asks Sammy "Why can't you be happy at the Emerald bar?" which implies that the boss wants Sammy around, but according to the boss, Sammy is "always dreaming".

Put Out the Fire's first verse is about Mark Chapman.Check out the lyrics: 'They called him a hero in the land of the free, but he wouldn't shake my hand boy, he disappointed me, so I got my handgun and I blew him away, that critter was a bad guy and I had to make him pay.' Eerily familiar, and the song was recorded shortly after Lennon's death.
