I'll bet that we would have been treated to more tunes like "Something" which Frank Sinatra called "the greatest love song of the past 50 years". Unfortunately I think that having that much musical genius crammed into one band created so much synergy that it resembled a positive feedback loop and . . .

Apparently Curiosity gets a wake up song each morning and on Sol day two it was "Good Morning Good Morning" and on Sol day 3 it was "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band"

It truly is amazing when you think about the shear quantity of their work and just how good it all was. I always wonder what would have happened if Paul and John had let George write a few more...

"I am sure I have listened to Wings Over America more than Steve" I'm equally sure that you haven't (grin)

Max, you're asking the impossible. Name a favorite Beatles tune? Can't be done. I can't think of a Beatles tune that I _don't_ like. But . . . Abbey Road is in my list of top three albums/CDs of all time and hands down my favorite Beatles collection. Every time I listen to Abbey Road, I find myself wanting more. The Fab Four definitely called it quits while they were at the top of their game. Always makes me wonder if they could have kept up their unbelievable growth of musical creativity had they stayed together. (Loved the sonic screwdriver reference . . . !)

lol David, I had to conjecture a few stepping stones for that agile leap! I also like Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey--great song! I knew a guy that sang it in karaoke. I can't remember if he could nail the high part or not. There are definitely some vocal gymnastics there.

Not a Beatles song but one of Sir Paul's best in my 'umble opinion: Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey off "Ram" - one of the two LPs he put out between Beatles and Wings periods. Such a quirky song, I love it. It was no 1 in the US, but not in the UK (maybe the Brits had not forgiven the Beatles for breaking up?) You never hear it these days (unless you come to my place....) Oh, and SeaEE, has Max ever needed a connection between two topics to "leap between them with the agility of a mountain goat?"

Curiosity's landing was magnificent. I'm curious how long its mission will last. Since it has nuclear power, could it outlast its planned mission by quite awhile, and cover a wider geographical area? With regards to Sir Paul McCartney, I think I would vie with Steve for being one of his biggest fans. I am sure I have listened to Wings Over America (his best recording, and live to boot) more than Steve. I would bet a beer on it. In fact I have it both on vinyl and on a 2 cd set. But what does Sir Paul have to do with the Curiosity? Ahh...Sir Paul wrote the great song Venus and Mars (which is even greater when played in the Venus and Mar/Rock Show/Jet medley on Wings Over America), and one of my favorite songs of his, Magneto and Titanium Man has kind of a spacey superhero aspect to it. I think the next misson to Mars should beam back Paul McCartney singing Venus and Mars.

By a strange coincidence Max I found the full length Beatles movie "Help!" on you Tube and am currently watching it. I have the two Beatles collections 62-66 and 67-70 and other LPs, and played them incessantly when I was younger. And I still couldn't tell you what my favourite Beatles song is - there's just so much good stuff. I've never been much into dancing so at parties in my schooldays I used to organise the music. Whenever I put "Hard Day's Night" on, everyone would be dancing. It's hard to get past that as a definitive early Beatles best. But there are many many others that I personally prefer.
