|Written by||John Lennon|

Taken from 1980's Double Fantasy, which was to be John Lennon's final album, "Woman" was released as a posthumous single in 1981. While by no means his finest work, it's a pleasant enough song with a mellow bass line and some earnest lyrics about loving his missus.
Well, perhaps not that earnest. For one thing, it features the line "Oooh-oooh-oooh, well well, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo", which slightly undermines the sincerity of the song. More to the point, how can he possibly sing "I never meant to cause you sorrow or pain" after such a flagrant gear change? I don't know about Yoko, but I'm left writhing on the floor in agony every time I hear this.
It's over two decades since John Lennon's untimely death, but don't worry! You can chat to a virtual version of the late ex-Beatle, thanks to the John Lennon Artificial Intelligence Project. As the man who popularised the phrase "instant karma", I'm sure that he'd be proud to know that he would be reincarnated as a Persona-Bot™.
