30 years ago a famous music legend John Lennon was shot down by a crazy fan Mark David Chapman. I don't remember where I was when I first heard the devastating news. But a year before this untimely death I got married. I just remember feeling shocked and sadness by his loss. Ever...
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.
Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...
You are invited to listen to Author/Photographer and John Lennon's mistress, May Pang, when she is interviewed on my show, November 15 at 11 am, EST, 8 AM on the West Coast.
It was Yoko Ono, who suggested John Lennon take a break for awhile. She asked May to accompany...
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.
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...
lennons music by a new friend of mine. And the moment I saw that video clip , oh ....I instantly feel in love with the lyrics, the tune, the video clip, the eyes of John Lennon, the asian girl in clip sitting beside him and I fell in love with the sender as well.
At the time...
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...
Woman I can hardly express,
My mixed emotion at my thoughtlessness,
After all I'm forever in your debt,
And woman I will try express,
My inner feelings and thankfullness,
For showing me the meaning of succsess,
oooh well, well,
oooh well, well,
Woman I know you...
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
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.
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...
I've loved John Lennon since I was nine years old. I don't know what it is about the man I like so much, maybe it's his passion, or that he stood up for what he believed in, whatever it is, he'll always have a place in my heart. I can't really listen to Imagine very much cause it...
I am an insurance adjuster. I was a rookie when our office got the call that his master bedroom ceiling had fallen and would I handle the claim..Sure! no problem. well, his home was something else. It was empty of course. Yoko One and her boyfriend lived in New York...
Love that song, but not a real big fan of his music. I think who he was and what message he put out is great. "All you need is love", that's what he said and it's true. I think I'm just in a lovable mood tonight maybe.
I do think Instant Karma is one of the greatest...
