What You Got by John Lennon – ****

First released: 1974

For those who think Lennon could never get down and get funky, especially in the 1970s should take a listen to this. This was also released as the b-side to "#9 Dream" and was actually released separately as a promo copy for dance release airplay! Though it was generally overlooked, it is a great tune and I’m happy that Lennon did it on "Walls and Bridges", my favorite Lennon album. A demo version appears on 1998’s "The John Lennon Anthology" and "Wonsaponatime" and 2004’s "Acoustic".
