I dont have 1 favourite song but there are definately songs that i have always loved and never not been in the mood to here (eg No Reply). There are the songs that have grown on me over the years to adore (eg Till There Was You). Songs that are fab when they come on but rarely sought out (Michelle). Ones that are good to hear and that its (eg Ask Me Why). And finally a very few number of songs that i would only ever listen to if played as part of the album, otherwise they are quickly skipped (Hold Me Tight).

 

Solo-wise i have favourites if asked. A whole lot admittedly.

For years i have hated the Spector Across The Universe (still do) but i heard it at its original speed and love that. And then there are outtakes and live tracks and demo's. It can get quite complicated.

I think its just because all of their music is SO good, that you cant pick one thats is the BEST. A hardcore Beatles fan can have a favorite Beatles era, but cannot pick a favourite song. Its like asking what your favourite food is. Its easy to pick out your favorite type of food, but the specific dish is really hard to pick. Also, your favorite Beatles song changes so much! As of now, for me, my favorite song is Michelle, but last week it was A Day In The Life. (probally becuase its the only Beatles song I can decently play on guitar.) So whenever anyone asks me what my favourite Beatles song is, I just reply "their early stuff". People dont understand how I can be such a big fan and not have a favourite song but thats just how it is.

I liked The Beatles before it was cool. (as in, I like all their music before 1965. I mean, I still like their later stuff but am very picky about what songs I like, while their older stuff I love it all. I am just not a fan of drugged out Beatles. Drugs scare me.)

a-hard-days-night-john-6 I thought you posted it, too. I realized you didn't only when I read your post.

 

Uhmm, I do have favorite songs, favorite periods and even dislike periods.  I don't listen to Across The Universe that much, but when I do, I'm always blown away. And I saw a book called "Across The Universe" today; it had a really nice cover but based on reading the blup ( I wonder if that's the right word) it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the Beatles.

 

But yeah, why not, a-hard-days-night-ringo-7 why cannot Beatles fans have favorites as well? Half of the songs appeal, in my opinion, comes from the attachment you have towards it.

Off topic: Whoa, Dr. Robert has my old avatar picture. I thought I'd posted this myself without knowing it. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

I was confused because I thought it was Doctor Robert, and that isn't the sort of thing he'd say.

Is this the book you mean? I work in a bookshop, and I've also seen a random romance novel called Lucy In The Sky; I made the same mistake when I first saw them both. paul-mccartney

I consider myself a hardcore fan, and I have a favourite Beatles song: Long Long Long.

When I come to think of it, I think "Long, Long, Long" was one of the first alternative rock songs.heartapple01

I believe it is very difficult to have a favourite Beatles song because of the diversity of their sound. Tomorrow Never Knows is completely psychedelic, while something like When I'm 64 or Honey Pie is vaudevillian. Helter Skelter is practically metal, while Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! is not possible to describe in words. I do as well obsess over certain albums for an average of a week or two. At the moment it is Beatles For Sale, but just last week it was Sgt. Pepper. Just my opinion, very good topic though.a-hard-days-night-john-1

heartWe had about the beatles in english at my school. And the teacher asked me for my favorite song. I looked down at my Abbey Road t-shirt, and asked to you have a lot of time?, or maybe a notebook?a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Yes, it's hard to choose one favourite. I think it's because the hard core fans (like me and many others) has read tu much about the beatels. And we see them as genious, in despitte that everyone else hate the songs.heart

 

But face it... They were amazing and to pick one song is'nt possiblea-hard-days-night-paul-11

I also can't say a favourite song, I love so many beatles songs, it's impossible for me. My favourite albums are Abbey Road and White Album but one year ago my favourite album was A hard days night so that changes

To say no hardcore fan can have a Favourite is wrong. My favourite is While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and I'm quite sure no one would call me not-hardcore.
