Song Of The Day

Herbie Hancock featuring Pink, Seal, and India.Arie – “Imagine”

I’m betting a lot of you have had a least one moment today where you’ve been struck by that distinct feeling in the atmosphere on the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death. Thinking about the murder of this extremely influential musician and political activist makes me feel a bit bleak about humankind. When I think of John Lennon, the first thing I think about is the tune “Imagine”, and listening to that song can also make me feel sad… even though ultimately, it’s a song about hope. That’s exactly how Herbie Hancock interprets the tune on his collaborative album, The Imagine Project, that came out earlier this year:
