It's Johnny's Birthday.

As you may or may not be aware, today would have been the 65th birthday of JOHN Winston O'Boogie Ono LENNON.

And, in keeping with the Beatle birthday tradition I started this year, here's a list of my 25 favorite solo Lennon songs. I'd do Beatle songs, but that would make the list at least twice as long!

COLD TURKEY (non-album single, also available on any number of compilations)
INSTANT KARMA (We All Shine On) (non-album single, also available on any number of compilations)
I FOUND OUT from Plastic Ono Band
