List Rules Vote for your favorite John Lennon songs, not just singles and hits.

List of John Lennon solo career songs, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. There are separate lists of The Best Beatles Songs (as well as Best Paul McCartney Songs, Best George Harrison Songs, etc), but this list is just for the songs that Lennon wrote himself. John Lennon is widely recognized as one of the greatest songwriters of all time, and this list provides a way to see the world's answer to the question "What are the greatest John Lennon solo songs?"

All of Lennon's singles are included here, but real fans know that there are plenty of awesome songs to vote on other than the radio hits - though he certainly had plenty of those. Music videos and audio videos are included next to each track, so if you haven't heard a song, you can stream it right here on this page. Is one of your favorite John Lennon songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top.The list you're viewing is made up of many different songs, including "Imagine" and "Working Class Hero." If the order of this list bothers you, then start a revolution (har har) by clicking "Rerank List" to make your own version.
