Imagine



Imagine, it was forty years ago today, John Lennon was assassinated outside the Dakota, his New York apartment building.

On that December Monday evening in 1980, long before the internet or cell phones, the world first learned of this tragedy from Howard Cosell on Monday Night Football.

Imagine..John has been gone for the same number of years as he lived. This year he would have turned eighty.

Here are some of John's quotes:
"Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans."
"All we are saying is give peace a chance..."
"Reality leaves a lot to the imagination."
"God is a concept by which we measure our pain."
"There's nothing you can know that isn't known."
"The more I see the less I know for sure."
"You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die."

Whenever I hear Imagine , it brings tears to my eyes. I am reminded of that night and think of how much has changed and how much remains the same.

Imagine
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
Ah, ah, ah-ah

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothin' to or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people livin' life in peace
Yoo, hoo, oo-oo

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be 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, oo-oo

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Whether you were a fan or not, John Lennon's music is timeless and unforgetable.

I remember that I had been listening to the Double Fantasy album earlier that day and then hearing the news on the radio. I sat and stared in disbelief wondering who would want to take that musical genius away from us.

I've always loved the line "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans." So true.

Completely agree. I first heard it from Cosell what a f'd up thing to do to anyone. Imagine if we actually had what he wrote.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

I head that song when I was stone and the first time I it was when I was sober and I just started crying. I t really touched me. I love this song.

The Light is shinning and she is lonely and waiting in the darkness.

I remember the news breaking even though I was barely a teen myself and how life ...breathing and the world around me just stopped for a few beats...all sound muting out. Incredibly sad and horrible loss on a l l of humanity

When you mentioned 40, I had to stop and do the math ; unbelievable, it's hard to imagine that much time has passed.
The song is a great and one I'll be listening to later on tonight.
Thanks for the reminder. Imagine if he had been still alive, how many great years of music we might have have had.

Many of us were stunned and listened to his music endlessly, trying to find comfort in his words. To be honest, although I have seen it many times, I didn't know, "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans." was one of John's quotes.

Yes, the number is hard to compute. His and other Beatles music had extended play yesterday on my various devices.

Indeed it's a shame that you don't. As someone else suggested, to learn more Google 'John Lennon' and 'The Beatles'.

I spent about three hours at the John & Yoko exhibition in Liverpool last year, a lot of people had a tear in their eye.

Yesterday, I watched a great interview with Sir Paul McCartney. It spoke fondly of their relationship and how he misses John everyday. It’s great to see you stopping by. Be safe and Merry Christmas 🎄.
