Eleanor Rigby

I saw a puff piece a few years ago that was nevertheless right on the money in one regard. It started with something like "there are famous musicians like U2 and Bruce Springsteen and David Bowie. There are really famous musicians like Madonna and the Rolling Stones. And then there's Paul McCartney." 

That was fame. Then there's accomplishments. And even if he kinda mugs a bit in this performance, still, at the end of the day, who else could have written this song, and sang it quite this way? (Even if John Lennon really did write most of the lyrics.)
