Default Let It Be ~ Mindfulness

How come it is that this song is not more talked about? People talk heaps about the song Imagine as "the" anthem song and what not... Imagine is visionary, but it really only engages hope. That's a wonderful thing, but kind of step one on the garden stones.

Paul actually delivers what I find a much more complete philosophical anthem in Let It Be. It's about connections, reflecting, a world vision, affirmation ... and a method. That's much more broad in focus than John's anthem, isn't it?

I believe this is the first pop song dealing with the concept of mindfulness directly? Inner Light does in a round about way, but this is more direct.

Any thoughts?

I think Hari's Chick made a valid case and I could not have said it better.
