Let it Be: F - I've Got A Feeling, I Me Mine, Let It Be or Across The Universe   LF - (I don't consider Dig It or Maggie Mae songs - more fragments) The Long and Winding...

I've always found the intro the only decent part of the whole song, interesting that you see it the other way round.

I don't have time to do all of them but I'll just make a start on their first five albums:

 

Please Please Me: I Saw Her Standing There/Baby It's You

With the Beatles: It Won't Be Long/Little Child

A Hard Day's Night: A Hard Day's Night/You can't do that

Beatles For Sale: Eight Days A Week/Kansas City

Help: The Night before/Dizzy Miss Lizzy (this one's definitely in my top 5 of least favourite Beatles songs)

Right now I can only say one track - Revolution 9 from the White Album. I really can not understand why they put this 8.22 minutes long track on vinyl!???

^^ Because some of us like it. a-hard-days-night-john-7 

I wouldn't say it's the best, of course, but not the worst either. 

It really doesn't matter if I'm wrong I'm right where I belong I'm right where I belong
