Yoko Was a Dreamer Too

She Finally Gets Songwriter Credit for "Imagine"

June 15, 2017

It's pretty cool when your late husband's song is named Song of the Century by the National Musical Publishers Association. But the day got even better for Yoko Ono, when the group announced that she will now get co-writer credit for the song "Imagine" along with John Lennon.

Yoko's son, Sean Lennon, said on Facebook that it was the proudest day of his life. At the ceremony, they played an audio recording of Lennon saying that it should have been an Ono/Lennon song, because the idea was actually hers. According to Lennon, the idea was "right out of Grapefruit, her book. There's a whole pile of pieces about 'Imagine this' and 'Imagine that.'" He also said he had previously been too macho and selfish to give her the credit she was due.

Just goes to show you, it's never too late to make things right.
