Okay. I was looking at the board, and didn't see a thread like this, so I decided to make one of my own. It's pretty self-explanatory. I'd recommend going up to Revolver, as that is the last release in America that differentiates from the British release. (besides Hey Jude, which you can include if you want) Here's what my list would look like:

Introducing…. The Beatles: Fav's: Do You Want To Know A Secret, Boys: Least Fav: A Taste Of Honey

Meet The Beatles: Fav's: It Won't Be Long, This Boy: Least Fav: Little Child

The Beatles' Second Album: Fav's: You Can't Do That, I'll Get You (or She Loves You): Least Fav: I Call Your Name

A Hard Day's Night: Fav's: And I Love Her (actual song), If I Fell: Least Fav: A Hard Day's Night (instrumental)

Something New: Fav's: Things We Said Today, Tell Me Why: Least Fav: Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand

Beatles "65": Fav's: No Reply, Baby's In Black: Least Fav: She's A Woman

The Early Beatles: Same as Introducing…..

Beatles VI (one of my favorites): Fav's: You Like Me Too Much (I don't know why I like this song), Eight Days A Week, Yes It Is

Help!: Fav's: You're Going To Lose That Girl, The Night Before: Least Fav: Another Hard Day's Night

Rubber Soul: Fav's: You Won't See Me, In My Life: Least Fav: Wait

Yesterday…. And Today: Fav's: I'm Only Sleeping, If I Needed Someone: Least Fav: What Goes On

Revolver: Fav's: Got To Get You Into My Life, Here, There, And Everywhere (or She Said She Said): Least Fav: Love You Too

Hey Jude: Fav's: Rain, Hey Jude: Least Fav: Don't Let Me Down

There! That was tough. I can't wait to see your guys' lists.

Doesnt the best and worst from each album thread do pretty much the same job? There is little difference in the Rubber Soul and Revolver albums and who is going to select the instrumentals from the movie soundtracks as favourites?

I would agree with 75%.

I disagree with:

- I Call Your Name. It is indeed the rare time when the cover version (Mamas and Papas) was better than the Beatles', but still a reasonable song.

- She's a Woman. If you've got good bass on your speakers or headphones, this song rocks. It's arguably one of the first songs to feature the bass so prominently – and to good effect (yes the words are lame).

- 8 Days a Week is fluff, but if you accept it as such it's very reasonable (as with some of McCartney's 70s hits – but that's another story)

- Wait. A great example of a so-so song made very enjoyable through pure arrangement and production.

Okay. I listened to those songs again, and I can see what you mean. I did kind of rush this list. Thanks. I'd probably replace I Call Your Name with You Really Got A Hold On Me, and She's A Woman with Mr. Moonlight.

Yes. You're right. But, the reason I started this thread is because I hadn't ever seen any ones like it before, and I thought that because of the different arrangements on the albums, you'd get different results than you would for the regular albums, showing a further look into people's favorite and least favorite Beatles songs.
