This is Lennon at his best. And what is Yoko knitting?
On this day 26th Jan in 1970, John Lennon wrote, recorded, and mixed his new single, "Instant Karma," all in one day. It ranks as one of the fastest-released songs in pop music history, recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios and arriving in stores only ten days later. The single peaked at No. 3 on the US chart and No. 5 in the UK.

Phil Spector was the producer, which is how Lennon ended up giving him the job of producing Let It Be. McCartney was furious, etc… etc… and the rest is history.

That's hilarious! They put you on hold and play "Instant Karma" – obviously the word "irony" means nothing to them!
On a similar subject: Last night my bank called me – or rather, a recorded message called me, interrupting my dinner - and after forcing me to verify my identity by punching in my year of birth, they immediately put ME on hold! Thus allowing me to listen to a 15-second loop of lite jazz-funk eight or nine times while I waited. I was very "amused". (They assured me that my call may have been monitored for quality assurance. I wonder if they heard me cursing ineffectually.)
