The Beatles. Enough Said.

Photo from here

So, yeah, the Beatles are amazing. They changed the sound of pop music and continue to be an influence on songwriters today. And I know they wrote smart music, ironic and meaningful music, protest music, but my favorite of their songs are their love songs. And though I admire John Lennon's cleverness and vision, I'm really more of a fan of Paul's songwriting - sweet, charming or kinda sexy.

Which of the Beatles' do you think was the best (or at least your favorite) songwriter? Why? I plan to do a song sketch by whichever one wins the poll!

P.S. Feel free to follow me! I promise only ever to lead you to bright, sunny places!
P.P.S. It looks like most of you are like me and take forever to take down decorations; 60% of those who answered said you leave them up for a while! Yay for procrastinators! And I guess the general consensus is that to de-decorate, ya just have to grin and bear it. Oh well.


  1. Hmmm, that's a hard one! I think I like the earlier Beatles songs, they're just so bouncy and bright! So whoever wrote those, go with it! lol

  2. I love the beatles :D
    Great blog


  3. The beatles are great. Fab blog! :) ♥ xxxx

  4. Difficult. It’s the combination of Paul ànd John which made The Beatles so unique. I guess for a real Beatles fan this question is nearly unanswerable. Whatever song you pick it will sound great!

  5. I'm with Rob -John AND Paul. It's very hard to name a great song that 'the other one' wasn't involved in. After all Lennon wrote Revolution No 9 on his own and Paul wrote Maxwell's Silver Hammer without any help from John...


Thank you for leaving your musings! I appreciate each and every one.
