Today is Oct. 9, which means that your social media feeds will probably be filled with people wishing John Lennon a happy birthday.
He was born on Oct. 9, 1940 and died on Dec. 8, 1980 at age 40 when he was shot outside his New York apartment.
During his ten years as a solo artist, Lennon released seven original studio albums. He also recorded plenty of singles and experimental albums with Yoko Ono, but he saved his best material for the studio albums.
With such a short career, it’s amazing that he did make as much music as he did, especially when you take into account that he took five years off to raise son Sean (who also celebrates his birthday today).
This list is a ranking of those seven solo albums, from worst to first. Click next to check it out.
