"Imagine" in a politcal ad

Postby cd1500rpm » Mon Oct 27, 2008 9:53 pm

Anyone from California seen the political ad with a children's choir singing Imagine? I can't remember what proposition it's for.

For those who haven't seen it, Jamie Lee Curtis is featured in the ad. She's conducting the choir that's singing Imagine. It's for a good cause but I'm baffled as to why Ono allowed the song to be used in a politcal ad.

It's screams "left wing". I can't "Imagine" (no pun intended) a republican featuring "Imagine".
I go back so far... I'm in front of me!

some cherubic 16 year old from northern ireland massacred Imagine on the X Factor (our version of American Idol) the other week. I almost cringed myself to an early grave. It wasn't very John Lennon!
