we all shine on

just because i loved it at the gig last night, here's the original of instant karma. the story behind this is that john wrote and recorded it over a weekend, including making the film clip, then had it sent off to be mastered and pressed and the 7" single was in the shops by the next weekend. this was, of course, john lennon at the end of the 60s - a guaranteed money earner - so the label would jump through any hoops for catchy new product. impressively, it has stood the test of time very well.
