Yoko Ono has spent decades championing husband John Lennon’s memory, but true Beatles fans know John had a wife before Yoko: Cynthia Lennon. You don’t hear from that one much, but now she’s recorded a cover of the Beatles song “In My Life” on the occasion of her birthday.
She recorded the song for The Beatles Complete on Ukulele, an ongoing project to cover every Beatles song on (or at least including) a uke. Lennon’s voice is frail and quiet, befitting her age, as she sing-speaks the delicate lyrics. Download it below.
