The Beatles ‘Revolver encabeza la lista de mejores álbumes del Vaticano

Pope Benedict XVI’s top rock album is The Beatles’ Revolver, according to the Vatican’s official newspaper. L’Osservatore Romano has published a list of the albums it considers the best of all time. It describes the list as “A little handbook of musical resistance could be useful during this time of the year in which, in addition to having put up with the rigours of winter, we have to endure a rising tide of musical festivals.”The Catholic newspaper’s chart also included Oasis, U2, Pink Floyd and Michael Jackson. The list, compiled by Giuseppe Fiorentino and Gaetano Vallini, contains the following:The Beatles: RevolverDavid Crosby: If I Could Only Remember My NamePink Floyd: Dark Side Of The MoonFleetwood Mac: RumoursDonald Fagen: The NightflyMichael Jackson: ThrillerPaul Simon: GracelandU2: Achtung BabyOasis: (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?Carlos Santana: SupernaturalThe albums on the list may seem somewhat less than holy, given the inclusion of such drug-meddlers as Fleetwood Mac, Oasis, David Crosby and The Beatles. Nonetheless, the less-than-holy Beatles Bible would like to give kudos to L’Osservatore Romano for a surprisingly well-informed list.In November 2008 L’Osservatore Romano famously forgave John Lennon for his 1966 remark that The Beatles were more popular than Jesus.
