John Lennon's first single release in five years was the #1 single in
the UK for Christmas week in 1980. The song originally peaked at #8 and
fell to #21, but following Lennon's murder, it then went straight to #1
just in time for Christmas.
During January 1981, three Lennon songs made
it into the Top 5 in the UK singles charts, with Woman staying at #1 for two weeks.
