Imagine entered the Go-Set National Top 40 in December 1971, and hit no 1 in January 1972. It remained at no 1 for 6 weeks.
The best-selling single of his solo career, its lyrics encourage listeners to imagine a world at peace without the barriers of borders or the divisions of religion and nationality and to consider the possibility that the whole of humanity would live unattached to material possessions.
The Imagine concept came from Yoko Ono, who was very much into open-mindedness and using your imagination.
