YMMV: John Lennon
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Happy Christmas (War is Over)
  • Ear Worm: 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!"
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment / Harsher in Hindsight: The lyrics "First you must learn to smile as you kill" in Lennon's song "Working Class Hero," and the line "shoot me" in "Come Together", among others.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Possibly the king of this trope.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Has its own page now.
  • Signature Song: "Imagine".
  • Tear Jerker:
    • "Mother" is almost unbearable and his astonishing vocal performance sells the utter pain and heartbreak of abandonment and loss. Especially if you have ever lost or been abandoned by a parent.
    • "God" especially the line "I was the walrus, but now I'm John". Hearing him tear apart every last bit of his former idealism from his hero Elvis Presley to The Beatles is just heartbreaking.
