by Benjy Eisen, Spinner No stranger to the strange but certainly enjoying a revival on the club floor, Yoko Ono says that her recent success on the dance charts doesn’t really reflect a new direction or creative reinvention. “You should listen to songs like ‘Men, Men, Men,’ ‘O’Oh,’ ‘Will You Touch Me,’” Ono tells Spinner.

Early advocates of celebrating Mother’s Day in the United States envisioned it as a day of peace, to honor and support mothers who had lost sons and husbands to the carnage of the Civil War. In 1870 – nearly 40 years before it became an official U.S. holiday in 1914 – social justice pioneer Julia Ward Howe issued her famous Mother’s Day Proclamation, which called upon mothers of all nationalities to band together to promote the “amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace.”
Yoko Ono has had four consecutive No. 1 hits on the Dance/Club song charts, heralding what she calls the “new era of Yoko Ono.” Surprisingly, she says this success originated from something akin to rebellion against her father.
Ono was only about four years old when her father, a brilliant pianist, decided she should have formal musical schooling in her home country of Japan. From there, she learned pitch, chords, harmony, melodies both in class and through frequent concerts given before parent-filled audiences.

This banner has been created so one billion people can actually be counted standing together for peace – to see if we can make a real difference in the real world. Why one billion?

It is said that if we did this, something will change, or at least life will never be the same.
