Hey, Beatles bassist, I always loved "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" – but I hope for your sake that Vonbontee doesn't catch your posting!

Hahaha why, because I don't love "DML"? or because I get irritated by seeing too many Beatle smileys in a post? Irritated by the smileys themselves, in fact, ugly little unidentifiable little inkblots that they are!a-hard-days-night-paul-11 Both are true, but I would never take offense over anybody's opinion of a song, or about their smiley abuse. (OK, I WOULD bitch about that a little! But in a joking-friendly-grumpy fashion, and I'd urge them to keep on posting dozens of smileys it if they felt they really needed to…really needed to make my EYES BLEED!)

I know! "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" is great, I love early blues rock n' roll. It's my favorite cover song by The Beatles. On the other hand "Ticket To Ride" is my favorite Lennon-McCartney on Help!

If by "boring" you mean "readable" then yes, you're right!

(Just kidding, I'm sorry! Post as many smileys as you want, that's what they're there for! Even I use them once in a while, just watch me: yoko-ono-01)

Von, you're terribly difficult but it's hilarious.

To make a list like that would take way too much organization on my part… I definitely don't have the time or patience right now.

Aw, I'm not trying to be difficult – I prefer to think of it as playful! Anyway, just to finally get on topic, I'll post my list, although it's as temporary/how-I-feel-today as Strawberry Fields' list, or anybody's:

 

(13) Yellow Submarine – It's All Too Much

(12) With The Beatles – It Won't Be Long

(11) A Hard Day's Night – If I Fell

(10) Please Please MeI Saw Her Standing There

(9.5) Past Masters Vol. I – I Want To Hold Your Hand

(09) Let It BeTwo Of Us

(08) Beatles For SaleRock And Roll Music

Well, they were RECORDED in studios! 

Personally, I never consider Yellow Submarine to be a proper "studio album", but whatever.
