She Keeps On Playing Those Mind Games

On the 25th anniversary of John Lennon's death, the best article I read was in Newsweek. I'd link it, but you have to give them a whole bunch of info to access their archives. Let's just say that the best part of it was how Yoko continues to get under McCartney's skin. With digs at his love songs, and vetoing any attempt by Paul to gain ground on Ono's control of the Lennon legacy as related to the Beatles. Let me also say for the record that I marvel at any sane critic who says that Ono has any musical talent. This bit of revisionism gone mad came to light after Lennon's death. How many of you skipped her awful songs on Double Fantasy to get to Lennon's. And as someone who doesn't think that Lennon's solo work was any greater than Paul's (even at the time of his death), just seeing Ono pop up on TV every few years to remind us who broke up the Beatles, is enough to make one queasy.
