"John and Yoko stage a bed-in" (1979)

This was their non-violent protest against war. The media flocked to it, thinking they were going to get footage of the pair having sex, but instead all they got was the two of them sitting in bed and talking about peace. The video isn't in English, but you'll get the message.

"John and Yoko: Give Peace a Chance"

One of their collaborative records protesting against violence. "Stay in bed and grow your hair"


One of John's most influential solo works, the video features him and Yoko walking together, showing the world the deep love they have for one another. This song gained immense popularity worldwide and continues to have a profound impact on its listener's today.

"Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" (1967)

The animated video is part of the Yellow Submarine cartoon movie, and is mainly a sexy, animated bunch of females dancing provocatively in front of psychedelic backgrounds while a cartoon John Lennon sings. There are some motifs throughout the video, including a bunch of people's heads whose brains are flashing, changing drawings. The whole video is a crazy visual with constantly changing images and colors.
