This is about "de" vs. "par" in the sentence

Just wondering - in the sentence, "vous chantez 'imagine' de John Lennon," I learned in Rosetta Stonte that authorship of a book, song, etc. was 'par', not 'de.' Is that corrrect?

Hi Joanne,

 I would say 'de' for authorship ...

e.g

Les 100 plus belles chansons de Charles Aznavour ...

'Ne me quitte pas' - Chanson de Jacques Brel,  ( paroles et musique de Jacques Brel)  interprétée par Maria  Bellaventure.

Hope this helps!
