there is a better John solo version (IMO) of Real Love on his "Acousitc" album, released last year. Just JL on acoustic guitar. Really really good and has an alternative middle 8/bridge and a few different lyrics. check it out!


Oh yes - the other Yoko wallet-padding collection, lol. I actually like the piano version better. My favortie things on the John Lennon Anthology are the parodies. Hysterical. Especially the Dylan one where he's reading the newspaper and the "Yesterday" parody.


the Dylan parodies are hillarious! John was such a funny guy. Serve Yourself also always makes me smile
ONly if your not a fan of Dylan(a sizeable fan)...

Family Guy had this George Harrison bit, where the(family guy) was guarding George Harrison's mansion, but he was watching TV, and we see the guy who stabbed harrison climbing over the wall, and all hell breaking loose in the background(we hear it).

That joke was in BAD taste, and i will never laugh at that incident being made light of.

I'm a fan of Dylan, and I still find the parodies funny. Just like I find the Rutles movie hillarious.

But that Famly Guy joke does sound un-funny and bad taste

I've seen Dylan 9 times - more than any other artist I've seen. So I think I would count myself as a sizeable fan. I still think Lennon's parodies are hysterical. In the liner notes to Biograph, Dylan talked about how much he missed Lennon - even after Lennon tore into him in the infamous Rolling Stone interview. I think one of the keys to happiness in life is not taking yourself so seriously...
And in the end...

Simon and garfunkel did a dylan parody, and it was amusing...(but, not hilarious)..

can you imagine Simon and Garfunkel to be as funny and witty as John?

Art Garfunkel looks like he's never cracked a joke in his life :D

Art Garfunkel is an odd duck, no question. (Granted, we all are) His facial expressions and radom comments on stage just crack me up.

Paul's contribution to Real Love is virtually un-noticable.

Weren't the Beatles all supposed to contribue something(substantial) to the record?
Like on Dear Prudence...(probably their best arguably with all contributing)

Was Paul afraid to contribute something meaningful or something?

p.s: I'm starting to think now this 2-track reunion should never have been done. I mean if you're gonna do something, do it properly...

At least George did his part brilliantly(i think he was seemingly the only substantial contributor)

mabye...
I dont like the low-quality of Johns parts...

SHould've just re-recorded some of the tracks from Double Fantasy/Milk And Honey....
Then they could've added "Somedays" by McCartney, a track from George, a track from Ringo, then we'd have a "mini-beatle" album...
Not too hard?....

But, no they had to take the hard way, and put music to a crappy low-quality tape recordings...
