It makes sense to stick to core songs, if only because lesser known songs don't have a chance of getting a lot of votes. For example, I love their cover of "That's All Right (Mama)" from Live At The BBC, but a lot of people haven't even heard that. It's the same reason I'm hesitant to call "What's The New Mary Jane" one of their "worst" songs. Besides the fact that I like it in a weird way, it's from Anthology which only hardcore fans and collectors (for the most part) have ever bothered with.

 

Now that I'm mulling it over, I agree with Into The Sky With Diamonds that this exercise is a bit torturous. Also, it may be the cold medicine or lack of sleep... but when I was skimming the list of songs that meanmistermustard posted, I read "Love Me Do (Andy White on drums)" as "Love Andy White on drums" and thought "What the **** album was THAT on?" I'm glad I decided to look again before searching for it. a-hard-days-night-john-3

 

EIDT (so as not to double post): I like the idea of seeing if we as a community can resolve a top songs list from the core canon, then maybe trying it out with the lesser known stuff for us Beatley hipstery types.

It's a hidden track on With the Beatlesafter 5 hours of silence following Money (That's What I Want). And you call yourself a Beatles fan.

Pete Best covered it in 1964 as a two finger salute to being replaced by Ringo but was driven out whilst playing it in the middle of a concert by rabid Ringo fans. This led to Pete leaving the music industry, a world-wide ban of the song, a law being passed that the track should never be mentioned again, LP's with the track on being gathered and burned, and EMI forced to cut the track from future re-pressings of With The Beatles. Any surviving LPs with it on are worth a fortune but also will be result in death to all involved in the sale.

 

Who knows what will happen to 4or5Musicians when/if the authorities find out.

Actually, in 2009, physicists at Los Alamos (a joint team of physicists from the UK, France, Belgium, Canada and the U.S.A.) under the oversight of General Pepper (he'd been promoted) of the Pentagon conducted a battery of scientific tests using the OMSCF (the Objective Music Standardizer Conceleratronic Fabfourmulator):

AP/UPI March 2010 -- The team of physicists, headed by Professors Emeritus Leo McKern and Victor Spinetti, put the entire canon of Beatles songs one by one through the OMSCF chamber, and after a laborious process lasting 32 hours, during which lurid green and purple light pulsated and bathed the feverish faces of all the onlookers (wearing protective goggles of course) -- including behind the protective glass of the airtight booth George Martin, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, and friends and family, the scientists were successful in isolating the absolute best Beatles song, objectively and scientifically conclusive.  All attendees present, however, were sworn to secrecy to reveal the identity of that song, in the interest of international security and geopolitically fabulous coolness.  Some reports have been rumored about that a certain mole, otherwise known as "Deep Submarine", has the answer and wants to sell it to the highest bidder.  Inspector Clouseau is on the case.

So that's why you can't find any 5+ hour LPs after 1964. It all makes sense now!

 

They were all the rage. Its why record players has 33", 45" and 78" settings.
