Paul's Masterpiece
« on: February 15, 2005, 08:17:34 AM »

It's easy for me to pick out John's masterpiece, that would be A Day in the Life. But for Paul I don't know. Let it Be has been my favorite song since I was six, so I think I'd go with that. Any thoughts? What did I leave out?????

The Long and Winding Road.

Even though pretty much everyone else seems to hate it, that's my favorite one by Paul.

Closely followed by For No One, Let It Be, Michelle and Here, There & Everywhere.

I think that if there would have to be one song that's generally considered to be Paul's masterpiece, it'd either have to be Yesterday or Let It Be...

'Long & Winding Road' for sentimental reasons.  Pretty ambitious, if not impossible task you picked Sandra. Tough to narrow it down to just a handful of songs, but I thought you did a good job.

Yesterday is his official masterpiece, but For No One is an underrated classic.

Out of that list,,,,Eleanor Rigby and Let It Be. Hey Jude would be next for me on that list and I love the song, but its not a masterpiece in my opinion. The remainder of the songs just keep dropping down the list.

I agree about The Long & Winding Road, its a great piece of Mccartney writing.
I would have to say Eleanor Rigby, just for the mood is gets across, its a flawless song.

An amazing strings arrangement from the incredible George MArtin makes that a top contendor. ;) (Eleanor Rigby)

For No One has a great melody, and (unusually for Paul) a great set of lyrics. John was always on fire lyrics-wise, and in that period so was Paul (66-68), and George was on the rise. They are the factors that make Revolver so brilliant.

For No One, with E Rigby, P Lane, F on the Hill, and Jude as runners up.

My favorite is Hey Jude, but Yesterday is probably his masterpiece.

i picked Helter Skelter. It's just a rocking song.

i never quite understood why Eleanor Rigby was so popular. I always disliked it for some reason.

Hey Jude is his masterpiece, that is perfect songcrafting.

Sandra, I'm interested to see that you view A Day in the Life as Johns masterpiece.  What made the song so brilliant was the collaboration of Paul.  His bit, and the bridges between it (courtesy of George Martin), as well as the "I'd love to turn you on" lyric, are what make it a great song.  I definately wouldnt call this a John song.  In my opinion, Strawberry Fields Forever is his masterpiece.  Pure John, pure brilliance.

Hmm... Let It Be is my favorite Beatle song of all time, but I gotta pick Hey Jude for its awesome crowd-uniting features and incredible anthem.

Sorry LIB :'(
