I like the Anthology version of Mr. Moonlight, but I don't like the Beatles For Sale version.

I think covers also should not count.

I like "Her Majesty" -- nice smartass little ditty.

My pick for worst would include:

Cayenne

Blue Jay Way

I'm Only Sleeping

It's totally your opinion... but wow, the worst?  I just love that one so much.  

Worst for me would be "Mr Moonlight" hand down.  blue-meanie

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

WOAH. That's probably my favorite.. And Blue Jay Way is my jam sometimes when I'm stuck behind a train or something.. please dooon't bee long~~

In other news, I don't like calling certain songs 'the worst', but if I did I'd go for Wild Honey Pie.. Whoever thought that belonged on the White Album needs a talking too.. oh wait..

Well, Long Haired Lady and Holsety and Beatles in the Blood -- I just gave a listen to "I'm Only Sleeping" and I like it better than I thought I did from memory.  However, it still has enough flaws to make it a lesser song (but even a lesser song in the hands of the Beatles is superior to other people's stuff).

The flaws I hear are in some places in the melody where it just kind of fizzles out and I could imagine a better run of notes sung.  Also the engineering is not as carefully executed with all the intricacies and sophistication of their finer efforts.

This song almost sounds like a band trying to sound like the early psychedelic Beatles, but not quite succeeding.

 Beatles in the Blood:  "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?" may be pointless, but it's still a great song, wonderfully sung, and in its own little world a perfect creation of a tight little vehicle of churnin' burnin' rock.

I just re-listened to "Wild Honey Pie" after several years.  It's wonderfully mad, like an insane person with a glint in his eye.  Plus it has interesting chords, and instrumentation (guitar strings that sound aberrantly loosened.)

And it's only 63 seconds, for crying out loud.  Hardly an intrusion on a double album.

Worst song? That's hard. I think there's some boring stuff on Beatles For Sale which I don't remember well (I never listen to that album much).

But I absolutely hate Maggie Mae on Let It Be (ok, it's not an original song, it shouldn't count...). I mean, this obvious filler right after the title-track, it's so out of place... (not that Dig It is much better) :roll:

P.S. I don't dislike Wild Honey Pie. That's the great thing about the White Album, there's so much different stuff that makes it interesting, even if you don't exactly like the single song. I can forgive them for the occasional silly track (but only listening to the whole album, I wouldn't pick that track for a playlist) a-hard-days-night-paul-4

I just don't like Wild Honey Pie just like others don't Maxwell's Silver Hammer which I like cause of its madness. The Beatles wrote about serial killer and made it all bouncy I find it funny, but I can understand why people don't like it and think its another Paul granny song. I'm glad Wild Honey Pie isn't any longer than it is, but I still don't like it and think its pointless.

LHL, no sorry. But, your not a loser heart
