4. Oh My Love (Imagine)
A song that was co-written with Yoko Ono, and features some guitar works from George Harrison, and it expressed the writers’ relationship.
The song is one of his best and beautiful love song, released on his 1971 album IMAGINE. You will indeed feel the pain and the love on this song, as Lennon, testified his undying love for Yoko. You got to give it Yoko as well, a song like this one wouldn’t exist if she was not around on Lennon’s life at the time.
3. Jealous Guy (Imagine)
He refers to himself as a jealous type of guy, admitting of “shivering inside” and “swallowing my pain.”
Lennon really felt insecure when he wrote this song, as he considered himself as a Jealous Guy, he thought that Yoko might not love him anymore, but the outcome was this, one of the most beautiful love songs in the world.
2. Grow Old With Me (Milk and Honey)
Inspired by the poet Robert Browning – a soulful and heart-melting song dedicated to his beloved spouse, Yoko Ono.
The only sad thing about this song – we never got the chance to see them grow old together. The couple had indeed a magical ride but was cut short by a tragic ending.
1. Woman (Double Fantasy)
An open letter to all the women he encountered throughout his life until he met the ONE.
All the love songs Lennon have written during his solo career were without a doubt dedicated by one woman, and it’s Yoko. She was a very special woman to John Lennon, and thanks to her we got the chance to hear a great song. John Winston Lennon lives forever with this beautiful song.
