But this discussion is now really boring me. So I won't be replying anymore - we're all going around in circles, saying what we've already said.

However, thanks all for the discussion. I really enjoyed it till the last couple of days.

Well that's kinda harsh. Oh well then.

You don't have to be Paul's butt boy or girl to criticize him as an artist after the breakup of the Beatles speaking as a fan because he has had mostly mediocre albums with only a few gems while he has kept his name in the spotlight for over 30 years as a former Beatle because his music has been mostly mainstream.

Gee Indica what a cheap shot. And Mairi, it looks real "I'm in the gang too" to agree with a cheap shot like that. The WORST aspect, by far, of this board, is this "ganging" up on people.

And both of YOU commit lots of grammatical mistakes. So leave out the cheap shots. People in glass houses ...

I just thought it was funny, that's all. And my grammar skills can hardly be compared to Wayne's, btw.

Uh - Police Constable No. 31 - didn't you notice it's a new angle ENTIRELY that I'm responding to?

I was responding to another gratuitous dig at Wayne.

Try and concentrate, Police Constable No. 31.

However, you do have a talent of stating the obvious!

Uh-oh. Silly person.

Your statement is ambiguous. And my grammar skills can hardly be compared to Wayne's, btw. could be taken to mean that

(1) Wayne's grammar is much better than yours (hardly worth comparing as you are so poor)

OR

(2) your grammar is so brilliant that it's a waste of time to put him in the same frame as you as he is so weak.

Some people would say that in modern English idiom your sentence means you're the grammar weakie, but I'm sure you don't think that ... but hey, maybe you were being humble. That's why I asked for the clarification.

Yeah, I meant the second one. My grammar skills may not be comparable to that of an English scholar. They are MUCH better than Wayne's, but then again so is 90% of the populations. But hey, if you want to nit-pick, go ahead.

I think most of you folk posting in this thread don't quite realize how long 500 years is. In 1505 (500 years ago), there was a wealth of popular songs - as in all times. Virtually all of them are now long forgotten. Same applies to literature, all sorts of music, art. Only the very best survive. My point is that only a few Beatles works will survive if any: and they will be Lennon's, as the songs of his I gave earlier are more than "pop hits" of their day. They feel to me to have a timeless quality, which is part of their attraction.

One of the angles on this debate that intigues me is what some folk are claiming to be the most enduring Beatles works. Paul-penned, of course (that doesn't surprise me!). But Let It Be? Come on, there is nothing in any way special about that song that would trigger it lasting 500 years. And Yesterday - Lordy, forget it! And as for Tkitna claiming uniqueness for Penny Lane over Walrus: only my desire not to be offensive prevents me from responding. But I will say Penny Lane is a pop ditty, but Walrus is a work of art. If you can't see it, well - you can't see it!

Paul has written MUCH better stuff than this. Time is an interesting filter, often leaving the popular behind, and only allowing the worthy material through. IF (a huge IF) any of Paul-penned Beatle songs survive, it is much more likely to be sophisticated songs like For No One.

Oh please, who the heck knows about For No One besides people who REALLY know the Beatles?

Your ignorance of Let It Be and Yesterday is astounding.  Nothing special? Ignorant statement.
