Transcript of SOAPSTone Song
Speaker John Lennon, former Beatle, used his influence to speak about world peace. Lennon was a political activist along with his wife, Yoko Ono. Together, they worked toward a peaceful world, without hate or war or violence. "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."
Occasion "Imagine" was released in 1971. There were wars, and violence and hate all over the world, like there still is today. Lennon's song was the most successful of his solo career, and it's seen across the world as an ispiration. The tone of this song is hopeful and optimistic. Lennon sings of serious issues, like "Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too." Many of the lyrics begin with "Imagine...", inspiring the listener to think about a different, more positive world. by John Lennon Audience Purpose Subject Tone The main subject of "Imagine" is living in a peaceful world, much different than the one we live in. "Imagine all the people living life in peace" Lennon's purpose in writing/singing "Imagine" was to inspire listeners to change their views of the world. "Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can. No need for greed and hunger. A brotherhood of man." He is almost desperately asking for a change in the world. "Imagine" was intended to inspire everyone to work towards a more peaceful world. Lennon speaks to the world in the beginning, "Imagine there's no heaven. It's easy if you try. No hell below us, above us only sky." In the second verse, Lennon speaks to the power-hunger leaders of the world: "Imagine there's no countries. It isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for." At the end, he addresses to the greedy: "Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can. No need for greed or hunger."
