As much as I liked and respected Lennon, all I can think of when I hear this song now is the interminable ending of "The Trial of Billy Jack", one of the most wretchedly ridiculous movies I ever had to sit through, with everyone in the cast singing this song with tears streaming down their faces, and I have to turn the radio channel...very, very quickly. Sorry, John...I agree with the sentiments expressed, but I just can't get that horrid image out of my mind...

It was effective for crowd singing but otherwise made your buns tired.

I'm kind of in the middle here. I don't regard it as an abomination, but it's nowhere near as good as his other 1969 single: the powerful "Cold Turkey," which was, in strictly Beatles and solo Beatles sales terms, something of a flop at the time.

Another of the best ever. I was playing this practically nonstop in March/April 2003.

Eschew Obfuscation, I am sitting here clapping and saying, "Amen to that!" He seemed like a pretty good guy, but, he was definitely an idealist. This song was misplaced!

Sometimes, a brilliant artist (like Lennon) lowers his lyrical standards, so as to be more universally understood by the rabble. The Plastic Ono Band, even with the help of Yoko's amazingly sweet tone and stunning range, couldn't quite pull this one off. It always struck me as strange that the peacenik zealots who sang these songs, sang them to (what looked to me like) the good guys. I always wanted to say, "we gave peace a chance. That's why there are two Koreas, two Vietnams, two (at the time) Germany's. Go sing your song to the Communists. Or to the Islamofascists. "

Nice sentiment, but its a pretty crappy song. And I know who wrote and performed it, and its among his lowest points.

John Lennon wrote the song, but it was actually made popular with the anti-war movement during the huge march on Washington when Pete Seeger and some other musicians were trying to get a participatory song going of which thousands could effectively participate. This one worked, and the effect on everyone within ear-shot was awe-inspiring. No way the pols couldn't hear it.
