Yoko at 80

Yoko Ono's 80th birthday has given a bunch of music critics on Twitter and Facebook a chance to express their love for all that is Yoko.
I'm not going to do it.  I respect her peace activism  but musically speaking, she was slightly better than Linda McCartney.

Revisionism is rampant when it comes to musical artists.  Some older critics will tell you that they championed her records back then, and younger ones will tell you she had some sort of influence on New Wave and experimental artists.  Anyway, the link below is a sturdy list of 10 listenable Ono songs.

But if you've never heard her before, even if you skipped over all her Double Fantasy songs, then let me warn you, she's not for everybody.
