I liked The Beatles before it was cool. (as in, I like all their music before 1965. I mean, I still like their later stuff but am very picky about what songs I like, while their older stuff I love it all. I am just not a fan of drugged out Beatles. Drugs scare me.)

WARNING! You probably won't aggres with my choises here, because I have weird tastes in music (read my signature for more info) so don't judge me. And trust me NO Beatles song is bad. These are just ones I dislike. 

F: I Saw Her Standing There
LF: A Taste Of Honey

With The Beatles
F: You can't make me pick! This is probably my favorite album. 
LF: None

A Hard Day's Night
F: A Hard Days Night, Can't Buy Me Love, Tell Me Why
LF: If I Fell

Beatles For Sale
F: I'm A Loser
LF: Baby's in Black

Help!
F: Yesterday. This is my most favorite song. Ever. I have apromixated that if you combine all the times I have listened to Yesterday, it equals about 20 hours. BEST 20 HOURS OF MY LIFE!!!!
LF: You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

Rubber Soul
F: Michelle
LF: If I Needed Someone

Revolver
F: Eleanor Rigby, I'm Only Sleeping (that song is the story of my life. My average time to sleep in till on weekends is 2pm. My record is till 7pm. And it's not like I stay up till 2 in the morning. I get to bed at around 11pm)
LF: Love You To

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
F: Sgt Pepper/Little Help From My Friends (it has to be the medly one)
LF: Within You Without You 

Magical Mystery Tour
F: Penny Lane and Your Mother Should Know
LF: Blue Jay Way

The White Album
F: Back In The USSR
LF: Revolution 9

Yellow Submarine 
F: All together Now
LF: Only A Northern Song

Let It Be
F: Let It Be
LF: Dig It

Abbey Road
F: Here Comes The Sun
LF: Come Together (I'm gonna get a lot of crap for this but to me its just a boring song)

Someone really doesn't like George's songs. Damn. "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" and "Come Together"! Someone has a problem with John's best songs. Really obscure picks. 

To each is own, but really? Damn.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

I know that Come Together has been criticised on the basis that whilst John's vocal and Ringo's drumming at the end are good moments, the bands playing is too lackadaisical overall.

White Album:
best on disc one - Back In The USSR
worst on disc one - Martha My Dear

worst on disc two - Mother Nature's Son (it would be Revolution 9, if you let it count as a song, which I don't)

Let It Be:
best - One After 909

Hmm. Well, I agree with most of those, except I'm wondering about "Carry That Weight." Were you judging it by itself, or by its placement in the medley? I'll agree that it isn't a very strong song on its own, but neither were any of the other AR medley songs. (Except maybe "You Never Give Me Your Money.) I think one has to take the fact that none of the songs in the medley were intended to stand on their own as songs into consideration. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Yeah, I get your point. Well, I was judging the medley songs individually, because actually, I like all of the medley songs, each one on its own, and I also like them bundled together in the medley, I just don't like Carry That Weight. In my opinion it could have been left out; I don't like it as a part of the medley.

Oh go on then I'll do a list. It won't be easy though a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

 

Please Please Me

Favourite: I Saw Her Standing There. Awesome. It's just awesome

Least Favourite: P.S. I Love You. Too Slow.

 

With The Beatles

Favourite: I Wanna Be Your Man. Mainly because it's Ringo, and who doesn't like a Ringo song?

Least Favourite: Not A Second Time. Just is a bit bland.

 

A Hard Days Night

Favourite: You Can't Do That. Mainly because of John's guitar solo and his bitterness

Least Favourite: And I Love Her. Just boring and slow again. Nice lyrics though

 

Beatles For Sale

Favourite: I'm A Loser. I love John's vocals on this, especially the way he says clown, frown etc.

Least Favourite: Mr. Moonlight. I think someone said above, starts with a bang but doesn't go anywhere.

 

Help!

Favourite: Help! (Stereo version)

Least Favourite: You're Going To Lose That Girl. Basically anything with Ringo on something different than his drums I don't like

 

Rubber Soul

Favourite: Think For Yourself. The fuzz bass is awesome

Least Favourite: If I Needed Someone. No offense to George, but it's just a very tame song.

 

Revolver

Favourite: Taxman. Well it is my name

Least Favourite: Here There And Everywhere. Nice vocals but doesn't really go anywhere.

 

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Favourite: (Changes every day) Today it is Good Morning Good Morning. Listen to Ringo's drumming. It's amazing

Least Favourite: Don't have one. It's like asking a parent of two kids to pick their favourite.

 

Magical Mystery Tour (EP)

Favourite: I Am The Walrus. John' at his creative peak in 1967

Least Favourite: The Fool On The Hill. Didn't really enjoy the song. (But I did enjoy Paul's skipping in the movie)

 

Magical Mystery Tour (LP)

Favourite: Strawberry Field Forever. Everything about this song is perfect

Least Favourite: Baby You're A Rich Man.

 

White Album Disc 1

Favourite: Happiness Is A Warm Gun. I love the different stages the song goes through

Least Favourite: Wild Honey Pie. Bleh. Can't believe this made it onto the album.

 

White Album Disc 2

Favourite: Birthday. Awesome rock song.

Least Favourite: Revolution 9. What were they thinking?

 

Let it Be

Favourite: Currently Dig A Pony

Least Favourite: Dig it. Just a snippet of a song really

 

Abbey Road

Favourite: Polythene Pam/She Came In Through The Bathroom Window. I don't care if they are two different songs, they count as one in my book.

 

Least Favourite: Because. Annoying Vocals. Plus Yoko had some involvement in the inspiration for this track so it must be bad.

 

This took half an hour to write paul-mccartney.

I have actually been lurking here for almost a year, and I made an account in February but never posted. No idea why I didn't.

 

Also, I had no idea that there was a Mrs. Taxman here before me a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 and we are not married in any way
