Idol Gives (Itself a Pat On the) Back

April 25th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Here’s a clip of Blight Lewis’ lifeless rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine” on last night’s American Idol: Idol Gives Back:

“Imagine all the Beebowl”

I was inspired after Blight’s performance to write a letter to Yoko. Now, unlike most people, I actually like Yoko. Did she break up the Beatles? Perhaps, but so what if she did? That means she’s clearly more compelling than Paul McCartney, an idea that I find entirely plausible (might I add, I’m also with Heather Mills, that little gold-digging, Cockney-accented peg leg.)

And John could have never written “John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band” without Yoko and her scream-therapy style of musicianship, so I thank you, Ono, because it is my favorite weep-fest record of all time.

I’m well aware that the Yokster has a whole history of controlling John’s estate (Diana pointed this out last month), but if she’s letting Blight Lewis phone in “Imagine” on American Idol, I’d say her grip isn’t tight enough. Let’s get on with the letter, shall we?


Dear Yoko,

Imagine there’s a no-talent white guy. It’s easy if you try. He’s like hell before us. Above us, a blackened sky. Imagine all the people. Whose ears wouldn’t be bleeding today-ay-ay. You may say that 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.

Power to the People,
Jen
