I remember reading that Beatles list three years ago and thinking that it was one of the most abhorrent things I'd ever laid eyes on. I can't for the life of me recall why that was, but I certainly don't wish to rediscover it. She's Leaving Home didn't make the top 200. That'd piss me off, at least.
