i love the songs you named...i guess my point is that i can't get into more than 7 or 8 of his solo songs, so a compilation is the most i would reccomend.

- 5 points for his constant blabbering at the end of songs. I'm reminded of Borrowed Time. It makes Bonoglese seem like English Lit. Actually, Borrowed Time is a fantastic song for about the first 10 seconds, but then it fails to actually start - kind of like an old tractor.


Legend of course, I was watching a retrospective on him a while ago and they had the Jealous Guy video with him alone playing piano and such, I almost shed a tear.

It's better than Yoko fake-orgasming over the end of a song. Almost ruined sex for me forever.

Oh, and people here think everything is overrated.

John Lennon was still better than the Grateful Dead.

Hippies are awful.

Here's the tracklist for the Working Class Hero compilation

DISC 1:
1. (Just Like) Starting Over
2. Imagine
3. Watching The Wheels
4. Jealous Guy
5. Instant Karma
6. Stand By Me
7. Working Class Hero
8. Power To The People
9. Oh My Love
10. Oh Yoko
11. Nobody Loves You When You're Down And Out
12. Nobody Told Me
13. Bless You
14. Come Together - (Live)
15. New York City
16. I'm Stepping Out
17. You Are Here
18. Borrowed Time
19. Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

DISC 2:
1. Woman
2. Mind Games
3. Out Of The Blue
4. Whatever Gets You Through The Night
5. Love
6. Mother
7. Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)
8. Woman Is The Nigger Of The World
9. God
10. Scared
11. #9 Dream
12. I'm Losing You - (Anthology Version)
13. Isolation
14. Cold Turkey
15. Intuition
16. Gimme Some Truth
17. Give Peace A Chance
18. Real Love
19. Grow Old With Me

What I find particularly amusing about this is that the vast majority of all other artists (and that includes U2 :P) cannot claim to have written the same amount of top quality, universally known songs in their entire career. - and this only represents his post Beatles solo work, not his most creative period.

....but he is so, sooooo overrated
