    like this "Paul Is Dead" myth - which they let go unanswered and didnt dispute.

    And I didn't like the messy way they broke up.

    Other than that - maybe the best at what they did except for the likes of Thomas Edison etc...

    To come up with a list of their 10 best songs is impossible

    Let It Be, Hey Jude, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Yesterday - those songs and dozens of others I would have to stiff from my top 10 list.

    If I had to choose one - it would be I Saw Her Standing There.

    Good Golly! You're sure ignorant. The Beatles didn't dispute things because the fan loser public (which you so perfectly represent here) has many myths. disputing them all would take a full time staff of dozens.

    plus Paul has addressed these things in interviews :eek:

    They were a bunch of diva drama queens.
    How do you think they stayed on top so long?
