The Top Ten
Clever ploy by whoever put this list together, to "split" the Lennon-McCartney votes. This allows someone much less deserving to possibly be at the #1 spot, although either John or Paul should be at the top regardless. It is nice that George Harrison is at least recognized by the list though. Simply put; Lennon-McCartney songs have outsold and out-charted everybody else on this list COMBINED. Paul McCartney himself is the most successful musician of all time, period.
Across The Universe, Rain, Strawberry fields, Walrus, Dear Prudence, Sexy Sadie, Revolution, If I Fell, Your Bird Can sing, This Boy, Lucy In The Skies, A Day In The Life, You're Gonna Lose that Girl, Imagine, All You Need Is Love. He is number one in every sense of the word!
It appears that the vote-splitting is exactly what has happened, but if you combine Lennon/McCartney's percentages they become #1.
Freddie Mercury should in no way, shape, or form, be anywhere near the top ten of this list, though the list itself is poorly done.
Why would anyone split up Jagger/Richards, and where are Holland/Dozier/Holland?
He is arguably the greatest musician of all time, and wrote as many great songs as the dang beatles.
Paul has written over 100 great hits. Nobody can equal him in this respect.
Freddie was an amazing song writer, equal with John Lennon, and much better, than Paul McCartney. Paul McCartney couldn't write never ever a masterpiece like Bohemian Rhapsody.
Freddie's lifetime songwriting output does not equal one good year of Paul McCartney's.
Why don't you take a photo of him?
