October 13, 2020

Some of John Lennon’s most memorable songs are being made available on the app TikTok, in honor of the singer-songwriter’s 80th birthday, which would have been celebrated on October 9, CNN reports.

The John Lennon Estate partnered with TikTok to bring Lennon’s music to the platform to put together a dedicated playlist of some of his best solo songs: “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.” (These songs were released by Lennon after The Beatles broke up in 1970.)

We’re super excited to launch my dad’s official TikTok account and cannot wait to see what his fans all over the world create using his music and his message of peace and love,” Sean Ono Lennon, the singer’s son with Yoko Ono, of his father’s music launching on TikTok in a statement.

TikTok previously partnered with the estate of the musician Prince to bring the late musician’s music to the platform.
