******Yep, Yoko had something to do with three tracks on two albums, as far as I can tell.
******Two on the White Album:
******Singing backup on Bungalow Bill ( "not when he looked so fierce")
******Revolution #9 ("and then you are naked")
******Because (playing Moonlight Sonneta backwards for John)
******And of course being the only non-Fab to show up to recording sessions, including being brought in on a bed during the Abbey Road sessions.
******And last but not least, being credited by her critics and the fan base with helping break up the group.
*****I still think and always did that she had no place at all to have any input. John loved her & let her come to sessions fine. I would've had her arrested for trespassing with that stupid bed. Over self indulgent? She must have given awesome head or whatever. She controlled John & he never knew it. F*** her! I will never accept her musically. She has zero musical talent. Nuff said.
****Some of her later solo work is actually really good, at least I like it, but each to his/her own. :-)
***I'd rather listen to nails on a blackboard.
**I don't know, but maybe you are basing your opinion on stuff like "Live Peace In Toronto", don't you?
**Blueprint for a Sunrise is really cool (to name just one)
*Nope, I just don't care for Avant-garde or whatever the hell you call howling and screeching.
*That goes for the Ono 'Double Fantasy' and 'Milk and Honey' tracks, too.

Hmmn. But Ok. If you consider "DF" and "MaH" howling and screeching we certainly shouldn't have any further discussion on this topic. Personally I thing Yoko`s contributions to both of these albums are far better than let's say anything Blondie (just to give you an example) ever offered. By incident or accident I just listened to Double Fantasy and still consider it to be great in it's entirety. The reason I picked if from the shelf aftzer so mayn years was actually the latest SPLHCB release. I listened to Giles Martin's brandnew stereo version (find it terrible), then to the mono version (much better) and just wanted to compare with something more recent (yeah, I know, but it is John's last original, isn't it?). MUCH better (regarding the sound and how it is recorded or mixed) than the new Pepper. However, I certainly listened to the whole thing incl. Yoko's songs, and I again found the whole LP fantastic. But as written before: each to his/her own.
