Hiya!

Okay, I'll come clean: I work at Gold Radio and we're hosting a competition to find the 300 greatest songs of all time, and we'd love Beatlemaniacs to get involved and tell us all about their fave Fab Four tracks. PERSONALLY I'm running with 'Strawberry Fields Forever' as my pick for the top (not especially original, I know). What are your own choices? We want to know, and you could win prizes if you tell us!

For info, Alex cleared this with me before posting. I'll move the thread to a more appropriate part of the forum though – it doesn't belong in the rules/help section.

Cool. I'm going with ADitL, T&S, and SFF.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Well, a-hard-days-night-george-4 only had 22 songs (not including Anthologies) done by the band, and only 5 of which I believe are Grade A work.

Mine are kind of typical. :D

"A Day In The Life" (duh)

"Strawberry Fields Forever" (also duh)

"Nowhere Man" (maybe not so duh) 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.
