John Lennon - Imagine


Music Monday #1 >> John Lennon - Imagine



Even though I haven't been born when the song was released in 1971, I did listen to it years after that - thanks to my father love of music. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine voted “Imagine” the third greatest song of all time.
“In many countries around the world – my wife and I have visited about 125 countries – you hear John Lennon’s song ‘Imagine’ used almost equally with national anthems.” – Jimmy Carter, former U.S. president
Of course this song stirred some controversy itself. Just see the second verse, “nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too”. For someone who has a religion and belief to hold with, the words may sound offensive. Islam, Christian, Buddhism, Hindu and all other religion are relatively against any form of violence. It just that people who are using religion as an excuse to start killing each other. The world is indeed bleeding badly.

John Lennon - Imagine

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 may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

He was a genius and what a shame that his life ended so tragically.

elton john was a gay its according to some of the news that i heard about him but still his songs doesnt really defines his character...
i love hs songs "imagine" is one of them
its very meaningful so as the "sacrifice"

mspennylane said...

I love that song so much. And yes I think he means that 'no religion' is his version of saying that people will accept everyone for who they are, and never judge because of a belief.
