    Remembering John Lennon

    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...

    I enjoy listening to the various Beatles songs.

    I loved the song "Imagine" written and sung by the late John Lennon. This is such a beautiful thought and I commend John for writing and singing it.

    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.

    I Admire John Lennon.

    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...

    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.

    Give Peace a Chance

    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...

    Great Person

    John Lennon was a person that stood for what he believed in and didn't let anyone push him around. He protested for what he believed in! Man he's such and inspiration to me.

    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

    '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.

    Imagine

    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.

    Why I Love John

    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...

    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...

    Instant Karma's Gonna Get You

    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...
