Imagine it’s the first time you’ve heard it. Imagine it as a modern day spiritual theme to transcendentalism. Beneath all the tumult and brouhaha of the ending of the greatest pop group lies this, one of Lennon’s prettiest tunes. Just simple skills of arrangement and song craft rolled into a lyric that for many is a dream, albeit far beyond reality in a cold, fractured, uncaring world.
