Anyway, speaking of Yoko, here's one that didn't make Double Fantasy:

Yikes, somehow I watched and listened to the end because I was fascinated by how the audience would respond. Sadly they clapped.


Give me that over virtually everything else that did make it...at least it is interesting.

Partially.  The execution was somewhat bland, but I do think it was John's best set of songs post Imagine (which in your case I know says very little).

What do you find interesting about the Yoko/Zorn piece?

(I have no axe to grind - just a genuine enquiry.)

I'm a Wire (magazine) reader...  Wink Smiley Grin

I like improv music.  I might never ever want to hear it again, but it made me smile and I like the fact it confuses and upsets as much as it entertains.  To that end it has as much power as the most catchy middle eight around...  

ps fwiw, I think Watching the Wheels is a great song.  Was that on DF?  Can't remember...

I'm not sure I entirely agree with this as I have a real soft spot for Walls & Bridges (not a popular view I know and possibly related to the age I was when I first heard it and the fact that Whatever Gets You Thru The Night was the first single I ever bought).

More to the point with DF though was that, if you had an open mind (which I did at the age of 16), some of Yoko's material was terrific. I remember flipping the single of Starting Over after having been a bit disappointed by the A side and my jaw completely dropping at the sound of Kiss Kiss Kiss. As an, at the time, lover of X Ray Spex and Lene Lovich, this was right in my wheelhouse. Every Man Has a Woman Who Loves Him may also be the best song on the album and may have been a huge hit had it been by someone more fashionable.

I was a teenager when DF came out, and I remember how odd "Just Like Starting Over" sounded when I first heard it on the radio.  It was such a throwback, both in style and production.  I liked it, as well as "Watching the Wheels," but it did not sound like anything else on mainstream rock radio at the time.
