Rock fans will forever wonder what would have happened to the Beatles had they carried on through the 1970s. We'll never know, but we can look to their solo projects for some answers. All four Beatles began the 1970s with very strong efforts (even Ringo had big hits) but, as the decade wore on, only Paul McCartney seemed capable of scoring on the charts. John Lennon came back strong in 1980 with Double Fantasy, though we'll obviously never know where he would have gone from there.

We asked our readers to vote for their favorite solo Beatle songs. All four of them landed at least one song in the Top 10. Click through to see the results.
