As of late I'm prone to skipping all their normal stuff and listening just to the odd ones (Anthology series, Live At The BBC, that kind of thing) simply because I've listened to the same songs all over again I've become almost sick of hearing them.

I can relate to this.  I am obsessive about listening to every CD at least twice when I buy it, and have finally bought all of the Beatles (and a lot of solo) CDs after selling my LPs many years ago.  However, listening to Red, Blue, 1 and Love twice over is a bit much - I'm trying to space them out a bit.

About 2 years ago, I said
Then Yesterday goes at the top of the list... Through no one's fault but my own since I wasn't even allowed to listen to pop music radio when I was kid. I just played it to death on my own as soon as I was allowed to buy one Beatles album (I chose Yesterday and Today since it was a compilation). I'm starting to listen to it again, though, as I appreciate the string arrangement even more with my adult ears.

Of course, eventually I got too old for anyone to bother controlling my listening habits. So there are those same 10 Beatle songs that get played to death - at least in every city where I've lived: Drive My Car, Michelle, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, Let It Be, Hey Jude, Revolution, All You Need Is Love, Blackbird, Something, Long and Winding Road. I try not to skip them because I want to listen carefully in case I hear something new, but it's hard to make them "fresh" in my head.

I can barely stand to listen to Twist And Shout because of Ferris Bueller and, being originally from Chicago where the movie was set, so it was played at Every. Single. Subsequent. High School Dance.

I had a similar discussion about the most overplayed songs with someone because they told me they were working at an Apple store at the time the Beatles were acquired for iTunes, and the staff had to listen to the same 10 songs over and over for three weeks.

I said, "I can probably guess the songs you listened to." And of course they included Lady Madonna, Hey Jude, Yesterday and Ob-la-di. I said that last one in particular would have made me homicidal.

I always hear A Day In The Life on the radio

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

The B-Side of "Yellow Submarine", they could have filled it up with a lot of songs the Beatles wrote but never recorded, and saved the orchestrated instrumentals just for the movie.

Reminds me of the Capitol version of the Help LP!  Filler music, not done by The Beatles! blue-meanie
