There’s a meme going round some left wing blogs, quoting words from Imagine to mark the anniversary of the death of John Lennon. Here’s a quote from Lennon:
It’s only a fucking song.
I came across this somewhere recently. Lennon was, apparently, being visited in New York by a friend from Liverpool. Seeing Yoko Ono’s walk-in chiller for storing fur coats, the friend said, “Imagine no possessions, eh, John?”
John replied as above.
