The Beatles are the best pop band in history. As such, I appreciate their pop songs so much more than their more experimental or heavy songs because they're not the best rock band in history - to extend that thought: Paul McCartney, the melodic pop genius, contributed greatly to my favourite songs so I guess he's my favourite Beatle.

I don't know much about his personality or the Beatles' sordid past so he could be the world's biggest egotist and I wouldn't have the slightest clue - all I know is that I love his schmaltzy stuff more than any of the noisy stuff Lennon put out (Warm Gun, Walrus) or the Hare Krishna stuff of Harrison. But yes it does get a bit too saccharine for me too - I can't stand Let it Be or Hey Jude. George's Something is probably my favourite song by any Beatle ever... but Sgt Pepper's is a McCartney-led masterpiece and the Lennon-only songs are the weakest parts of the album.

If you've never heard it, put it on for 39 minutes. You won't regret it.
