**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.


Getting Better comes to mind also with the line about being cruel and beating his woman
