The Ballad Of John And Yoko by The Beatles

Ballad of John & Yoko

“The Ballad Of John And Yoko” was written by John Lennon to chronicle his relationship and marriage to Yoko Ono. It was a unique Beatles song in that George Harrison and Ringo Starr were not present when it was recorded. Lennon and McCartney played all the instruments.

It was a rare major Beatles single not to reach number one as it peaked at number eight on the BILLBOARD Hot 100 during the summer of 1969. It had a lot more success in their home country where it became their 17th number one single.
