Easily Norwegian Wood is my favorite on this. Least favorite is Run for Your Life, even if George's guitar on it is good. Not crazy about What Goes On, but it's not terrible. Every else I like, but have varying degree of fatigue over because I've listened to them so much over the years. Honestly, as an album I've never loved Rubber Soul as much othr many other Beatles fan. I'm more of Revolver person. But can't live without Norwegian Wood.

It's very difficult to say my favorite song on Rubber Soul LP. Especially since it is pretty much my favorite.. Or at least tied with Abbey Road and White Album.
I guess I would have to say: In My Life, or I'm Looking Through You, or Girl, or Michelle.. See its just too hard. What a great album! I think the only song I'm not too crazy about on the album is What goes on.

Rubber Soul is definitely one of my favorite albums and it's hard to choose between those great songs. But if I had to choose, I would pick Norwegian Wood, In My Life, Think For Yourself and Nowhere Man as my favorite songs. When I'm in the mood for singing, I love Drive My Car and Run For Your Life. IMO, the weakest songs on the album are What Goes On and Michelle - I find them both quite boring.

Rubber Soul is such a great album. Easily one of my favorites. Here is my ranking of the songs (on the Parlophone release) This was extremely tough!

 

                                14: What Goes On (sorry, Ringo)

                                13: Wait

                                12: Run For Your Life

                                11: Think For Yourself

                                10: I'm Looking Through You

                                  9: Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) (Slighty overrated, in my opinion)

                                  8: Girl

                                  7: Michelle

                                  6: The Word

                                  5: Drive My Car

                                  4: If I Needed Someone (underrated)

                                  3: Nowhere Man

                                  2: You Won't See Me (underrated )                                                                          

                                  1: My favorite, In My Life

In My Life is great. Then again, all of them are great. And The Word. The only song I don't listen to on that album is What Goes On, sorry Ringo!

I decided to post what I think first before reading the thread to see how I compare.

 

I LOVE Rubber Soul. Another album that I wasn't to fond of when I first got it but grew to love it. If I had to pick my favorite songs it would be....top 5 atleast

 

1.) Nowhere Man

2.) Think For Yourself

3.) Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)

4.) Drive My Car

5.) In My Life

 

Wow, that was harder than I thought it would be!

Try to realize it's all within yourself, no one else can make you change....

I have to say If I Needed Someone. I love the middle eight; very deep sounding.heartThe harmonies are great throughout the album, but this is my favourite. Nowhere Man is a close second with the opening harmony.

Generally I like Rubber Soul very much, I prefer it over Revolver. It's my third favourite beatles album not counting naked and my fourth favourite counting naked

1. Abbey Road
2. White Album
(3. Let It Be... Naked)
3./4. Rubber Soul

I think Rubber Soul is John's best album, it's probaby the only beatles album in which my favourite song is by john (not counting yellow submarine in which Hey Bulldog is my favourite) and in which I prefer john's songs over paul's

In My Life, lyrics... lyrics are just beautiful. On 2nd place Norwegian Wood and on 3rd If I Needed Someone (though 3rd place is always changing).

It's hard to beat Rubber Soul/Revolver for a 1-2 punch...

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967
