dar williams denies the link between this song and the one by the barenaked ladies. so it's just a fishy
coincidence, i suppose.
dar went to wesleyan
college, where apparently yoko ono was more well-known and admired than john lennon
. as she puts it, "...ethnomusicology
, performance art
, and experimental music
set the vibe
for the campus....Double Fantasy
was called, by some, a 'Yoko Ono
album with special guest
s.'" the song is sort of a retaliation to those who view her as a no-talent
, controlling banshee
who almost ruined john lennon's career.
