‘(Just Like) Starting Over’/’Kiss Kiss Kiss’ was John & Yoko’s first release since their 5 year break from the music business in 1975, it was released as the lead single from their album ‘Double Fantasy‘ on 24 October 1980.
‘‘Starting Over’ and ‘Cleanup Time’ were sorta written on the run after I’d finished all the other work of writing the other ones. They just sort of came. They were like the fun after the work is finished. I was still in Bermuda.’
– John Lennon, 1980
‘We knew that song would be the first single. I love Starting Over, but when I hear it now it just chokes me up a bit because it’s how we felt at the time. We really thought that we were starting over and it didn’t work out that way.’
– Yoko Ono
