    If Only

    I can't imagine what it must have ben like in his time, with so many people actually believing it was possible for world peace in their lifetimes. I was born in the 80's and have never thought such a thing. I can't say I've met too many people who have either. It's a very rare...

    Imagine. John Lennon was killed

    when my mother was still in primary school. Twelve years later she gave birth to me. I imagine more about life, and I read up to get an idea of life before I was born. I like to listen to songs like Give peace a chance.

    'It was (thirty)  years ago today' As the whole world knows, John Lennon passed away in the most brutal fashion on Dec 8th, 1980. To celebrate his life, here's a solo and a Beatles classic.

    Power To The People

    I just recently discovered Lennon as a solo artist. Before that I just kew him as a Beatle. Yet he wrote some great songs after the breakup. A true genius!

    I loved the Beatles very much

    and enjoy listening to their multiple cds in my possession. I really admire John Lennon when he wrote and sang the song " Imagine". I play this song over and over again to my delight.

    A Great Man

    He knew what he belived in and was not afraid to tell the world. There are not many people who are able to do that. Such a loving and peaceful person, and so expressive through his music. He was one of the great ones.

    What He Stood For

    Not only was he the best writer of the Beatles but he stood for peace and his lyrics spoke of it.  It's truly tragic how this man of peace died.

    He was a very influential and important figure in history, otherwise someone would not have had the need to assasinate him. The idea behind the song Imagine is one that lives on in all the people that John Lennon touched.

    I love The Beatles. They're my favorite band. And my favorite Beatle is John Lennon. For those who don't understand him, John can seem very brazen and "difficult"..even (dare I say it?) unlovable. But that's because most people tend to view him in SUPERFICIAL terms. John could be...

    as a musician and singer. I really love the song of his called "Imagine". This song speaks volumes to me about his mind and lovely it would be in his world to imagine. I would love to accompany him to talk about his thoughts in the world.

    All John was saying is give peace a chance. He wasnt shoving it down anyones throat... just give it a chance. I personally think the man was genius. ******* for peace is the best advice I have ever heard. Not only did he fight for a rightous reason but his music is untouchable...

    A Beautiful Man

    Lennon was more then a musician. He was a man fighting a war he couldn't win (and it is SOOOOO sad to say that), the war of peace. His weapons were his words. It is a tradgedy to lose him before his time.......... RIP John
