John Lennon’s Imagine

SONG REVIEW

BY Sameer Mubeen
songEVERYTHING will be okay in the end, if it’s not okay it’s not the end- these were the inspiring words of the ex-Beatle, John Lennon; a man who had created an empire in music in the UK and conquered the west with heart-warming lyrics and composition, still had a lot left in him for the welfare of humanity. He went on to release the single ‘Imagine’, which became his best-selling single in his solo career.
‘Imagine’ topped at number six on the UK Singles Chart. Following Lennon’s murder in 1980, the single re-entered the UK graph, achieving number one, where it stayed for a month in January 1981.
The song ‘Imagine’ is essentially the combination of primal mindfulness into a world development. It asks that we envision a world without religions or countries, and that such a world would mean fraternity and peace. The singing is deliberate however not by any means gifted, the tune undistinguished, aside from the scaffold, which sounds decent to me. Its verses urge the audience to envision a world settled without the hindrances of fringes or the divisions of religion and nationality and to think about how conceivable it is that the entire mankind would live unattached to material belonging. This tune is a solid political message that is sugarcoated in a delightful song. Lennon understood that the milder approach would convey the melody to a more extensive group of onlookers, who ideally would tune in to his message. Of the considerable number of tunes he composed and performed, huge numbers of which have had colossal effect on our way of life, ‘Imagine’ has the most reverberation. It has reached people from all walks of life, regardless of their age, race, gender and culture. A clear message stating to put an end to artificial and man-made disasters had been imprinted in this song by John Lennon.

Like Lennon himself, ‘Imagine’ is complex. At first tune in, it’s anything but difficult to consider it something basic: an anthem, a tune of peace, a piano-determined tune. In any case, the call of peace requires the cancelation of what we regularly stick to generally, furiously. It’s not an outline, with guidelines on the most proficient method to surrender a portion of the parameters by which we characterise ourselves, however a call for us to envision something that appears to be unbelievable on the planet we live in.
