Issued just in advance of John Lennon & Yoko Ono's Double Fantasy LP, "(Just Like) Starting Over" had a retro-1950s ballad/doo-wop feel with lyrics reflecting Lennon's renewed zeal for music after five years away from the record business. The song would reach Number One, but only three weeks or so after Lennon was shot to death on December 8, 1980. "All through the taping of 'Starting Over,' I was calling what I was doing 'Elvis Orbison,'" Lennon told Rolling Stone. "I'm a born-again rocker, I feel that refreshed, and I'm going right back to my roots."
