Throwback Friday: “Imagine” by John Lennon

I’m amazed that John Lennon’s original version of “Imagine” only reached #3 on the Billboard charts while he was alive (it later reached #1 after his death). At the same time it is a universal, classic song of hope and peace that has been covered by numerous artists such as Joan Baez, Dolly Parton, Rick Springfield, and Tracie Spencer. In New York’s Times Square, what a sobering moment it was for me to hear “Imagine” playing just before the stroke of midnight as has become the tradition. I was watching on television, and can only imagine (no pun intended..ha ha) what it must feel like actually standing out in Times Square in that moment.
