    I think this narrowly wins, by a nose.

    Though I think "Watching the Wheels" be my favorite post-Beatles song by a band member

    all of them. any of them. anything done by any Beatle automatically goes to the top of the charts for me. even when john was covering an old blues song, his cover was original and great. anyone else covering the same song is just derivative.

    I can agree...

    I actually think Ringo had some underrated solo stuff. While it is not my favorite thing in the world, I can totally see the merit in this

    Wings greatest hits, followed closely by John Lennon's Greatest Hits

    I don't care for George Harrison's greatest hits

    Are we allowed to include groups the fellas had put together after the Beatles? Or are we talking strictly solo?

    This most definitely, then Imagine, then McCartney. Double Fantasy is good as well.

    All Things Must Pass is the greatest solo Beatles record ever.
