Woman by John Lennon was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, February 7, 1981 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Lennon wrote this song as an ode to his wife Yoko Ono. He regarded it as the most Beatles-like track on his Double Fantasy album and he called it the '80s update of "Girl," which is a track on Rubber Soul. In many ways, this song is Lennon's apology to Yoko. In 1973, the couple was having problems in their marriage, so Yoko agreed to put their relationship on hold and let John sow his oats. He did, taking up with his assistant May Pang and engaging in some unruly behavior. This was released as a single in January 1981, about a month after Lennon was murdered.
