Remembering John Lenon

John Lenon - The Legend whose Dreams will never Die!


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 isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
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 Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

-- John Lennon

I would like to remember John Lenon through these lines. They sound so simple, yet only when you delve into the details, you realise how difficult it is to achieve it. But the dream is a 'beautiful' one and I just hope that atleast we live to see this dream. Sounds 'far fetched' again!!! But, would it ever sound 'near and attainable'?
Now again, do I sound pessimistic or is it just a realistic thought?

John Lenon: biography
1940 - 1980

Pop star, composer, songwriter, and recording artist, born in Liverpool, Merseyside, NW England, UK. He was the Beatles rhythm guitarist, keyboard player, and vocalist, and a partner in the Lennon--McCartney song-writing team. He married Japanese artist Yoko Ono (1933-- ) - his second marriage - in 1969. Together they invented a form of peace protest by staying in bed while being filmed and interviewed, and the single recorded under the name of The Plastic Ono Band, "Give Peace a Chance' (1969), became the "national anthem' for pacifists. He had five more chart singles between 1971--4, but only "Imagine' (1971) had any immediate impact. On the birth of his son, Sean (1975-- ), he retired from music to become a house-husband. Five years later he recorded "(Just Like) Starting Over', but he was shot and killed by a deranged fan just before its release. His death affected millions of people, record sales soared, and he continues to be admired by new generations of fans.
