.............................................................................................
*Italics mark non-melodic notes.
*Green marks anguish and terror in the hearts of men because these are Yoko's signature screeches.
*Underlines mark notes that are in backing vocals or somewhat faint.


She sustains an A4 for 20 seconds in "I'm Moving On." That counts for something, I guess.

It's this kind of pretentious bullshit that makes me despise her. Also, shame on the people applauding this shit! Like it should be recognised as having any true or original artistic merit.

The music where she doesn't do that is the kind of stuff I've been trying to listen to. I've been meaning to get to Approximately Infinite Universe, so I can add it to the OP.

Take 10 deep breathes, the grudge will all be over in a moment my boy. Do not look it in the eye! Unless you are John Lennon..

She sounds absolutely ridiculous and it completely ruins one of my favourite Beatles songs, but pretty much her whole "vocal" in this is around E5. She gets up to like Bb5 or so around 1:45.
