  • "Hold On" es una canción del álbum John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band de John Lennon. Cuenta con sólo voces, trémolo de guitarra, batería, bajo y guitarra, típico de los acuerdos dispersos por Lennon que salieron favorecidos en su momento. En el medio de la canción, murmura Lennon la palabra "cookie", imitando el monstruo de las galletas de los niños de EE.UU. programa de televisión Plaza Sésamo. En la reedición de 2000 de John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, "Hold On" incluye una introducción ligeramente más larga. La versión original fue restaurada en la reedición de 2010. El tema de la canción es la fragilidad emocional, como el estado que muestra la letra que cuando estás solo en el mundo sólo hay que "aguantar". Lennon intenta cerciorarse de que él y su esposa Yoko Ono tengan la fuerza para superar sus retos, y si se aferran, "que va a estar bien" y "vamos a ganar la pelea". De hecho, hacia el final de la canción Lennon amplía el objeto de abarcar el mundo entero, cantando que la paz será posible cuando todos van a "ver la luz" y darse cuenta de que todos somos "uno". Musicalmente, Lennon toca su guitarra con suavidad, aplicando trémolo, un efecto que dice Jackson coincide con "la tranquilidad relajante de las letras". Sin embargo, la música críticos Wilfrid Mellers y Johnny Rogan estatales que otros elementos de la música crean una cierta tensión con el mensaje tranquilizador. Estos elementos incluyen a Ringo Starr "nervioso" tocando la batería, con muchos silencios, y el fragmentado vocal de la melodía, que rompe la frases de las letras. (es)
  • Hold On è una canzone dell' album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band di John Lennon. È stata registrata solo mediante l'ausilio di voce, chitarra, batteria, e il basso, tipici strumenti preferiti da Lennon a quel tempo. A metà della canzone, Lennon proferisce la parola cookie, imitando il Mostro Cookie, all'epoca personaggio della tv per bambini. (it)

On the 2000 reissue of John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, "Hold On" features a slightly longer introduction. The original version was restored on the 2010 reissue. The song's theme is emotional fragility, as the lyrics state that when you're alone in the world you just have to "hold on." Lennon tries to assure himself that he and wife Yoko Ono have the strength to overcome their challenges, and if he holds on, "it's gonna be all right" and "we're gonna win the fight." Lennon explicitly namechecks himself and Yoko Ono, but author Andrew Jackson does not believe that this detracts from the universality of the message. Indeed, towards the end of the song Lennon expands the subject to encompass the whole world, singing that peace will be achievable when everyone will "see the light" and realize that we are all "one." Musically, Lennon plays his guitar gently, applying tremolo, in an effect that Jackson states matches "the soothing reassurance of the lyrics." Lennon took 32 takes experimenting with different approaches before hitting on this one. However, music critics Wilfrid Mellers and Johnny Rogan state that other elements of the music create some tension with the reassuring message. These elements include Ringo Starr's "jittery" drumming, with many silences, and the fragmented vocal melody, which break up the sentences of the lyrics. Lennon has explained the song as follows: "I'm saying 'hold on John' because I don't want to die...I don't want to be hurt and please don't hit me...Hold on now, we might have a cup of tea, we might get a moment's happiness any minute now. So that's what it's about, just moment by moment. That's how we're living now, but really living like that and cherishing each day, and dreading it too. It might be your last." (en)
