On New Years Eve, I attended a party and ended up in the basement with thirteen year-olds. The cellar consensus was that the Beatles are the best pop/rock group ever; of course, this made the conversation more interesting than anything upstairs, and refuted the coincident media firestorm about how young people today (Kayne West fans in particular) have no idea who Paul McCartney might be. And so, for my new teenaged friends, my favorite Beatles tracks.
