Real Love, was written by John Lennon in 1977 for a play he was working on, entitled, The Ballad of John and Yoko. He would go on the record at least six takes, all on a handheld tape recorder in his home, each containing slightly different lyrics or instruments. He eventually abandoned the song. In 1994, at Lennon's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction in New York, Yoko provided Paul with two cassettes, containing roughly four songs. She asked him to finish the songs, and The Beatles reunited in the studio for the first time since 1970. Eventually, four singles were produced, all becoming quite popular.
