I found 4 on each list I'm not crazy about but I think John's gutsy return to his R&R takes my vote.

Moogmodule:
Overall I'd probably plump for the John cuts.  While Revolution 9 and Mary Jane are never going to make a "best of" pretty much every other song I'm happy to listen to.

There's probably more songs id skip on Paul's list.

Not much in it though. There's excellent stuff on both sides.

tkitna:
I'd take John's tunes.

blmeanie:
Sorry, neither hangs as well without the contrast the other's songs provide.  You need a McCartney song somewhere in the mix to break up the John string of songs and same the other way.  Even though they basically were solo-ish songs (many of them) by themselves would never hang win them together as a Beatle album.

I realize that isn't where the question was intended to go but I took it as which would I rather listen to.  Both lists get weaker when the others' songs are excluded IMO.

If pressed, I would call it a draw.
