My favorite Beatle is George Harrison!

 

...

And last month it was Paul McCartney

For the year prior to that it was John Lennon.

Next month it might be Ringo Starr

 

Am I the only one that can't decide on a favorite Beatle?  OK to be honest deep down I think my favorite is John Lennon, but there are times where I go weeks without listening to John songs or reading about him.  Last month I got super into Ram and McCartney and slowly moved up the solo catalog, created an iPod play list of all Paul songs from Beatles to now, watched Paul videos on youtube, read stuff on the internet about Paul or Pauls perspective on Beatle related events, etc.

Now this month I'm doing the exact same thing with George.  Not on purpose...it just sort of happened. I pledged to dive into some of the less popular albums and songs in his solo career and a few days later I'm all George all the time and not really as interested in Paul or John or Ringo.  I'm convinced George is my favorite Beatle...until he's not.

I've had brief Ringo moments too!

Anyways, while my man love affair with John was the longest, I feel equally pulled by the other 3 at different times.  Please tell me I'm not the only one!

 

PS Beware Of Darkness is the greatest song ever written right now.  Last month it was "Monkberry Moon Delight"...the month before "Oh My Love".  Oh yeah, I guess some of the actual Beatle songs are ok as well :)

I replied to this a couple of hours, and it's disappeared! The clip is from a BBC Radio show (maybe Saturday Club?). Believe they're being interviewed on set of A Hard Day's Night. They start it slow, "John... ... Paul... ... George... ... Ringo... ..." build a bit of speed "John... Paul... George... Ringo..." and build into the chant. What you've heard is an edit, that just happens to start with Ringo.

That brief clip of John with the acoustic guitar singing "
Imagine" onstage...when was this? What was that about appearing with Yoko in NY raising money for the retarded?? Those aren't related, are they?

The appearance with Yoko in NY raising money for the retarded was the "One to One" concert 30 August 1972 at Madison Square Garden, released as Live In New York City. That they say "last year..." is just one of those mistakes that creep into news reports.

The clip of Imagine is from A Salute to Sir Lew (Grade) on 18 April 1975:
