Imagine – John Lenon

Imagine is a song written and performed by John Lenon. This song belongs to the category of soft rock which became the best selling solo of his career. Imagine was released in 11th October 1971 and it was recorded at Ascot sound studios New York. The length of the song is 3.03. One month after the release of this song, the song peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and the LP reached number one on the UK chart in November and later it became the most commercially successful song of John Lenon’s career. Although not originally released as a single in the UK, it was released in 1975 to promote a compliation LP and it reached number 6 in the chart that year. This song earned a Grammy Hall of Fame Award and an induction into the Rock and ...view middle of the document...

He lived in 1940-1980 dying at the age of 40 by assassination in his own apartment. This brings along one of John Lenon’s most controversial songs “Imagine”. Both Beatles and strictly John Lenon fans would label this particular song, a masterpiece.
In this song “Imagine” he promotes the idea of peace among humans with no religion, possesions, or countries “nothing to kill or dies for”, but just to live for today. The Piano is used as the main instrument while chords used in the song were simply yet moving, not at all like the techno-electric, auto tuned sounds that we put in our music nowadays. Throughout the song, only two chords were generally incorporated. These two chords were C major and F major, or a perfect fourth, As a particulary perceptive musician will notice, these two chords are the same chords used to end a hymn in a religious service. Coincidence? Most likely. I imagine that John Lenon was fiddling around with chords that had a calm, peaceful, yet moving peal when played continuously, and discovered that C major and F major fit the song the most.
Also, when the song reaches a climax, it moves onto the other chords, then returns to C major and F major. This exemplifies the fact that music is much like literature. The melody of the song is gentle and makes people calm and relaxed while it has a strong beat and a tempo.
The main reason I loved this song is the music. It was very calm, soothing and pleasing to the ears. The melody doesn’t change from a low octave to a high octave in fast succession and flows nicely. It sounded very cheery and I imagined very bright colors. Overall, this song is a classic and has become an interesting paper topic beacause of its music, melody and lyrics. This song is a perfect example of why so many people still love John Lennon and his music today.
