Good selection, wrong board
I thought about posting it to 73q, but I decided that was ultimately inappropriate. The song was intended to spark controversy, and 73q doesn't seem to be a hotbed of discussion. Also, people generally only post songs or artists they actually like on 73q. That's why it's here instead.

Hm. Imagine is quite a nice song.
I always found the stuff to be a little bland. Like weak tea: agreeable but not awesome.
BBBS -- you might like John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. It was after his encounter with primal scream therapy and it is very raw and insane.
Anyway all of the Beatles had some great material and a great deal of unlistenable material after they broke up. Lots of people choose to overlook John's horrible crap because MARTYR but he wasn't too far ahead of Paul in terms of quality while he was alive. Paul unfortunately lived long enough to give the world "Spies Like Us" and whatever other crap he's done since.
This song is ok.
What the hell is he chewing? He chews in every clip I see him in.
"Imagine" and John Lennon's whole post-Beatles hippy schtick was like, 5-6 years too late and the whole music press just kissed his ass like he reinvented music. Imagine if "Imagine" had come out in say, 1965.
Probably my favorite post-Beatle Beatles stuff came from George.
Paul would come in second for basically keeping on with the same thing he'd always done, cranking out happy little (sometimes kind of annoying but you gotta admit, catchy) pop songs like the Beatles never broke up. I'll take "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" over "Imagine" any time.
Apparently if you asked George Harrison to sign a Beatles record he'd offer to do the signatures for the other three.
Oh and he paid for Life of Brian.
George Harrison was the best Beatle.
I honestly don't care for any of Lennon's solo stuff at all, including Plastic Ono Band, which I imagine must have been raw and shocking at the time it came out, but doesn't hold up for me at all.
He had that one reasonable album, but this is not good. Especially the honky saxophone.
Yoko is the nigger of the woman.
"And that's why I beat the shit out of my frst wife and cut my first son out of my life because I dig jap pussy and I'm basically a draft dodging fucking cunt who paints himself as ghandi."
giantatomicfreak just sent lennon to the burn ward
I'll say it: he was shot for all the right reasons.

John Lennon was worse than hitler and stalin put together
he was imagining there was no religion too while he did it
+5 for the basement-dwelling & crapping on John Lennon.

This makes me dislike Yoko in new ways. It's like she's a less talented, more attention hungry Courtney Love.
Her name is now Proto-Love.

Just think of how far above everyone else you have to consider yourself in order to think it's OK to write and perform this song.
It baffles me sometimes that I take so much influence from a guy who was generally a huge asshole behind the scenes.
The title made me think of that Tom Waits song. Tom Waits should cover this.
That Paul McCartney Christmas song is 10x worse

I have recently been saying that "X is the nigger of the world" over and over. It's getting on people's nerves and they don't get it, so I guess some stars are in order for that. But jesus John Lennon sucked.
I'm a big fan of post-Beatles Lennon. My girlfriend loves post-Beatles Paul. She's wrong.
