Top Ten Beatles hits, post break-up

This is really not what I intended to do with this blog, but for fuck’s sake, I’m dealing with Ringo doubters!

Here is a list of top ten songs by the Beatles, both solo and together, after their break-up. I say “songs” instead of singles, because George’s “My Sweet Lord/Isn’t It a Pity” single charted as a double A-sided hit. So both songs went to number one on the charts.

Here you go. In roughly chronological order, with chart position listed after. This is the last time I’m doing this, so pay attention!:

  1. Hey, for my money, 1973’s Ringo is as good an album as anything the other three released. Of course, it helped that the other three had a hand in…

  2. Good stuff. Gotta pass this on to my Beatles-loving kids.
