I want to say McCartney. Partly because Lennon is the "cool" choice, and partly because I'm a big admirer of Paul McCartney's character and I'm in awe of his drive and his artistic imagination.
But when I review my favorite Beatles songs, I have more Lennon than McCartney songs in the list.
My list has changed over the years, of course, but this is where I stand now.
- A Day in the Life
- And Your Bird Can Sing
- Ballad of John and Yoko
- Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey
- Happiness is a Warm Gun
- Hey Bulldog
- I've Just Seen a Face
- Strawberry Fields Forever
- You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
|Sgt. Peppers - 50 years ago this summer
But it's entirely possible that I've listened to the classics like Eleanor Rigby, Yellow Submarine and Hey Jude so often I've gone right off of them.
