I am the walrus


It can sound stranger, but I am not the walrus is not one of the best songs from the beatles. Noel Gallagher made a fantastic version, easier to be easier than the beatles´version.

I love this song!!! It was by liam that i first heard it sung. i thought it was written by noel but it turned out to be john lennon. i didn't feel surprised, because for me, the beatles represents all the best music.

This is funny. Not sure how one gets here. Please stop with the nonsense of which band is better. The Beatles are in their own league, period. You wankers haven't a clue. It all starts and ends with the Beatles, then you can figure it out from there.

For those that voted for Oasis and therefore believe that Oasis actually has an ounce of talent, please go play in traffic, since you are stopping the forward progress of humanity.

Beatles all the way!
No Beatles = No Oasis
Just some facts for you:
I Want To Hold Your Hand was placed 4th in the top ten selling singles chart of all time.
Oasis never entered that chart.
Oasis' Wonderwall - No of Sales = 966,940
The Beatles' She Loves You - No of Sales = 1,890,000+
Albums:
Oasis'(What's The Story) Morning Glory - Total Sales 4,300,000
The Beatle's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Total Sales = 4,800,000
Beatle's Total Weeks At Number One = 175
A clear record, no-one else has ever come near the total.

So, if anyone says that Oasis accomplished more than the Beatles must be insane! And the Beatles are better.

Ha ha I like it 'Liam'. Why the fuck does Patrick have vomit in a plastic bag anyway? U must have great parents. Or have u eaten them? Sicko.

blimey there are some strange people out there! patrick is clearly a pyscho mass murderer and should be sectioned! Georgina may have had her facts wrong, and I disagree about her choice but ur response was harsh, weirdo.

The Beatles by 39348 million miles. Oasis were good for about 2 albums and then it all got very very dull. Go buy the Hard Days Night album and listen to it. It pisses over anything by that Beatles tribute band called Oasis.
