All she had to do was listen to John's albums after Imagine to know that he probably needed a musical partner not rhyming with Poco Bono.
I think Some Time in New York City is probably Lennon's most underrated album, fwiw.
It's really good.

Even the Yoko track swings — genuine Spector magic.

In a word, blech. All the Beatles' best solo stuff came out in that first burst after Abbey Road. Then the long and winding mediocre road awaits.
Ahem.

Scattered songs here and there, but largely yuck after around '71. I do very much dig this, tho.

The Wiki article on Ringo's Sentimental Journey has a section titled "Release and aftermath."

I have trouble with Woman is the Nigxxer of the World, it's a fantastic song, up there with John's best post Beatles but I can't get with the N word, it totally disgusts me.

Easily the most misguided song in the Beatles-affiliated catalog, right?

I'm going to vote for McCartney's "Freedom." Not a defence of "WitNotW," just that "Freedom" is fucking insipid.

It's weird, because I see this sentence citing a Macca song, but my brain short-circuits whenever my eyes look at the name. The only way that could happen is if McCartney released something so mind-bendingly stupid that I reject it from my own sense of reality. And what Beatle would do that?

For my money the actual Beatles song that is he hardest to listen to is "Run For Your Life," since it's a perfectly catchy song about threatening domestic abuse sung by an accused domestic abuser.

Worse, what kind of person would get a tramp stamp of the lyrics? Right, Inder?

I can't for the life of me understand how anyone, even at the time, in the Beatles camp thought that that was appropriate for a pop song. Worse, as far as I know, it didn't cause a ripple of criticism. Say that kids find you more appealing than Christ and people go apeshit; record a wifebeater jingle and it's business as usual.

That song is somewhere beyond "misguided". Yeah, that one went into the bin of unlistenable misogyny some years ago for me.

That's one of my fave Lennon songs. Love the vibe in that one.

Actually, we were co-authors:
Dirks went on to say, however, that there still hasn’t been anything made that is nearly as pioneering or essential as 1996’s Turn the Radio Off by ska band Reel Big Fish.
