I disagree.

It would take a lot of it's spirit away if would only be 3.25. However, I do think 8 minutes is too long.

Overrated:

  • Penny Lane - When I first heard this song, I thought is was just a happy little tune about the neighborhood, and though the chorus is really nice, that's about it. 
  • Norwegian Wood - It's great that they brought new innovation to music, but the song is just way too overblown
  • Yesterday/Hey Jude/Let it Be - Too overplayed
  • Michelle - I feel like everyone is so caught up on saying it's underrated that it's overrated. I keep hearing the name over and over again, and once I heard the actual song, I felt that it's rating was just fine. I just find it a bit dull.

Underrated:

Same here. It's in my top ten, maybe #2 or #3, after The Fool On The Hill. My list changes a lot though.

Does anyone else think that Till There Was You is really overrated? at least among Beatles fans? 

I don't like it because George is flat picking a classical guitar, and that just doesn't sound good. Classical guitars have so much potential when played finger style, and in my opinion, a pick really takes away all the beauty and tastefulness from those guitars. I think I would like it better if they recorded it the same way they played it on the Ed Sullivan. 

A song I think is really underrated is I Need You. That's probably my favorite George song and my favorite song on Help

I've posted here before, but only in response to Mimi, so here goes.

Overrated:

  • Hey Jude (Excess of na-na -- fun live, but all that's unnecessary in the studio.)
  • All You Need Is Love (Kind of an anthem, but a bit more popular than it should be given there are better songs from both the albums it's on.)

Well... those are the only ones I'd say are really overrated. I considered others, too, but just because I've heard them a million times doesn't necessarily make them overrated (Come Together and With A Little Help From My Friends, for examples...)

Underrated:

  • Misery (I really like it in terms of early Beatles, it's probably just not well-known enough.)
  • Hey Bulldog (Awesome rocker, plus I named myself after it. Similar situation as above.)
  • Piggies (I think that everybody knows, oh yeah.)
  • I've Got A Feeling (Another great rocker, some of my favorite Paul vocals with the Beatles.)
  • Oh! Darling (Sorta switches between tempos in a really cool way, from the smoother, calm sadness to the downright screaming angst... LOVE this song.)
  • What Goes On (A Ringo tune usually seen as a throwaway, the worst on Rubber Soul, etc. But I really like it, honestly.)
  • Boys (A Ringo-sung cover that really isn't talked about much. It's just a really fun little early Beatles rocker.)
  • Don't Pass Me By (For some reason, I really love this song... I don't know, it just has a really good melody in my opinion. The fiddle is interesting, a nice touch.)
  • Rocky Raccoon (I've always really liked Paul's story songs, and this is no exception.)
  • Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (Same as above)
  • Cry Baby Cry (This one has grown on me a lot lately.)
If you're lonely (or not!), you can talk to me. .....Hey! Are you a new member on this fine forum and don't know where to go to introduce yourself? Well, you can do it here! Dig it?

Also, the copious amount of love metaphors clog my arteries.

Overrated:

Hey Jude (everybody says it's one the beatles best songs...I disagree...besides that it's so overplayed that I got sick of it)

Paperback Writer (kind of a "sister" song of Day Tripper, no big deal about it)

Lucy In The Sky (I love this song but it gets too much praise...there are others better beatles psychedelic songs besides this one)

All You Need Is Love (never got the "hype" that this song has...it gets boring listening to it after a while)

Come Together (too overplayed)

Underrated:

Rain (Amazing song!)

I've Just Seen A Face

I'm Only Sleeping

The Night Before (it could have been a hit song!)

You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

If I Needed Someone

For No One

Hey Bulldog

Indeed, George's '67 tunes get kind of a bad rap, for whatever reason.  "It's All Too Much" gets my vote as most criminally underrated Beatles tune of all time.

Uughhhh, tell me about it. Whenever I go see a Beatles Tribute band I know it's time to leave when they start singing this & The Long And Winding Road.  paul-mccartney

2 great songs, but overplayed in my head, I guess~! a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

I saw a tribute band about a month ago, and they were smart to avoid those two songs.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.
