I Love John Lennon's "Imagine"

    Imagine without a doubt is a simplistic

    masterpiece. Something I love so dearly about John's recording style was it was so raw and real, sometimes he hit a sour note or his voice cracked but he just kept it. Really there's nothing to it, any pianist will tell you it's not at all difficult to play... But yet it's...

    Many people chastise this song

    as if it's the drivel of a pseudo-intellectual Marxist. They dismiss the idea of an ideal in the formation of ideas. Is it then not Ok to imagine a world with no violence as we create laws to protect people from and deter people to violence. Why have laws in the first place...

    I Couldn't Believe There Was Someone Out There Like Me...

    The World's Song

    'Imagine' is simply an amazing song. Never in my life have I been inspired in so many ways by relistening to a song more than fifty or so times. That happens not to be an exaggeration... it's simply a wonderful song that could perfectly be part of the world, part of our history...

    Excellent Music

    I too love this song and many others such as Let It Be that touch your heart and really make you wish that what is said in them could come true. Why cannot people live and let live. Why do they have to fight about it. Religion and politics are the biggest dividers of man and it...

    My Favorite Song Ever Written

    Being an idealist, John Lennon's "Imagine" portrays my thoughts on what the world SHOULD be. "You may say that I'm a dreamer"...but I look forward to the day that "Reality" will be synonymous with "Imagination".

    “I believe in everything

    until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?” ― John Lennon

    A Very Good Song!

    I heard this song, when I was 15, and fell in love with it! I'm still trying to figure out how to work it in my future wedding. Heehee. :-) Anyway, mid last year, I got to play in a music group in a hospital. I volunteered to play the tambourine, as that would be the easiest...
