Does this list even have criteria? It's not even consistent with the other songs lists! For example: A Day In The Life is at #7 and Hey Jude is at #23, but at the top 10 songs by Popular artists list collection, Hey Jude > A Day In The Life. I'm confused.
I say we start from scratch. Stairway stays at #1, though.
I don't think there's any need to scrap the list, but we can certainly discuss changes. The last time we revised the Beatles list, I made the argument that the top song should be a hit single because the Beatles were so big on the singles charts, and ADITL was somewhat represented by having Pepper atop their albums list, and I think that argument found some favor. Should that also apply to the songs' placing on the overall songs list? Interesting question.
Which gets back to the fact that as objective as we try to make things, ultimately different editors are going to draw different conclusions. It's the nature of the beast. I personally wouldn't rank ADITL as the highest-ranking Beatles song, but there's certainly a good case to be made--and I personally would rather have some contradictions among the different lists than to have one person exercise control over everything (or to have, say, a majority vote over everything), but I understand why some people feel differently about that, too.
