The Daily Five – John Lennon Songs

8 Dec

On the anniversary of John Lennon’s death, I thought the best use of this space would be a listing of my favorite John Lennon songs. Not just his solo work, but the songs he wrote as part of The Beatles. A list like this is highly subjective, but these are my picks. Feel free to post your own list in comments.

5. Norwegian Wood – My favorite Lennon/McCartney song

4. Strawberry Fields Forever

3. Happiness Is A Warm Gun

2. Working Class Hero

1. Imagine

    Imagine a world living in peace… John did and I tried to channel his world-embracing and loving energy this week with a tribute portrait inspired by his music and his passion for changing the world. You can see this new work of art in memoriam on my artist’s blog at

    Any Lennon mix has to include Mother, The Ballad of John and Yoko, and Instant Karma. And yes, of course Help! and You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away.
