Yoko Ono may be officially recognised for her contribution to arguably John Lennon’s most famous song.

The US National Publishers Association has honoured the ex-Beatle’s widow by proposing a co-writing credit for “Imagine”.

In an old interview Lennon argues the case for it, saying the lyric and the concept came from Yoko ((as expressed in her book “Grapefruit”)), and admits he originally overlooked her part when it was released in 1971.

The couple’s son Sean has said that hearing her late husband’s acknowledgement moved his mother, now 84, to tears.
