The ballad of John and Yoko was by THE BEATLES????? I thought it was by John and Yoko....

Fionn Fri 22-Nov-02 20:21:55

Yes, strange isn't it, considering the rest of them hated her so much . But I've just checked in one of my books which said that John and Paul wrote it and only John and Paul were available to play on it, so it was really only half a Beatles song! It was released in 1969 and although Something and Let it Be came later they didn't get to no. 1
