* AwesomeMusic: Choose any album and you'll find plenty, except perhaps on his first three experimental albums.
* BrokenBase: You'll be hardpressed to find a lot of people who like any of Lennon's first three albums, especially ''Music/UnfinishedMusicNo1TwoVirgins'', which is basically NoiseRock (with more emphasis on ''noise'') and a LeaveTheCameraRunning recording.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Happy Christmas (War is Over)
* EarWorm: ''Imagine there's no heaven''...
** "Everybody's talkin' and no one says a word...."
** "Well we all shine on! Like the moon and the stars and the sun!"
* FunnyAneurysmMoment / HarsherInHindsight: The lyrics "First you must learn to smile as you kill" in Lennon's song "Working Class Hero" from ''Music/{{Imagine}}'' and the line "shoot me" in "Come Together" from ''Music/AbbeyRoad'', among others.
** He mentioned guns a lot. He got shot. See the [[{{FunnyAneurysmMoment/Music}} FunnyAneurysm/Music]] page for the inevitable LongList.
* JerkassWoobie: Possibly the king of this trope.
* MagnumOpus: The most frequently cited contenders among his solo recordings are ''Music/JohnLennonPlasticOnoBand'' and ''Music/{{Imagine}}''.
* NightmareFuel: Has [[NightmareFuel/JohnLennon its own page now.]]
* SignatureSong: "Music/{{Imagine}}".
* SweetDreamsFuel: "Beautiful Boy." Justified in that it's supposed to be a lullaby.
