    Imagine, 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
    Livin' for today
    Aaa haa

    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
    Livin' life in peace
    Yoo hoo

    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
    Sharin' all the world
    Yoo hoo

    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

    I wasn't keen on the Beatles, though they did some good stuff. But John Lennon was a complete and utter genius and saying that, Imagine was pure brilliance. From hearing it in my cot as a babe to now it's still one of my favourite songs. Thanks for the thread

    I've listened intently to Imagine, Give Peace A Chance, Let It Be, and many other Beatles songs in the last few days because of all the turmoil going on in America right now. I've always turned to The Beatles for comfort in difficult times. Their music comforts me.

    Imagine is one of the reasons I love the Fab Four after the Beatles. Such a wonderful song of unity, peace, and setting aside the things that divide and cause strife.

    Off topic, but maybe you can answer this one for me.
    Why is Yoko just sitting their knitting in the Instant Karma video while everybody else has a little boogie going on?

    I don't know. All I will say is that Yoko is an interesting person.

    As I hardly know anything else about her, I've always seen her as an odd one. Based on just that, appearing entirely uninterested in the video she has a part in. How was she able to not sing and sway along with the crowd?
