Funny this. I've considered myself a bigger Paul fan over the years, but only a quick look at the discography and it becomes fairly apparent, to me at least, that it has to be John. To name but a few:

A Hard Day's Night
If I Fell
No Reply
I'm a Loser
Eight Days a Week
Help!
In My Life
I'm Only Sleeping
And Your Bird Can Sing
Strawberry Fields
I Am The Walrus
A Day In The Life
Come Together

I could go on!

Uh this is slightly short of IMPOSSIBLE!!!
I'd say Paul, but then I think of one of John's, like I Am The Walrus or George's While My Guitar Gently Weeps...
Sorry, just can't do it

I'm going for the easy answer: Ringo!

I can't vote because when I listen to their music my preferences changes from time to time.  A few months ago I was heavily into songs like I am the warlus, Strawberry fields, Here comes the sun & Lucy in the sky, but right now I'm listening again to their earlier stuff.  But basically there are songs that I've always liked despite my mood.

In the last months these were the songs I listened a lot:

John's songs: Strawberry fields forever, I am the warlus, Tomorrow never knows, A hard day's night, And your bird can sing, Help!, Norwegian Wood
Paul: Got to get you into my life, Can't buy me love, Get back, Let it be, Hey Jude
George: Something, Here comes the sun, Taxman
Ringo: Octopus' garden

I remember there was a time when one of the songs I listened a lot were Lovely Rita and Fixing a hole.

Ringo's songs? Wha?? That would take about five minutes and you'd be done. Then what would you do with the rest of your life?

oh no typical me I misread the question- thought it was about which Beatle's post-Beatle solo stuff you would most like to listen to only. Oooops  :B

So I said George (an answer to the wrong question) because my enthusiasm for the whole album 'All Things Must Pass' just surfaced  

But I should have said John (my answer to the question I was supposed to be answering) mainly because (though I love George's songs) John has obviously done far more in the Beatles than George. And I have always just about preferred John's overall songs to Paul's. Not by loads, but enough to make John my vote. (Gems like Strawberry Fields, Come Together, Day in the Life, Walrus, And Your Bird Can Sing, Norwegian Wood, I'm Only Sleeping etc. are just so varied and unique and I love them) Poor Ringo loses out on this one- not many songs to choose from for him, bless him. Glad to see him included on the poll though- I have known polls to just not include Ringo at all- outrageous I say!

(sorry for voting wrong- if it can be changed then can someone please do it? If not my George will do me fine- because I feel his quality of songs is often as good as John's and it is really only the fact that he did far fewer overall than John which makes him lose my vote)

Play the soundtrack from Caveman?  ;D

Seriously, I had to pick George, because I wouldn't be a Beatles fan if not for him. It's funny how a different writer will resonate with different people. This was definitely the strength of the Beatles-- that they had such diverse styles that they could appeal to a wide variety of people. And if you wanted a change, look no further-- you could find it right in the same band!

But this is an easy answer for me because I only got into the Beatles recently. I just had to look at what music I felt I had to buy first, and it was George's songs that swung my vote in my album selections. I like some of John's and Paul's tunes very much, but I am really drawn to George's style.

ive always been a paul fan but its true how one song can mean the world to one person but could be throwaway to another person and having 3 great songwriters in the same band writing about different things makes sure someone will identify with at least a fe wof there songs,

was watching the beatles gig in the budokan and i never really noticed but george is a really nice guy even on stage hes constantly waving to the fans acknowledging that they are there, hes just slid in to second in my fave beatle :)

There may have been an ulterior motive. George openly admits that he would wave at the audience to encourage screaming to hide bits of songs they knew would sound sh*t - most famously the Beach Boys vocal bits on Paperback Writer, but I'm sure there were others.

yeah i actually saw that wrote on another thread so i tried to pay attention to when he was waving what was goin on the track there were a few times it seemed he may be hiding a fluffed vocal or guitar part but on a whole it seemed very nice and polite he did it at times where he wasnt singing or even playing anything during verses waiting to come back in, just seemed nice and fresh to see he would wave to the audience during the songs to acknowledge them being there rather than bands nowadays hammering through there set with as little to say as possible and a thanks at the end of the set

Could be. Though he would do it before the offending piece, because he knew when the fluffs were coming. I've only seen him do it on Anthology on Paperback Writer and he isn't playing or singing when he smiles and waves then moves over to take part in the around-the-mike chorus.
Just struck me how forgiving we are of them for doing this. We would probably crucify any other act admitting to doing this.
