I have to say, besides Kurt Cobain, John Lennon is one of my favorite pillars of rock and roll. That being said, George Harrison is my favorite Beatle, he wrote most of my favorite Beatles songs including, Savoy Truffle, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, If I Needed Someone, Think For Yourself, Within You Without You, I Want To Tell You, Something and Here Comes the Sun.

At least one of you has to like The Beatles. I'll bet you're all McCartney/Lennon fans.

i like the beatles. while my guitar gently weeps is a great song. :)

i like the early years of the beatles the best.

you're right... i'm more of a McCartney fan. but i enjoy some of Harrison's stuff as well. :) not much of a Lennon fan, to be honest.

i can't stand their really early stuff....but i really like their stuff that they put out towards the end of their career as a band. it's more instrument-oriented and cool

Yeah, I can't stand the love years. I like John Lennon and Paul McCartney's heaveily drug influenced writing. Revolver, Magical Mystery Tour, Sgt. Pepper's, those are all really great.

Yeah, Revolver and White Album are my 2 favorites. If I had to pick one, it'd be White Album, but Revolver is a close second.

Actually, i'm more of a Ringo guy myself. :) But he didn't do much song writing now did he. ;) But with a name like Ringo Starr, you have to be one of THE coolest guys alive.

I don't care much for the Beatles, but there is one song I absolutely go crazy over...

"I am the eggman/they are the eggmen/I am the walrus!/goo goo gajoob!"

That has to be one of the best acid trip songs ever written. :D

i think Lennon had more issues, personally...

i like beatles songs here and there but would not consider myself a "hardcore" fan.

I think it can be universally agreed upon that George Harrison's solo career is the best.

Within You Without You? You like that song? Haha I thought it was the farthest from the beatles I've ever heard. So who was on acid when they wrote that song?

George Harrison wrote it. I mostly like it for the lyrics, and the... Unique sound it has.

Alright... The Beatles own your soul, but not as much as Led Zeppelin or Nirvana do.

I wonder if I'm the only one here who actually likes Wings...

I can't say I'm the biggest fan of Wings. Without John Lennon, Paul McCartney's song writing plummeted.
