Can't say I'm over-familiar with all of these but 'Ballad of John and Yoko' is dreadful.

there are a few covers missing from there... Bed Seeds, A Whole Lot Better...

Ballad of John and Yoko sounds like a pub jam of drunks.

:lol: :lol: Not unlike the Beatles' own version. Who do you think would win a drinking contest? My bet would be on Ringo, but I don't think he even played on the original recording.

My fave is He'd Be A Diamond. #2 is probably Burned.

I didn't want to jump into conclusions :wink:

didn't someone ask Ray in who would win a drinking contest and he said that in quantity probably Norman but is speed, it would be him... or vice versa.

I'll pick up a cover from there, Here Come Your Man... as i'm listening to this album (pixies) today

I think so. I meant more of a Beatles vs. TFC thing. What the hell am I thinking about this for? I have work to do, so they tell me.

Just as long as they believe I'm doing it.

Yeah, and as far as smoking anything goes, I'd have to put my money on McCartney. Hard to beat all that experience.

Norman, if you're going to post do it under your name will ya. :D

"Tell Me What You See" is great apart from the fact that they DON'T DO THE CHORUS BIT! This really annoys me. If you are around Norman what was the decision to not do "that bit". Its Fannies-perfect.

He didn't; Paul played the drums on it. George and Ringo were absent. Fact. :wink:
