The Lyrics

Imagine there's no Beatles
It's easy if you try
No help or Hey Jude
no lucy in the sky
Imagine all the people
Listening to the stones...

Imagine there's no Ringo
It isn't hard to do
No dumb McCartney pop songs
And Wings are history too
Imagine all the people
Listening to Manfred Mann...

You'd not know Yoko Ono
(which means 'one egg' in a pun)
Imagine no George Harrison
And the world will live as one

Imagine no John Lennon
Protesting Vietnam
No ugly naked album
A brotherhood of man
Imagine Julian Lennon
Working in the real world...

You may say "I'm a Bread fan"
and you're not the only one
The radio plays Zepplin
And the world will be as one

Very well written and original. Like how you used a John Lennon song on the Beatles too.

I know it should be 70s but the decade designation has been removed; however, the decade is still visible only in the U.R.L.

Boy, you decade police are a tough lot.

I didn't comment up there; in fact, we ain't gonna complain anymore. I did read the thread on the Message board about removal of decade designations on paordies, and I'm fine with that. I couldn't reply, however, since I don't have an account. Also, we're sorry if our comments were ever annoying; we didn't intend for them to be construed as annoying. And I bet the other people who criticized the decade errors (..., TVOD, etc.) didn't mean to be annoying either. Anyway, this is our last comment.

By the way, Lennon would be 63 today if he were still alive.

This was great! I liked the Ringo line too, but the Julian line was better.

If there were no Beatles, we'd all be mourning Bob Dylan every December 8. I mean, really, if there were no Beatles, it would be the Stones and Zeppelin who would have had to get real jobs. Imagine: Mick as a headmaster busted for fooling around with his students. Keith a lawyer for Britain's top tobacco company. Jimmy Page wondering why nobody comes into his occult bookstore. Ozzy Osbourne playing Onslow in "Keeping Up Appearances" while Sharon directs. Angus Young wondering why nobody ever caught on to his Chuck Berry in short pants act. Kurt Cobain dead. (Well, that was coming anyway.) Alecia Moore dyeing her hair pink so people will stop calling her "the new Joan Baez." Jennifer Lopez can still act, but what will Madonna and Britney Spears do? Nobody would care. Hmmmm, maybe there would be some benefits.

Hey, I like the Beatles! The pacing was very close, though. - October 10, 2003 - Report this comment
I can't imagine that - it's too horrible. Good job.

I thought that was really good, Laurence, specially loved "You'd not know Yoko Ono (which means 'one egg' in a pun)"!
Meriadoc - October 13, 2003 - Report this comment
The 'no dumb McCartney pop songs' was my favorite!
