Favorite solo Beatles songs

I know there are many Beatles fans here. What is your favorite song by each Beatle after their breakup:
Here are mine as of now. Might change next week.

John - Mind Games
Paul - Band On The Run
George - All Those Years Ago (great tribute to John)
Ringo - Wrack My Brain (written by George, I think)

John - Imagine, by a long shot. There's a longer list of his solo stuff I didn't like.
Paul - Band On the Run
George - Faster
Ringo - It Don't Come Easy, I guess

John - Instant Karma! (Imagine is his best, I've just heard it too many times). John had more post Beatle songs I liked than all the rest put together by far. YMMV
Paul (not a big fan) - Maybe I'm Amazed
George - If Not For You (never knew if was Dylan's until just now!)
Ringo - if I have to choose any, toss up, You're Sixteen or Photograph

Sorry if this was pre-breakup.....

I listened to Heart Of The Country from Ram last week for the first time in decades. What a great song.

Not only was it pre breakup but the entire Let it Be record was recorded before Abbey Road. The boys didn't want to go out that way and came back into the studio to record their final masterpiece. Let it Be was held for release until after Abbey Road.

Popular/overplayed songs and very repetitive lyrics rarely make it into my playlist.
I don't have anything by John or Ringo.

Paul - Take it Away (a little too popular but I still like it)

George - I really Love You (I put this in my oldies collection)

I've posted this before, but it didn't have the intro. Sue me! It's not solo but I think it rocks

I've been boning up on my Ringo (I do that if I know I'm going to see a show).

Let me say (between you and me) his first solo effort "Ringo" is right up there with the other three guys. It's even got a tune with Harrison and The Band! Yay!!!

I just saw a documentary that had been sitting on my DVR for a while, called "The Trials of Muhammad Ali". It's very well done.

It had never occurred to me that "I'm The Greatest!" is an Ali line, but I remembered that Miami shot of The Beatles and Ali. Apparently Lennon and Ringo didn't forget!
