Hmm…. I do love the title track because it just has the feeling of pulling the audience in. I like feeling like a part of it all. Also, the harmonies are great but when are they ever NOT great?
But A Day In The Life takes the cake, you can't argue with that. I love the verse about the holes, I think that's my favourite part.

Honestly, as much as I've always wanted to claim that Sgt. Pepper is the great masterpiece that so many others claim it is, I just can't. For me, the most impeccable production values in the world can't cover up the core fact that this isn't the best batch of songs the guys ever came up with. Paul wrote (or, at least, was the primary writer of) 8 of the album's 13 tracks (along with contributing the middle section to John's "A Day In The Life")… but, despite this, I feel it's the only Beatles album (Yellow Submarine notwithstanding) to which he did not contribute at least one bona fide home run of a song that also ranks among his all-time greatest compositions.
Beatles for Sale had "I'll Follow The Sun"
On Sgt. Pepper, the title track and its reprise (and maybe "When I'm Sixty-Four") were his best contributions, being doubles at the most. The rest are merely singles, IMO. The group really shot themselves in the foot by leaving off both "Penny Lane" and "Strawberry Fields Forever" -- arguably the 2 best songs written for these sessions. I've constructed my own personal cut of the album with this alternate track listing:
"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band;" "With a Little Help from My Friends;" "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds;" "Fixing A Hole"; "Only A Northern Song;" "Penny Lane;" "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!"
As it is, I'd rank the tracks as follows:
2. "Good Morning, Good Morning"
3. "Within You, Without You"
4. "A Day In The Life"
5. "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!"
6. "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)"
7. "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"
8. "When I'm Sixty-Four"
9. "Getting Better"
10. "With a Little Help from My Friends"
11. "Fixing A Hole"
12. "She's Leaving Home"
13. "Lovely Rita"

While "A Day In The Life" is an obvious treasure, I'd to go with either "LSD" (for its simplicity and soaring glory), or Harrison's spiritually enlightening "Within You Without You", which I think is underrated because it was so unconventional for The Beatles. But listen to just all the details in the entire composition. An Eastern symphony, in a sense.

It kills me to choose. Some of my favorite songs are on this album! I guess I have to go with A Day In The Life. On top of loving the song itself, I started singing along with it the first time I heard it. I knew exactly when the singing started and ended. On top of that, I knew the lyrics. Yeah, I was a little freaked out for a bit.
