Christmas Posts 2016 part 3


So, today’s post (on the first Sunday of Advent) is dedicated to Yoko Ono’s song ‘Listen, The Snow Is Falling.’

Yoko’s version can be found on re-issues of The Wedding Album, which she made with John Lennon. While some of her recorded work can be very hard to listen to, this is really rather beautiful. Interestingly, there is no wiki page for this song.

Perhaps the best-known cover version is by Galaxie 500, who featured it in their third album This Is Our Music, released in 1990.

Another version of the song, which I hadn’t heard until recently is by Thea Gilmore, taken from her 2009 album Strange Communion.

Happy Birthday, Yoko Ono


One of the most misrepresented artists ever.

Happy 80th Birthday, Yoko -this is an excellent track that everyone should hear. Moody, sad and very beautiful video from 1981. ‘Walking On Thin Ice’ was a song she and John Lennon finished the night of his assassination:

…and this track, ‘Listen, The Snow Is Falling’ from 1968, was later covered by Galaxie 500.
