Imagine Song, John Lennon

Imagine, John Lennon’s Masterpiece

Imagine Song, John Lennon

IMAGINE, NO, Heaven, Hell, Countries, Religion, john lennon quotes

Imagine, by John Lennon, is my favorite song of all time.
Imagine. One little word that embodies so much possibility, so much promise, so much hope… by imagining we can change the whole world, one little step at a time. I keep a little sign on my desk that says it: simply “Imagine.”

Before John Lennon wrote the song Imagine, I’ll bet few thought of the power of that word. After he wrote it, the word became a legendary slogan of powerful potential. Such is the power of John Lennon’s vision! It’s a simple song, and a simple tune, but it’s very moving. The words present a utopian vision of the future, and it became his most famous song after he was taken from us too soon. Of course John wrote many fantastic songs both with the Beatles and afterward on his own. But the Imagine song is his most famous.

I lived through Beatlemania, and I had all the music, all the posters, all the books, and all the memorabilia that I could ever get my hands on. I loved all the Beatles, individually and collectively, and most of their songs, but the Imagine song by John Lennon is still my favorite song of all time. I have included a few “Imagine” posters, and a few John Lennon quotes sprinkled throughout the page.

Enjoy!

Imagine Lyrics By John Lennon

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 that 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 I
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 that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one.

 Imaginejohn lennon quotes

Amazon says this: Imagine John Lennon comes from a treasure trove: the legendary musician’s own collection of more than 240 hours of film and videotape, much of it never seen by the public. With cooperation from Yoko Ono in its creation, producers David L. Wolper and Andrew Solt (partners on This Is Elvis) transform the archival footage – and a monumental 36-tune soundtrack – into a spellbinding account of a complex, fascinating man. Lennon’s own voice narrates “a classic film biography” (Roy Leonard, WGN-TV/Chicago).

“I’m not claiming divinity.
I’ve never claimed purity of soul.
I’ve never claimed to have the answers to life.
I only put out songs
and answer questions as honestly as I can…
But I still believe in
peace, love and understanding.”
~John Lennon

John Lennon and Art

 Imagine John Lennon (1988) – 11 x 17 Poster – Style Bjohn lennon quotes

John was actually a bit of a philosopher, and a deep thinker. Like many creative people, He was multi talented in the Arts. He not only wrote amazing songs and lyrics, he also wrote poetry and short stories and was an artist.

Ten years ago a tour of his artworks made its way around the USA. and I went to see it in Monterey, California. The drawings were quite charming.

“If everyone demanded peace
instead of another television set,
then there’d be peace.”
~John Lennon

The Day John Lennon Died
John Lennon Memories

Some days will never be forgotten. In my life, the death of John Lennon was one of those days, a day that marked the end of childhood.

I still remember exactly where I was when I heard the news, and the conversation I had with my husband as soon as he got to work. We heard it on the radio while he was driving there and I was at home in the kitchen. The shock of all shocks! The Beatles could never get back together now! Childhood was over.

The Imagine Tower of Peace is located in Iceland, and the location was chosen by John’s widow, Yoko Ono, because of Iceland’s use of geothermal energy which is clean energy. Construction began on October 9, 2006 and was completed October 9, 2007 when she dedicated it. It is lighted every year from October 9-December 8, the day John was murdered in New York City.

The white stone monument that the lights emanate from is carved with the words “Imagine Peace” in 24 languages, a reference to “Imagine”, John’s wonderful song about Peace. Yoko has said that the tower is the best thing she and John ever did.

“Yeah we all shine on,
like the moon, and the stars, and the sun.”
~John Lennon
