I cannot wait for more discussions on what makes a song part of the cannon

I've been thinking about the the arguments over "canon" that we had last time. I think the problem came because the last poll was labeled as "ultimate" but didn't include all of the songs. At least this time, there is no pretense of "ultimate" being thrown about. It is going to be just as prescribed; the defining limits are being stated up front.

Allow me to end the argument. Here is the official Beatles can(n)on.

Now, if you will excuse me, I belive the UN is trying to reach me.

I think out of the Beatles Canon, when "Mr. Kite flies through the ring" he was shot out of a cannon...

Welcome Pineapple Records!

There's certainly gravitas to the word 'canon' due to its religious connotation and association with its weighty sound-alike (thank you, Zig)- as in "if you don't agree, you're in BIG trouble"

The famous DJ Dennis Elsas [he interviewed Lennon for an entire afternoon in 1974] just made an interesting comment. He was playing some of the early Beatle songs, and he said, "Ah, some of my favorite songs. I love the whole Beatle catalog, but these songs hold a special place in my heart. I don't know. Probably because these were the Beatle songs I fell in love with first..."

I think he makes a good point.

People who tend to prefer the early Beatles are probably the ones who were around when those songs came out. They were introduced to the Beatles via those early songs. And of course those people are now older and not as likely to be on the internet filling out song rankings!

But I suppose this factors in to why I think "I Want To Hold Your Hand" is in my top 10 faves.

ahdn_paul_06 It's exactly the same for me, and yet I was introduced to the Beatles via the Yellow Submarine Songtrack
