Roxy Music - Jealous Guy



"Jealous Guy" is a song written and performed by John Lennon which first appeared on his 1971 album Imagine. It is one of the most commonly covered Lennon songs, with at least ninety-two recorded cover versions.

Following Lennon's death in 1980, Roxy Music added a cover version of the song to their set while touring in Germany, which they recorded and released in March 1981. The single was released by Polydor with "To Turn you on" as the B-side, with catalogue number "ROXY 2". The song was the only UK #1 hit for Roxy Music, topping the charts for two weeks in March 1981.[5] Its B-side, called "To Turn You On", appeared on the 1982 album "Avalon", although it was slightly remixed. [6] "Jealous Guy" featured on the compilation "Bryan Ferry & Roxy Music: The Platinum Collection".
