Greatest lennon songs on each Beatles album

Postby Bluebird » Wed Apr 02, 2008 4:02 pm

I was the man behind the topic in the Paul section, now we try with Johns.

PPM: Please please me
WTB: It wont be long
AHDN: A hard days night
BFS: No reply
HELP: Help
Rubber soul: Girl
Revolver: And your bird can sing
Sgt. Pepper: A day in the life
Magical mystery tour: I am the walrus
The White Album 1 and 2: Hapiness is a warm gun - Everybody´s got something to hide..etc
Yel sub: All you need is love
Abbey road: Come together
Let it be: Across the universe:
Past 1: This boy
Past 2: Revolution

Interresting in 3 cases my Lennon fave is also the title track. PPM, AHDN and HELP.
You must appreciate the day...

I'm choosing the songs John sang mainly the lead on which I presume he wrote or had the bigger part in writing -

PPM - Please Please Me
WTB - It Won't Be Long
AHDN - Anytime At All
BFS - Eight Days A Week
Help - You've Got To Hide Your Love Away
RS - Nowhere Man
Revolver - Tomorrow Never Knows
SPLHCB - A Day In The Life
MMT - I Am The Walrus
White Album - Dear Prudence
Abbey Road - Come Together
Let It Be - Across The Universe
Man I could smell your breath a mile away.

PPM: Please please me - Agree.
WTB: It wont be long - Agree, for now (unless I can think of something later - it's the middle of the night and I can't sleep...)
AHDN: A hard days night - Disagree - one of my least favorites - for me it's "I Should Have Known Better".
BFS: No reply - Agree for now.
HELP: Help - See previous answer...
Rubber soul: Girl - Disagree - for me it's "In My Life" (one of my all-time favorites :salute )Revolver: And your bird can sing - hmmmm...OK.
Sgt. Pepper: A day in the life - guess I should agree, it's being revolutionary and everything, but I enjoy "Being for the Benefit of Mr.Kite" better.
Magical mystery tour: I am the walrus - again one of my least favorites... I'll go with "All You Need is Love".
The White Album 1 and 2: Hapiness is a warm gun - Everybody´s got something to hide..etc - No, I'd go for "Julia".
Yel sub: All you need is love - Actually I enjoy "Hey Bulldog"...
Abbey road: Come together - Oh, can't stand this one - I choose "Because".
Let it be: Across the universe: - Totally agree :salute

I wouldn´t consider that as a macca or a lennon composition, but a pure collaboration. Macca found out the chords and the rest they almost wrote together.
