To be honest the first time i heard the song "kiss kiss kiss" sung by Yokoyoko-ono-01 i really LOLed…generally i have a strong belief that John putting Yoko singing some songs of his albums wasn't the best idea………a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

And In The End, The Love You Take….Is Equal to the Love……You Make

I'm with you on that. Whether the songs are hers or his, she should never have a microphone in front of her. I do not dislike her as a person but wish she would limit her singing to the shower. I really like her song  "We're All Water" from Some Time in New York City because the lyrics are funny. But then at the end, she stops singing and starts…well…l'm not sure what she's doing, but I lose interest in a hurry.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Strangely when it was JohnandYoko in the early 70's they had separate albums, tho at times joint singles. It was only with Double Fantasy that the shared albums began, Milk and Honey would have been the same even if John had been alive.

 

I have a policy to not listen to Yoko, so much so i didnt by Double Fantasy Stripped until a download offer came along that allowed me to buy just the John songs for a good price.

The sounds (lets not call it music) that John and the POB managed to create backing isnt that bad but Yoko's squealing, shrieking and whetever else is in there gives me a real headache. Thankfully that stopped for Double Fantasy and a few other bits and pieces but was replaced by this very amateurish sounding whine that is really unpleasant. Its really grating on Bungalow Bill, which is just one line. To have it for 3/4 minutes makes your bones stretch in anguish.

The prime example is the One to One concert film when near the end John sings i think Hound Dog and then Give Peace A Chance and Yoko starts her yelping during them.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13a-hard-days-night-ringo-13a-hard-days-night-ringo-13a-hard-days-night-ringo-6neil-aspinallyoko-ono-01paul-mccartney

Yeah…I don't really prescribe to Yoko's brand of singing, either. It's not my cup of tea. I actually found Double Fantasy at the record store the other day for really cheap, but I didn't buy it because I knew I wouldn't listen to it without being able to skip her songs. I've read a lot of people in the internet land say they like her voice, but I just…I can't. Before I even knew who she was, I heard that yelping thing that she had going on at a museum, and I was horrified. Ouch…I don't much care for Sean's vocals either. He's a great songwriter and guitar player. I think he plays keys, and he's a passable percussionist, too…but he has a really nasally voice. If you can get over the initial grating, you get used to it, but it takes training. I guess it's odd that I like John's voice so much but not Sean's because John's voice was nasally, too. I guess it just wasn't that bad…maybe it's the difference in accents?

I could be wrong, but I believe Some Time in New York City was the first shared post-Beatles album. 

I use the qualifier "post-Beatles" in order to disregard the first albums they…oh, let's say released together.

Youre right Zig, ive deleted STINYC from memory (hey that nearly looks like stinky which it rightly does). Tho Baby Please Dont Go from the jam side isnt too bad. Ive just had flashbacks of Luck Of The Irish on the Lennon Anthology – *body shivers in horror at Yoko's vocals*.

I actually think Luck of the Irish isn't so bad on Yoko's part. Maybe I'm just forgetting because I haven't heard it in awhile, but I seem to recall that I reluctantly liked the song.

I'm not so keen on Yoko's vocals either, but I do enjoy Kiss Kiss Kiss as well as Give Me Something off Double Fantasy as I find them both quite funny, especially the bird noises she makes in the beginning of the latter. I also think her voice is quite fitting for Happy X-Mas (War Is Over) and Sunday Bloody Sunday.

Well…Hearing that song about Kyoko, Mummy's only looking for her hand in the snow, must be the most unpleasant music experience I have had. But other than that… I'm fine with Yoko a-hard-days-night-ringo-7Her music isn't the kind I personally go for, but it's freat for whatthefuckthisis's. And I actually like walking on thin ice. I do think she is able to sing beautifully if she wants to, but it's just not her kind of thing to do so.

I personally love Kiss,Kiss,Kiss.It's my favorite Yoko song ever and I think it's really catchy.I do think the part at the end is unnecessary,the first few times of listening to it was hard to get through and I laughed but now I can get through the song just fine.I sort of think her voice is pretty but only in some songs.

I recently listened to Death of Samantha, and I thought it was okay. I like that "I'm a cool chick, baby," part. On the whole, though, I don't think I could ever make it through an entire Yoko album. It just isn't my style, though I know some people love it and see it as the ultimate "art."

Yeah Yoko has got a huge underground fanbase that cant get enough of her music and there are many famous artists who have remixed her work. Everyone is different and thats whats so good about music.
