Mr Moonlight (even Johns vocals cant save such a lame recording)

A Taste Of Honey

Hold Me Tight (if ever there was a song they should have ditched this was it. A piece of garbage up there in the same league as That Means A Lot. I do wonder what the rejected versions sounded like if this is the best outcome they could come up with.)

Good Night

Sgt Pepper/With A Little Help From My Friends (Pepper gets going with Lucy, can easily skip these two)

Only A Northern Song

Its All Too Much

And a special mention for Whats The New Mary Jane. The one beatle song i avoid, not even the alternate versions can improve it and if it had never been recorded then nobody would have cared. Nothing redeems it.

 

Personally i dont go down the Revolution 9 path as it was never intended to be a song, its a sound collage. Scared the living daylights out of me when it came thru my earphones for the first time what with all that speaker crossfading, still very disorientating when played on my ipod.

I didn't blink when you said ADITL. It's my wife's least favorite. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

If a song doesn't full out rock, she doesn't care for it. When we listen to Beatles music together, she always starts with the Please Please Me album. I usually lose her at Rubber Soul. Different strokes...

Her fav is T&S.a-hard-days-night-john-4

It's pure, evil elevator music to me.

 

Whoa, *17*

It's kind of hard for me to dislike songs like Ob La Di & Yellow Submarine as they're the ones I sort of grew up with, singing along in the car as a kid or whatever. I know they're banal and meaningless but you just gotta love 'em.

I see what you mean - I feel the same way with Submarine. I didn't know the other song until I was older and had developed some sort of "musical awareness".

Also it seems Submarine has a little tongue-in-cheek sort of feeling, which I miss in Obla-Di Obla-Da.
