forty years ago this week "imagine" made its first appearance in the top 40 at number 20. the single never made it to number one but at todays standards its an anthem.

this song has always touched my heart.
where were you when you heard it for the first time?

as a grandpaw my granddaughter will know and love this song. I've heard of people naming their child imagine.

its the only song I've ever known to become more popular over each passing year.

When my daughter was 12, her teacher asked each class member to bring in a CD of a song that meant something to them.
She brought in Imagine.
Every child knew the words and all 15 of them sang along to John Lennon. I'm sure he would have loved it. (She went to a wonderful school.)

I can't remember where or when I first heard it, has long been a fave of mine.
I do remember one cold December night my father woke me up urgently to come watch the TV. Monday Night Footbal, NE vs. MIA, Howard Cossell," In the end, this is only a game. We have more important things to talk about. A few hours ago John Lennon was shot four times out side his apartment in New York city....."

I heard it in english class in middle school for the first time. our australian teacher was teaching us the lyrics. same time i learned the meaning of the word imagine. it sounded stupid at first but I liked it more as I grow up.

about this week in time it had moved into the top five, imagine didn't hang around long. the album did make it to number 1.

a friend had told me that a track from john lennons new album was being played every 30 minutes on the radio. it was true "its so hard" i thought wow sounds like cold turkey and i was a little disappointed. then it was jealous guy, then imagine, you wouldn't believe what type of radio i had.

and to say the least my life was never the same

This song always reminds me of that episode of WKRP in Cincinnati where the religious guy didn't want them to play the song on their station because of the line " Imagine there's no Heaven "

Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try
No people below us, above it's only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries, it isn't hard to do
No need to kill or die for and no religions too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

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


Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger a brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing for the world

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

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
Take my hand and join us
And the world will live, will live as one
