Video - Song by John Lennon - "Free the People"

I think this video created with Lennon's song "applied mainly to the 2011 Arab Uprising" is amazing.

Actual name of the John Lennon song is "Bring On The Lucie" (Freda Peeple).


I watched the Sci-Fi movie "Children of Men" the other night and then went surfing
because I liked the song that played during the end credits.
I really enjoyed this movie & look forward to watching it again in the future.

The screenplay is "based on P. D. James's 1992 novel of the same name".

Below is a link to all the great songs in this movie.

The following info is from Wikipedia.
Two versions of the song, both performed by John Lennon, appear in the 2006
film, Children of Men. The standard version of the song (originally released on
the Mind Games album) is heard during the course of the film, and an alternate
version of the song, originally released on the 1998 John Lennon Anthology
boxed set, is featured over the closing credits. The John Lennon Anthology
version of the song also appears on the film's soundtrack along with a cover
version by Junior Parker of "Tomorrow Never Knows," a song Lennon wrote for the
Beatles album Revolver.

Beatles Covers #3: Tomorrow Never Knows by Junior Parker
Posted by Gilligan Newton-John 
Junior Parker's version of "Tomorrow Never Knows" is an example of a Beatles cover that really brings something new to the table.  His album Love Ain't Nothin' but a Business Goin' On actually contains three Beatles covers, but this is my personal favorite. It's not better than the original, but it's so different, it's almost unfair to compare the two.  The original is a sweeping psyechedelic journey through space and time  Parker's version is a dark and somber look into the void.  A rare occasion where a Beatles cover is arguably as brilliant as the original.
It is considered one of the greatest songs of its time, with Pitchfork Media placing it at number 19 on its list of "The 200 Greatest Songs of the 1960s".
