Yoko Ono

Vocable (All English) - - On Parle D'eux… -

More than 40 years after the song's re­lease, Yoko Ono re­ceived a song­writ­ing credit on John Len­non's clas­sic Imag­ine. The sur­prise an­nounce­ment was made at an an­nual meet­ing of the National Mu­sic Pub­lish­ers As­so­ci­a­tion in New York last month. They ex­plained the move by play­ing a clip of Len­non say­ing Imag­ine "should be cred­ited as a Len­non- Ono song". "A lot of it - the lyric and the con­cept - came from Yoko," he said. "But those days I was a bit more self­ish, a bit more ma­cho, and I sort of omit­ted to men­tion her con­tri­bu­tion."
