As for Lennon’s song Julia, Geoff Lloyd to Express.co.uk: “John Lennon saw Yoko not only as an intellectual equal, but as someone who could take away the pain of the loss of his mother.”
“Speaking about the song shortly before his death, Lennon said ‘it was sort of a combination of Yoko and my mother blended into one.’ During their marriage, he would refer to Ono as ‘Mother’, and increasingly relinquished responsibilities to her.
“She assumed control of the couple’s business affairs, and even when they weren’t together during the so-called ‘Lost Weekend’ (Lennon’s notoriously hedonistic separation from Ono from mid 1973-early 1975), she even anointed an employee, 23-year-old May Pang, to be John’s companion and lover.”
Lennon’s song Mother ended up being released on the 1970 album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and was inspired by the couple’s exploration of “primal scream” therapy.
