“…but I’m not the only one.”

Written by

Imagine (orig. John Lennon) – Antony & The Johnsons

It’s a compelling discomfort that comes with writing alongside songs that speak for themselves, like telling a beautiful woman that she is exactly that: beautiful. She already knows. Telling her is a soft rustle in the leaves of her trees, passing by.

Covering John Lennon’s “Imagine” is something like that. Futile. And it’s not that Antony soaking his honey-heavy vocals in it isn’t comely – it is – but telling you that is pinching time that could be better spent listening.
