I was asked to do a John Lennon songs list after I did one for Paul McCartney and Wings. The list is songs he did without the Beatles, if you want to see a list of Beatles songs go here.

I have also decided to add the songs of the other 2 Beatles George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Underneath John’s list.

John Winston Lennon was born on October 9th 1940 in Liverpool and died on the 8th December 1980 aged 40. His work with the Beatles was well documented see above.

Despite a legendary career with the Beatles and as a solo artist, John Lennon remains underrated for his guitar playing skills. I read a great piece about John’s rhythm guitar playing on the  Beginner Guitar HQ check it out it is a great read.


Before the Beatles split John had a couple of songs in the charts and a whole lot more after, So here are the songs of the great man.

A little known fact about Ringo is that he did the narration between 1984-1986 of the children’s tv series Thomas & Friends. The series is built around Thomas The Tank Engine books written by Reverand W, Awtry. You must have seen it or made to watch it by your children or grandchildren. I have, only last week actually:)


I hope you found this post useful and you found what you wanted regarding John Lennon with the addition of George Harrison and Ringo Starr’s songs too. As I said at the beginning I did another post on Paul McCartney and Wings Songs.

They all had a few hits after they split, but they could never better the success they had when they were together in the 60’s.

If you liked this post leave a comment below, perhaps you went to see one of the 3 in concert. Let me know how it went I would love to know.


If you get a minute could you please pop over to my Facebook Page and join us. I plan to build this page this year as I have more time on my hands since retiring.  I am trying to get people to share their favourite 70s music.  As you know we do not all like the same songs and it would be great to hear page members favourite 70s songs.  I hope to see you there soon.

Thanks For Visiting Today. Make sure you come back as I build the site, leave a comment below if there is any singer or group you think I should add to the site.
