Best Post Break-up Songs from Beatles Members

The best songs from John, Paul, Ringo, and George after the break-up.

The Top Ten

1 Imagine - John Lennon Imagine - John Lennon

John Lennon was a genius, plain and simple. His messages of peace in songs such as All You Need Is Love, Give Peace A Chance and Imagine have changed many peoples lives including mine. Long live the king

The most amazing anthem to humanity. Full of hope and genius for what would solve the worlds problems. Love you, John Lennon!

John Lennon's Imagine will live down as the most influencing song out there. - Exodus666

Life altering, brilliant and beyond talented man. What a phenomenon, never to be seen again. so grateful that we had him for as long as we did! - Pfeifferpfan

2 My Sweet Lord - George Harrison My Sweet Lord - George Harrison

This highly spiritual song has the most catches verse. It just sounds like the definition of the search for enlightenment. It's such a good track, beating out Wah Wah, Too Many People, And God.

Imagine is okay this song, Maybe I'm Amazed, and Band on the Run are the truly remarkable songs.

Imagine is great but this song is REMARKABLE.

3 Ebony and Ivory - Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder Ebony and Ivory - Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder
4 Say Say Say - Paul McCartney & Michael Jackson
5 (Just Like) Starting Over - John Lennon
6 Silly Love Songs - Paul McCartney
7 My Love - Paul McCartney
8 All Those Years Ago - George Harrison
9 Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney

I think that this was the greatest song Paul McCartney ever wrote. Seriously! It's so brilliant! Very simple (Compared to songs like "A day in the life" and "Helter skelter", yet it still proves how sometimes, less is more.

This is one of the greatest love songs of all time. This is Paul at his romanticest.

10 Coming Up - Paul McCartney

Since the breakup 46 years ago, McCartney has been little more than lightweight pop.

The Newcomers

? God - John Lennon

The Contenders

11 Band on the Run - Paul McCartney

I love this song! - TheCuteBeatle

By far the best post beatles song by any member of the band. Imagine shouldn't even be in the top 10 in my opinion.

Band on the Run, should be number one! And the jailer man and sailor sam, were voting everyone,!

Come on, it's Band On The Run! No other song carries it's powers.

12 With a Little Luck - Paul McCartney
13 Got My Mind Set On You - George Harrison
14 Live and Let Die - Paul McCartney

The most awesome song ever! It is Paul in his hardest state, besides Helter Skelter. And it kicks ass!

15 Real Love - John Lennon
16 Beautiful Girl - George Harrison
17 Photograph - Ringo Starr

Really? This song is amazing and should be 3rd, Ringo is the most underrated member of The Beatles and nobody notice the fact that he was a great lyricist

18 Here Today - Paul McCartney
19 Instant Karma (We All Shine On) - John Lennon

John Lennon was pissed of about whoever he wrote this song for. He was in anger town.

20 You're Sixteen - Ringo Starr
21 Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth) - George Harrison
22 When We Was Fab - George Harrison
23 Working Class Hero - John Lennon

One of Lennon's greatest songs

24 What is Life? - George Harrison

Just listen to it. It's a huge power track of All Things Must Pass- the greatest post Beatles Beatle album. It's so catchy and good, I was simply stunned by it.

25 Watching the Wheels - John Lennon

Another perfect pop song from John - defmay

26 Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five - Paul McCartney
27 It Don't Come Easy - Ringo Starr

Defiantly Ringo's best! Just as good as some of John, Paul and George's work! - Monners55

Written by George Harrison, so its "almost" an actual Beatle song.

28 #9 Dream - John Lennon
29 All Things Must Pass - George Harrison

This song almost was a Beatles song, but they broke up. RATS! -

No questions asked- number one post Beatle song. Just listen to it once.

30 Cheer Down - George Harrison
31 Jealous Guy - John Lennon
32 Beautiful Boy - John Lennon
33 Blow Away - George Harrison
34 Isn't It a Pity - George Harrison
35 I'm the Greatest - Ringo Starr
36 How Do You Sleep? - John Lennon

The song is so badass! The guitar riff during the chorus is unbelievable. And the verses carry perfect vibe. The only thing wrong is "Those freaks was right when they said you were dead." Too harsh there, John. But otherwise it's perfect.

37 Sue Me, Sue You Blues - George Harrison

The drums, the melody, the guitar, this is an underrated masterpiece and the best song from Living In The Material world.

38 Eat at Home - Paul McCartney

Super catchy, awesome rock track. Even John liked it.

40 Temporary Secretary - Paul McCartney
