Brooke, if you want some recommendations, just ask. There isn't a day goes by that I don't think about this band & how much pleasure they have given me & millions of others. I have a thing about Good Morning, Good Morning from Sgt Pepper at the moment. It sums up London in the late 60s. Also The Night Before from Help! which is a great pop song.

Fantastic. I can't wait to hear what your favourite tracks will be. Revolver is the greatest album of all time, by anybody, in my opinion.

In Joe's forum, we've been discussing the Grammy's Salute to The Beatles show which aired last night on the 50th anniversary of their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. However, I thought I would make some general comments about the show as well.

I thought the show was very entertaining and most all of the performances were very inspiring. Other than Joe, Ringo, and Paul, my favorite performances were Alicia Keys and John Legend's rendition of Let It Be, Keith Urban and John Mayer performing Don't Let Me Down, and Ed Sheeran's (whom I'd never even heard of before) rendition of In My Life.

My only disappointments were that Julian Lennon was a no-show and that Sean Lennon didn't take the stage.

A kindred sprit! What are your favourite tracks? If I had to just give five, they are:

Eleanor Rigby
Taxman
And Your Bird Can Sing
For No-One
Tomorrow Never Knows

and leaving the rest of it out is very hard.
