"Imagine (John Lennon cover)" as written by and John Lennon....
Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
No religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

And you
You may say that I'm a dreamer
I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

    General CommentThis song is on Instant Karma, the campaign for Darfur. I am probably a terrible person for never hearing John Lennon actually sing it, but I thought Avril did a fantastic job with it. It didn't sound like her, it was so great. I loved it.

    General CommentI know that some Avril fans will attack me, but I must say that she "killed" Imagine. I don't like her cover.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful John Lennon song, and of all the new artists out there, they had to choose Avril Lavigne. Did they actually want to make the song sound hideous?
    I have no problem with Avril Lavigne, obviously she is a somewhat talented young women because she has a huge fan base and hit songs, but this just isn't right in any way.
    She needs to stick to her bubblegum pop songs, that is most definitely her forte.

    General CommentI'm rather taking offense to people who say she ruined it...because this song is the most beautiful song in the world, because of it's message...it is only sung by those who believe in the message. Avril Lavigne is singing this song to promote peace, and then some people have the nerve to say she ruined it? GlorifiedG, how do you know what Avril Lavigne thinks about this song? Have you discussed politics with her over a cup of coffee?

    So much for her good intention!! Fuck peace. Blah.

    General CommentIDK why anyone would downplay a person who takes on this song, generally..yeah they know they cant do this song justice..i mean..could ANYONE?...john lennon was amazing....especially when he sang this song...lets not be silly...people sing this song/cover for the MEANING...let it be IMO

    personal feelings, i think she did a decent job considering her vocal range, i like avril..do i think she has an omg amazing voice..no...but i love what she does, and generally most of her songs
