    The above are in no particular order except the last one. I have never been a Beatles fan, in fact I think I prefer Matt Munro (just). Paul MacCartney's performance at the close of the Olympic opening was pathetic in the extreme.

    Dammit Cedars. You can't do that. If we open it up to Ireland.....where do we end it?

    And now I'm going to have to throw in a new wrinkle (since I am a child of the 80's) - Def Leppard
