I guess you got me there! I thought it was okay on Paul's album but not really a good Beatles number. I was a little sauced when I wrote that last night. No offense meant, of course.

I think I'm a fan of every Beatles song. I love Maxwell's Silver Hammer (See username), it's the first song I'm learning on the drums, Helter Skelter is pretty good now, but at one point it was my favorite song. I like when it say Honey Pie in Wild Honey Pie, and I love Only A Northern Song. I just can't find one I don't like. Oh, and Yellow Submarine, Honey Don't, Don't Pass Me By, and Octopus' Garden are great, I LOVE RINGO! All Together Now & It's All To Much are GREAT!


 
I am with you Hammer! What about Tomorrow Never Knows and She Said She Said??

 

Tomorrow Never Know is actually quite genius, the drumming beat is simple, yet awesome. As for She Said She Said, I've heard it like a hundred times, but I still love when it comes on. Also I didn't mention that I like Revolution 9, not really the song, but I like the lyrics, especially backwords.

When I Twish And Shout, it makes the Girl say "What Goes On?", and than I say, "I do this Here, There and Everywhere", and than she finishes by saying "Honey Don't".

Probably a year ago, I posted on this forum that 'Hey Bulldog' was one of my least favorite Beatles songs. 

 

It is now my favorite song.  Fabulous.  I absolutely love it. 

 

(That having been said, I doubt I will undergo a similar conversion experience with regard to 'Only A Northern Song.')

I'm going to have to say Revolution 9. There is something about that song that creeps me out, I can hardly even listen to it actually.

A little while ago and I would have said Revolution 9 or Maxwell's Silver Hammer, but now they're starting to warm up to me for some reason, so not them. Other than that, I don't really listen to a bit of their early stuff, also The Long And Winding Road really doesn't do anything for me. I don't think Rocky Raccoon is anything special.

Give it time, it will grow on you, most likely when you're listening late at night, and you think the band is not quite right, but they are, they're just playing like that. a-hard-days-night-john-7
 
I listened to Past Masters 1 for the first time in forever and there are some pretty forgettable songs, like Slow Down and Thank You Girl. But my least favorite song is You Like Me Too Much, it's just not very good.

I am going to have to cite songs recorded after 1966. Before that, face it, The Beatles were pure pop. Even George Martin bemoaned (in "The Making of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" documentary) that "Love Me Do" was the only good song the band had presented him with between '64 and '66, and it wasn't that good. But that's me 'umble opinion as well.

 

"Honey Pie" and "When I'm 64" bugged me. What was up with Paul and his infatuation with the whole Cole Porter/Hoagy Carmichael stuff? It was so irritating to hear these songs in an era that was supposed to be rebelling against that other era.

 

"Wild Honey Pie" tried so hard to sound Black, that it was almost racist. I take it back. It was racist.

 

"Within You/Without You". Sigh. I had heard better Indian music played by amateurs in 2nd Avenue Indian restaurants.

 

Everything from the Yellow Submarine album, especially the title tune. blue-meanie

 

The Long and Winding and Whiny and Sappy and Boring and Indulgent and Overproduced Road.

 

'Revolution No. 9". Oh, wait, we're talking about Beatles' songs, not Beatles' poo-poo.

Wow, you really are a "cranky. crabby, cantankerous curmudgeon"! Lotta contentious statements there, but I totally agree with your opinion of "Long-Winded Road", and yeah, the psudo-minstrel routine in "Wild Honey Pie" really irritates me too. Wanting to sound like Little Richard is fine; Al Jolson in blackface, not so much.

Oh, I'm cranky, etc. -- but hopefully not offensive. I'm just honest. I love the Beatles too much to be diplomatic about their stuff.

 

Thanks for the welcome! I'm really enjoying this place.

Personally I love Your Mother Should Know and Fixing A Hole
I dislike Rev. 9, Honey Pie and Savoy Truffle

Wow, I'm very sure that George Martin quote does not exist, since it would mean he would consider "Love Me Do" (from 1962, btw!)  better than ANYTHING (!!) on "AHDN", "BFS", "Help", "RUBBER FRIGGING SOUL", "EFFING REVOLVER"!! You notice yourself how ridiculous that sounds.george-martin
 

And please do elaborate: How excactly is "Tomorrow Never Knows" pure pop?

I also disagree STRONGLY with all your other statements apart from your dislike of "Revolution 9".

The George Martin Quote was this
"When I first met them, They really couldn't write a good song. Love Me Do was the best they could do. The way they blossomed as songwriters was…breathtaking"
