Not predictable at all Linde. We have all chosen different songs, we have our preferences. Cheers,

Haven't dove into the solo careers of John and George much yet, and only heard little more than an album of Ringo's, but here's mine til I know more!

a-hard-days-night-john-1
Imagine (since it's the album I know most of)
What You Got (out of what I know I have the most fun listening to this one.)

a-hard-days-night-paul-5
Wings Greatest Band On The Ram? No?
Maybe I'm A Dear Hi Boy?
Too hard!! paul-mccartney

a-hard-days-night-george-10
Don't really know many albums of George's sadly... Haven't gotten to his solo stuff yet but I'll say Cloud 9 because my favorite song by him issss....
Got My Mind Set On You (seems optimistic to me, a fun song too. Love the music video with George doing a backflip!)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-10
Ringo (the easiest [confident] decision so far!)
I'm The Greatest (probably followed by it don't come easy)

Well... I feel like I need to do more solo listening now!

And the Macca section also displays the known fact of how indecisive I am!!

I'm not even going to bother picking songs because it's too difficult.

 

John Lennon - John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band

Paul McCartney - Um... uh... I'll go with, uh... Band On The Run... I think...

George Harrison - All Things Must Pass

Ringo Starr - Ringo

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces. I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

John: Imagine/Instant Karma

Paul: Band On The Run/Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five

George: Cloud Nine/This is Love

Ringo: Ringo/I'm the Greatest

This seemed like a good idea for a thread, so I thought I'd revive it and see if anyone else wants to reply to it.

Songs are far more difficult so wont otherwise there would be about 20 of them.

John: 'John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band'

Paul: 'Wings At The Speed Of Sound' or 'McCartney II'

George: 'All Things Must Pass'. 'Cloud Nine' would have been closer a while back but in parts that album sounds very 80's.

Ringo: 'Ringo'.

I'll try my best to choose just one or two songs.

John: John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band / Crippled Inside

Paul: Off The Ground or McCartney II / Somebody Who Cares or Maybe I'm Amazed

George: Living in the Material World / Beautiful Girl or Behind That Locked Door

Ringo: Ringo / The No No Song
