Something[edit]

I've just seen this mentioned as how a Featured Article on a song should be, but sorry to say I think it needs some cleaning. There's plenty of sloppy language, and even some quotations without references. It's a very pleasant read, however. --kingboyk 20:08, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

I'm flattered to be listed as a source (Gordon Hodgson), hope you don;t mind if I update the links to my site to point to their current URLs.--Gordon 21:23, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

What does this mean?[edit]

I'm not clear about what's being disputed here. Is it disputed that Lennon put the song on the backburner (which, for those who lack a decent command of the English language, means that work on the song was halted)? I don't see any claim in the sentence that the song would have been worked on for Milk & Honey, unless putting something on the backburner now means the exact opposite of what it used to state.

In the Studio Quotation[edit]

In the last part of the In the Studio section, there is a large quotation indent, which is usually used for long quotes from a single source. Here it is used with several short quotes in quick succession. I'm wondering if it should still be indented. Alex 20:53, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

George Martin not interested in the project[edit]

Is there a citation for this statement?

I remember an interview with George Martin saying he hadn't been asked to produce Free as a Bird - with a hint of bitterness. Paul said during interviews at the time of release that George (Harrison) wanted Jeff Lynne, Paul conceeded that George Martin's hearing had deteriorated to the extent that Martin wasn't the right person to produce the new stuff.

Edit of "surprisingly did not use his Hofner bass"[edit]

It's not that suprising that Paul didn't use his Hofner bass. He changed the bass he used for recording in 1965; Geoff Emerick said in Complete Beatle Recording Sessions that Paperback writer was recorded using a Rickenbacker bass. The Beatles seems to have moved to Fender basses around 1967.

"Thought to have been written"???[edit]

Some editors keep restoring the first sentence to:

"'Real Love' is a song thought to have been written by John Lennon, although according to his widow Yoko Ono, it was quite well known that the song may have been bootlegged."

That sentence is poorly written. The logic of the assertion is not clear and who is asserting it isn't clear either: who thinks the song was written by Lennon and who doesn't? Rgarding the logic, bootlegging has nothing to do with authorship; the quote from Ono indicates that unauthorized people distributed unofficial versions of the song prior to when she gave the tapes to McCartney.

No evidence has been presented that there is a dispute over the authorship of the song. If any editor wants to restore the above sentence or something like it, he or she should be prepared to offer citable, reliable evidence. John Cardinal (talk) 13:40, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

John Lennon song[edit]

Shouldn't the title of the article be "Real Love (John Lennon song)"? He wrote it after the Beatles were broken up, and they just polished it up as a single two decades later. Kahlil88 (talk) 03:17, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

I think it should be changed as well. Is there any way we can vote on the name change? User:Chasesboys —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.223.11.244 (talk) 03:58, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Lyrics[edit]

An "inside" observer told me that Lennon actually received Real Love (with a different title "Alone" or something like that), in the mail from a fan, and re-worded much of it before recording it in his apartment. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Prime48 (talkcontribs) 05:35, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:John Lennon - Imagine John Lennon.jpg[edit]

The image File:John Lennon - Imagine John Lennon.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.
