A flawless love song that finds Sir John figuratively on contrite, bended, knobby knee asking for forgiveness and love from Yoko. The sentiment is simple yet beautiful (I write “yet” because simplicity isn’t usually what I’m after), but unfortunately the timing of the single -- less than one month after his murder -- was surreal. On a lighter note, I used to play the B side (Yoko’s “Beautiful Boys”) in the diner all the time, constantly confusing it with “Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)” and then being disappointed when I realized it wasn’t. Must’ve happened half a dozen times. I would have made a terrible lab monkey. In mid-year, “Woman” and “(Just Like) Starting Over” were combined on a single single.
