    No...it`s not an Oxymoron...you moron. An oxymoron is when you use two words together that are opposites. Like Jumbo Shrimp or Military Intelligence or even Genius Fancylad.

    No, not an oxymoron, just redundant.

    The oxymoron is between "Yoko Ono" and "singing", not "Yoko Ono singing" and "horribly". The former is correctly described as oxymoronic, the latter is just redundant.

    This actually was a performance art piece of just her singing. The national anthem was just added over top later. The best part is this guy using it as an example why the Satan was in The Beatles.

    I`ve always questioned why we chose "The Star Spangled Banner" as our anthem, I gotta admit it really is melodically awkward, not to mention that it has a ton of other verses that we never get around to because it`s so long.

    "America the Beautiful" is much more sonically pleasing, and more poetic too.

    She was a good artist, not a good singer. And she was not a gold digger...you a$$ clown. She was an established artist before she met John. She didn`t even know who he was at first. If she was really a gold digger don`t you think she would be selling out John`s music. She is very protective of him music and has not remarried or dated since his death. I don;t care for her singing, but to talk poo about her just because everyone else does...I find that stupid.

    She`s not singing the star spangled banner. She`s just yelling with no music. It was part of an art installation at MoMA. The music is an over dub.

    I liked the Laurie Anderson stuff but that to me still stayed within the stylized structure of contemporary music. The Ono piece was the equivalent of bird song for humans.

    Like onion powder, garlic salt, and raisinets on your popcorn: It`s so bad it`s good.

    Still sounds better than any rendition Steven Tyler has ever done. Also she is a performance artist. Perhaps that was just her rendition of his rendition.
