Best Beatles Solo Songs

This list has been in the works since the Rock Hall inducted Ringo Starr in the Musical Excellence category.  I was originally going to rank the Beatles' Top 40 solo songs.  But then I thought it wouldn't be too fair.  McCartney has always had the most prolific solo career, even when John and George were alive.  Ringo's solo career bottoms out after 1975, John didn't release anything from 1976-1980.  George did keep releasing stuff until his death.   Speaking of George, I didn't include his Traveling Wilburys songs.
