I was amazed when I couldn't find The Long And Winding Road in this list.

I think it's a Masterpiece , that could even topped that list.

TLAWR is usually seen as being too sickly due to Spectors orchestration as well as some peoples view its a bit of a dirge ie lasts too long whilst being too slow. Personally i prefer the basic take as found on Anthology 3 but still like the Spector version.

Tho TLAWR is still the Beatles last #1 single in the U.S. and will probably be so for the forseeable future if not forever.

I would really like to buy this but can only seem to find a copy online. Anyone know if it's out in Britain yet?

Whew!

When I first saw the title to this topic, I thought we had to list our top 500 favorites.

I wouldn't be concerned about whether or not a song you like is someone else's list. These things are so subjective.

Sorry for saying this, but RS lists are stupid.

 

Just a thought : How come they consider Radiohead's Kid-A is the best album of the 2000s, and yet, it's listed in the 458th place of the best 500 albums of all time? It just doesn't make sense. blue-meanie
