Default Re: Your essential John song?

To me the most breath-taking composition of John's solo output has to be "Mother". How much those very simple lyrics can mean when taken in their proper context, and how much intense they are when melted to that sparse arrangement, leaving a lot of 'space' in the sound, with the hard drumming and the violent piano & bass suite... plus all that screaming at the end, desperation, desolation, all the feelings, all the traumas of childhood, all the problems that you carry on transporting through life... shouting them all out loud.

Precious stuff.

Beatles song would be "In My Life" just cause it's so beautiful.

Thanks so much for the replies. I wanted to make a list of my top ten favorite John songs right now, but I have to go listen some more in order to do that. Its hard to do!

I'm so obsessed with his music right now. I rarely used to go on the internet and now I come on here to talk to people about John Lennon. It's not bad actually.

I love Working Class Hero as a solo song, probably my favourite.As for Beatles, I think Hey Bulldog gets my vote today.

For the Beatles, I agree with you Darkhorse, In My Life is really amazing.

Solo... hmm... tough choice, but I believe I'd have to go with (Just Like) Starting Over, or else Instant Karma.

For a solo song - I think I'd have to go with "Watching the Wheels". I rarely sit still for long, but it's a good thinking song.
Favorite John/Beatles song? Wow, I don't think I have one. I mean, I like so many of them. but going with lyrics, I guess today I would say "All you need is love".
