Definitely John. It's just hard to explain. I got into his solo music first, then into Beatles. He wrote so many amazing songs and along with Paul made a greatest music songwriter in history of music. Oh and his voice! :) . I think this interview sums up my view on Lennon:

I always had John as my fave Beatle as i loved his attitude most of the time and i got him but after the Anthology George joined him on that level. George came across in the anthology amazingly well, you could tell that he knew the music was great yet at the same time didnt try to over or under hype it, just give it respect whilst having a laugh and trying to enjoy himself. I actually surprise myself when i find i favour Paul the least yet know he is an absolute legend and is generally underrated in what he has achieved in his life and what he has given to so many. It makes so sense.

"Well, probably we'll sell less records, less people'll go to see the film, we'll write less songs, and we'll all die of failure" (John Lennon 8/64)

I was never able to choose a favorite, and still can't. As has often been said, the whole seems greater than the sum of the parts.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

I have a hard time choosing, too, but Ringo is my favorite out of them all. I don't know why exactly. Call me what you will, but I think it's because we're similar (laid back, good sense of humor, not egotistic).

"I'd tell her I love her, but she'd only reject me in the end and I'd be frustrated. That's why I play guitar; it's my active compensatory factor" -Ringo said something like this once, I changed it up a bit.

When I first got into the Beatles (I mean REALLY got into them), it was John who was the undisputed genius of the Beatles for me. I was fascinated by the sheer complexity of his character, his poetry, his wit. Then, as time wore on, I began to pay more attention to Paul's merits and contributions, finding myself staggered by his musical talent and productivity; and I've always liked his post-Beatles music the best by a long way, so I suppose I'd have to say Paul overall.

But nowadays, with my view having evened and mellowed out a bit, I find that to judge my favourite when they were still the Beatles is really impossible. I go through phases of each one whereby I might listen to only George songs and read voraciously about George's life and work for several weeks, and then it changes again and I have a Ringo phase, or a John phase, or a Paul phase or whatever. And then I'll have the occasional phase where the only way to listen to them is all at once, and I remember the key, undeniable fact, which parlance illustrated so well above:
