Once the Beatles broke up, each solo Beatle had a lot of success. Their careers as solo artists produced songs that are unforgettable. John Lennon had “Imagine.” Paul McCartney has “Silly Love Songs.” George Harrison had “My Sweet Lord.” And Ringo Starr has “It Don’t Come Easy.” In addition to producing their own songs, each solo Beatle covered a few well-known songs. Let’s focus on those cover songs. I put together my favorite John, Paul, George and Ringo covers of the originals.
