Other than Lennon's Imagine and The Beatles I'll Get You (I've imagined I'm in love with you / Many, many many times before), are there any other of their songs, Beatles or post-Beatles, that have the word "imagine" or one of its variants in it?

EDIT: side thought. Or are there songs that tell us to imagine but use a different word like John telling us in Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds to *picture* ourselves on a boat in a river?

ASJ's thought of the day:

 

Wouldn't a quick money-spin be to rerelease/remake that 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand' film about a group of teens trying to see the lads on their first U.S visit? All the press and hubbub about the 50th anniversary would be sure to rake in a couple of million at least and I am more then willing to be in a remake of that film, hell I would work for free just to be in a Beatles-related film a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

^^I would even do that scene, complete with shifting a bass a-hard-days-night-george-10

^ Ha I love that scene. I love the whole movie even if its a bit campy.

I wonder how well a new Beatley movie would do. Most of the recent ones have done kind of "eh" in theaters.

This is quite something, makes you realise how incredibly small we are.

^^^ You have to do them, the Irish education system is a b*tch in that they want the most pressure to put on you unlike the English exams (at least) that are more student friendly. I shall now try and explain the education system.
In Ireland when you're 15-16 you sit an exam called The Junior Cert you do about 10-12 subjects ranging from Higher Level to Foundation Level and they all take place in June. These exams count for f**k all unless you're leaving school early, which few do because of the current economic situation.
When you're 17/18 you do an exam called The Leaving Cert. You do 6-9 subjects ranging from HL to Foundation again. These are compiled of your 2 years of study that you did after sitting your junior cert. All exams take place in late June i.e you don't get to sit say English in November and geography in March, it doesn't work that way unfortunately. A pass grade is 40%+ and the grade system goes A1, A2, B1, B2, B3, C1...E, F, NG (no grade). An A1 is worth a 100 points. Your top 6 grades are used to calculate your points. The maximum you can get is 625 points (that's if you sit HL maths). I can get 600 points because I do 6 HL subjects and 1 Ordinary Level subject. An ordinary level A1 is worth 60 points. The course you get in college depends on how many points you get e.g Veterinary medicine-570/625 points- very hard to get. Another delightful twist is if you fail maths but you get 550 points you won't get to go to college because you have to pass maths to be accepted into most universities. Also a foreign language is compulsory for nearly all colleges as well.
Now what happens if you don't your preferred college choice? I hear you cry. Well, you have to repeat your Leaving Cert year AGAIN even if you just missed out on your course by 5 points (and now you can not sit the exam a month or 2 later again

My phone effed up so I'll finish it off:
(And no you can not sit the exam a month or 2 later you literally have to do EVERY SINGLE EXAM a year later. Sounds fun doesn't it?
God I love our education system *looks at Irish flag with pride*

Also sorry for any typos (its the phone)
