‘Jealous Guy’ from the album Imagine was released posthumously with the B-Side ‘Going Down On Love’ from Walls and Bridges on 18th Nov 1985.

‘The lyrics explain themselves clearly: I was a very jealous, possessive guy. Toward everything. A very insecure male. A guy who wants to put his woman in a little box, lock her up, and just bring her out when he feels like playing with her. She’s not allowed to communicate with the outside world – outside of me – because it makes me feel insecure.’

– John Lennon, 1980
