 Imagine by John Lennon Songfacts
The second verse he says "imagine there's no country...nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too." He then says "imagine all the people LIVING LIFE IN FEAR." I take this as saying without a country (or a creator) to fall back on, people would be fear for their lives all the time.

 About the Imagine Campaign
“Imagine” expresses the hope and idealism that inspire Amnesty International’s vision: that of a world in which every person enjoys all of the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
In its appeal to the power of imagination, the song echoes Amnesty International’s faith in the power of the ordinary individual to make a difference.
Amnesty International, in turn, is the embodiment of what can be accomplished by those who dare to imagine a better world and who have the courage to act on their vision.

 The Blog | Sheldon Drobny: Imagine | The Huffington Post
When this song was released over 30 years ago, these lyrics created much controversy, but its wisdom has been confirmed, in my opinion, by the events that have occurred in the United States since 9/11.
Imagine was written during the Vietnam War many years ago when the message from the United States government was “ We need to fight communism because the communists are a threat to our existence and the communists are trying to take over the world”.
What made "Imagine" and his other works so effective, in my opinion, was his ability to take a topic of his day and draw out of it a larger point about our human condition.

 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: Imagine, John Lennon, CD, Remastered
One of John Lennon's finest post-Beatles recordings, IMAGINE displays the varied voices that made the former mop-top one of pop's most profoundly engaging and perplexing figures -- an idealist one minute, a cynic the next.
True to the songs, the arrangements are simple, with John at the piano or behind the guitar.
Imagine had become very familiar to most folks just from all the radio airplay most of the songs had received over the years.

 Amazon.com: Imagine: Music: Eva Cassidy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
In typical Eva style, the songs are all over the map, ranging from Paul Anka to John Lennon to Gordon Lightfoot to her beloved traditional tunes and beyond.
This song is, with only its minimal acoustic guitar (played by Cassidy) and the porcelain miracle of her voice, something of a longing look cast backwards--even if Cassidy didn't intend it to be.
Accompanied only by her guitar, which she handles adroitly, Eva sings this song as though she was truly "a long way from home" "missing her loved ones." Though this song is a bit less vocally than some of her other songs, it is difficult to avoid being impressed by the purity of her notes.

 John Lennon and Neil Young

Young's point was to remove a small arrogance from the song, to confess that even he, the self- sufficient mountain man, may not be able to let go of the material world.
Even his classic song 'Give Peace a Chance,' currently being re-recorded by his widow, Yoko Ono, and her pop-star friends, did not cast blame on the typical countercultural enemy, 'them.' Instead, it had a 'you' implied.

 "Imagine" -- A Wellness Theme Song?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
The song continues with this: "Imagine all the people, living for today." This is my favorite part, and one of the most popular themes in the health promotion literature, that is, the importance of appreciating each day of the life you have on this earth.
This, in short, is the "carpe diem" clause in John Lennon's "Imagine" and it's a magnificent sentiment.
In fact, this stanza ("Imagine there's no countries, It isn't hard to do") seems analogous to wishing that everyone could live illness free, happy-go-lucky lives until, say, 100 years had passed since their birth and then go peacefully into eternity in one's sleep, contented and pain-free.

In the annals of PJ fandom, there are a handful of unreleased songs that have obtained "legendary" status.
This song came to the forefront of everyone's minds again two years ago, when a tape surfaced of a lengthy soundcheck before the 1996 Barcelona show.
However, while the song occasionally surfaced in soundchecks, HtI did not have its live debut until the Montreal show on August 20; from the way the song is introduced, it sounds like this performance was as the result of a sign - of course, they did soundcheck it that day as well!

What no one has mentioned, directly anyway, is that the deepest value of the song is in the performance, which is one of the greatest singers of the 20th century at his most inclusive, centered and reverential.
You know and I know that "Imagine" is a sentimental song written primarily for preaching to the choir, which is perfectly acceptable, and in that sense the song is mediocre at the very worst.
It IS largely a hippie pop song and I too snicker when Joan Baez sings it in her comical falsetto at protest after protest.
