I can't stand Yoko. She sounds like a cat with it's tail stuck under a rocking chair.

I love Lennon and some of the songs on that album are personal favorites. But her having anything to do with it really puts me off the whole thing :crazy:

I'd say worse but :laughing:

I like everyone of those songs (Johns) and that's the only thing that kept me from voting for it :(

I just think that's sort of sad
