Real Revolution | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/25/08
John Lennon is skeptical about political revolution, social reforms, and changes to the economic system. All of these so-called revolutions in the external, material world are illusory. They operate like a revolving door with each new regime replacing the old regime without any real change.
Don't you know that it is going to be alright ... just as it is, without any self-described do-gooders imposing their personal views of a better world on everyone else and thereby creating mischief and misery for others. Such do-gooders are on an ego-trip, playing mind-games.
The key to the song is the line: "You better free your mind instead". In other words, free your mind of its illusions, delusions, projections, fantasies, distortions, interpretations, and other conditioning and programming. To free your mind in this sense you must go beyond your mind and thereby be free OF your mind, your ego-mind.
John Lennon tells us how to transcend our mind in his song entitled "Watching the Wheels", and he tells us in his song entitled "Imagine" what we can experience by watching the wheels in his sense of the phrase.
One of the greatest songs ever written | Reviewer: Luke W.

The Beatles are an amazing band and they have influenced some of the many great bands that are playing today. John Lennon is an inspiration to myself and probably many others, and it is a shame that his talent was taken out of the world by some idiot who was trying to impress Jodie Foster. But nonetheless, the Beatles are amazing! I'm so excited to see Across the Universe, I know it will be something I will enjoy since I am a fan of musicals, and the Beatles! The two will hopefully mesh well.
Oh, and Brook Taylor? You're kind of lame :D
