Playing the Help! album is great as well purely because it's just a great pop album none of the psychedelic amazing-weirdness of Sgt.Pepper's or Revolver which could overwhelm people.

 I might add the Hard Day's night album as well. If I could talk them into it, I would get them to watch the Anthology. When that first screened, I sat down to watch a bit, not knowing (or caring!) much about The Beatles - at the end of ten or eleven hours, I was in love!

Somewhere in this Forum there is a thread that asked this very question...which album(s) would you recommend to a non Beatles fan? I strongly recommended AHDN and H

Joe was the one who made me realize how far along John's songwriting had developed on A Hard Day's Night. John was a great pop songwriter...when he had to be.

As for HELP!, ASJr described it perfectly. it's just a great pop album. Oh BTW, I'm listening to it now.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Help! and AHDN are the best Beatles pop artists for any newbie. AHDN is Beatlemania in 30 odd minutes right from the off with no let up and I love Help! so much, such a blast with a bit more tinge of growing up in regards to the lyrics and musicianship. No idea why but I wouldn't personally use 1 as a Beatles intro to anyone.

The worst Beatle's songs (imo):

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Michelle

Getting Better

The Long And Winding Road

Don't Pass Me By

Rocky Raccoon

 

COVERS:

Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby

Act Naturally

Mr. Moonlight

 

I have read the other members and it's strange for me the mention of Revolution 9 (imo one of the BEST BEATLE'S SONGS). It's nice to be here, this is my first participation and sorry for my bad english...

^^ Michelle and Getting Better? Why? (I'm genuinely interested to know).

I agree about Mr Moonlight. Lennon's vocals are good, but they're utterly ruined by Macca's Hammond organ solo. It sounds like bathwater going down the plug.

I've said it before, but I think Rocky Raccoon is let down before it has a chance to kick off because of Paul's goofy spoken bit at the beginning. People hear that and go "oh god, this is silly", but really it's a wonderful, melodic little country-western morality tale with great lyrics.

Hmmm, I think the only Beatles song I actively dislike is "Savoy Truffle." There are others I could take or leave ("You Won't See Me"), or that have serious flaws (duff lyrics in "It's Only Love"), or that I don't think are good enough to go on an album ("Birthday"), but I don't begrudge them their existence and can even enjoy them once in a while. "Savoy Truffle" I would kill, kill with fire, if I could.

ETA: Hahahah, I didn't know George would pop up if I did a winking smiley! Sorry, George!!!
