Best Beatles Songs Written By John Lennon


The Top Ten

1 In My Life

One of the most beautiful songs ever written. I had it included in the music for my mother's funeral.

So many great John Lennon songs to choose from, but in my life is definitely the best. It's strikingly mature for a man in his early to mid twenties

Not in his life this song is related to everyone's life.touchy music especially piano work.I love THE Beatles.

Nicely written, good job Mr. Lennon.

2 A Day in the Life

Here is how GREAT the Beatles were. Both "In My Life" and " Day in the Life" are among the greatest rock songs ever written. Guaranteed #1 hit singles, but the band thought that releasing singles off of albums was cheating the fans, and so never released them. They could easily have had another dozen or more #1 singles to top their already record total. [another example "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"]. these days, artists like Katy Perry and Rihanna "mine" their albums for singles, and ride the wave of popularity created by a hit album.
