This Day in History: John Lennon’s 'Imagine' Is Released
This Day in History: John Lennon’s 'Imagine' Is Released . October 11, 1971. "Imagine" was recorded by Lennon with producer Phil Spector in a single session at his country estate, Tittenhurst Park. While Lennon constructed the song, "Imagine" was heavily influenced by Yoko Ono's book of poetry, 'Grapefruit.' . Ono was recognized as co-writer of the song in 2017. The song's radical vision of idealism and peace immediately struck a chord with a world disillusioned with war. Released just over a year after the break-up of the Beatles, "Imagine" became a massive success, easily the most successful song of Lennon's solo career. It is widely considered one of the most influential songs of the 20th century
