Posted on Bootlegzone. 

The song really sucks but it's so cool watching John and Yoko sing it, plus it's great to see John at the beginning wonder how to spell.

This song severely depresses me, it's really tacky and clichéd and I get what they're trying to say but it's all too naff.

I also disagree with John.


I'll never wish I was English 😉

Two thoughts.

1) Never heard this song before. The lyrics do suck.

2) John and Yoko are too cute.

Stacatto signals of constant information... These are the days of miracle and wonder, and don't cry, baby, don't cry

Someone on YouTube put the song on there, without yoko-ono_01 singing on it.  It sounds much better!


If I find the link again,  will post it. BEATLES Music gives me Eargasms!  apple01

I actually really like this song.  It's one of my favorites on STINYC.

I've seen that before as well.  I originally thought it was a track from the  JL Anthology, but just now looking it up, it isn't.  The track on there is a live one most definitely with Yoko.


Doing a quick Youtube search of the song "Without Yoko" gave me 3 different fan-made versions with varying ways places of track splicing.  Here they are from worst to best.
