Eleanor Rigby or Paperback Writer or Can't Buy Me Love or...well it's pretty hard to pick one.

Norwegian Wood, although I think it's only because as a teenager I could play it really well on the guitar.

Just put a new story up called Venus: My Mistress In Leather and Lace. It seems a long time since I have written any prose, been seduced by prosody. Anyway, please feel free to check it out - Thank you xxx

Here Comes the Sun.

Although the story behind it (the reason why I like it) is sad, it makes me think of how much life has to offer.

There are so many great ones. I guess I'll say Something.

I think George Harrison wrote that one about his wife that happened to be having an affair with Eric Clapton, who write Layla for her.

I love hunting down trivia on this stuff! Apparently, Something was written with .... wait for it ... Ray Charles in mind, not his wife, Patti Boyd.

Quote:
Many believe that Harrison's inspiration for "Something" was his wife at the time, Pattie Boyd. Boyd also claimed that inspiration in her 2007 autobiography, Wonderful Tonight, where she wrote: "He told me, in a matter-of-fact way, that he had written it for me."

However, Harrison has cited other sources of inspiration to the contrary. In a 1996 interview he responded to the question of whether the song was about Pattie: "Well no, I didn't [write it about her]. I just wrote it, and then somebody put together a video. And what they did was they went out and got some footage of me and Pattie, Paul and Linda, Ringo and Maureen, it was at that time, and John and Yoko and they just made up a little video to go with it. So then, everybody presumed I wrote it about Pattie, but actually, when I wrote it, I was thinking of Ray Charles."

With more than 150 versions, "Something" is the second most covered Beatles' song after "Yesterday".

"Something" but tomorrow it will be something else. That is why I love the Beatles so much.

If I Fell and Here There and EverywhereI read Lennons last interview in Playboy and he talked about Ticket to Ride and called it a piece of crap we turned out one afternoon,How many groups wish that they had one piece of crap like that?

It's waay too hard to pick just one. But here's my top 5:

#5 Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (although I prefer Elton John's cover)

#4 Maxwell's Silver Hammer (it;s so delightfully twisted)

#3 Please Please Me (for the harmony)

#2 All You Need Is Love (for the sentiment)

and my number One pick

When I'm 64! (because I am)
