Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.

"Imagine / Mind Games / Instant Karma / Give Peace A Chance" from Lennon (Original Broadway Cast)


Ulterior Motives: Today is your birthday, John Lennon. Let's talk about Lennon the Broadway show, though lasting a short time on Broadway, boasted truly outstanding orchestrations of Lennon's song catalog by Lifetime Achievement Tony Award winner Harold Wheeler and arranger Lon Hoyt. Plus - that cast: Terrence Mann, Michael Potts, Mandy Gonzalez, Will Chase, Marcy Harriell, Chad Kimball, Julie Danao, Chuck Cooper, Julia Murney.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: There are two absolutely ultimate moments of this clip without question. We have watched each of these sections... more than three times haha. The harmonies from 1:40 - 1:52 on the word "love." Mandy Gonzalez and Julia Murney's amazing voices shine through loud and clear amidst the cast's beyond gorgeous harmonies. Second ultimate moment - Mr. Terrence Mann. At 2:44 - 2:51, he sings the intro to "Give Peace a Chance" directly to camera - it's phenomenal.
