Today in Beatles history

From Gibson:
1969, John Lennon married Yoko Ono at the British Consulate Office in Gibraltar. They spent their honeymoon in Amsterdam, campaigning for peace via a week-long “bed-in”. Lennon detailed this period in The Beatles’ single, “The Ballad of John and Yoko,” which was recorded by just Lennon and Paul McCartney on April 14, 1969.

I've always been drawn to the comic exasperation that John lets out on "The Ballad of John and Yoko," best captured in the memorable line, "Christ you know it ain't easy." Enjoy:
