Ono takes her political message to the dance floor
Saturday, October 30, 2004

By RICHARD L. ELDREDGE
COX NEWS SERVICE

At 71, avant-garde artist and musician Yoko Ono has found a new canvas for her politically charged work -- the dance floor.

Just before 11 states get set to vote on proposed constitutional amendments banning gay marriage, Ono has released 12 dance club mixes of "Everyman Everywoman."

The original track -- "Every Man Has a Woman Who Loves Him" -- was included on "Double Fantasy," the final album Ono made with husband John Lennon before his 1980 assassination. The song was intended as an uplifting, reassuring statement about finding one's soul mate. Ono has now advanced the lyrics to include same-sex relationships, adding the words: "Every man has a man who loves him" and "Every woman has a woman who loves her."

The new version is No. 2 on the Billboard dance chart.

Remix artists Basement Jaxx, Dave Aude, Ralphi Rosario, DJ Vibe and the Passengerz have all recorded interpretations for the Mind Train Records release.

Ono said this week that, even while she's endured hatred and bigotry as a Beatle-marrying Japanese American woman, radical visual artist and musician, the current resistance to the notion of legalized same-sex unions surprises even her.

"It was a real educational experience for me," Ono said from Los Angeles. "After I recorded 'Everyman,' I had even close friends say to me, 'Did you really have to do that?' They were very uncomfortable that I was making this statement. I was hearing, 'Well, I'm a Catholic' or whatever. The truth is, I'm upset that gays can't get married. It's unfair. Plus, it's an insult to women. Marriage is only for procreation? Really? What about the woman who wants to get married and not have kids? Should they not get married either?"

Early on, Ono said Lennon understood the universality of the track. Just before he died, Lennon gender-bent the song's lyrics by recording his own cover of "Every Man Has a Woman."

"As a feminist, John understood that the song was about equality," said Ono. "I wanted to show that women are one-half of the equation. We're not just the childbearers or whatever. I think that's what John liked about it."

Twenty-four years ago, Ono said she was concerned about racism and sexism at the time she wrote "Every Man" on an antique piano in the couple's "white room" inside their home at the Dakota in New York City. She regrets overlooking same-sex relationships.

"I have a lot of gay friends and now it's like, 'Why didn't I think of this before?' " Ono said.

Still, the singer said she didn't release "Everyman Everywoman" solely so it could garner airplay in gay and lesbian nightclubs. With a No. 2 single on her hands, Ono's statement has transcended the gay community.

"You don't get to No. 2 by just being played in gay clubs," said ED's Records owner Jason Jones. His Atlanta shop, which caters to club DJs, had one copy of "Everyman" left in stock Thursday. "This is being played everywhere. It's a very mainstream record."

"That's what I wanted," Ono said. "I'm really singing this for the heterosexual community. The gays already know what I'm singing about. I'm trying to educate the straights. Until we realize that we're all one people, entitled to the same things, we're not going to move forward." And even if those 11 states vote Tuesday to ban gay marriage? Ono thinks change is inevitable.

"One day it will happen anyway," she said.

"Heterosexuals aren't getting married at the rate they used to," she said with a laugh. "If the churches want to stay in business, they'll have to begin marrying gay people!"

Re: Happy Birthday Steve A


thanks very much and thanks to LL for remembering.

just got back from Denver where we spent the weekend showing my son around some of the colleges around the area and we took in the Bronco/Falcon game. Had cheap seats in the nosebleed section. Lousy game.

my sister gave me Ringo's "Postcards". The economy version. Nice book. Cool commentary from Ringo.
