******Imagine review here: (
*****The Best!
****It's been played to death. And became an anthem to a Lennon that really never existed. He sang about a world without possessions while living the life of the rich. Cars, homes, etc. So who exactly was he singing about?
****An aside: on the Milk and Honey track I Don't Stand It he screams that when he looks in the mirror he doesn't see anyone standing sends chills up and down my spine. Listen tot he song...he sings all about being a hypocrite "I can dish it out but I just can't take it"...and "you want to save humanity but it's people you can't stand." You ask he was pretty unhappy and screwed up.
***The track on Milk & Honey is ""I Don't Wanna Face It". Sorry for the typo
** I don't think Imagine is the worst song of all time. Although I do get some of the criticism that it was written by a man who was a multi millionaire. "I Don't Wanna Face It" is a good example of John being a very complicated man. Heck there are songs right on the Imagine album that are odd coming from the man who was just singing about the World being one. I mean "Crippled Inside", "How Do You Sleep?", and "How" come to mind.
*Don't forget to IMAGINE. That's what the song is saying. We may never see a perfect world but if we all imagine one, the world will be a better place as a result.
Yep, it's one of his many Utopian anthems (All You Need Is Love, Across the Universe, etc.). It's just that I've heard it so MANY times, it's kind of like Yesterday with all the airplay.
