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 isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion 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 some day you’ll join us And the world will be as one 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 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

    Lennon´s music will age better than McCartney´s, because Lennon´s compositions have more pain and heaviness, and besides that, are more innovative. McCartney has often conventional and “vertical” melodies, and Lennon has both vertical and “horizontal” melodies”.
    The greatness of John Lennon´s music as i see it:

    –His increasing tension. For example I Should Have Known Better. Before Lennon, all pop music structure was AABA, where the tension decreased in the middle part B. But with Lennon the tension from the verse continued in the middle part. Besides that, in this song it is not only a key change in the transition to the middle part, it is even a little key change in it.

    The increasing tension was what first characterized The Beatles. The first single where the verse lacked this increasing tension was the vers melody in Can´t Buy Me Love.

    – Other ways of increase the tension by Lennon is to pack together several little songs. Happiness Is A Warm Gun consists of three or four songs, and Bring On The Lucie consists of three songs.

    –All You Need Is Love has another way: First talking, then repeating half singing, then singing, and finally the climax in chorus.

    –The melody does not changes, but the chords in the background. For example in Strawberry Fields Forever and in Julia the singing melody uses the same notes, but instead the accompaniment changes! Listen to Puccini. He got tired of his sang melodies in Boheme and in Tosca he composed a lot where the sang melodies are often on the same notes, but the background changes instead. The effect can be stronger.

    –Octave Leap. For example, in the middle part of Please Please Me, Lennon makes an octave run in “…it´s so hard to reason with YOU…”, the climax of the song. George Martin didn´t understand the quality in that. In his orchestration of it in Off The Beatle Track, Martin excludes the octave, the most important bit of the song!

    –Verse and resolve. Typical for Lennon is a melody followed by a resolve, for example in No Reply “…I saw the light!”…and in Girl “giiirl! giiirl!…”. Lennon said that “a good song must have climax and resolve”.

    –Only one chord. In Tomorrow Never Knows there is only one chord, or bass note, an innovation in pop music. In the Middle Ages it was common with that bordun note, an unchanged bass note. When Lennon played the song the first time for George Martin, Martin didn´t like it.

    –Whole-tone scale. Most scales have both whole step and half steps between the notes in an octave. In the verse in Norwegian Wood, there is most whole steps, and that´s like the impressionists, for example Debussy. It sounds very “clean”.

    –Church Modes. A Hard Day´s Night is written in the “mixolydian mode”, an ancient vocal scale, preserved in British, Irish and American folk song. –If you play the beginning of Please Please Me very fast, you can hear the similarities with the Westminster bells ringing. When Lennon was a little boy, he loved visiting the divine services. Afterwards he used to improvise anthem music. Westminster bells could unconsciously have inspired him to the beginning of Please Please Me. There is also anthem music in the beginning of All You Need Is Love: “love love love…”.

    –The lamentation second. A little half step up in the scale. And that´s to indicate a pain. In All You Need Is Love Lennon sings the refrain twice unchanged and then suddenly the third time, rises a little, a very expressive and important step up. That step up started in the baroque epoch, and was called The lamentation second. When Lennon played it the first time to George Martin, Martin didn´t understand it. He leaned towards McCartney and muttered: “It´s certainly repetitive”.

    –From darkness to light. Happiness Is a Warm Gun starts with a little melancholy, and ends with enthusiasm.—In the middle part of I Am The Walrus the darkness switches over to light: “sitting in an English garden…”. And the transition from the chaos and darkness in Revolution 9 to the light in Good Night. That is very typical in Wagner´s music. I think that temperamentally the two were similar. And I think Wagner would have loved the arrangement in Glass Onion.

    –Suggestive and hypnotic music. With small intervals between the notes in combination with some dissonance chord, Lennon can create a suggestive and hypnotic feeling in for example Across The Universe. It is more like Wagner than pop music.

    –Few notes. With few, but effective notes, Lennon can create more feeling than McCartney with all his notes, for example in If I Fell and Love. –A melody sang three times, in succession, with just a little change every time. When you hear it you can get frustrated or desperate not getting out from the melody. That we have in the middle part in I Call Your Name and in the middle part in And Your Bird Can Sing. And at the same time the melodies are stick together with a countermelody at the guitar. Rather hypnotic

    –Melodies without joint. An innovation. When repeating the verse melody in Any Time At All, the first note is the same note as the last note in the first verse: “…there is nothing I won´t DO if need a shoulder to cry on…”

    –The accompaniment doesn´t follow the vocal line. In the middle part of Hey Bulldog, the piano doesn´t follow the singer. An innovation in pop music. (The first one was Schumann in his songs). It´s a marvelous bit of beautiful piano music, but the recording isn´t good here, the piano is difficult to hear. That bit is much better heard in a demo!

    –The first rap song. The talking in the end of Hey Bulldog.

    -The screaming, ending Hey Bulldog. In combination with the repeating melody in the guitarplaying in the background as if nothing has happened – that is great hypnotic music.

    –The most excellent and lovely melodies: The middle part of Bad to Me, the middle part of This Boy, the middle part of Yes it Is and the middle part of Nobody Loves You.

  11. Revered Randy says:

    It's definitely a great song, but I hate it when people put celebs into this God-like vacuum of esteem. He was only human,after all and when I hear people speak of him,as if they knew him personally,or,at the very least where even around at the height of his popularity meaning the 60s just makes me realize how dillusional people can be…..

  15. Avery Starkey says:

    my teacher asked my class to write down what we thought the perfect world would look like. I knew exactly what to do. i handed in the lyrics to this song. This song is what the perfect world would look like. my teacher handed back my paper and i failed. But i know that this song is what the world needs to hear. All we need is Peace.

  16. Luke Molter says:

    The song is good but I don’t agree with the message behind the song I personally think that John Lennon being a anarchist and socialist effected his music too much

  17. Alexmoon MX says:

    I think that if there were no religious beliefs, the world would be one because there would be no different point of view and that the world would live in a more peaceful way.

    God: I see here you wrote this song, Imagine? This isn't looking good on your records, but you also advised there may be no Hell below us. I probably don't need to point it out, but obviously, it is incorrect that there is "above us only sky", John.
    John: Sorry sir it won't happen again, see I just got shot-
    God: Look, John. George is going to be here in twenty or so years, and I can't keep cutting deals for people. So let's hope he doesn't write any religious songs in that time and I can let you through the gate, how about it?
    John: Many thanks, sir. If you know when George will get here, what about Paul and Ringo?
    God: Oh, those guys? Immortal.
    John: But that's-
    God: Impossible? Nope, after Paul and Ringo collaborate and make the best song ever created, I grant them three wishes. George wishes for his voice back, immortality, and his loved ones. Ringo wishes for the same, and they're famous forever. So yeah.
    John: huh

  50. Peter Zhang says:

    Why are there people against world peace? Is it because of the vagueness of the statement? Is it because it's a waste of time to daydream about something impossible? Seems to be better than some addictions. Is it because only certain ideologies are allowed to provide it?

    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 (ah ah ah)

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion, too

    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be 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 all the world

    You may say that 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
