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."
