Here are 4 fab songs. All are good in some way or another. In your personal opinion, which of the 4 songs is the most fab?

A) The Rutles: "Eine Kleine Middle Klasse Musik"

B) Julian Lennon: Too Late For Goodbyes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQs1Ynq0rlk
C) Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians: You Think You're In Love
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIlly8tCuVQ
D)The Beatles Free As a Bird:

Personally I like all 4. I think "So You Think You're In Love" is the best song followed by Eine Kleine Middle Klasse Musik. The other 2 are better records than songs (by which I mean the cleverness of the producer/arranger has made them sound better than they really are.
But, what say you? Which of the 4 tracks has the most magic and brought you the most happiness?

I always thought that The Beatles 'Free as a Bird' and 'Real Love' projects were something which should have been left undone. I didn't see any point in them whatsoever. The results were pretty piss poor. The video for Free as a Bird was clever though.

There's a demo of Real Love which is Lennon and guitar and another version with Lennon and piano both of which are lovely and far better than the Beatles version.
I think they did what they did because of the publicity they knew they'd get if they said it was a new Beatles single.
It must have felt strange for Paul, George and Ringo trying to sound like Paul, George and Ringo.

Best/favourite - Julien Lennon "Too late for goodbyes" is it almost Ska?

Harry why did you put those 4 together? Happiness and magic are something to pursue for sure : )
