    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Paperback Writer pretty comfortably in the first. Really think it's one of the best things Paul ever did.

    Helter Skelter in the second, which I could equally say the same about. Love the heavy, almost metal (altho doubt "metal" had actually been even named as such back then) guitars. A shame it's forever lumbered in with Charlie Manson. Don't mind Piggies being similarly tarred tho, 'cos it reeks.

    Hello Goodbye, because noone liked my Paperback Raita joke last round.
    Revolution (the single version) - although I swear we've already had this round.

    Hello Goodbye, probably my first favourite Beatle song from way back. Still enjoy it every time. And Helter Skelter, shows the greatness of a man who can write Yesterday/ Blackbird etc and then this.

    Hello Goodbye, I must say I like both these songs but I place them lower down in Beatles lists than most. I guess that's what happens when a band does so many great songs.

    Helter Skelter - the b-side version of Revolution would have pushed it a little closer, but Helter Skelter is fantastic, and really, as has already been said, shows the diversity of McCartney. Also been covered and not ruined by two of my fave bands

    I guess U2 is one, but the other....?

    Just curious.

    EDIT: Actually think Oasis might've covered it now I think about it.

    I didn't know U2 had done it

    oasis did as a b-side to Who feels Love, and there's also a live version on the original double album of Familiar to Millions. Having said that, the b-side itself may be live.

    Motley Crue covered it on Shout at the Devil in 83, and played it the first time I saw them live.

    Yeah, kicks off Rattle And Hum. Bongo introduces it with "This is a song Charles Manson stole from The Beatles, we're stealing it back". Which I thought was very cool as a teenager. Prob better than Oasis's version for mine.

    Not familiar with Motley Crue's, er, effort so I'll have to take your word for it.

    LOL. It's pretty sttraightforward really, bit more of a glam-metal groove about it obviously, and Vince's vocal, but they do do it justice. The Oasis version is not one of the better covers they have done (I Am the Walrus probably stands out) but I do like it. Would have been better if Liam had sang though, obv.

    YouTube indeed: Motley Crue's Helter Skelter

    And for good measure, Oasis
