A derivative of X is Tentaizu (puzzle) with an unique solution all the time. In 2001, the Italian "International Campaign to Ban Win___" voiced strong concern over X, contending that it is an "offense against the victims of the _____" and those who risk their lives to clear them.

  • 312. 6. X was released as a single on 6 October 1969 in the US and 31 October 1969 in the UK. Rolling Stone ranked X at #202 on their list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time” and #9 on their list of The Beatles' 100 Greatest Songs. This classic with a deep bluesy style was unlike any other song of its time in that it was constructed entirely of verses/refrains. There is no chorus and only one short guitar solo, acting as a bridge to interrupt the radical song structure. X was the only Beatles' tune Lennon sang during his 1972 Madison Square Garden concert. Notable covers of X include those by Diana Ross, Eurhythmics, Joe Cocker, Tom Jones and Meat Loaf. Id X. A quiz by Apratim Mukhopadhyay
