Best Solo Beatles Songs

With all the hoopla surrounding the 50th anniversary release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,  I've decided to dig up this post which I posted two years ago.

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 stayed active through his entire post-Beatles life.  Speaking of George, I didn't include his Traveling Wilburys songs.

So here's my list of each Beatles' Top 10 solo songs, consisting of album cuts and singles.

3.  Band On The Run
4.  Live and Let Die
