    Title says it all. Mine are in no particular order, except for number 1:

    1. Something (more of a bass solo, but definitely a work of art)
    2. With a little help
    3. Hey Bulldog
    4. She came in through the bathroom window
    5. Silly Love Songs - if you're snickering, go listen to it! Killer groove!

    Something is just a killer tune all around.... but yeah, a great line

    I've always been partial to the bass line in "I Want You"

    I'm gonna pop this over to recordings... I think it fits better there.

    ...I love that tune, too; I guess they captured what a LSD trip might sound like.

    Nope, according to Anthology (the book) that was Lennon on all guitars and lead vox, McCartney on bass, drums, backing vox, and piano.

    -Something (all around awesome song)
    -Day in the Life
    -With A Little Help From My Friends
    -Happiness is a Warm Gun
    -Maxwell's Silver Hammer

    BTW, is Paul on a fretless on "Long and Winding Road"? I'm not sure, but I think I can kinda hear that fretless slide sound on the "Naked" version.
