“Gimme Some Truth” – John Lennon

From the 1971 album “Imagine,” here’s John Lennon’s “Gimme Some Truth,” a residual track from Lennon’s Phil Spector / primal scream era.  A wonderfully angry, self-righteous song about the quest for truth and authenticity.  Yes, you can blast 10 million holes in this by a mere fart, but it’s still a great song.

I would also present the equally awesome cover by Billy Idol’s punk band Generation X, but allegedly those clips have been blocked by YouTube due to “copyright” reasons.   Funny, I can show you John Lennon, but not the band that Billy Idol was involved with before he became famous.  So it goes, so it goes…
