You know, I've got nothing whatsoever against "Imagine" - not really one of my favorites, the lyrics is somewhat... I don't know, too shallow to my taste, but it's a beautiful song, no doubt. It's just, everytime I hear it, it reminds me of the most ridicolous, stupid, idiotic...I don't what else, comment I have ever read in a book I once had: "Paul McCartney - could he have imagined "Imagine?" :
I have no idea who's the genius that wrote this, if I had any idea where I tossed this book I'd check - I haven't seen it for quite a few years. But whenever I think of it it just makes me want to shout: "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU WANT FROM PAUL McCARTNEY? Dame it, you don't like Paul - fine, don't say anything about him. YES, "Imagine" is a beautiful song, it shows that John was very talented, SO WHAT? WHAT THE HELL does Paul McCartney have to do with it? WHY do John fans have to use every little thing to show how inferior Paul was to him? Are they feeling so insecure about their idol? Why does Paul bashing have to be a part of worshiping John? Whereas Paul fans have no problem to show love and respect for John. It's just one of the things that made me grow resentful towards John in the first place. Simply disgusting, I have no other word.
