Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club (Worship) Band

* She Came In Through The (Stained Glass) Window
* Come (Let Us Worship) Together
* Hey Jud(as)
* Lucy In The Sky with (The Raptured)

So, as it turns out, John Lennon wasn't trying to piss off Christians when he claimed that The Beatles were "bigger than Jesus." According to a story titled 'Bigger than Jesus? The Beatles were a Christian band' in Britain's Telegraph newspaper, The point he was trying to make was:

"It's just an expression meaning the Beatles seem to me to have more influence over youth than Christ," he says. "Now I wasn't saying that was a good idea, 'cos I'm one of Christ's biggest fans. And if I can turn the focus on the Beatles on to Christ's message, then that's what we're here to do."
