And I'm sure Clear Channel will ban it again when the war with Korea starts.  That earlier banning (re: war on terrorism) shows that the corporate heads Lennon was directing his criticism at understood the dangers of inspiration.

I don't think corporate heads are the problem.    Blood-thirsty, ethnic-cleansing terrorist supporting American voters are the problem.

Yup, just rated John Lennon's "Imagine" a 3 (Ho Hum). Going to hell for sure. However, gave "Dear Prudence" a 9. Go figure.

Agree with the posts that note the irony of a person living in the Dakotas (NYC apartment building, not states) singing about anti-materialism.

But if it inspires others to imagine a different world, it works for me.

I LOVED John Lennon's work in The Beatles.  But this is the most fatuous pop song ever written.  While the lyrics tend to evoke the old warm-fuzzy in all of us, he was a BILLIONAIRE, living with his daughter-of-a-Japanese-industrialist, artist wannabe old lady in possibly the MOST exclusive apartment building in Manhattan singing "...imagine no possessions".  It don't git no mo' fatuous than that!  Sucko-barfo for utter insensitivity toward the entire world.

The failed answers to the mystery of life revealed as fails, then replaced in a moment of art, then the song ends, and the mystery goes on.  But a  trail of hope remains to be followed, in that tune that you can't quite get out of your mind.

I'll settle for reliable civility and a major decline in ethnocentric noise.  We can all go from there.

How very interesting to read here that not even in this forum it is possible to achive peace by simply let those who love this song love it, and those who do not love it, push the PSD button. It would be so simple.

No, instead there are insults and threads and general "if you do not think like I think I'll f... kill you" mentality all round!

All here should stop an think for a minute and listen to their own words and then realise, THAT is exactly what's wrong with this world!

And all this under a song like "Imagine"!

It is unbelievable! 

One just has to read here and it becomes clear that there will NEVER be peace on this planet. Never. What a shame! {#Daisy}
