"Desdemona" is a song by the English cult band John's Children. It was released in 1967 and failed to chart in Britain, possibly due to the fact it was banned by the BBC for the controversial lyric (lift up your skirt and fly). However, the song was a minor hit in Europe.
The song was composed by Marc Bolan, who at the time was a member of John's Children. It was later covered by Radio Stars (featuring former John's Children singer Andy Ellison) (1978), Marsha Hunt (1969) and The Jam were known to have played the song live.
