John Lennon - Woman

Woman' came about because, one sunny afternoon in Bermuda, it suddenly hit me. I saw what women do for us. Not just what my Yoko does for me, although I was thinking in those personal terms. 

Any truth is universal. If we'd made our album in the third person and called it 'Freda and Ada', or 'Tommy' and had dressed up in clown suits with lipstick and created characters other than us, maybe a 'Ziggy Stardust', would it be more acceptable? 

It's not our style of art. Our life is our art.

Anyway, in Bermuda, what suddenly dawned on me was everything I was taking for granted. Women really are the other half of the sky, as I whisper at the beginning of the song. And it just sort of hit me like a flood, and it came out like that. 

The song reminds me of a Beatles track, but I wasn't trying to make it sound like that. I did it as I did 'Girl' many years ago. So this is the grown-up version of 'Girl.'

John Lennon, The Last Rolling Stone Interview, December 1980.

Woman - released 12 Jan 1981 (USA) 16 Jan 1981 (UK)
