Now, c'mon: didn't that pesky war work out just fine for everybody? I'll bet Bill wants his portrait done! 

Still a great song after all these years. A lot of John's solo work seems dated to me but not this. 

John Lennon: GOD - John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band (1970). Is a song from John Lennon's first post-Beatles solo album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. The album was released on December 11, 1970 in the US.
Personnel in studio-album:
John Lennon: vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, piano/keyboards;  Klaus Voormann: bass;   Ringo Starr: drums;  Phil Spector: piano;   Billy Preston: piano on "God";  Yoko Ono: wind;  Mal Evans: "tea and sympathy".

Lyrics:

God is a concept,
By which we can measure,
Our pain,
I'll say it again,
God is a concept,
By which we can measure,
Our pain,
I don't believe in magic,
I don't believe in I-ching,
I don't believe in bible,
I don't believe in tarot,
I don't believe in Hitler,
I don't believe in Jesus,
I don't believe in Kennedy,
I don't believe in Buddha,
I don't believe in mantra,
I don't believe in Gita,
I don't believe in yoga,
I don't believe in kings,
I don't believe in Elvis,
I don't believe in Zimmerman,
I don't believe in Beatles,
I just believe in me,
Yoko and me,
And that's reality.
The dream is over,
What can I say?
The dream is over,
Yesterday,
I was dreamweaver,
But now I'm reborn,
I was the walrus,
But now I'm John,
And so dear friends,
You just have to carry on,
The dream is over.

John Winston Ono Lennon,  (9 October 1940 - 8 December 1980)

So much charachter in his face, you can bet he spent a good lot of his life smiling :)
I have been to a few rallies where this guy didnt show up.
After i took this summer, i never saw him again.
Im glad i had a chance to take his picture again
He was protesting with two signs, the first saying "give peace a chance" and the second was a yellow submarine.
Great guy, amazing sense of life, and a beatles fan ;)

John Lennon - Live in New York City (1972)

"he in combat uniform sings peace song ...it's john lennon!"

"no john ur definately not the only one"

Strange coincidence: I was just listening to this song off of Lennon's Legend, and switched over to RP to see what's up. Same song. I guess with the world poised for a completely unnecessary and stupid world war it's not too surprising. The British playwrite Harold Pinter had something timely to say about this in an article in the Daily Telegraph "The American administration is a bloodthirsty wild animal", though I doubt anything anyone can say at this point will keep Dubya from pushing the button, the demons whispering in his ear are apparently all he hears. The history books will not look favourably on the US after this all begins, and I suppose Dubya can at least be consoled by not simply being remembered as a president with a dimmer bulb than Warren Harding. That an unelected leader could do so much damage to his country (waging war, the destruction of thirty years of environmental, health and safety, and other "liberal" social legislation, big tax giveaways to the wealthy, turning world opinion against the US, etc.) hardly speaks well for the state of the union. I wish John Lennon and Martin Luther King Jr. were still around; we don't hear the language of social justice much anymore. :(
People always flame when you respond to a song in a political fashion on this site. But, with a song like this, and the previous comments, I don\'t see anyway around it. I think this song probably was allot more realistic when he wrote and sang it than it is in this current crisis today. Things are much different now. Anyone who can\'t see that needs to wake up. Peace is an ideal that everyone should strive for. But at this point, I think it would be ignorant bliss.
This is good stuff. And timely. Peace. :)
Where are the lighters? :) ;)
Just wish Dubbya would listen to this Fat chance of that.... theres no money in peace :evil:
