*******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.

It's more listenable, I'll grant you that.
