One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I've thought about it and decided that George Martin is the true 5th Beatles due to playing something on at least one song on each album, as well as his important insiderness and arrangement skills and in all honesty, The Beatles would've flunked without him.

I'd vote, if I weren't already satisfied with the results.

Maybe you should try posting more.

Poor old Pete wasn't even really the fifth Beatle when they were John, Paul, George, Stuart and Pete.

I voted George Martin, but I am considering changing it to Billy Preston.
