    I don't really know, they are all so different and target many different moods which is why I love them. But I think let it be was quite good.
    I agree. My favourite changes so often it'd be impossible to tell you which song I like the most. At the moment I'm very much into I Want You (She's So Heavy).

    For anyone who hasn't listened to their Love album, this is so awesome:

    In the whole Lennon vs McCartney debate Paul tends to come up short next to John, and what a load of ****e that is. I would rate them as roughly equal: people think that Lennon was the free-thinking maverick genius (and he was, in many ways), but McCartney's contribution to the band was absolutely awesome. People forget that the Beatles came very close to dissolusion after the death of Epstein, and it was McCartney who kept the band going through into the late sixties. Lennon's tragic death at forty, and his vocal role in the politics of his day seem to diminish McCartney in the eyes of the mass media and hence the millions it influences, which is utterly unfair. But there we go.

    It's impossible to nominate the best Beatles' song, but here are a few of the more obsure(ish) ones that people often forget;

    The Abbey Road Medley;
    The Ballad of John and Yoko;
    You Can't Do That;
    I Should Have Known Better;
    The Fool on the Hill;
    Dear Prudence;
    Martha My Dear;
    I'm a Loser;
    The Night Before;
    Another Girl;
    Dig a Pony;
    Your Mother Should Know;
    Do You Want to Know a Secret?;
    You Won't See Me;
    Think for Yourself;
    In My Life;
    If I Needed Someone;
    The Word;
    She's Leaving Home;
    When I'm Sixty-Four;
    All My Loving;
    Maxwell's Silver Hammer;
    Octopuses Garden;
    Don't Pass Me By.

    I could never answer this question with one song!

    Favourite at the moment is Something, but the version with Harrison alone, much more imtimate feeling imo.

    Others..
    Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
    All My Loving
    Let It Be
    Come Together
    Help
    Can't Buy Me Love
    Hey Jude - I mean half the song is "na na na nananana, nananana, hey Jude!" but it never gets old, and makes me

    I really just want to list the whole discography.:teehee:
