Does anyone else feel that this list is terrible?

Granted, they had enough good taste to put "I Want To Hold Your Hand" second, but "Sexy Sadie" at #93 and "Hey Bulldog" at #81?  Those are the two best basslines McCartney ever wrote!

The omission of "It's All Too Much" only reinforces my belief that it's the group's most all-time criminally underrated song.  ahdn_george_05  Glad to see "Long, Long, Long," "All I've Got To Do" and "Two of Us" made it, though.

Hmm I think that's a pretty good list. Except for the last 2 albums. That was quite random.

 

Tbh, I never understood why Thriller makes #1 on so many Best Album lists. Is it really THAT brilliant and wonderful?

It's a very good album, and was a groundbreaking pop record.  But much in the same way that people now suggest that the soundtrack to "The Bodyguard" is some amazing work of art, it's popularity has been inflated by MJ's death.

"Double Fantasy" still rides that wave, if you think about it. 

But Thriller's place in pop history was cemented well before MJ's death. I've had a copy since the album came out, and I was instantly impressed by the fact that, unlike most pop albums at the time, it had no filler songs. It's still one of the few I can listen to from beginning to end without skipping.

So...anyway...back to the Beatles list. It's just "meh" if you ask me, some of the reasons being they put Within You Without You at 96, Rain at 88, Hey Bulldog at 81, Dear Prudence at 63, Helter Skelter at 52, etc...oh well, I guess a lot of it is a matter of opinion. I do agree with what they chose for #1, though.

Back on topic!

"Within You Without You", while definitely an interesting song, is no reason to leave "Lovely Rita" off the list.

I might have missed it, but I'm pretty sure "Eight Days A Week" was not on that list! I also wished they had put in "Another Girl" (just one of my own personal favorites) And "Lovely Rita" also deserved a spot on there. I still think "Yesterday" is the most overrated Beatles song, and I'm not a huge fan of "Mother Nature's Son". And "Got To Get You Into My Life" probably shouldn't have been over great songs like "If I Needed Someone" or "Helter Skelter". But then again, this is all just my opinion.a-hard-days-night-george-3
