The solo albums are actually quite incredible, considering most solo albums by some other band were most of the time awful. Somehow, the Beatles solo albums seemed to be different and even more fantastic songs came out. Here's what I consider to be my favorite Beatles solo albums/songs

Paul - 

        Album - Venus and Mars
Song - Junior's Farm 

John -
Album - Plastic Ono Band
Song - (Tie) God/#9 Dream

George -
Album -  All Things Must Pass
Song - Crackerbox Palace

Ringo -
Album - Ringo
Song - It Don't Come Easy

Paul:

Album- Band on the Run

Song- Nineteen Hundred Eighty-Five

John:

Album- Imagine

Song- Gimme Some Truth

George:

Album- All Things Must Pass

Song- (Tie!) Wah-Wah and All Things Must Pass

I have to say, I love Band on the Run as an album, every song is a gem. As is All Things Must Pass, what a collection of songs.

I'm honestly not all that familiar with the bulk of Paul or Ringo's solo work.

For Paul it'd be Band on the Run/Band on the Run, though this might change as I spend more time listening to his stuff.

John - /Plastic Ono Band - Songs - God (though I prefer the more raw version from Anthology), Mother, Love, Watching the Wheels.

George - All things Must Pass - Songs - My Sweet Lord (despite the Krisna aspect), Beware of Darkness.

John - Album: Imagine.  Song: Oh My Love (or Stand By Me)

Paul - Album: McCartney.  Song: Man We Was Lonely

George - Album: All Things Must Pass.  Song: practically all on that album, starting with Isn't It a Pity, All Things Must Pass, I'd Have You Anytime and If Not For You

Ringo - Album: Ringo.  Song: The Greatest.  (totally delightful, and so happy that John wrote it for him...)

(It's always surprised me that the best Beatle solo album, by far it seems to me, was one of George's as opposed to John or Paul.)

Now I feel very contrarian for my choices. :-)

Ringo:

- Sorry, lads, I'm really not familiar with his solo work

George:

- Album: Somewhere in England

- Song: All those Years Ago

John:

- Album: Mind Games

- Song: Meat City

Paul:

- Album: Venus and Mars

- Song: You Gave Me the Answer

Yes, I know, I have ecclectic tastes.

It's just that "Meat City" was the first solo Lennon song I ever heard, so it's always going to have that special place for me.

As for Macca, I love 99.9% of his solo work, but "You Gave Me the Answer" was the sequel to "Honey Pie" that I'd been searching for.

Not a bit like Cagney.

Can't speak for John and George as I haven't really explored their solo work, but I like Paul's "Maybe I'm Amazed" off Band On The Run and Ringo's "The No No Song" off of......I can't remember the album name.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Nothing I love more than "waking up to the sound of music…"

Not familiar with Paul, John, and Ringo's solo work, but I am very fond of George's. Listen to Electronic Sound. Everything on that album is a masterpiece of noise.

I've only heard Band On The Run and All Things Must Pass from Paul and George. Loved them both. My favourite songs from those albums would be Jet and Wah Wah. My favourite Paul song from anywhere would be Live And Let Die (live electric versions more than the orchestra Bond version).

I've never heard any Ringo albums but I've downloaded a few of his songs. My favourite is Back Off Boogaloo. Ringo's songs are always so catchy - probably because they're so simple.

From John I've heard Imagine and Double Fantasy. Too much Yoko on the latter so Imagine is my favourite. Gimme Some Truth is probably my favourite, although its usually whatever one I've listened to the most recently.

I've not heard much of their solo stuff, it's something I've been meaning to correct for a while.

Actually can we say The Traveling Wilburys for George? I've always loved his song Heading For The Light. Also his last album, Brainwashed has a lot of really good songs on it.
