Lennon’s Imagine album was very much like Marvin Gaye’s album What’s Going On in the sense that in both you had an album’s worth of work that would be hugely influential and feature a number of songs that would leave an indelible mark in the music landscape. In fact such was the strength of both albums that there’s a good argument to suggest that the men would never reach that height of success artistically, creatively and commercially on an album ever again afterwards.
This song from Lennon is an example of just a brilliant song from a man free to express himself without the restraints of three other guys or a system in which he had to conform to an expected idea. Lyrically clever song and emoted so well by Lennon himself. Enjoy.
