    No one else on the planet would write Silly Little Love Songs so thats proof he is alive. Just a stoopid conspiracy.
    Don't forget the Frog Song. Although I liked that at the time, but I was only very young when it came out ... ops:

    Caitlin Moran of the Times (of London, not NY) is, evidently, a bit of a Beatles fan too...
    You know what? The Beatles are still underrated. Seriously. The ill-minded and dim-hearted can argue about it all they like, but the simple, scientific fact is that if we were, as a species, to truly acknowledge how great the Beatles are, then every third item manufactured on Earth — bread, shoes, ploughs, USB memory sticks — would bear a tiny gold label, with, “Thank you, the Beatles”, written on it, by way of continual, rolling gratitude from Mankind.
    On this basis, then, it’s clearly a borderline insult that the BBC put out a mere “Beatles Week” this week. “Beatles Week”? Holy moly, a week’s for, I dunno, Depeche Mode. Not the Beatles — the only band who had all the Beatles in. And within this frankly derisory seven-day timespan, one documentary, How the Beatles Rocked the Kremlin, had the additional temerity to make the claim that it was the Beatles who brought an end to communist Russia.

    “Is that all?” the more passionate of us might be inclined to ask; perhaps with someone’s lapel in our fist. “Only the end of communism in the Soviet Union? What about the rest of it? What kind of a down-talker would diminish their achievements so?”

    The first time I heard these on headphones I spent several days having people trying to figure out what was wrong with my headphones. I knew something was wrong and it just didn't dawn on us that it was the records themselves.
    When i mastered the albums onto C/D's i had a choice to leave the mono mix or change it to stereo. I left all the voices on one side cause thats they way they were made.

    MattMarriott started it, doctored the evidence to support his theories, and told John Lennon he'd introduce him to this hot new artist, Yoko Ono, if he'd sing "I buried Paul", at the end of that song. The rest is history!

    The 220 stereo songs are only $219 on-line. It's already on my Xmas list.
