Sage man, don't undersell Paul McCartney! The partnership was EXTREMELY central to the Beatles. The weird thing about their dynamic is this, though... everyone thinks of Paul as the sappy Beatle and John as the ascerbic Beatle because that's the way they started to appear when the band was drifting and the songs were being concieved and executed almost as solo projects with guests... but when they were working most closely together, PAUL was writing the mean records and JOHN was writing the lovey-dovey stuff. It's like working so closely together made each try to match the personality of the other in their writing.

Yesterday is a contrary example to what I'm saying, but just about any callous or confrontational song the Beatles have about a woman, particularly before say Sgt Pepper, is probably by Paul.

Or maybe you were talking about John's post-Beatles stuff... but I'd be surprised to hear that described as consistant...

i've been listenin to "at the zoo" a lot lately.

"The monkeys stand for honesty,
Giraffes are insincere,
And the elephants are kindly but
They're dumb.
Orangutans are skeptical
Of changes in their cages,

And the zookeeper is very fond of rum.
Zebras are reactionaries,
Antelopes are missionaries,
Pigeons plot in secrecy,
And hamsters turn on frequently."

no no,I am definitely talking post-Beatles.

But I definitely wouldn't want to listen to the Beatles without John Lennon. Even the lovey dovey stuff. Admittedly, I do sleep on Paul McCartney and I'm having trouble getting past the idea that he was a sucker. I could be completely wrong but I get that feeling.

Yeah, John Lennon held it down. But George I think was the most important to me. I don't know if I'm just saying that cause he's dead, but I really loved what he did with the Beatles even before he died. And he has some of the best post-Beatles stuff any of them released. Sage, you should check out Brainwashed, it's hecka tight.

Paui McCartney WAS dope. Unquestionable. He wrote more beatles songs on the "1" collection than Lennon. However..."Freedom" , may be the worst song of all time.

They were all suckers in their ways... we are all suckers in our ways. Post-Beatles, Paul McCartney didn't have shit and (for a little while) John Lennon did, but what I was saying about during is that the whole mattered more than any particular part. George Martin may even have been the key to The Beatles.

I have the big collection of post-Beatles Lennon and I only like the first disc.

Then again, the big blues/break juggle at the beginning of 231 Ways To Fry An Egg is from a post-Beatles Paul McCartney instrumental called Momma Miss America. That joint's pretty tough.
