Yoko Ono’s name is just as famous as The Beatles, mainly because of her direct involvement with one of the band’s members, John Lennon. Over the years, Ono became the subject of media frenzy, cementing the prejudiced notion that she “broke up” the Fab Four. It was nothing but a mere accusation, and even the quartet themselves told the whole world that they have their problems already way before Ono swept Lennon’s feet.

While not limiting the artist’s name on the hands of the media, Yoko has always been an integral part of Lennon’s music, most especially in the later years of his career. During a chance meeting of the two inside an avant-garde exhibition in which Ono was presenting, Lennon was instantly infatuated with her. And it blossomed further when the pair created a whirlwind romance, and Lennon’s love for his newfound beau inspired him to write songs about it.

With White Album tracks like “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey” and “Happiness is a Warm Gun,” it all had subtle references to Ono. But Lennon took it one step further when he namedropped her in the epic folk-rock “The Ballad of John and Yoko,” confirming to everyone that he had finally found his soulmate and he’s happy now.

“Don’t Let Me Down” from Let It Be and “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” from Abbey Road were also written for the Japanese artist, in which Lennon details his love for his wife. Post-Beatles, Lennon practiced more artistic freedom on creating songs for the love of his life, making songs such as “I’m Losing You,” “Oh Yoko!,” and “Aisumasen,” which was Lennon’s plea on the different parts of their ever-dynamic relationship. The classic “Love” was simple yet so emotional, something that truly determined Lennon’s vulnerability towards Ono.

The final song that Lennon offered to his dear wife was entitled, “Dear Yoko,” a hauntingly beautiful track that praises Yoko’s worth inside John’s life that he’d always cherish. With the song, it almost felt as if it was Lennon’s plead to his other half that he’d lose his life without her.
