"I Want To Tell You" is quite possibly my favorite song of all time. It's basically how I feel all the time. 

Favorite John: "She Said She Said." I've always felt this little piece of brilliance was underrated. 

Favorite Paul: "For No One." Not going to lie, this song often makes me cry. 

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

^Yay, you rhymed.

On "Revolver":

Favourite John Song: She Said She Said

Favourite Paul Song: For No One

Favourite George Song: Taxman

 

The John and Paul songs are the same as your's, MeanMrsMustard.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

Favorite on Revolver: Tomorrow Never Knows. Which makes it my favorite John song, but I'm Only Sleeping and And Your Bird Can Sing tie for a very close second. ANYBCS was playing on "Breakfast with the Beatles" this morning and I couldn't help but cardance. :-) The descending dual guitars get me every time, and hearing the song always brings me back to watching the cartoon as a kid because that was the third (read: good) season intro with the live action Beatles morphing into animated versions.

Paul: Eleanor Rigby was my favorite song as a child, but I wore it out. I still appreciate it, but these days I'm more likely to listen to For No One. Honorable mention: Got To Get You Into My Life (and the Earth, Wind & Fire cover it inspired).

George: I Want To Tell You. I so love that dissonant piano.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Being the Revolver advocate I am, I'm surprised I don't have a post here previously. If I do, then I'm not surprised, because I skimmed the thread briefly.. That aside, my favorite song on Revolver is currently I'm Only Sleeping, followed by Taxman. I have a hard time deciding whether I prefer For No One or Here, There, and Everywhere; I like them both equally, to be honest. 

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.

Nearly impossible task……this album is glorious. Top five in no particular order -

1/   For No One

2/   Tomorrow Never Knows

3/   Eleanor Rigby

4/   Love You To

5/   Taxman

I see lots of votes for Here, There and Everywhere – definitely not one I'm keen on but I seem to be in the minority.

My question is probably an indication to most here how *green* I am, Beatlemaniac-wise:  Why isn't "And Your Bird Can Sing" on my LP of Revolver which I purchased like 30 years ago…?

That was Capitol Records' doing. They'd routinely release truncated versions of Beatles' British LPs, leaving off a few tracks ("And Your Bird", "I'm Only Sleeping" and "Doctor Robert" in Revolver's case) and setting them aside for the near future; and when they'd accumulated enough leftover songs, releasing them as a "new" "album". Two British albums on Parlophone thus became three American (or Canadian) albums on Capitol. Profit!

Revolver is nowhere as good with the three missing Lennon tracks, always seemed daft to me they took just John songs for what became Yesterday and Today, subsequently limiting him to less tracks than George (probably the only Beatle album to do so).

Yeah, pretty much, although Let It Be comes close.

Had to be just coincidence that only John's songs were taken, right? I'd be surprised if the Capitol Records suits had any knowledge of which Beatle wrote which song, or who sang what. Or if they gave the matter any thought at all rather than just threw darts at a board.

Probably asked EMI for 3 tracks ready to go, got those and shoved them on with little care or attention. Yesterday and Today is a good album to listen to, one of the better US concoctions.

I am slowly replacing all my Beatles CD's (for the 2nd time) and I just bought Revolver on Friday.  So, I find it really difficult to pick my absolute fav song!!  The one's I love are:  She Said, She Said;  I'm Only Sleeping; & Taxman :)

Pretty much a flawless album. Hard to choose a favorite, although of the lesser-known tracks, For No One is always one of my favorites, for various personal reasons.

'For No One' is a beautiful song, and very under-appreciated. I've always thought it to be one of the strongest tracks on Revolver.

For No One and Here, There & Everywhere are both beautiful songs.  It really is an incredible album.

It's awesome when it's been a while since you've listened to an album & you sort of "rediscover" it all over again.  I find that I really get a new appreciation for the songs.  I was addicted to AHDN for a while…now it's Revolver…what will it be next?! a-hard-days-night-george-10

Got to be honest and say im not a huge fan of Good Day Sunshine. Its bouncy but not that great on its own. The power and awesomeness of She Said, She Said and And Your Bird Can Sing really improve it when playing the album thru. The sign of a quality album.
