I think this song is simple yet beautiful and sincere. The message to it is so simple: come together as a human race and imagine a better world. Yes, it may be "un-realistic" but just imagine this world as he puts it? Wouldn't it be nice? I dunno, I just love this song but again I do appreciate your opinion.

Also, he was known for being a real asshole in person, insufferable genious at best. And yet he wrote a few overrated songs about world peace, had a bed-in, and people see him as some kind of heroic savior of the human race. And of course that's the image of him that will always exist since he got shot.

oops.

Lennon wasn't perfect but who the hell is? Bono, as much as I love that man, is not perfect. But I can somehow see your point, Lennon was a man who preached the message of peace and love for the world, yet he was a rich man and quite frankly he was the opposite of that.

He was arrogant, egotistical, unfaithful and yes, he put people down as he saw fit. However, it is this contradiction of himself that made him who he was. He had many faults but at the same time he was a man who could write songs that spoked to millions of people. He wrote songs about world peace, sharing the wealth, and coming together as one and for this some call him a hypocrite. Nevertheless, he was also asking people to find peace for themselves in their lives; something I feel Lennon was looking for himself. He openly wrote about his and all his insecurites, he never denied to the world who he was. This to me makes him human.

The way I see it, the beauty of John Lennon is that he was this self-proclaimed hero, who wrote honest lyrics and wasn’t afraid to speak his mind. He was a bastard with a sincere heart and a straightforward view of the world. His life to me was more of a soul-searching journey, one we all go through as humans. He was at war with his own demons and all he was trying to do was overcome them.

Of course that is just my opinion as well!

Ok yesterday morning I bought the Double Fantasy album. So far, I like it. However, I dont' know how much longer I can stand Yoko!! In the song "Beautiful Boys", which I'm assuming this is about Lennon and Sean....her vocals are god-awful. However, I do like the lyrics. But the voice.. YOKO

I also don't know if I can take her orgasmic ending to KISS KISS KISS


I'm still feeling some tracks on the album but overall I'm enjoying it, minus of course most of Yoko's songs!

Oh yeah....



I John Lennon too!

I know what you mean rebeljamesdean. I do love the guy's music including some of his solo stuff...was listening to the compilation I own and really enjoying it last night.

I think some people forget that he was incredibly human, as you mentioned.

(looking back at what I wrote I might have been a little too harsh )

I've never cared for Yokos music(though a few years ago some of her stuff from the 70s ended up being loved by alot of hipsters I knew. They thought anything with a chorus sucked.

My advice is to pick up Milk and honey. They're some unreleased songs from the double fantasy sessions. You have to keep in mind none of them are done, they were just demos, though most of the words are in place and the band have the rough Idea of what Lennon wanted then to play. You can make a great CD using all the Lennon tracks from M and H and DF

As was mentioned earlier POB, Imagine and Walls and bridges were all great albums, and quite different from one another

The story goes that Lennon had trouble finding a label to distribute this record (this was after Apple stopped doing anything useful) since he insisted that they sign Yoko as well. Imagine sucking so hard that record companies won't sign John Fucking Lennon because you're coming along with him.

No problem, I think you brought up a very good point. Because everything you mentioned about Johbn Lennon he was. Sometimes people do forget that these music legends were not perferfect; many had their faults.

I saw it on the A&E channel back in December and they re-showed it a few weeks ago (early February).

I was reading the magazine UNCUT Legends... the issue on John Lennon.... I was staring at the cover and thinking there's something about him that is so appealing.

BTW how adorable are these baby pics?





BTW- There was another story I saw on Lennon called "THE ASSASINATION OF JOHN LENNON" a while back- my best bud just called me to tell me he finished watching it on TV, and thought of me! LOL

So if you check the A&E channel, I'm sure they will re-show it in the future.

Yeah. There's a webpage where you can order past magazine issues. I don't have the link with me right now because I'm at school, but it's a cool site.

A John Lennon Quote:


“Without Jimmy Dean, the Beatles never would have existed.”

I love that quote!
