I have so many as I'm a huge fan but one of them that always stood out to me because it was the first solo song I ever heard was Nobody Told Me. In fact that whole Milk and Honey album is one of my favorite albums period.
Imagine is one of the greatest songs of all time. Something as simple and basic as this song should not be this moving. It's absolutely incredible.
To be completely hack, I also like "Watching The Wheels".
"Luck of the Irish" and "How do you Sleep?".....[QUOTEIf you have the luck of the Irish,
You'd be sorry and wish you were dead
You shold have the luck of the Irish
And you'd wish you was English instead!
A thousand years of torture and hunger
Drove the people away from their land,
A land full of beauty and wonder
Was ***** by the British brigands!
If you could keep voices like flowers
There'd be shamrocks all over the world.
If you could drink dreams like the Irish streams
Then the world would be high as the mountain of mourn
In the Pool they told us the story
How the english divided the land,
Of the pain, the death and the glory
And the poets of auld Eireland
If we could make chains with the morning dew
The world would be like Galway Bay
Let's walk over rainbows like leprechauns
The world would be one big Blarney stone
Why the hell are the English there anyway?
As they kill with God on their side!
Blame it all on the kids and the IRA!
As the bastards commit genocide][/QUOTE]
If its with the Beatles its "happiness is a warm gun" on his own "starting over" I know that song is a little poppy,but has really good lyrics and I think it really described a different path his life was going to go and not just musically.
