"What's your favourite Lennon-McCartney song?" 

Someone: "Here Comes The Sun "

To be fair if someone asked me this and my favorite beatles song was by George I might just say this out of spite.

Well it's like an implicit exclusion of George's contributions to the Beatles by only asking someone their favorite Lennon-McCartney song, and I would only really expect someone to ask that question unless they didn't realize George (and Ringo) also wrote songs for the Beatles.  So in short it is out of spite of the person asking the question.

^^One of my bandmates thought it was 'cootchie-cootchie-cootchie-coo' (which has too many syllables, I know...) before we became bandmates

I sorted him out about 6 years ago on that one... 

 

Why does everyone find it so hard??!?

Quantcast

  

But what if someone is asking you what your favourite Lennon-McCartney song is?

They could be asking which song out of the plenty of the songs that they wrote is your favourite.

No one: 'What's your favourite Lennon-McCartney song?
Me: 'Well, I really love "Hey Bulldog " and "Here, There And Everywhere ", but those were primarily written by Lennon alone and McCartney alone, respectively, so even though they're credited to Lennon-McCartney I don't think it's fair to consider them such, so I guess I'll have to go with "If I Fell ". Well, that one was a Lennon-driven song but I think it was a little more collaborative than the others I mentioned. Or maybe "Something "*. Hey, are you still listening?'

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Ehhh, this actually sounds like someone who is informed on their music, at least enough to know that their most acclaimed releases came in the latter half of the 60s. Disliking some of their music wouldn't make someone a fake fan. 

The following people thank QuarryMan for this post:

TheWalrusWasBrian, Beatlebug

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

I don't know. I can easily see someone who is a fan of their later work not enjoying the earlier stuff, since it is not nearly as artful and mature as what came later. It's still great, for me thanks to its energy and abundance of amazing melodies, but it's definitely not for everyone.

Someone could just as easily say "I don't like the late stuff" and be just as valid.  This is about someone's personal preference.  Whether or not something is as acclaimed would have no bearing on its validity as an opinion.
