John Lennon's 1971 track "How Do You Sleep" levied a torrent of musical criticisms against Paul McCartney, but the former Beatles star didn't reserve judgment on his own work either. In fact, as the following list of 20 Beatles Songs That John Lennon Hated shows, he was an equal-opportunity critic. No sacred cow went un-slaughtered.

Donovan taught John to fingerpick and, utilising the technique, Lennon wrote Dear Prudence (an exhortation to the shy, young Farrow to join in with the transcendental fun) and Julia (ostensibly about his late mother, though also about Yoko, the ‘Oceanchild’ in the lyric; Yoko literally means ‘child of the sea’ in Japanese). In all, Lennon, McCartney and Harrison wrote 17 of the songs that would appear on the White Album while in India. And, for the very first time, even Ringo wrote one. He was that bored. But John was still locked inside his own private hell. While John and Yoko were orbiting each other, McCartney was busy in his own world.
Lennon married Cynthia Powell in August 1962. The couple had one son together, Julian, who was named after Lennon's mother. Cynthia was forced to keep a very low profile during Beatlemania. She and Lennon divorced in 1968. Not long after the Beatles broke up, in 1970, Lennon released his debut solo album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, featuring a raw, minimalist sound that followed "primal-scream" therapy. He followed that project with 1971's Imagine, the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed of all Lennon's post-Beatles efforts.

The Beatles' "White Album" (the name was really "The Beatles") is a big, sprawling, messy mix of experiments, stripped down rock and moving acoustic ballads. It's the very sprawling quality that makes the album work so well. Yes, there will be some tracks that are better than others but, surprisingly, even the weaker tracks here work well when integrated with the great songs on the album
