Bad book week has passed and not a moment too soon. Back to recommendations with this book that breaks down the Beatles' albums song by song listing which Beatle wrote what song (Song Title-- Lennon 50%, McCartney 45%, Harrison 5%)(I would give a real example, but I've already packed the book). There are also notes about the circumstances that each song was written under. The author used tons of interviews as his sources and even though there are several books like this for the Beatles, to me this one seems to be the most informative. And does anyone else think it's just a tiny bit creepy that that on the song "Piggies" (on the White Album) George Harrison's mother wrote the line "What they need is a damn good whacking"?
