Actually, Toe..now that I think about it, Jealous Guy, in the other form, was rejected.

Loco Mo:
I agree with all of Nimrod's and tkitna's comments.

It's fun reading replies over multiple years time.

I consider myself a "John" person more than a Paul person.  That said, the notion of one being better than the other on a particular album or overall is a tough one.  The album is great because they both contributed great songs.  ADITL is great because of both John's parts and Paul's middle. 

Again, fighting over supremacy when few others have provided repeated greatness and depth is silly.

Agreed. They're the best combination in music and won't ever be topped. If push comes to shove, I'm a John guy. But I'm more than happy to heap praise on Paul. He really was firing on all cylinders towards the end of the Beatles' recording history.
