(Just Like) Starting Over

You should group together (Just Like) Starting Over - no. 2 with "StartingOver" (incorrect title) no. 17, although I don't think it would get to no. 1 anyway. Thanks

As you point out the title "Starting Over" is incorrect, those entries have been fixed, thanks for the suggestion

The song's title was "Happy Xmas (War is Over)", it reached number 2 in Dec 1972. It was the 5th most suucessful solo song by John Lennon.
