An impossible task? Maybe. But, this is an awful series of choices. I read enough to see that the author was born AFTER the Beatles broke up, which means he lacks a certain perspective. It shows in his list.

Oooooh that comment was a little harsh Willard, this was a personal list, from Jbev's own perspective.
That does mean that this list has no meaning or importance to any other person, but it was important to him. I was born before the Beatles were formed, but if I were to draw up my own list, it would be just as relevant as Jbev's and that is why I have no intention of doing one.

Say what you want, but the fact is that everytime we try to propose this list it never slips away in silence... and this must be recognized to JBev's bravery...

Just because there's nothing you can do that can't be done, doesn't mean you have to do it !

I think this list is meaningless. I can come up with my own list, but who even cares? Fact is, everybody has their own tastes and opinions. In this case, I think it would've been preferable had the author kept his opinions and critiques to himself... Just my opinion.

In OOO... if this list is meaningless, why so many people feels the need to say it is?

Because they are right ?

DO YOU REALLY THINK SOMEONE HERE IS RIGHT AND SOMEONE IS WRONG? ARE WE IN A COURT? IS THIS WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE SINCE ONE YEAR? DECIDING WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG? OHH, WHAT A FOOL WE HAVE BEEN IN WORKING SO HARD...
SEE YOU IN ONE MONTH AS A MINIMUM... AND TAKE YOUR TIME TO THINK...

There IS no right or wrong. And, for the record, I NEVER said this guy's list was meaningless or irrelevant. Obviously it is to him or he wouldn't have gone to so much trouble. Like I said, I think his choices lack a "certain perspective." Of course... that's no reflection on this site's great collection of materials.
