4. Definitely Lennon.
He wrote and sang the lead on it. This page says that it was cowritten by Derek Taylor.

6. Now THAT was McCartney.
He wrote an amazing bass part for that.

12. Now THERE's a song with more cowbell!
EGSTH(CMAMM), Hey Bulldog and Helter Skelter showed the Beatles could rock with the best.

13. Hey Bulldog is one of my all time favorite songs.
Something about it just makes me happy any time I hear it.

8. I really can't choose.
Dear Prudence, Happiness is a Warm Gun, Glass Onion, Cry Baby Cry, and Revolution are all great in my opinion. I don't know why people say that he didn't contribute much to this album. To me it seems he was just going through the type of experimental stage that Harrison went through. He was writing great music, it was just different from what he had been doing.

9. What, no Revolution 9?
I chose "I'm So Tired," which I often sing to myself late at night. But I like all of his songs on this album.

14. I like the one when you play Revolution 9 backwards
I think it's called "Turn Me On Dead Man". LOL
