Notes: John & Yoko were filmed in a mock-up of their bedroom dressed in kimonos and then in bed together.
This footage was initially filmed for use as a promo video for "Just Like Starting Over"
but for some reason it wasn`t used, in fact there was no official promo for the song.
The first time any of the bedroom scene footage was seen was when 1:01 mins of it
turned up in the promo video of Yoko`s "Walking on Thin Ice" in February 1981.
1:03 mins of bedroom footage was then used in the promo video of "Borrowed Time" in 1984
and later 1:31 mins of footage turned up in the 1988 film "Imagine: John Lennon" and most recently there is 1:41 mins of
bedroom footage in the newly compiled video for the song "Love" on the DVD compilation "Lennon Legend" from 2003.
