When Lennon left the Beatles his solo work became more personal and, as a result, sometimes a lot creepier too.
- "God" is perhaps the single scariest song ever recorded. The tune is far too bouncy to be a dirge and far too funereal to be a rhapsody, the piano chords have this biting quality like a wild animal snapping at you, and Lennon's vocals sound about twelve times as ghostly as they did in "A Day in the Life".
- It's a Tearjerker to hear him denounce each of his influences, finally ending with The Beatles and then sing "The Dream is over... I was the Walrus/But now, I'm John/."
- "Cold Turkey": A song about Lennon quitting his heroin addiction. It's an uncomfortable song in which Lennon sings about feeling ill and desperate. To top it all off, the last lines are just him screaming and moaning his pain away.
