The late musician makes some good sense.
The video is the 7th one down.

Was that before or after his song:
“Back in the USSR. You don’t know how lucky you are.” ??
I didn’t view the link because the beatles sucked. Right up there with Micheal Jackson. I am entitled to my opinion since you posted this thread.
I always figured that was sarcasm. I mean if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao, you ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow.
My husband says, “The Beatles: Two down and two to go.”
“Oh Mr. Lennon, Oh Mr. Lennon!” Bang, Bang, Bang!
Also, more knew Mao was a front for the crown over there than here, so I vote sarcasm , too.
What is it that makes millions of people endow politicians (of all people!) and celebrities in general with absurd and undeserved admiration, "heroism", authority, and power???
I suppose they feel a need to project onto other people qualities that are simply not there.
But it's scary to think how many dumb people there are out there running around loose.
I was a big beatles but that’s funny right there!
You know that song was a joke, right?
Back in the USSR” was a Paul song but I get your point....
Excellent quote from Mr. Lennon
I’d say sarcasm. Didn’t Paul write that one? Always hated Paul
John has a point, though it’s sad it isn’t more coherent.
Instant karma’s gonna get you
That song was a tongue in cheek—supposed to be a take off on the Beach Boys’ hits.
Your husband is an asshole.
Then try these Lennon lyrics:
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...
Just curious. Did he write these lyrics in the back of his purple Rolls Royce limousine?
Sells better than reality.
I'm surprised to hear these words from Lennon. But you can't ever trust these dead white men, can you?
Even if thats what he really thought when he was alive, now that he's dead he's a dim voter for sure.
Of course, John's not dead. John's not dead.
Or if you play it backwards, it says:
.daed ton s'nhoJ .daed ton s'nhoJ
And it was a parody of the Beach Boys' "Back In The U.S.A." as if the "ooo woo woo" chorus didn't give that away. The extolling of "California Girls" was answered "The Ukraine girls really knock me out...they leave the West behind...and Moscow girls make me scream and shout...that Georgia's always on my mind."
Communism aside, the Beatles had a point.
A memorable entry from National Lampoon’s Letters FROM
the editors (appeared after John’s death)
Imagine no possessions. What a terrible, terrible thought.
—Yoko Ono, New York City
1 Playboy, January 1981,p.89
2 Penthouse,October, 1969, p.34
“Instinctive socialist” = socialist.
“believed on the abolition of “all money, police, and government” = anarchist.
The two are probably mutually exclusive. How can you redistribute wealth if there is no government to implement, no police to enforce and no money to seize?
I think Lennon was too complex and probably too confused to actually know himself— what he was really.
And apparently you are also an asshole. Don’t get nasty because my husband despises commies.
Your husband's an asshole for merrily cheering the death of two human beings, and breathlessly anticipating the death of two others. And here you are, "bragging" about your husband's mannish prowess on an internet chat forum.
Stay classy, honey.
What kind of country is this where John Lennon gets six bullets in the chest, and Yoko and standing right next to him and not a single bullet? - Dennis Leary
I had never heard this. One of John’s more lucid moments. Thanks for posting.
Comic Judy Tenuta imitating Yoko Ono: “’Please please please
kiss me kiss me ooh ahh ohh jus one kiss kiss will do...don’t go to walllllllllllllll(war)...don’t start a wallllllllllll...’-—why don’t you just stick an icepick in m head? I’m sorry, but if that guy (Mark David Chapman) had just aimed a lil’ bit to the left...he’d be a hero!”
Wow. Just wow. You call my husband and asshole and then tell me to be classy? Pot, meet kettle. Did I write that my husband cheers anybody’s death, merrily or otherwise? No. Now go back into your dark room, don your Beatles wig, bop your head around to “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, and “merrily” go have sex with yourself (a classy way of saying go phuck yourself). I must go now, I’m taking my son to the pool. I shall enjoy my day with my two favorite guys. My son and my asshole husband.
