Some 40 years since his unfortunate passing, the John Lennon legacy has lived on through multiple generations and in celebration of what would have been his 80th birthday (10.09), TikTok will bring some of the artist’s most iconic tracks to the service.
According to the mega-popular video and music app “Instant Karma! (We All Shine On),” “Imagine,” “Mind Games,” “Beautiful Boy,” “Woman,” “Happy Xmas (War Is Over),” “Give Peace a Chance,” “Stand By Me,” “Nobody Told Me,” “Remember,” and “Gimme Some Truth” are now available in addition to a dedicated John Lennon account, which currently boasts more than 23,000 followers.
“We are absolutely thrilled and honored to bring John Lennon’s music to a new generation, and are eager to see how the TikTok community will be inspired to create to the sounds of Lennon’s repertoire,” said Corey Sheridan, head of TikTok’s music partnerships and content operations. “Lennon’s timeless lyrics are as relevant now as when they were written.”
In honor of the former Beatles birthday, listen and watch the video for “Imagine”.
