Dar Williams - I Won& Be Your Yoko Ono (live) Lyrics. Artist: Dar Williams and I won't be your Yoko Ono If you're not good enough for m. .

I Won’t Be Your Yoko Ono". From: ‘The Green World’ (2000). Folk singer Dar Williams uses John and Yoko as a starting point for exploring love, and particularly, love between artists. She wonders if Yoko ever considered staying solo and if she was worried that being associated with a Beatle would ruin her own art. And she gets in some wry lines, regarding Ono’s perceived duality – I could sell your songs to Nike, And for all you know, that I could save your soul. Ultimately, Yoko stands for devotion in the song.

The album has sold 11,000 copies in the US to date. All songs written by Yoko Ono. "Warzone" - 1:55. Ask the Dragon" - 4:12. New York Woman" - 2:07. Talking to the Universe" - 3:31. Turned the Corner" - 2:58.

Dar Williams has succeeded in crafting a number of great songs for her fourth album, The Green World, and the album works on a number of levels. The melodies are memorable, the arrangements are evenly balanced, and the lyrics are well written. Williams kicks things off with "Playing to the Firmament," an uplifting song full of jingly guitars and soaring vocals. The song builds with quiet intensity, with an organ offering a spare background for Williams' lyrics. The narrator of "I Won't Be Your Yoko Ono" playfully wonders if Ono ever thought it would've been better to stay solo. The narrator informs her own lover, "I won't be your Yoko Ono if you're not good enough for m. A number of excellent musicians, including guitarist/organist Steuart Smith, bassist Graham Maby, and drummer Steve Holley, join Williams.
