John Lennon is just really good. There are a lot of really good songs on these lists. It's really hard to pare it down, because it feels like we're overlooking things. At least I think so. Like many of the songs on lists that I didn't have in my 5 (or mention the difficulty of leaving out thereafter) I thought could easily have been on some given day. Watching The Wheels, or Love, or Remember, or Nobody Loves You (When You're Down And Out), etc. Great, great songs.

5 is clearly not enough!!

Well, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is one of my top 5 LPs ever, and it's a hard one to break into single tracks (disagree with the dude earlier who said it doesn't have good melodies -- I think it does!). Imagine is also great. The 1972 to 1974 stuff was later dismissed by Lennon himself as "dogshit", but there are some good tracks mixed in with the overproduced, saxophone-soloed crap. After that, there's only one last completed album (which was shared between John and Yoko equally). In other words, there isn't a lot of stuff to choose from.

OK, if I have to do five...

1. Imagine
2. Instant Karma!
3. Beautiful Boy
4. Happy Xmas (War is Over)
5. Woman

But again, the JL/Plastic Ono Band album is better than anything, taken as a whole. I think it's better than any Beatles' album, pound-for-pound.
