This is really, really hard, I grew up with the Beatles more so than the Stones and have probably only just in later life found myself appreciating the Stones.......I think I know more of the Beatles stuff, man this is hard, but I love the Stones, their image, Keef, Jagger, they are very cool, but then there is the Beatles,,,,,,,,,,,hhhhmmmm I DONT KNOW!!!!!!!!!CANT DO IT>>>>>>>>>>>

anyway fave 'obscure' songs from each...

Beatles= Being for the benefit of Mr Kite, from Sgt Peppers

Stones= 2000 light years from home, from Their Satanic Majesties Request

Beatles! I mean...who can't love that plasticine porter guy?

I would have to go with The Beatles. I guess their songs have touched me more. Also I would rather meet a Beatle than a Rolling Stone. They seem friendlier !

But you could have a U2 discussion with Mick Jagger, George Harrison just thinks their pretentious crap.

The Beatles, in a no-brainer. THE most original and influential band of all time. I agree with Brettig that the Stones hurt their legacy by hanging around too long.

Just George Harrison, though...who knows what Ringo and Paul think. Charlie Watts, the Stones drummer, thinks rock music is rubbish anyways, so he's probably not a big U2 fan either.

I know little of the music of either of those bands, but I'll say Beatles because I generally tend to like their music better.

For some odd reason, I don't think Jagger would be interested in conversing with me...I think he would rather do something else !!!

He's a manwhore !!!

The Stones b/c they are my favorite band ever next to u2. Yes there is room at the tip of my heart for more than 1 band. I own just as much Stones records as U2 records and can sing along with every tune they've ever written from a to z. And thats not just words but also music sounds.
