I'll take my next challenge: ranking every songs from A Hard Day's Night. The results of the ranking depends on each song's melody and catchiness. This will be "a hard day's rank" and I would be very interested in hearing your opinion.a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

13) When I Get Home

12) Things We Said Today

11) I'll Cry Instead

10) I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

9) Any Time At All

8) If I Fell

7) I Should Have Known Better

6) Tell Me Why

5) And I Love Her

4) You Can't Do That

3) I'll Be Back

2) A Hard Day's Night

1) Can't Buy Me Love

What's with the reverse order…?  Is that a Euro thing (like the metric system)?blue-meanie

Anyway, here's my list, with 1 = best, on top:

1) A Hard Day's Night

2) Things We Said Today

3) And I Love Her

4) I Should Have Known Better

5) If I Fell

6) Can't Buy Me Love

7) I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

8) Any Time At All

9) Tell Me Why

10) I'll Be Back

11) I'll Cry Instead

12) When I Get Home

13) You Can't Do That

I don't know, I've always been doing that. I always save the best for later. After I finished my list, I listened to each song from "worst" to best to check if my ears could feel the songs "getting better" and it did in a way, so I'm satisfied with my list so far.

It is not a Euro thing. It is a common way of presenting these types of lists, even in America. Take a look at Rolling Stone's list of the 100 best Beatles songs. It starts at 100 and works its way up to 1. And while things like the weekly music charts may be presented in numerological order, any radio or TV show I have ever heard/seen presenting the week's chart works it's way toward the Number 1, and doesn't start with it.

I can see (pun intended) how an oral presentation like on radio would start last and work up (i.e. down) to the first; but when presented visually it seems to make more sense to have #1 on top, like a mountaintop.
