Hope there's another thread like this.
My favorite would be probably Rain.

Sorry for the double post. Meant to say "hope there's NOT another thread like this." :)

Mine would probably be… Rain. Although I'm Down is my favourite when I need a laugh.

Rain (I'm beginning to see a trend here). Revolution is a close second.

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

Interesting...I was expecting people to say Revolution, but glad it's Rain. Such a great song (aren't they all?) and much better than the "rain rain go away, come again another day" (half) song.

Tricky because some B sides are really "double A" songs: Day Tripper, Strawberry Fields.

Revolution might have been one of those.

A real B side song was Yellow Submarine. Considering the impact of that song when it became a movie two years later, it would have to rank as an all time great B side regardless of its musical/lyrical merits. Right?

My first thought was, of course, "Rain." But then I thought of "Old Brown Shoe" and "We Can Work It Out" and "I'm Down." So now I'm undecided.
Nah, "Rain" pwns.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I believe that was the "B Sides Better than A Sides" topic, which is slightly different

Yellow Submarine/Eleanor Rigby was a double A side.

It's hard to say for me, Revolution is brilliant and Rain is really good too. I think Revolution shades it.

Edit: I always forget I Am The Walrus in these discussions. That's my favourite.

Beatles b-sides were never your average  'b-side' quality. How This Boy could only be a b-side is insane.

 

Anyway. Favourite. I'll go for Old Brown Shoe. Classic George. Out of the norm and vastly underrated.

That really is difficult isn't it -- naming a favourite B-side -- considering the quality of the material.    Several years ago, I burned a CD consisting of just the B-sides of all their British singles (I counted "Day Tripper", "Yellow Submarine" and "Strawberry Fields" as B-sides, even though I believe they shared A-side status with their flipsides) -- and I thought to myself "man, if EMI released this, it would be a Number One seller -- what other artist could release an album of their B-sides and top the charts?").

Anyway, my favourite Beatle B-side is "Revolution" -- um.. or is it "I Am The Walrus"?.... or perhaps "Old Brown Shoe"... no..... "This Boy"... no, wait....

I've got nothing to say, but it's okay.. GOOD MORNING! GOOD MORNING!! GOOD MORNING!!!

I like 'Old Brown Shoe' Thought that should have been the A side.

Let me think… I'm between This Boy, Yes It Is, Rain, I Am The Walrus, Revolution, Come Together and You Know My Name. a-hard-days-night-ringo-4
It's true that many B-sides are good, often better than the A-sides, in my opinion.
