Since Yoko's birthday I've had something on my mind. Why didn't John just let Yoko continue with her existing career? Yoko already had a following for her avant-garde art, film and poetry. She could have easily morphed into a multimedia artist similar to Laurie Anderson, with a perhaps small but loyal fanbase similar to a jazz/blues artist. What was really the purpose of having her join him and Clapton at Live Peace In Toronto (1969)? No one had seen any of the Beatles live in years, so why place so much pressure on her career at such an over-amped event. Don't know why I've been stuck on this, I'm probably forgetting something...
Here is one of Anderson's initial pieces if you aren't familiar with her.

AH yes, I've seen [Laurie Anderson's O Superman]... not sure how or where. I'm still not sure to this day just what it was I witnessed...
I remember you commenting on it when I posted it in either "What are you listening to..." or "Song you're on a kick..."
You were equally perplexed, and commented something similar along the lines of you having no idea what it was you'd just heard...
This cropped up in YT recommendations, from last September... an artist called Tot Taylor (not a name I know...):
This autumn I'll be releasing some new music. [snip] The first is a love-letter - to my favourite Beatle - Yoko Ono. [snip] Here's a bit about the Yoko song: was listening to the radio one day and the DJ mentioned 'answer records'. He played Oh, Carol, Neil Sedaka's big hit about Carole King which went to #1 on the Billboard Top One Hundred (1961). Carole responded with an 'answer record', Oh, Neil, that same year. I was at school when I first heard John Lennon ’s Oh, Yoko! from Imagine - which I took to be a kind of answer to Oh, Carol. I then read that John had liked Lonnie Donegan's skiffle song Lost John (1956), while Oh Yoko! sounded a little like Oh, Carol and Lost John combined, with its skiffle beat and tender lyric. I wondered why there'd never been an answer record to that. So I’ve written one. Yoko, Oh (the official answer to Oh, Yoko!) released in two editions, on David Camp’s new The Campus label.
