Imagine – 100 Best Songs

Next up on my list of the 100 Best Songs of all time, is Imagine by John Lennon.

Imagine is a beautiful song in every way. The melody, the piano accompaniment and the message of peace and harmony all combine into a lovely experience for the mind, the ear and the heart.

The song’s message is a simple one, but a somewhat counter-culture one, particularly for a song that ended up being so popular. The song suggests that the world would be a better place without religion, nationality and personal possessions, which are all pillars of modern society.

It’s an interesting scenario to consider. It is hard to picture such a world ever actually existing and if it did, I suspect we’d just find other things to disagree about, but the idea of a peaceful world where everyone gets along is a nice one.

Aside from the message, Imagine is a pleasant song to listen to and sing along with and one that I never tired of hearing.
