A Quiet Good Night - It Happened

"It Happened" was a song Yoko Ono wrote and recorded in 1974, while she and John Lennon were in the throes of their 18 month separation.

 "It Happened" was a song John loved. "It's a hit." "No way." "You wanna bet? I'll make it a hit," he said. I remember thinking, "Why this one?" John had found the song amongst my old tapes two weeks before the night.
 The song was released as the B-side of "Walking on Thin Ice", a dance single by Yoko that John had been working on the night of his murder. Its intro features audio of the couple walking through Central Park while being filmed for a future video project. "It's fun, innit?", asks John. Yoko agrees. "I like all this."

Stick around for that, and for the beautiful guitar work.
