A toast to a new beginning, an epitaph to a surprise ending. Ask not for whom the bell tolls, yadda yadda yadda. And yet, when I first heard this song, I wasn’t that impressed. After all the speculation of what Lennon might sound like in the 80s, he’d changed so very little, returning to the rock & roll roots of his youth (while David Bowie was force-feeding us the future on Scary Monsters). The real surprise here was Yoko Ono’s “Kiss Kiss Kiss,” which accepts the challenge of the new decade. Both tracks are identical to the elpee versions, in fact serving as thing 1 and thing 2 in the Double Fantasy puppet show. For more on the song, visit Songfacts.
