*Two of his fab 3 songs come to mind:
*
*No Reply - stalking
*Run for your Life - homicidal
*Norwegian Wood -burns down his girlfriends flat
*
*2 others, one from the fab years, and 1 from the solo years, come to mind for other reasons
*
*Yer Blues - suicidal
*Cold Turkey - self explanatory

Those would be the ones that would come to mind for me to. There might be a few others that I can't think of off hand. I can't imagine Cold Turkey working as a Beatles song. John apparently was pissed when Paul and George refused to work on it. If Paul and George had agreed I do think the song would've turned out somewhat differently. I don't think they would've been up for John's moaning and screaming at the end. It perhaps would've been recorded more in a Yer Blues type of style. But Cold Turkey definitely kind of foreshadowed the Plastic Ono Band album. In other words pretty raw.
