The Ballad of John and Yoko by The Beatles was a UK number 1 hit on Wednesday, June 11, 1969 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This isn't really a ballad - it's uptempo. John Lennon wrote the song about his marriage to Yoko and their run-ins with various international authorities. The line "Christ, you know it ain't easy" caused a great deal of controversy and got the song banned by the BBC and most US radio stations. After the wedding, John and Yoko flew to Amsterdam and invited the press to join them in their room. Some reporters thought they were being called in to witness the couple consummate their marriage (John and Yoko appeared nude on the cover of their 1968 Two Virgins album), but what they got instead was a "Bed-In," where John and Yoko protested the war from their bed - fully clothed.
