Yoko Ono destroys Lennon’s “Imagine” with her new version


Yoko Ono release a new album, ‘Warzone’, on 19 October. The singer has also released Imagine new version. You can listen below, if you dare.

According with Irishcentral.com, journalist James O’Shea writes: ” Yoko Ono, John Lennon’s wife and muse, has decided she knows better.

She released her version this week. It starts off like fingers scraping on a blackboard and gets worse from there. Never a good singer she fails to hit the high notes and makes a travesty of the song.

But why? At age 85 and with a writing credit on the original, she has tried to outdo the legendary composition. Hear it for yourself below and weep.”

Yoko Ono will be  back yet with an old noisy and screemy LP  her
Warzone, that finds her revisiting and re-imagining tracks she recorded from 1970 to 2009, with the addition of one cover song — a new take on her husband John Lennon’s iconic “Imagine.”
The album includes a new version of ‘Imagine’ – a song which Ono  received (we still don’t know the reason why ) a song-writing credit for in 2017.
We also remember, as all the qualified press recalls, that the only contribution that has given to the music was the dissolution of the Beatles, and discs containing screams and cries, which she defines art. But nobody has ever bought.

In 1971, John Lennon and Yoko Ono conceived and recorded the critically acclaimed album Imagine at their Georgian country home, Tittenhurst Park, in Berkshire, England, and in the state-of-the-art studio they built in the grounds and at the Record Plant in New York. The lyrics of its title track were inspired by Yoko Ono’s ‘event scores’ in her 1964 book Grapefruit, and she was officially co-credited as writer in June 2017.

Imagine tells the story of John & Yoko’s life, work and relationship during this intensely creative period. It transports readers to home and working environments through artfully compiled narrative film stills, Yoko’s closely guarded archive photos and artefacts, and stitched-together panoramas taken from outtake film footage that recreate the interiors in evocative detail.

Each chapter and song is introduced with text by John & Yoko compiled from published and unpublished sources and complemented by comments from Yoko today.

    Why would she even attempt this song? This woman can’t sing a note and she tore apart this beautiful song that John Lennon created….NO TALENT WHAT SO EVER……

      Anyone got some ear plugs? My dogs sing better. When John did this song, it was so beautiful I got tears in my eyes now I got tears for how horrible it sounds.

  2. What exaggerated backlash! It’s just an elderly woman singing to her lost love and believing in world peace since long time ago. That’s exactly what’s wrong in the world, let it be! We desperately need real love to people and peace. Focus on more important things.

  3. The lyrics for Imagine were literally WRITTEN by YOKO in a book of poems she wrote. Yoko literally was the writer of that song. John sang it. Smh.
