McCartney claims the below songs were collaborations. 50/50 more or less! They are quite big Lennon songs, which he is claiming a lot of credit on. Maybe this is perfectly justified also. I am sure there are more examples!

In My Life
Norwegian Wood
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds ( not sure of the percentage on Lucy)
If I fell ( not sure of percentage buts says co-witten )
The Benefit Of Mr Kite

Should we add the above to McCartneys huge catolog of hits if they are as much his as Lennons ? Not really as he also classes them as Lennon/Beatle songs otherwise he would sing them live - still they are big claims on some of Lennons best works from various 'Beatle periods!'......Even on songs like "Help" another 'big' Lennon song he claims something like 30%!!! Quite a few like that :wink: I'm not saying he is claiming too much credit just pointing out some interesting insights.

They were both envious of each other! That's why they spurred each other on to write such masterpieces!

I reckon Lennon would have loved to have had a hand in Helter Skelter!!!!
