Jonh Lennon, when you think of it, had a couple communist ideas. In Imagine, he talks about everyone being equal in everything and be one. And he was a hypocrite. He sung about no possessions, yet he still lived in a top notch home with millions. I think he was a douchebag. I'm all for peace, but getting rid of countries would get rid of who we are. I'm all for getting rid of religion and possessions, but most of what he sings about is basically communist and retarded. I don't believe he deserved to get shot, but i still didn't like his ideas.

My mother and father always had the radio on when I was little, an as I turned about ten, I learned that The Beatles were amazingly perfect, I praise music because of them, John Lennon was to be a great man, and now he rests with the rest.
John rules | Reviewer: Ian | 12/8/08
A man who genuinely cared. Although his physical presence is no longer with us, his memory and music will live on. You have touched many hearts, John. You've touched mine. Thank you... for everything.
And always remember, give peace a chance!
A Spirited Messenger with an Eternal Message | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/27/08
The message of John Lennon is expressed in the lyrics to some of the songs he wrote, after the Beatles visited Maharishi Mahesh Yogi at his ashram in India in February, 1968. The message is included in at least five songs, listed below in chronological order by date of first release.
• Revolution (with Paul McCartney; "TB-WA" album, November 25, 1968)
• Two Minutes Silence ("LWL" album, May 26, 1969)
• Working Class Hero ("JL/POB" album, December 11, 1970)
• Imagine ("I" album, September 9, 1971; a world anthem of peace)
• Mind Games ("MG" album, November 2, 1973)
• Watching the Wheels ("DF" album, November 17, 1980)
All but the second song is reviewed by the present reviewer in the past three days.
John Lennon’s message is the timeless message of all mystics and spiritually enlightened ones, expressed most beautifully in the ancient Eastern wisdom of the Upanishads: We are all enlightened, just we have forgotten it. Be aware of who and what you are. To help remember, go within (e.g., using techniques of meditation to go beyond the mind) and thereby directly, immediately experience the innermost center of being, the nondual oneness, where one can experience inner peace, love, freedom, truth, bliss, or whatever name is preferred for the existential experience of the nameless unknowable mystery.
John Lennon was no mystic, but he was a poet. John advocated meditation (meditation techniques as well as the meditative state of consciousness). The ultimate state of consciousness known as spiritual enlightenment cannot be reached by artificial, temporary means such as drugs. He is not known to have mentioned any personal, first-hand experience of the beyond. Nevertheless, he may have experienced a radical, transformative change during his spiritual development. Such an experience could be the basis for his poetic expression of that highest state of being.
Rest in Peace, John Lennon
For Lucy Lennon | Reviewer: Angelo
Although Lennon would publicly lament this period, he did not do so in private. Journalist Larry Kane, who befriended Lennon in 1964, wrote a comprehensive biography of Lennon which detailed the “Lost Weekend” period. In the interview with Kane, Lennon explained his feelings about his time with Pang: “You know Larry, I may have been the happiest I’ve ever been… I loved this woman, [Pang] I made some beautiful music and I got so fucked up with booze and shit and whatever.”
John said it himself Lucy. Remember once something is written you can’t take it back!!!
I know you will try to turn it around but don’t bother. Everyone cover your ears and say LALALALALALALALA
