John met Yoko in Nov 09, 1966 and the first song the guys recorded after that date was Strawberry Fields Forever, but we all know that was composed (and written) in Almeria, Spain. The next one was `In The Life Of... (working title of `A Day In The Life') (takes 1-4) and it was recorded in Jan 19, 1967. Was this one the first that John wrote after he met Yoko?. He said that A Day In The life was one he'd got but he couldn't finish, so...

At least Linda wasn't pretentious like Yoko. If Yoko thinks she is talented, that woman is SORELY mistaken!
Besides, Paul wrote more love songs than John so it's safe to say Linda inspired more of them.
I recommend Linda's little solo album, Wide Prarie. It's not a masterpiece or anything but it's a fun little record.

Well, Patti inspired Layla and some say Something too (George denied this). I this was true she was the best musical wife of history.

With An Apple Beatle on my mind, one curiosity (sorry, GreenApple for the off topic thing

I tried to listen to Double Fantasy the past few days. But I just cannot stand Yoko's voice. 'You're a beautiful boy, With all your little toys'. It sends shivers down my spine. This lady is just not talented.

I agree, except for a few examples - War Is Over, Attica State. But, if Yoko had given her songs to John to sing, it might have been quite pleasing!

The thing is she didn't. She probably thinks she's good enough to sing it herself.

God, this thread nearly nullifies the whole site. Linda was marginally talented at best, but she never tried to get in the way, usurp any attention that was being paid to Paul, stayed in the background and was as unpretentious as could be (and the crew never unplugged her piano like they did with Yoko at the One To One Concert). Yoko thought everything she did was art and was on the same level as John, always was in the way, couldn't play squat, and couldn't carry a note if it had handles. What the f*** people? It's also unlikely that if Paul had gotten shot, that Linda would have had his blood stained suit, bass, glasses--anything on a f***ing album cover. It's amazing what sh*t people will buy into, and, even though it's just my opinion, some of the people defending the Ocean Child from Hell on this post is incredible to me. I thought you had more of a clue than that.

Neither one.  I choose Agnetha and Frida of ABBA.

I actually like a few of her songs - Remember Love, Sisters O Sisters, Born In A Prison, Attica State, Kiss Kiss Kiss, Walking On Thin Ice and others that I'm too drunk to remember right now! ;D


"In 2003, riding on the success of several Ono club remixes including "Open Your Box" and "Kiss Kiss Kiss", "Walking On Thin Ice" was released as a maxi-single with remixes by distinguished dance artists including the Pet Shop Boys, Danny Tenaglia and Felix Da Housecat. It met incredible success, spending many weeks on the U.S. dance charts before reaching No. 1, beating Madonna and Justin Timberlake. Ono is probably the first 70-year-old to have a No. 1 hit anywhere in the world. It is worth noting that on the extended 12" mix of the original track (available as the B-side to "Cape Clear"), Lennon can be heard remarking "I think we've just got your first No. 1, Yoko."

-----------------------------------------
"Walking On Thin Ice" is a New Wave/dance song by Yoko Ono, released in 1981. It was recorded on December 8, 1980 in collaboration with her husband John Lennon. Later that night when the couple returned to The Dakota (their home in New York City), Lennon was murdered by deranged fan Mark David Chapman. Lennon's guitarwork on the track was thus his final creative act. Less than a month later, "Walking on Thin Ice" was released as a single and became Ono's first chart success, peaking at No. 58 and gaining major underground airplay. The lyrics talk of the unpredictability of life and death -- of "throwing the dice in the air" -- and reach the conclusion, "when our hearts return to ashes, it will be just a story....". With the world in shock, a new poignancy was added to the already haunting yet highly danceable track.

"It Happened" was selected as the B-side to the 1981 single - a slower, mellow track about acceptance from Ono's vaults that was originally recorded for A Story and had already seen limited release in Japan as the B-side to "Yume O Moto". Much like the A-side, the lyrics have a new haunting quality given Lennon's assassination: "It happened at a time of my life/When I least expected... And I know there's no return, no way". In the essay on the back of the single, Ono talks about how Lennon picked out this track from her old tapes and marked it as a hit. She said "No way!" to which he responded "I'll make it a hit". He was killed hours later.
