The Twelve British Beatles Albums & How many Lennon & McCartney songs they featured

Please, Please Me – 8 from 14 tracks
With The Beatles – 7 from 14 tracks (1 George Harrison)
A Hard Days Night – all 13 tracks
Beatles For Sale – 8 out of 14 tracks
Help – 10 from 14 tracks (2 George Harrison)
Rubber Soul – 12 from 14 tracks (2 George Harrison)
Revolver – 11 from 14 tracks (3 George Harrison)
SGT. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – 12 from 13 tracks (1 George Harrison)
The Beatles – 25 from 30 tracks (4 George Harrison & 1 Ringo Starr)
Yellow Submarine – 5 from 13 tracks (2 George Harrison & 6 George Martin)
Abbey Road – 14 from 17 tracks (2 George Harrison & 1 Ringo Starr)
Let It Be – 8 from 12 tracks (2 George Harrison & 1 Harrison/Lennon/McCartney/Starr)

In a couple of days I'll list the twenty one songs that weren't composed by any of the Beatles. Before anyone gets picky I'm counting the six George Martin tracks on 'Yellow Submarine' as having been composed by the 5th Beatle!

This looks like fun. When you finish, a take on Rolling Stones material would be good. On a side note, how many songs that Frank Sinatra sang did he also write?

Shouldn't really count Yellow Submarine as an 'official' release, even though Apple seems to have done so posthumously!
