Or there's the oft-told story of Frank Sinatra introducing "Something" as the greatest song Lennon and McCartney ever wrote.

Of course objective greatness and ranking 1,2,3 in the arts is dodgy, but assuming one believes it can or must be done, being the third-best songwriter and lead singer in the Beatles allows for some considerable achievement doesn't it.

In my youth, when who's your favorite Beatle was a thing, I admired John because he was "the writer" with his In His Own Write book, but also George because he was the youngest and just a bit too overlooked (Ringo probably came in above George in the "favorite Beatle hit parade.")
