Pros: autiobiographical song of John Lennon and Yoko One

Cons: Not long enough

Ballad of John and Yoko is an instant classic. Written by John Lennon but credited to the Beatles, this piece is the autobiographical song of what they were doing and how the world was treating them in 1967-1968.

Only 2 of the Beatles play on this track, John playing all guitars and bass and Paul playing the drums. It's a catchy rock number that is humorous as well as serious and depicts a day in the life.

In the song, John describes how they got "married in Gibralter near Spain"
honeymooned "down by the Sein" It's a real treat to listen to. The song itself was banned from radio play for many years because of the refrain
"Christ you know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be, the way things are going, they're gonna crucify me" Which was a foreboding of John's early death.

Excellent piece of rock history and a good song to boot.
