The whole McCartney/Lennon songwriting change was such a bore. Does it really matter two vegetarian sausages who comes first? Does anyone really look at a song like Yesterday and think that because Lennon comes first he wrote most of it?

I always liked the way the pop/funk/soul group War solved the problem: They put all the names of the band on every song on every album regardless of who wrote what, in alphabetical order so that the order does not reflect primacy of person:

S. Allen/H. Brown/M. Dickerson/L. Jordan/ C. Miller/L. Oskar/H. Scott

(Thomas) Sylvester "Papa Dee" Allen -- congas, percussion

Harold Brown -- drums

Morris "Bee Bee" Dickerson -- bass

Lonnie Jordan -- keyboards, vocals, timbales

Charles Miller -- tenor sax, flute

Lee Oskar -- harmonica, vocals

Howard Scott -- guitar, vocals

One can readily see (and if one knows their music) that the first two names listed -- the conga drummer and the drummer -- are not major contributors to the songwriting of their music.  The main writers were Lonnie Jordan (4th listed) and Howard Scott (last listed).

If the Beatles had followed this style, every song on every album would have been credited as "Harrison/Lennon/McCartney/Starkey"
