44 Years Ago Today....

www.wikipedia.org
44 years ago today, John Lennon released his iconic album "Imagine". What can be said about this album that already hasn't been said? It is the very definition of a masterpiece. Imagine is home to one of his most legendary songs ever, aptly named Imagine. Some other great songs that call his album home include: "How Do You Sleep at Night", "Crippled Inside", "Oh Yoko", "Jealous Guy", and one of my favorite Lennon songs ever "Oh My Love".


"Imagine" is different that its predecessor "Plastic Ono Band". While "Plastic Ono Band" is an angry record, "Imagine" is not. It has moments of quiet reflection, love, and angry. For me, this album is yet another reason why John Lennon is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, song writer of all time.
