    Battle of the Beatles Songs II - New for 2011

    Pasag suggested this and I think it would be a great idea.

    Anyone wanna run it?

    I don't mind doing it actually, I reckon I can make a better fist of it than I did Battle of the Test matches. But I wouldn't mind someone else helping out in case I'm not online for a while.

    So, I propose, 64 songs. Usual rules, nominate then second

    Has definite potential this. To paraphrase butch Oscar "he who is tired of The Beatles is tired of life or a bearded music snob who always wears a suit."

    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    The only problem is that Yellow Submarine was a Lennon-McCartney composition
