 Hey Jude was the best #1, but A Day in the Life is my favorite Beatles track.

One of Lennon's guitars went for £1.6 m this weekend. Who has that kind of money?

Wow!!

I think any song by Lennon is hard to beat. This is one of his best

 A Day in the Life is one of the few proper joint compositions.  May well have been the last.

 I'd place Bob Dylan well over Lennon any day, but that's just my taste.I like lots of the Beatles songs, particularly the more psychedelic ones and there are lots of great album tracks.

They only got any good after Revolver when they started dabbling in acid. That's when the music got a lot more weird and interesting.

Rubber Soul was their first "influenced" LP.   Definitely their first decent LP and for me, only Abbey Road tops it.  Norwegian Wood and In My Life were standouts, yet neither was a single.

Rubber Soul was the pot album and Revolver was the acid, - Lennon

Lennon v Dylan? No contest, Lennon every time. I don't rate McCartney solo, sleep is more interesting.

Pah!  Wings were the band the Beatles could have been.

Even though he has his faults, Paul McCartney is one of the greatest musicians ever.  The psychedelic sound of the Beatles was mostly down to him.

George Harrison and John Lennon were legends as solo artists.

 Mmmm, I wouldn't agree with that.   None of the Beatles were much cop after 1970.  Some brilliant moments (Imagine, My Sweet Lord, Live & Let Die, Thomas the Tank Engine ), but there's not one of their LPs that I would ever play.

Thomas the Tank Engine truly a career high, I think we can all agree.

As for Imagine, though, I defer to John Cooper Clarke, who put it best: I regret ever hearing it in the first place. Its nausea-inducing. The shallow sentimentality of it is ghastly. When I heard that, I thought, Maybe hes just never been any good. John is one of the great voices, so its tragic that he should put his name to such drivel. The fact that its Britains Number One song is suicide-inducing."

mmm, Lennon is guilty of making kids songs and nursery rhymes (All You Need is Love comes immediately to mind, and he a fair amount of input on Yellow Submarine), and his happy clapping preaching can grate, but Imagine is a piece of understated brilliance. He debunks religion, nationalism and dreams of a better world and does it without resorting to the football chants he had been previously making (Power to the People and Give Peace a Chance). The song is creative in a way that harks back to Rubber Soul.  

Not sure where the fact it is Britain's number one song comes from, but as far as I know it hasn't been once been cited as a cause of suicide in the last forty five years.  Of course, I couldn't possibly know.

It's always felt a bit trite to me, but it's possible I've been traumatised by some hippy primary school teacher dressing a group of 10 year olds in white boiler suits and forcing us to sing the thing to the rest of the school, that being the first time I came across it...

IT frequently is voted as no 1 all time favourite songs on a variety of radio programmes. Usually a battle between that and the other obvious one by Queen, BH. Woman features fairly highly too. No idea about suicide inducing, more utopian than depressing.

Or err Angels by Robbie Williams...

... somehow I have half a dozen of his songs in google play including Angels (acoustic, though it sounds just as sh!t) and a version of Lola which is as pi$$ poor as you could possibly imagine.  That's the naffest song I own.

Angels was a flop on first release. Then it was rereleased and the world went crazy for it.

 Did it? Not in my world!

Looking at http://www.officialcharts.com/artist/1849/robbie-williams/ it seems to just went straight into the top ten and stayed there a bit. Probably a karaoke classic.

Exactly, instant hit, hanging around for a while and getting votes as best song ever. Your world or not .

You wrote it was a flop on initial release.  Looks pretty successful to me.

I had a junk filter for toy boy bands and the like. XFM!  If I was asked to name the hits of Take That, Westlife, Boyzone and 1D,  I would struggle to name that many of their hits that weren't covers  (Back for Good, Pray, Let It Shine, No Matter What).   I can't name a single Taylor Swift song who apparently is the biggest artist in the world right now.  Though, I can name two Beyonce and Rhianna songs.    Robbie Williams is in a similar vein.  Angels, Let Me Entertain You (where he rips off Queen), Millenium (the Bond reject) and errr Lola!     

I did check the official chart site and I saw 1D had a #1 this year with Drag Me Down.  It isn't is it?

It was released earlier and got nowhere, apparently.
