Revolver is, I think everyone can agree, an AMAZING album. But my question for you is, Which of these amazing songs is your favorite? My favorite would probably have to be either Eleanor Rigby or Got To Get You Into My Life. Or maybe And Your Bird Can Sing. Nope, I'm Only Sleeping is it. Actually… Ok, I'm going to stop right there. Even though I can't pick a fave, maybe you can… a-hard-days-night-george-10 ENJOY!!!!

Wow, this is a tough one…I think I'm gonna have to go with "And Your Bird Can Sing" tho. I think it's so mind-boggling how The Beatles could take a "throw-away song" and transform it into such a catchy, philosophical tune. Great guitar work, fantastic vocal work/harmonies, and excellent energy. In short, I love this song!

Second place? "Tomorrow Never Knows"! Not that second place matters…a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Probably best to go by singer for John, Paul and George.

From Paul's offerings Here, There & Everythere. The glorious harmonies by George and John, the lyrics are exceptional, love the little guitar licks, and Paul sings it perfectly, closely followed by For No One.

George's would be I Want To Tell You. Love You To has an amazing intro, one of the best for how it starts and stops then finally picks up speed and just rushes thru but there has always been something about IWTTY which i have loved since first play.

For John, wow where to start. And Your Bird Can Sing with the guitars and vocals, She Said She Said is quite extraordinary and unique, but at a push Tomorrow Never Knows. Right from the start with drums and then the tape loops, words cannot sum up how ahead of its time it was and even now bands are building their sound based on trying to replicate parts of whats in there. Even Take 1 on Anthology is stunning, not as good tho.

14-Yellow Submarine
13-Tomorrow Never Knows
12-She Said She Said
11-Dr. Robert
10-I'm Only Sleeping
9-Eleanor Rigby
8-I Want To Tell You
7-Love You To
6-Got To Get You Into My Life (the first amazing song of the album)
5-Taxman
4-Good Day Sunshine
3-And Your Bird Can Sing (definitely one of john's best songs, he sings the verses quite good, but I think Paul could have sung the chorus better)
2-Here There And Everywhere
1-For No One (the best song of the album for me)

I'm not a very big fan of Revolver I like the songs I rankes from 1-6 very much but the other 8 songs….. I don't like one of them very much. So I would call revolver the beatles' 5th best album

1. Abbey Road
2. White Album
3. Let It Be… Naked (sorry I have to take Naked)
4. Rubber Soul
5. Revolver

Is She Said, She Said the only Beatles song in their entire catalogue that features John, George and Ringo without Paul? I cannot think of another but there may be. Maybe Across The Universe if Pauls playing was wiped and not just buried?

Paul plays piano of the past/mono masters and the let it be versions of Across The Universe, it's clearly audible in the outro, i think he doesn't play on the naked version and I know if he plays on the anthology version, but the first two version are often called the official vrsions and on both paul is audible

You might have, long John. I didn't check if someone had already done it.

No no, I've meant this topic you made. I probably thought I answered it so I closed it (as I open a lot of tabs so it can confuse you sometimes :) .

"She Said She Said" is the only all-but-Paul recording, yeah. And it's my choice for favourite song (at least today, since "Tomorrow Never Knows" or "Here There & Everywhere" or "And Your Bird Can Sing" could take it on any other day). Those unique John/George harmonies, Ringo's crazy drum fills, the nostalgic longing John puts into the "When I was a boy…", that nagging just-barely-audible organ, those GUITARS, man…

First and foremost may I just say that I have been away for two weeks and boy have I missed this!

Fave track on Revolver? Hard one. I think it will have to be Tommorow Never Knows although Here, There And Everywhere, Love You To and Eleanor Rigby follow closely behind.

Meanmrmustard the piano of Across The Universe is in the outro of the Past Masters and let it be version (not in the naked and not in the anthology version), when john sings various times jai guru deva, jai guru deva…. it sounds a bit like a bass

It's so hard to chose one song from Revolver… Because John's an Paul's songs on Revolver are so different. In a great way.

My favourite John's song is certainly She Said She Said (I don't think Tomorrow Never Knows is a great tune, but it's so innovative and EPIC.) a-hard-days-night-john-2

My favourite Paul's song is more hard to chosea-hard-days-night-paul-7, because all Here There And Everywhere, Eleanor Rigby and For No One are so ***** awsome!

Eleanor Rigby of those three definitely :)

I rarely listen to either of those mixes but the next time i do i'll try and hear it, will give me some reason to focus on at the end.

This is hard. Revolver might be my favorite Beatles albums, if not it's really close. It used to be I'm Only Sleeping, but now it is probably For No One. I absolutely love this song, the lyrics are amazing, as is the music, and Paul's voice couldn't sound any better. Here, There And Everywhere is a really close second, although it might even be first. There really is not a bad song on this album. Doctor Robert and It's All Too Much took me a while to get to like, but now I think they're pretty good ones.

''It's All Too Much'' is off Yellow Submarine but I get what you're saying.
