JOHN & YOKO Giving Peace A Change In Previously Unseen Bed Footage

14 April 2021

Anti-war song GIVE PEACE A CHANGE was written by JOHN LENNON
(but credited to Lennon–McCartney) and recorded with his PLASTIC ONO
BAND
, including his wife Yoko Ono and a bunch of famous friends in
Montreal, Canada back in 1969.

Previously unseen footage has now come to the surface with John & Yoko
in the Sheraton Oceanus Hotel in the Bahamas a week before Montreal, while
on their bed-in tour, with Lennon playing a rough, at times crazy, version of
Give Peace A Chance.

Here we go…

Studio version…

Score: Topped the UK Singles Chart 40 years ago today,

John Lennon: “‘Woman’ came about because, one sunny afternoon in Bermuda,
it suddenly hit me what women do for us. Not just what my Yoko does for me, although
I was thinking in those personal terms… but any truth is universal. What dawned on me
was everything I was taking for granted. Women really are the other half of the sky, as
I whisper at the beginning of the song. It’s a ‘we’ or it ain’t anything.”
