Best Beatles Song / Favorite Beatles Song
 
Which do you think are the best Beatles song (subjective criteria of course) and your favorite Beatles song? I know that for many, these questions are just about impossible to answer, but give it a shot anyhow.

Astonishingly, The Beatles seem to transcend every generation. Just about everyone "discovers" The Beatles at one point in their life. I was in 8th gradewhen I discovered The Beatles and heard Helter Skelter for the first time at a friends house. I couldnt believe that it was a Beatles song and that it was written in the mid 60's. It sounded edgier than much of the rock music that I was into.

I think that the best Beatles song (if I had to pick one) is "A Day In the Life"

My favorite Beatles song (if I had to pick one): "Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey"

Blackbird is one I enjoy.

"Hey Jude"

Only because it reminds me of someone and fun drunken nights.

"Let it Be" is a philosophy by which I live. The melody is simple, but memorable, and the message is important for people. When something truly does not matter in the grand scheme of things, let it be. Don't dwell over what you can't control.

I know that's really a Paul McCartney song, so my favorite BEATLES song would be "I Saw Her Standing There". It's just a fun song...

"The Long and Winding Road"

And George's solo in Let it be is freaking sweet

Wow so many I will pick one no one has yet.

Dr Robert- Revolver

It has sort of a corny bridge but of course Beatles could always pull that off couldn't they.

I love the harmonies on the top end of the verses.

That's The Band, unless the Beatles did it also and I'm not aware, or there is a Beatles song named the same that I don't know. That is possible not trying to submarine you just wondering what song you are speaking of.

Carry That Weight ('The Weight' is a great song by The Band), and I agree ... the medley on Side 2 of Abbey Road:

You Never Give Me Your Money, into
Mean Mister Mustard, into
Polythene Pam,
She Came in Through the Bathroom Window,
Golden Slumbers,
Carry That Weight and finally
The End.

Mostly John Lennon songs.

Paul McCartney's autobiography "Many Years From Now" is a great read, he goes song by song from Day 1 until the breakup, and details everything: http://www.amazon.com/Paul-McCartney.../dp/0805052496

Lady Madonna which Sublime kinda redid with What I Got.

Tombstone RJ 02-11-2009 02:40 PM

The entire Revolver album. Pure genius.

I know, I cheat.

The Band was just a great group with a high level of musicianship. Love the band.

Anyone who hasn't seen THE LAST WALTZ.................go rent it. Unless you hate that type of music.

Totally agree ... love me some Levon.

There's a great "Behind The Music" about them ... scratch that, I'm thinking of "Classic Albums - The Band's 'The Band.'"

That BBC British TV series "Classic Albums" which airs on VH1 ... it's a great GREAT series ... Nirvana's "Nevermind" was an incredible episode, as was "Who's Next." Probably the best music documentary program ever. See the episode "The Band," it's an unforgettable hour.

bowtown 02-11-2009 02:48 PM

"In My Life," not even close.


Also, The Kinks were better than the Beattles and Rolling Stones combined. There, I said it.

No, your not cheating. Its one big perfect song.
Of course its really just nothing compared to "Smell The Glove"

Northman 02-11-2009 02:54 PM

My Favorite is "Help". Simple, but catchy.

Best? Not sure. But probably "Eleanor Rigby".
