ABC Wednesday - I is for ...



I thought a lot about this prompt as there are so many songs that I would like to post: Il Mondo,  I'll Never Find Another You,  Isa Lei, I'll Meet You Halfway and many others.

In the end I chose ....



Imagine - John Lennon

I'm actually recycling a post I did nearly a year ago.

"Imagine" was written and sung by John Lennon himself and released in 1971.

In 2004 "Rolling Stone" ranked it 3rd in it's list of "500 Greatest Songs of All Time"

The main theme of the song was Lennon's message of giving peace a chance - imagining a world that lives in peace.

I didn't quite understand or appreciate it as a child, but now it definitely features on my top 20.

I think it's a very spiritual song.

Youtube - Imagine



My Bollywood choice this week is ...

It's The Time To Disco - from the movie Kal Ho Na Ho (2003)

starring Preity Zinta, Saif Ali Khan, and Shahrukh Khan

The music is conducted by Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa. The lyrics are by Javed Akhtar. The soundtrack became one of the most successful music albums of the year.


Youtube - It's the time to disco


Check out some other entries at ABC Wednesday.

Wishing you a day when imagination runs wild or maybe it's the time to disco!  In other words, enjoy your day and have a blast.


Warm Regards

  5. Imagine is such a powerful word. I ask my kids to imagine and sometimes to shut their eyes before I start a topic.

    1. Hi Ann, it sure is. Einstein's legendary words were "Imagination is more important than knowledge".
