Tribute songs to John Lennon (try avoiding the obvious two until we get stuck!)

1. Life Is Real (Song for Lennon) (Queen)

2. The Late Great Johnny Ace (Paul Simon)….well, John Lennon among a couple of other late great Johns.

3. Roll On John (Dylan)

4. Empty Garden (Hey Hey Johnny) (Elton John)

5. Jealous Guy (Roxy Music) - the original single, released in a cream sleeve included title and band name in green, and handwritten in red beneath the title "a tribute". The only number one they had.

6. The Man Who Never Died (Elton John)

 

Also known as Egg-Rock, Egg-Roll, E-George, Eggy, Ravioli, Eggroll Eggrolli...

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

10. Happiness Is A Warm Gun by Tori Amos. Not so great musically, but does include a sort-of anti-gun recitation.

It was but for some reason the answer didnt reveal itself in the post. Maybe the forum didnt like the idea of it not being 'beatles and ...' as that was the original idea. Anyway im going to ruin it.

1. The End – The Beatles and The Doors

2. Yesterday- The Beatles and Atmosphere (never heard of Atmosphere until I looked it up on Google, but what the heck, it counts, right?)

3. What Goes On – The Beatles and The Velvet Underground

5. I'm A Loser – The Beatles and Motorhead

6. Drive My Car – The Beatles and Crosby Stills & Nash.

7. I Want You – The Beatles and Elvis Costello (ok, without the "(She's So Heavy)")

8. America - Rory Storm and The Hurricans (i am led to believe that Richard Starkey plays tambourine and according to a youtube video Brian Epstein produced and might have helped with the backing vocals along with Ritchie!!) and Simon and Garfunkel.
