Review about John Lennon songs
women are second class citizens everywhere | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Woman is the Nigger of the World performed by John Lennon

Women have to be concerned with violence against them everywhere they go just because they are women-- this is not true for men. The men that hate women that have commented here are proof of that. Physically we are always in danger. We live our lives looking over our shoulders hoping that it wont be us.There is no safe place for us on this planet.We will always be the second class citizen-- we are used as payment and barter and trade and killed and maimed as property. This is the reality-- saying anything different is lying.

Huge influence on punk rock. | Reviewer: Ahmet Kemal
    ------ About the song Working Class Hero performed by John Lennon

I don't think there would be punk rock without John Lennon,specially without this song.I don't have any extensive research to back that up,but just a gut feeling.Who was questioning and defying cultural norms of submission to capitalism before him?And he did it in such a chill way,he never made a big angry stink about it,he simply asked the questions,These days,it seems like Kurt Cobains dynasty is still running it's course,but he didn't sing with unfiltered conscious like John Lennon.

    ------ About the song Imagine performed by John Lennon

'Imagine' was covered by the band A Perfect Circle. If you listen to John Lennon's original, and then listen to A Perfect Circle's version, it is interesting to me to account for the many years that have passed since John Lennon wrote the song. Even today we have to live in a more complicated, hurried world. I think where has our hope gone? Our compassion... Our collective consciousness? Will WE ever be One? John Lennon's Imagine is PERFECT, and A Perfect Circles interpretation of the song illustrates the evolution of our worlds direction as a whole.

As One | Reviewer: Ed Robson
    ------ About the song Imagine performed by John Lennon

After a few comments it is like the song, self awareness and self identity is a hard habit. This great song works to Imagine, no attack of identity. Purely to wonder how fine things could possibly be without people seeing the differences of: religion, possessions, wealth, survival, food etc and having enough insight & compassion to share all and all efforts for each other.
We are all really part of the same thing but our world does not unfortunately balance the way of this songs utopian idea. It is an aspiring thought though.

    ------ About the song Imagine performed by John Lennon

You have to enjoy the song for what it is and for the brilliance of the writer. If you have studied Marx you can see the correlation. Unfortunately if we ever have a new world order as some of you have suggested, there will be some powerful people at the top and we will not be free like the song.

Don't Let Me Down | Reviewer: Tiffany Collins
    ------ About the song Don't Let Me Down performed by John Lennon

I believe this is an amazing song that holds a lot of truth and his wife Yoko should be pleased that he wrote this for her. This song is classic John Lennon. I may only be eighteen, but I know great music when I hear it!

one day.. | Reviewer: Vusal Quliyev (Qafanli, Turkic)
    ------ About the song My Mummy's Dead performed by John Lennon

i'm afraid of one day i also will sing this song by heart, with feeling same with John..i'm really afraid, scare, but who can stop the life..it goes on,never stops and keeps taking away our lovers from us..

Critical Thinking | Reviewer: Hope
    ------ About the song Imagine performed by John Lennon

Critical Thinking is my perception of John Lennon' song "Imagine." We, as people of humankind, may and will differ in interpretation of it's meaning. Unfortunately, John and I did not converse to ascertain his personal interpretation. However, had John and I engaged in specific confirming dialogue...we all may and will differ in our interpretation of the lyrics meaning. All aspects of humankind diversity which includes beliefs in Faith, Christianity, Ethnicity, Race, Environment, Age, Gender, Affluence-finance, power as list continues on. In my opinion, moments such as these are enlightening and we must learn and can 'respectfully' agree to disagree. As I listen to the lyrics of "Imagine" trigger thoughts of Love, Hope and Peace in a world absent of judgement, ridicule, ignorance, but imagine what are the possibilities, and effects ...positive or not; 'imagine' Critical Thinking!
LAs I listen to the song's music and lyrics of John's "Imagine",

Like a UFO | Reviewer: Toni
    ------ About the song Out The Blue performed by John Lennon

He was the absolute greatest songwriter of all time as well as greatest voice in rock and roll. LOVE LOVE LOVE Out the Blue. John swore he saw a UFO by the way.....when he was in NY with May Pang. Anyway it was 33 yrs. ago today...
so sad. Been thinking of him all day and this song has been with all day as well.
RIP Beloved John thanks for the greatest music of our lives.

i relate totally to this | Reviewer: lucy
    ------ About the song Cold Turkey performed by John Lennon

I vividly remember reading these lyrics in the 1980's off the imagine album when I was a little girl wondering what on earth they meant. Sadly today after my stupid gp putting me onto prescription opiates for mild back pain I now totally feel exactly like the words of this song. Withdrawal from opiates is hell. John was so talented at conveying this feeling 100% accurately.
