Yes, "N"="Nigger". Please listen before making judgements. Wish he were here today...from the Dick Cavett Show. Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it. -John Lennon "Laurel and Hardy, that's John and Yoko. And we stand a better chance under that guise because all the serious people like Martin Luther King and Kennedy and Gandhi got shot." -- John Lennon

Pop group Brotherhood of Man recorded a version in 1981, which was featured on their album 20 Love Songs. Ozzy Osbourne recorded this song on his 2005 Under Cover compilation album. In 2007, Ben Jelen's version appeared on Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur as an iTunes exclusive bonus track. "Woman" is a song written and performed by John Lennon from his 1980 album Double Fantasy. Written by Lennon, it is an ode to "his wife Yoko Ono and to all women". The track begins with Lennon whispering, "For the other half of the sky ...", a paraphrase of a Chinese proverb, once used by Mao Zedong. In an interview for Rolling Stone magazine on 5 December 1980, Lennon said that "Woman" was a "grown-up version" of the song "Girl". In 1965, Lennon's then-songwriting partner and fellow Beatle band mate, Paul McCartney, had written a different song entitled "Woman" for Peter & Gordon using a pseudonym. Thus, both Lennon and McCartney have individual credit for writing different charting songs with the same title. "Woman" was the second single released from the Double Fantasy album, and the first Lennon single issued after his death on 8 December 1980. The B-side of the single is Ono's song "Beautiful Boys". The single debuted at #3 in the UK, then moving to #2 and finally reaching #1, where it spent two weeks, knocking off the top spot his own re-released "Imagine". In the US the single spent three consecutive weeks at #2. After its first week at #2, "Woman" appeared ready to rise to number one for the week ending March 28, 1981; however, Rapture by Blondie unexpectedly leaped from #6 to #1 that week preventing Lennon from having his second chart topper from Double Fantasy. The single was also a commercial success in New Zealand where it spent five weeks at # 1.

WOMAN IS THE NIGGER OF THE WORLD (La Mujer es el Negro del Mundo) Este tema abre el álbum de estudio SOME TIME IN NEW YORK CITY. "Woman is the Nigger of the World" (frase acuñada por Yoko a finales de los 60) tenía como exponente principal la oposición al sexismo, siendo publicada como single en los Estados Unidos, con una controversia añadida y, como consecuencia, cierta censura en las emisoras de radio. La pareja tendría que dar una conferencia para explicar que la palabra "nigger" (modo despectivo de mencionar al negro esclavo) era una alegoría y no una afrenta contra los negros. Algunos medios impresos optaron por reemplazar la palabra conflictiva por su inicial, leyéndose "Woman is the 'N' of the World". CONTEXTO HISTÓRICO John y Yoko se mudaron a Nueva York en septiembre de 1971, viéndose confrontados con distintas cuestiones políticas. Viviendo al inicio en Greenwich Village, contactaron muy pronto con los activistas Jerry Rubin y Abbie Hoffman, harían actos en protesta por el arresto de John Sinclair, y se pronunciarían en contra de la prisión de Attica y del encarcelamiento de Angela Davis. En enero de 1971, el FBI abrió un expediente a Lennon, temiendo que pudiera intentar humillar al Presidente Richard Nixon, quien expresó la intención de encontrar motivos suficientes para deportar a Lennon. La pareja sería vigilada durante varios meses, llegando a documentarse cada uno de sus movimientos. Con semejante trasfondo, Lennon y Ono contratarían al grupo Elephant's Memory como respaldo en un nuevo trabajo, con la asistencia del batería de sesión Jim Keltner. La agenda, en las sesiones de grabación, vino marcada por las protestas contra las injusticias sociales que veían en los Estados Unidos. Phil Spector co-produjo el nuevo álbum de estudio junto a Lennon desde finales de 1971 hasta el 20 de marzo de 1972, fecha que coincidiría con el tercer aniversario de bodas de John y Yoko.
