I'm glad someone spoke up and gave an honest opinion of "Imagine." I really love the song, but I'm tired of it being eulogized and proclaimed to be his best song. That's utter rubbish, because no one can ascertain for the general what anyone's best song is.
Personally, I'm a fan of his obscure, lesser-known, lesser-appreciated songs. I LOVE to death things like "Oh My Love" and "Out the Blue" and "Tight A$" and "Nobody Loves You (When You're Down and Out" and "Remember", "I Found Out", "Crippled Inside" and everything that's on Milk and Honey and, God, his demos...they are seriously beautiful.
He has soooo many gorgeous, gorgeous songs that just send shivers up my spine and what do I hear people say? "Oh "Imagine." I think I could go on the rest of my life not hearing that song again and be fine. But the others? Never take them from me. I guess I'm one of the few, strange John fans. Don't know...
But anyway..."Starting Over"? I love it. Great fun, great song, who cares if there's no message. People like Paul's music and he rarely says much. If you like a song for whatever reason, that's all that matters.
