So far, from all the spinoffs I've seen, it's Beatles 100%. No wonder we all get along.

Eric Wilde said...

I love the Stones; but, its no match against the Beatles.

Tracy said...

No, there's one weirdo who put the Stones. I can't recall now who it was...

But here's mine and I did, indeed, pick the Beatles.
