The Beatles legend John Lennon’s official Instagram account shared a little-known story about how “Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins” was written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

Here is the story:

“#onthisday 19 May, 1968, John invited Yoko to ‘Kenwood’, his home in Surrey. Yoko had visited previously, for lunch, but this time she and John were alone.

They worked together through the night, creating what would become the album Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins. ⁣

‘We went upstairs to my studio and I played her all the tapes that I’d made, all this far-out stuff, some comedy stuff, and some electronic music. There were very few people I could play those tapes to.

She was suitably impressed, and then she said, “Well, let’s make one ourselves,” so we made Two Virgins. It was midnight when we started, and then we made love at dawn. It was very beautiful.’ ⁣-John Lennon to Rolling Stone, 1970⁣
