Today is the second week of a new challenge, from Sandi. Her blog, “Flip Flops Every Day” can be found at the above link. It sounds like fun, so here’s my try at it. If you’d like to join in, just click the above link to find out details. (hint…hint…there are no rules besides using the chosen title of the weekly song in your post. 🙂

Thanks for the fun challenge, Sandi!

Today, for Manic Monday # 2, we have the word prompt, ‘Imagine’. Sandi used the song, “Imgine”, by John Lennon, to get us started thinking about the prompt!

What would it be like, if we had no imagination. I believe it would be a dull world indeed. 🙂

First, I thought of the TV show, “The Twilight Zone”. I always liked it, because it was a bit creepy, and presented some wonderful little stories of regular people, having an especially weird day. My kind of show! I tried thinking of the opening words to the show, and of course the music that is so identifiable. I thought it started out…’Imagine, if you will…’, but then I looked it up, and here’s one of the beginning narrations (there were several versions), and I believe the creator of the show, Rod Serling, also said the words to the quote. This is from the Wikiquote page article. https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/The_Twilight_Zone_(1959_TV_series)

You are traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. Your next stop, the Twilight Zone!

The Twilight Zone (19591965) is an American television series created by Rod Serling. The original series ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959 to 1964 and remains in syndication to this day.

Next, I thought about this song, by the Turtles, because it has the word imagine in the lyrics.

“Happy Together”, by the Turtles, was released in 1967, from the album, “Happy Together”. It is on the White Whale label, and was written by Alan Gordon & Garry Bonner.

Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it’s only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together

I can’t see me lovin’ nobody but you
For all my life
When you’re with me, baby the skies’ll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

I can’t see me lovin’ nobody but you
For all my life
When you’re with me, baby the skies’ll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We’re happy together
So happy together
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together (ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba)
