Overrated has to be describing Across The Universe.

Underrated: "Rocky Racoon"-"I Saw Her Standing There"-"Hello Goodbye"-and pretty much everything on "A Hard Day's Night","Please Please Me", "Beatles For Sale", "Magical Mystery Tour" and a few songs from "Help!" too.

 

Overrated:No Beatles Song Is Overrated  a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

 

Overpopular:Well that's a whole different problem, overpopular beatles songs would be: "Yesterday","Come Together", "Let It Be", "Hey Jude", "Revolution", " In My Life".

 

*Special Mention* Revolution 9, as being absolute @$$.  a-hard-days-night-paul-11

I'd have to agree with the overpopular choices. With underrated, the only one I'd disagree with is Beatles For Sale. I've just never fallen in love with that album for some reason.

Welcome btw, cubbles4!

Can't agree more to that 😛

 

Underrated: Most B-sides are really underrated, but the most underrated IMO is Old Brown Shoe, Rain and Baby You're A Rich Man! Awesome bass lines, especially the first one, even though it's not played by Paul, I suppose? :(  

 

You Won't See Me (it's meant to be a "filler" song in Rubber Soul but to me it's really more than that)

 

If I Fell (quite a few people pointed this one out too)

 

Here, There And Everywhere (like the ooooooh and aaaaaaahs, and Ringo's drumming is really delicate in this song, this song is seldom credited though)

 

I Will (seldom hear anyone talking about this song either!)

 

Overrated/Overplayed:

 

Like what everybody else mentioned... Yesterday, Let It Be, Hey Jude, She Loves You, ... Perhaps these songs are way too well-known, that people will never fail to mention these songs when they talk about the Beatles :/

Here's one underrated song from each album. It would probably be more accutately labeled "what's one non-popular song from each album that you like"

 

PPM: There's a Place

WTB: Til There Was You

BFS: Every Little Thing

AHDN: Tell Me Why

Help: It's Only Love (John hated this 'filler' song but I love it)

RS: Run For Your Life (Another John claimed to hate)

Revolver: I'm Only Sleeping (one of my favorite 5 Beatles songs for some reason)

SPLHCB: She's Leaving Home

MMT: Blue Jay Way

White Album Disc 1: I'm So Tired

White Album Disc 2: Cry Baby Cry

Yellow Submarine: Only A Northern Song (although I love Hey Bulldog and All Together Now)

AR: Oh! Darling (It's really hard to pick a song thats underrated here, too many classics and won't pick apart the meledy so its basically Maxwells vs. Oh Darling vs. Because lol)

LIB: Dig A Pony

 

Singles: Don't Let Me Down and We Can Work It Out (I know We Can Work It Out is an 'A-side' but I feel for an A-side its underrated and probably overshadowed by it's B-side (Day Tripper)).

Oh man, I love Across The Universe.  But even when I'm sick of it, the thing that always draws me in is the little guitar riff at the beginning.

 

I forgot my overrateds.  Not one for every album tho:

 

Rain (I know a lot of people consider this underrated, but for some reason it just never caught on for me.  I mean its an ok song but its not one of my favorite 50 Beatles songs).

Doctor Robert

Tomorrow Never Knows

Birthday (although I suppose it's popularity rests on the occasion it celebrates)

The Long And Winding Road (never caught on with me, even the naked version)

Drive My Car

Fixing A Hole

Nowhere Man

Hello Goodbye

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