What song will thousands of people around the world hear tomorrow, as they watch the ball drop in Times Square, NYC? Probably, John Lennon’s “Imagine”.
Imagine by John Lennon is the Peace Song of the day for 12/30/2011. And, also, for that moment when hundreds of thousands of people around the world sing it together while envisioning a peaceful, New Year.
The song “Imagine” has also resonated with folks from the Occupy Wall Street movement. “Imagine” was one of the tunes sung by the small group of stalwarts who gathered at Liberty Square/Zuccotti Park for Christmas. [See story at DNA Info: here]

Excerpt from lyrics:
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, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one…
