    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...
    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 live as one
    written by John Lennon & Yoko Ono
    ABOUT IMAGINE
    John: ‘Imagine’ is a song conceived in my head without melody. The first verse came to me very quickly in the form of a childlike street chant ‘da da da da da dee dee da dee da ee a eeeh’. The piano intro I’ve had hanging around in my head for a few years - the chords and melody followed naturally from this.
    The middle eight was ‘conceived’ to finish off the song. I think it works as a song. Of course, there is always room for improvement - otherwise I wouldn’t make any more. The third verse came to me in an eight-seater plane. It’s a song for children.
    Yoko: ‘Cloud Piece’: ‘Imagine the clouds dripping, dig a hole in your garden to put them in.’ This is not a piece of poetry. Poetry to me is nouns or adjectives. This is verbs. And you have to do them. These are all instructions and when you just do it, then you start to understand it.
    John: ‘Imagine’ was inspired by Yoko’s Grapefruit. There’s a lot of pieces in it saying like ‘Imagine this’ or ‘Imagine that’. If you get a copy of Grapefruit and look through, you’ll see where I was influenced by her. ‘Imagine’ could never have been written without her. And I know she helped on a lot of the lyrics but I wasn’t man enough to let her have credit for it. So that song was actually written by John & Yoko, but I was still selfish enough and unaware enough to take her contribution without acknowledging it. The song itself expresses what I’d learned through being with Yoko and my own feelings on it. It should really have said ‘Lennon/Ono’ on that song, because she contributed a lot of that song.
    Alan White (drummer): Every song we did on Imagine, John would make us read the lyrics and insist that we understood the meaning of the song before started playing it. That had quite an impact for me.
    Klaus Voormann (bass): When we played ‘Imagine’ and heard the lyrics, the possibility that this was going to be such a big song was apparent. It definitely was. I even thought I didn’t want to play on it because it was so amazing with just John playing piano. It was so true and honest. That would have been enough. I hope you’ve got a version of just John playing it.
    Phil McDonald (engineer): ‘Imagine’ was one of the easiest tracks to record, almost all live, in a few takes. We mixed the track at Tittenhurst and Phil Spector added strings on top of the stereo tape in the USA.
    Yoko: John and I were both artists and we were living together, so we inspired each other. And the song ‘Imagine’ embodied what we believed together at the time. John and I met - he comes from the West and I come from the East - and still we are together. We have this oneness and ‘the whole world would eventually become one’ is the sense that we will all be café-au-lait colour and we will all be very happy together. All these instructions are for people for how to spend eternity, because we have lots of time.
    John: If you can imagine a world of peace, if you can imagine a world with no denominations of religion - not without religion, whatever religion is - but without this divisive ‘My god is bigger than your god’ business.... Then, if you can imagine the possibility, then it can be true.
    Yoko: ‘Imagine’ is a complete vision. A succinct bible of truth. It will start to unfold as you believe in it. The film? Well, it just happened naturally. I was well aware of the symbolism of everything - closing and then opening the shutters to let the light in. It’s rather personal, but I had a definite reason why I smiled at the end, in addition to loving being next to John.

What is this song? A joke, satirical masterpiece, or a political manifesto? Who can know that for certain? The genius cannot be fully understood by mortals. Just listen.

When I was a child this song sounded great. I also believed in Santa Clause the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. I do now understand the utopia he is singing about. every line of the first part of the song exists. NOW! TODAY! You can buy a ticket on a capitalist airplane, leave and never ever come back. No heaven, no religion, no possessions. Its called China. Don't worry. You people who continue piss on our Flag, our veterans , our history and our way of life will get what you want. Call me crazy. Within 50 years the REDS will be running the world. You will speaking Chinese. Read the Bible. Its kind of been the guide line for civilization for thousands of years. Revelation tells us whats coming. Nearly all love for the Father is gone.

I didn't get into john Lennons work until about a year ago. I'm 17 and I didn't really understand why my dad loved John Lennon so much to name me after him (Zakk Lennon Crocker) but once I got into The Beatles music and john Lennon's masterpieces such as this I know and I'm so glad I was named after him.

Really love this songs, it gives peace and quiet, it would have been an amazing peace song, excepting for one phrase, which im not agree with. When he sings "and no Religions too" , i think religion is way important for the human being, not all of them but the one and only the Catholicism. Otherwise invites people, not to believe in anything, and you will be great in life and thats not true. For the rest, well wrote.

For the last time, Lennon didn’t think The Beatles were more popular than Jesus He just thought they were more mainstreamed than him at the time Our world needs to calm down on their religion

LENNON WILL BE REMEMBERED MOSTLY FOR HIS UNCONTROLLABLE FLATULENCE. IF YOU LISTEN TO ANY BEATLES SONG, YOU CAN HEAR JOHN RIPPING SEVERAL BEAUTIES. IN FACT, AT LIVE PERFORMANCES, PEOPLE IN THE FRONT ROW WOULD OFTEN COMPLAIN ABOUT THE SMELL. BUT THAT DIDN'T STOP JOHN. HE WOULD CONTINUE TO RIP THEM LEFT AND RIGHT. AND THESE WERE RIPE ONES. VERY RIPE AND JUICY. ALSO, LENNON HATED HIS FANS SO BEFORE LIVE CONCERTS, HE WOULD EAT A SPICY MEXICAN DINNER WHICH MADE THE STINK EVEN MORE POTENT. PEOPLE WHO HAVE BOUGHT JOHN LENNON MEMORABILIA SUCH AS THE PANTS HE USED TO WEAR HAVE FILED LAWSUITS BECAUSE OF THE BROWN STAINS FROM JOHN'S FLATULENCE. IT GOT SO BAD THAT HIS FELLOW BAND MEMBERS OFFERED HIM BEANO. BUT JOHN REFUSED. HE SAID THE STINK GAVE FLAVOR TO HIS MUSIC. AND HE MEANT THAT LITERALLY AS THE FUMES WERE SO RICH AND THICK, YOU COULD ACTUALLY TASTE IT. JOHN LOVED BIG BEEF BURRITO SUPREMES BECAUSE IT GAVE HIS ANAL STINK MAXIMUM POTENCY. A SAD CASE REALLY. NOT TO MENTION HE WOULD THEN GO HOME AND BEAT UP HIS WIFE YOYOMA THEN GO INTO THE STUDIO THE NEXT DAY AND WRITE SONGS ABOUT PEACE. HE WAS ALSO A TRAITOR (SCARED TO GO TO VIETNAM) AND A BLASPHEMER (SAID HE WAS BETTER THAN JESUS). GOOD RIDDANCE TO THIS HORRIBLE STINKY MAN!! TRUMP2020
