Double Fantasy

Highly Appreciated

Double Fantasy  is a 1980 album released by John Lennon and Yoko Ono.  It is the seventh and final studio album released by Lennon during his lifetime.  Though initially poorly received, Lennon was murdered three weeks after its release, whereupon it became a worldwide commercial success, and went on to win the 1981 Album of the Year at the 24th Annual Grammy Awards.  (More from Wikipedia)
John Lennon was beginning to write some new songs and noticed that much of the new music sounded a lot like Yoko Ono’s earlier work, particularly Rock Lobsterby the B-52’s. This realization fired his inspiration to get a new album out. The couple produced dozens of songs, enough to fill up their hit 1980 album, Double Fantasy, as well as a second planned album, Milk and Honey that was ultimately released in 1984 (following Lennon’s assassination).
