When you put your stuff in iTunes or Spotify etc., what do you put for the composer name. For songs like A Day In The Life, Across The Universe, or Cry Baby Cry, do you put Lennon/McCartney like the original agreement between John and Paul, or do you give John the true credit?

Well I use John Lennon/Paul McCartney. Same for everything - first and second names.

When I downloaded all my 2009 remasters onto iTunes, all the songs were messed up, like some songs were only credited to John, and some were only Paul, and then some were credited to The Beatles, so I credited them all to Lennon/McCartney or John Lennon and Paul McCartney. I don't remember which I did. It was just annoying me because there were songs mainly written by Paul credited to only John, and then the other way around. That was a huge waste of time, though, because when do I ever look at the composters?
