Imagine... памяти Джона Леннона

Оригинальный текст:

Imagine there's no Heaven –
It's easy if you try:
No hell below us
Above us only sky…
Imagine all the people
Livin’ 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
Livin’ life in peace!.. (You-oh, oh-oh-oh)
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-oh, oh-oh-oh)
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!

Переделка песни:

Imagine just for the moment:
Summer wind’s fresh and clear,
And there’s no burnin’ forests
In the Earth, no more fears…
Imagine high deep-blue sky
Touchin’ all you mind!..

Imagine Lennon’s alive -
He’d risen up from the dead,
With embarrassed nice smile
Like our close faithful friend
He’s askin’ us: “How are you?
What Paul and George used to do?” (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
We should answer: “George’s out,
Plays guitar in Paradise;
Paul is missin’ you now,
Without you he’s not so wise!”…

Get the huge bunch of flowers,
Wipe your salty tears,
I had picked them in gardens
Of Earth lands – take and cheers!..
Imagine now the whole world
Doesn’t suffer from wild wars!.. (You-oh, oh-oh-oh)
You may think that we’re sleepin’
(And, alas, it’s really so!),
It’s so nice for human beings
To listen to a dreamer’s song!


What a pleasure to read such fine, nice and wise rhymes! Lennon is always with us! He is really alive!
Thank you, Bob, so much!

I'm very glad, Helga, if you really like this
verse!:))) By the way, as to me, this Lennon's song
is one of his greatest creature because of the melody, not
because of the words... And what d'you think about this
my private opinion?:))))
Many thanks for your attention and
my best wishes to you, Helga!:))))

You are quite right, Bob! The words of almost all his songs are really primitive! He didn't hide such a fact from the people, though he loved them and they loved him too!
Your friend Olga.

Well, and I also believe, that Paul McCartny
as a genious composer had lost a serious piece of his
talent without Lennon's partnership...

Right you are... It's a pity!

Our musical tastes and opinions about creature
very often coincide, as I see...:))))
It's nice!:)))

Because I like The Beatles very much! It's my favourite group! Don't you mind to speak Russian?
It's difficult for me to print in English.

А как Вам "титаны хард-рока" "Uriah Heep", "Deep purple"
или, к примеру, "монстр психоделии" "Pink Floyd"?:))))) - Все они
начинали в эпоху "The Beatles"?:)))))

Мне больше по душе их предшественник Элвис Пресли! Ведь музыка должна за сердце брать, а не просто нравиться. Согласны?

Эдель Вайс   12.10.2010 22:54   Заявить о нарушении
А хард-рок, на мой взгляд, и не музыка вовсе!

Ну это Вы зря, хоть там ритм и преобладает!:))))
Вот рэп - это не музыка, а... "кислота", ИМХО!:))))
Элвис был хорош, нет слов...
