    I'd Have You Anytime was on my list and I would have taken it had Let It Down been swiped from me.

    The Wings song that was a travesty to go undrafted was Listen to What the Man Said. Hell, it was a travesty that Jet lasted to me late in the 12th.

    The Foot ranks 'em!

    I simply went down the rosters assigning a 1-10 ranking to each song. And the winner is...

    1. ElDiablo- 115
    Impressive overall, with three 10s - Hey Jude, Eleanor Rigby, Imagine
    Worst pick: Only one less than a 6 was Lovely Rita.

    2. Lucky - 108
    Great job on the solo stuff, big props for things like Old Brown Shoe and Mother Nature's Son, lots of 8s.
    Worst pick: Paperback Writer too high at #15.

    3. Erik - 105
    All solid picks, points for George's Let It Down, and Martha My Dear's a 9 in my book.
    Worst pick: Strange to see I Want You (She's So Heavy) at #18

    4. DMT - 99
    Three 10s with In My Life, Penny Lane and A Day In The Life, two 9s with I Should Have Known Better and Please Please Me, but some letdown picks in the later rounds.
    Worst pick: Love You To does not belong in this draft.

    5. Johnny - 97
    A few personal faves (Jealous Guy, I'm Only Sleeping) and Something & Yesterday are 10s, but hurt by me not being a fan of Norwegian Wood and Across The Universe.
    Worst pick: I know it was 15th round, but Starting Over gets an ugh. And From Me To You is a solid meh.

    6. Revo - 93
    Major props for George's Give Me Love, big fan of a bunch of songs like Your Mother Should Know and Mean Mr. Mustard, but a very bad end of the draft.
    Worst pick: Taking The No No Song over Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five is just bananas.

    7. Sheep - 92
    Helter Skelter's the only 10, Strawberry Fields the only 9, 8s for While My Guitar Gently Weeps and YES, Uncle Albert.
    Worst pick: I always found You Won't See Me to be lame. I remember the Anne Murray version in the 70s.

    8. The Gaffer- 91
    Love Savoy Truffle in the 5th round, big points for You're Gonna Lose That Girl and Here Comes The Sun, My Sweet Lord's a classic, but a real tail-off in the second half.
    Worst pick: End Of The Line, no way no how.

    9. Swampdragon - 88
    The steal of the draft in She Loves You at #82, Blackbird and Live And Let Die get the thumb's up, but some head-scratchers in there.
    Worst pick: What's That You're Doing... good God Swampy, I mean, really, Jesus Christ, wtf.

    10. Mith - 83
    Sorry Mith, you had a couple of greats with I Want To Hold Your Hand and I Feel Fine... but a whole lot of 5s and 6s and 7s after that.
    Worst pick: You really didn't have a bad one, but I would never pick Maxwell or Think For Yourself.

    fair enough - it was a crappy pick - I kind of lost interest towards the end

    but on the good side - I spent the week listening to Beatles music on youtube and discovered that there a lot of good stuff out there

    Not shocked. My musical tastes almost NEVER align with any of you guys. The guys here seem to have an aversion to light, pop music that is just made to be fun.

    The bass in "Think For Yourself" is sweet. And I love the lyrics. "Maxwell" is obviously a like/hate song, and I think it is full of great melodies and sounds.

    And THANKS FOOT!!!

    The "Double Fantasy" album John Lennon signed for Mark David Chapman hours before Chapman assassinated him on December 8, 1980 is up for auction again.

    The album has already been sold twice in the past -- for $150k in 1999, and between $600-800k in 2010. It will be auctioned off on Monday at Goldin Auctions ... which expects it to go for as much as $2 million.
