Sean Ono Lennon, son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, likes The Beatles’ albums “Revolver” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” His own music shows his love for the ’60s style. He’s even involved in a song with James McCartney, showing a new mix of Lennon-McCartney talent. Lennon is known for being different, making music that’s hard to label. He’s been part of many groups like Cibo Matto and The Claypool Lennon Delirium. He’s also made solo albums and music for movies.

Here are five songs that show how great Sean Ono Lennon is.

“Into the Sun” – Into the Sun (1998)

“Into the Sun,” from his first solo album, feels like a mix of bossa nova and his dad’s singing style. He made this album with Yuka Honda in New York and had Zak Starkey, Ringo Starr’s son, play drums on it. The Beastie Boys liked it so much they released it on their label. “Into the Sun” makes you think of sunny days and love with lines like:

And when the day is done
I will follow you into the sun
And after all my love
I will follow you into the sun

“Parachute” – Friendly Fire (2006)

His song “Parachute” is from his album “Friendly Fire” and mixes soft rock with deep feelings. It talks about love and struggle, using music to help share his personal stories. Even though Lennon comes from a famous family, he deals with heartbreak too, which is clear in “Parachute” with its lines:

Baby, don’t you cry
You had to bring me down
We had some fun before we hit the ground

“Amethyst Realm” (South of Reality) – The Claypool Lennon Delirium (2019)

In “Amethyst Realm” by The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Lennon and Les Claypool mix different styles to create something unique. Claypool says Lennon is very talented and brings both his dad’s and mom’s influence into the music. This song is full of strange sounds and ends with a great guitar part by Lennon. The lyrics tell a wild story:

The game she played was dangerous
This kind of love is vaporous
She could sense when he was there
A fragrance upon the air

“Tomorrow Never Came” (Lust for Life) – Lana Del Rey and Sean Ono Lennon (2017)

“Tomorrow Never Came” is a collaboration with Lana Del Rey and it’s full of references to music and literature. Del Rey and Lennon sing about their heroes and dreams over dreamy music. The song connects to The Beatles with its title and even uses chords from a George Harrison song. It’s a touching track that plays with the idea of expecting something that never happens, as shown in:

I just wanted things to be the same
You said to meet me up there tomorrow
But tomorrow never came

“Animals” (Midnight Sun) – The GOASTT (2014)

Lastly, “Animals” from “Midnight Sun” by The GOASTT, a band Lennon started with Charlotte Kemp Muhl, takes a playful dig at pop culture over a psychedelic folk tune. This song goes back to the ’60s style Lennon loves. It talks about strange happenings like messages from Jesus on food and bizarre conspiracies:

Animals have escaped the zoo
Coming down 5th Avenue
Now there’s nothing left to do
Stop running away
