I really like One After 909 on Let It Be, whereas I know a lot don't. I love the way they took one of their very early songs and put it on what they knew would probably be their last album..

 

There are actually quite a few I don't like … as for hate… mmmmm…..

One After 909 is one of my favorites on that album! The energy of that song is incredible.

I think many people don't like Maxwell's Silver Hammer but I love it.
Songs that others like but I hate are Yellow Submarine and All You Need Is Love

I loved All You Need Is Love as a kid. We only had it on the 20 Greatest Hits cassette and it would be played when on long car journeys (back when it was either the radio or cassette, no ipods or cds), and it sounded so different to everything else i had ever heard, what with the orchestral intro and how John sang it. My parents had 3 beatles albums (20 Greatest Hits, Love Songs & Pepper) amongst a whole load of cassettes.

One of the greatest discoveries was the 6 or 7 vinyl beatles lps they had hidden amongst other stuff. Loved playing those as a kid. Would get home after school and play them, side 3 of Love Songs was an addiction. I still have those in a cupboard.

 

Getting the thread away from my childhood memories, Yer Blues is a great song especially when blasted out loud. The groove they get into after the last of Johns vocals. Sides 3 & 4 of The White Album are sadly overlooked by many, especially Yer Blues thru to Cry Baby Cry.

I used to dislike All You Need Is Love. Then one night at about 3:30 in the morning I came swinging home abysmally drunk after a particularly upsetting night out, put on some music, threw myself onto the bed and stared at the whirling ceiling. The first song that my iTunes shuffled to was All You Need Is Love, and even as drunk as I was, listening to John singing I felt tears coming to my eyes. I'd never really "got" the song before but now it seemed like the most profound and amazing thing ever to grace my ears. I've loved it ever since. True story.

I forget one beatles song that I love but others hate: Piggies, I think it has a good sound with the harpsichord and it's funny

Someone doesn't like Happiness Is A Warm Gun? Now that is weird :D.

 

As for me, Wait is the song that I got impression that doesn't get much fans, but to me it sounds great.

I agree with Long John Silver on "Wait"

This is what I call a "production" song: a so-so song rendered truly enjoyable by way of the production. I love the use of the organ at the end of the verses, and I'm particularly fond of the ending ("I'm   so   aloooooone…..")

 

See the Great Outros thread in the Recordings and Musicology section of the Forum

 

The fact that the song was thrown in at the last minute doesn't detract from its value (a la "A Hard Day's Night").

I used to disagree with my friend about it- when I first heard it I was blown off my feet but when I played it to him he said "It's like they've forgotten about simple rock songs. It's like prog-metal." I can't say I hear Yes or King Crimson in it but there's certainly a Sabbath-esque feel to the middle section.

@Ben Ramon

That is what is great about the song, it has that more metal rock style that would be used in the 70's.

 

@ISD

That's right, it's quite catchy too :).

My best friend HATES Happiness Is A Warm Gun! I have no idea why, and she doesn't either. She just says, "there's something about it", like how I feel about Yesterday.

Yeah, I love that ending! I wish that "Wait" had been used in place of "Run For Your Life" as Rubber Soul's closer.

Some on this Forum have considered these songs to be poorly recorded.

I've always liked them both. "Free As A Bird" got more promotion, but I prefer "Real Love"

Being a new member here (this is my first post) I'm not sure if these are exactly "hated" by people on this forum, so instead this list is based off the opinions of people I actually know.

1. You Know My Name (Look Up the Number) - For some reason, this song always seems to bring a smile to my face. It's fun, and not meant to be taken seriously. Strange, but oddly relaxing.

2. Your Mother Should Know - Usually biggest complaints come from it being repetitive. In my opinion, there's nothing wrong with having a repetitive song if it's well written and catchy.

3. Revolution 1 - Usually disliked as it's not the faster, single version that everyone's use to hearing, but I actually prefer this version.
