John Lennon - God
« on: July 12, 2004, 12:36:11 PM »

What are your thoughts on the song? IT really makes me think and almost  :'( just like "Imagine"

God is a concept,
By which we measure
Our pain.
I'll say it again.
God is a concept,
By which we 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 the 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.

I don't like Imagine a lot. I love the lyrics, but I don't like the music.

I think it's a brilliant song! Have a listen to Love Letters by Ketty Lester though - you can hear where John drew his influence for God.

I think he was absolutely right when he said God is a concept by which we measure our pain and that he doesn't believe in Zimmmerman :PP[/color[

Haven't heard it, but I like the lyrics, they make you think. And I like the saying "God is a concept by which we measure our pain"

I also like that he uses my last name in the song, but that's just me lol.

That's a Floyd Cramer lick, and he played it on the Elvis version of the same song.

I love the song, just because.

GOD is a work of genius, one of John's most revealing and most important.
