304. “The Ballad Of John and Yoko”- The Beatles. Apple. Rock. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. B-side:” Old Brown Shoe.” A John Lennon written tune about his adventures with Yoko- I have always thought this should have been a John Lennon single- not a Beatles single. The only Beatles to play on it were John and Paul. It peaked at #8 and spent 9 weeks on the chart.  The Beatles in 1969 had 5 Hot 100 singles- all made the Top 40- with 2 #1’s in “Get Back” and “Come Together.’ Grade: A.

  1. So only John and Paul played on the song, but then they had both George and Ringo in the video. I wonder what G & R thought about that? Quentin’s Theme should be familiar as I was a big fan of Dark Shadows, but it isn’t. My memory must have tossed it…
