Funny, I think Yoko’s songs tend to better than John’s on the last two albums, with several exceptions.

I think her songs on New York City are much better than his last two albums.  However, giving Double Fantasy another look, her songs aren't too terrible with the exception of Kiss Kiss Kiss.  I do really like Hard Times Are Over.  That might be my favorite Yoko song.  However, I don't like any of her stuff on Milk And Honey .  It's not very good, especially compared to some of the exceptional John songs on there.  I always imagined the quality of her stuff was worse on M&H than the other two because John wasn't there to supervise.

She’s done great work on her own over the years. She’s written some masterpieces without John around.

I like the more “new wave” sound of Yoko’s songs on their last two albums together. But I haven’t listened in a while. Some of her songs are misses, most are hits, IMO.

I'll admit I'm actually not familiar with Yoko's work beyond the 3 John albums, and the 3 unfinished music albums.  She is on my list of discographies to binge, but I just haven't got around to it.

Somewhere on the forum I posted a bunch of YouTube links to my favorite Yoko songs. Probably in the Yoko’s music thread.
