LMD was written in 1962 so whilst the lyrics are incredibly basic i find its naivety is its quality and cut it a lot of slack. And that it still perked some peoples ears due to its diffent sound says a lot of the music scene at the time.

 

I like the heat with all of this, gives the place some bite. As long as people are respectful of others and their thoughts and dont let it get personal then let the bullets of annoyance be fired.

Apparently my parents and brother think You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) is annoying considering my best friend and I started screaming "You, you know, you know my name!" repeatedly on vacation after having one too many sweet teas each on the 20 minute car ride back home….

lol…for someone to complain about "You Know My Name" for being too repetitive means they're totally missing the point! Or totally getting the point…or something…

I like all Beatles songs, but Im really tired of "Help". Thats got to be the song from them (imo) that gets annoying really fast.

All You Need Is Love, Help!, Eight Days A Week, and Hello, Goodbye are the main ones.
I like all of these songs, but they just annoy me for some reason, probably because they're on the popular, overplayed side.

I can hardly say it got annoying "fast" – I've known the song for like 35 years – but I was listeniing to "Paperback Writer" on headphones last night, and those backing vocals at the end began to really irritate me. Especially that final harmonized "wri-i-i-ter!" Did they really have to sing it so HIGH? I'm not even sure who's singing that top note.

Any song that was clearly written to be a commercial song ("All You Need Is Love", "Hello, Goodbye", "Come Together", etc.). I'm not saying this to be "hipster" (sorry I resurrected that obnoxious word, guys, but it was the only suitable description I could think of…) or anything, but I get so annoyed when someone discovers my passion for The Beatles and consequently makes a statement about how much they "love" their music and continues to tell me that their favorite song is one of the best-known, most commercialized songs. When I proceed to tell them that mine is a tie between "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" and "Girl", they give me a puzzled look as they inform me that they have never heard of those songs before. When they ask me to list more songs that I'm particularly fond of ("Happiness Is A Warm Gun", "Rain", "This Boy", etc.) in hopes that they, too, will share an appreciation for the material (or at least know what it is…), they confusedly stare at me as they try to register all of those new-to-them song titles.

Now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with someone's favorite Beatles songs being one of the super popular ones--they are, after all, considered to be classics for a reason--but I really cannot stand when they're someone's "favorite" just because they're the only ones they know (and knowing when to sing "All You Need Is Love, love: love is all you need" should not count as "knowing" the song!).

Really, I'm more annoyed with the people in the end than the commercialism of the songs… ahdn_paul_01The Beatles shouldn't be put down just because they were able to appeal to/sell to so many!

Dipsy, I know exactly how you feel. :|
When I tell people about my Beatles obsession, they'll ask me what my favorite song is, and I'll reply Hey Jude, A Day In The Life, Penny Lane, Girl, Lovely Rita, and maybe a few others, but surprise, surprise: Hey Jude is the only one they've ever heard of. Their favorite is usually Let it Be, maybe All You Need Is Love. And most of the time, as you said, they only know the chorus, which only consistists of five words.
Trust me, I know how tiring it can get.

Ive said it before but the most annoying answer ive ever heard to the question of favourite beatle song is Imagine. There is nothing i can reply to that which is in anyway polite and reasoned.

You don't need to be obsessed with a band and know all of their songs to love them. I say I love The Four Seasons, but I only have a couple greatest hits albums. I wouldn't tell people I'm a really hardcore fan of theirs, but I would say I love their music.

Annoying fast? Answer: mostly Paul's whimsical songs. I am talkin' 'bout the wretched Oh Blah Di Oh Blah Dah, and the almost as wretched Maxwell's Silver Hammer. Paul is a wonderful tunesmith, and possibly the best Melody-maker. But damn some of his songs grate after a time.

Yes there is – "What album's it off?"

If you know, say, 5 songs – Let It Be, Penny Lane, Yellow Submarine, All You Need Is Love and Hey Jude, say – how can you say you love the Beatles, a band who has 13 albums and 217 songs? I love the song 1904 by The Tallest Man on Earth. It's an awesome song. But I can't say I love The Tallest man on Earth on such limited knowledge. Because, if I were to do so, I would be using expansive language when my love is of a particular song. Same rationale for the example above.

I would probably agree with you in that you can't make too good of a judgement on how much you like a band with only knowing five songs of theirs, although I'm pretty sure I can say I love the Four Seasons.

"Love Me Do", just too repetitive. I cant stop listening to "Please Please Me" right now but whenever I get to "Love Me Do" I find myself skipping it most of the time.

"Hey Jude" is a classic song but I just hear it too much due to friends always wanting to sing the la la la's! a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Oh I've got a good handful of these tucked away somewhere but I don't want to revisit them all right now….

Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey comes to mind though. I used to really like it. now I just get irritated with it. It's a bit obnoxious. That was probably the point of the song though a-hard-days-night-john-7

Every time I try to come up with one that "gets annoying", I end up saying, "um no, not really".

 

C'mon guys, it's the freaking Beatles!  Even their bad stuff is great!

As I've said elsewhere, I don't like Hello Goodbye.

To be honest though, although there are some Beatles songs I prefer to others there are very few that I really don't like.

I find Maxwell's Silver Hammer a bit irritating to be honest although it is melodic.

Teddy Boy is dreadful but I don't think that should really count because the Beatles never officially released it at the time.

The annoying ones are more from the solo careers.

Wonderful Christmastime is the worst.

Can't stand it and yet you can't get away from the damn thing.  Wherever you go at Christmas you hear it and just when you think it can't get any worse the cheesy video comes on the telly.

The amazing thing is, according to Wikipedia, Paul makes nearly half a million dollars in royalties every year from this one song.  Average Joe would have to work fulltime everyday for 20 years to earn that much.  Unbelievable.

I'd love to know what John Lennon thought of Wonderful Christmastime.  Something tells me he wouldn't find it all that wonderful.  I could imagine him swearing at the telly when it comes on, like I do.
