"Move on Fast" is a song by Yoko Ono, originally released in 1972 on the album Approximately Infinite Universe, and on the B-side to the single "Now or Never".[1] The song was later included on Ono's compilation album Onobox.[2]

Composition[edit]

In contrast to the folksy Dylan-esque single "Now or Never" song that the song was originally released as a B-side to, "Move on Fast" is described by Yoko Ono as an "offbeat pop/rock sound", which also draws from bop, big band swing, and "razor-sharp feminist rock."[3] Ben Urich and Ken Bielen described the song as "a straight-ahead rocker that hits the ground running and never lets up."[4] They also praise John Lennon's guitar playing.[4] John Lennon biographer Jon Wiener claimed that the song has a "furious rock beat."[5] He described Ono's vocal as employing "a nervous, blank voice that qualifies as proto-New Wave."[5]

Chart performance[edit]

The song became Yoko Ono's sixth consecutive number-one hit on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart and her eighth number-one hit overall.[6][7]
