F ive months after John Lennon passed away, George released this tribute to his former bandmate with the help of Paul, Ringo and Linda. While John deserved a better song, this catchy little number at least didn’t tap the pathos of mourning, instead opting to remember John’s good deeds “all those years ago.” The flip side, “Writing’s on the Wall,” addresses the sense of mortality George felt following John’s death. In an interesting sidenote, George originally offered the A side to Ringo, who passed. A version of this single with “Teardrops” (which had served as Somewhere In England’s second single) as the B side was released at the end of 1981.
