Santana Tips His Hat To John Lennon

“Imagine” is the best-selling single of John Lennon throughout his entire career. It contained a strong political message despite the sweet melody. It was Lennon’s musical gift to the world. It didn’t just top the charts, it also became one of the most loved timeless classics.

“It’s not like he thought, ‘Oh, this can be an anthem,'” Yoko Ono said, looking back at that morning 30 years later. “Imagine” was “just what John believed: that we are all one country, one world, one people. He wanted to get that idea out.” — Rolling Stone

There’s something about the song — whether the lyrics or the tune — that easily makes one feel emotional. It’s beautiful and magical in every way. Lennon has poured his heart out when he wrote it and the listener can feel that. It doesn’t matter who covered the track — the effect is the same.

In this version, Santana pays tribute to the immortal Lennon song.

+Imagine lyrics below+

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
