The Beatles: 10 Best Solo Songs


9. Working Class Hero – John Lennon

LennonWCH

A simple acoustic masterpiece which finds Lennon getting rather insightful, with commentary on the western world’s class divisions.

The B-side of a notably more popular Lennon song that will be mentioned later, Working Class Hero is wonderfully Bob Dylan-ish and is a fantastic ode to working class life. Lennon took some flak for it upon its release, with many quick to point out that as a rock star he was not quite working class, let alone a working class hero, but they’re the only criticisms that can be fairly levelled this songs way, because both musically and lyrically it is top, top notch.
