Selling Out :(

Rare Lennon Recording In Ad
November 14, 2007

Yoko Ono sold John Lennon's rare home recording of "Real Love" to JC Penney for a commercial.

The spot began showing Sunday night during ABC's "Brothers & Sisters," before JC Penney could even make the announcement.

The Beatles have had their songs licensed for commercials in the past, but with the rare exception of perhaps "Revolution" years ago, they never have allowed master recordings out. The songs are always re-recorded.

Would never have happened had Eppy been in charge.
Or Neil, for that matter.
