My latest Naked Skeptic column is up at the CSI site.Â It’s about John Lennon’s claim that The Beatles were “more popular than Jesus”.
Beatlemania has reared its head again this week, with the release of the remastered catalog and The Beatles: Rock Band.
A few years ago I visited Liverpool. Standing outside Strawberry Fields I had the strange experience of being interviewed by a Japanese TV host. Asked to name my favorite Beatles’ song, and I answered “Penny Lane“. I love the charmingly nostalgic yet dirty lyrics (“fish and finger pie”) and the pretty piccolo trumpet pieces.
What’s your favorite Beatles’ song?
