Cee Lo Green alters Lennon’s song “Imagine”. Know what you talentless moron? Don’t be altering one of the greatest songs ever written to satisfy christians and religious types, because they can’t deal with Lennon’s words.
That made me mad. Not as an atheist, but as a fan. Changing those lyrics changed the entire meaning of that verse, and that’s not cool. And it pissed me off more when someone on HuffPo was like, “Oh shut up. John Lennon would’ve been okay with the change; he was a pretty level-headed guy.” Yeah, he was, but this is also the guy who made some off-hand comment about how The Beatles were more influential than Jesus in England; which caused Christians in America to go ballistic like several months AFTER he said it. They banned The Beatles’ music, burned their records, and sent death threats to John Lennon. Yeah, I’m sure he’d be perfectly FINE with what Cee-lo changed.
Yep, you has my vote!! — and to change his perfect songs, is a disgrace — if John Lennon would his songs ‘different’, he surely wrote them different… from the start. *peace & out!
