I guess you haven't spent a lot of time on the beach in the midday sun. That sand burns...

Right. Unlike the pavement on Abbey Road.

It would make more sense that Sir Paul was worried about pieces of shells or maybe earlier he was climbing on rocks that were covered with barnacles.

But let's not make excuses for the "artist".

He aint barefoot no more. I put flip flops on him. And if you press the button he plays an instrumental, Hawaiian guitar version of Margaritaville.

Yoko Ono added to Imagine writing credits

Image

More than 40 years after the song's release, Yoko Ono is receiving a songwriting credit on John Lennon's classic Imagine.

The surprise announcement was made at an annual meeting of the National Music Publishers Association in New York on Wednesday.

They explained the move by playing a clip of Lennon saying Imagine "should be credited as a Lennon-Ono song".

"A lot of it - the lyric and the concept - came from Yoko," he said.

"But those days I was a bit more selfish, a bit more macho, and I sort of omitted to mention her contribution.

"But it was right out of Grapefruit, her book. There's a whole pile of pieces about 'Imagine this' and 'Imagine that.'"

Imagine no possessions

How hard is that? Yoko must have been insincere.

I'd be lost without my toothbrush.

It's easy to imagine it, though. I'd be eating more mint. Is food a possession? Can I have my cake and eat it, too? oh wait. Can't make a cake without a cake pan.

Well, I can sorta imagine being stranded on a desert island... and the ensuing insanity. But, I think I'd need experience to 100% imagine it.... and be correct.

Btw, I'm sitting in a plane that has been taxiing for nearly an hour. I can barely imagine not being on this plane any more. Mostly just freaking that my connecting flight is supposed to take off in 8 minutes. As Ween would say, it's gonna be a long night.

It's easy if you try. Think Gilligan. Think Tom Hanks in Cast Away. Think Lord of the Flies. Think Swiss Family Robinson.

If you're into mint and cake, you might like to live on a dessert island. 8)

Yoko and Marie Antoinette would have made a great pair. Imagine a Bed-In with those two. (It's easy if you try)

Long, Long, Long
Is there a better George Harrison song? Great ending, too. One of the best endings on a Beatles song. And that's saying something.

Hmm, no Ringo credit on the Hard Day's Night. He came up with the phrase.

Add to that the Lennon song originally titled "The Void", until John appropriated one of Ringo's malapropisms and renamed it "Tomorrow Never Knows".

If we are gonna start rewriting song credits how about Eleanor Rigby? Paul wrote the music which Martin scored and Paul, John, George, and a few others in the room wrote the lyrics. George in fact came up with the "Ahhh look at all the lonely people" part as an example.

Song writing a is a funny business.
