Me too.

Recently listened to this song again after years of avoiding it like the plague, and its not that bad actually… but it still makes my fingers itch for the "next song" button.

For the longest time, my least favorite was The Long And Winding Road.

But I have discovered that it has special meaning to a relatively new friend of mine. Coincidence or not, I am liking the song more and more.

That would make my new least favorite Good Night. Unless of course, you consider Revolution 9 a song – then all bets are off. To me, R9 is not a song, but rather just a track on The Beatles.

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

Come on Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da is at least a funny listen, I like when after Paul says the line about lending a hand, George goes "arm" and John goes "LEG!" It's a bit silly, but still has some funny bits in it. But my least favorite song of the Beatles is still You Like Me Too Much, I don't think it will be topped, although Matchbox is putting it to the test. a-hard-days-night-ringo-5

For me its been ruined by the cover versions. The song itself isn't so bad, but it brings to mind all the ruined versions, gives me a headache a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Obladi is awesome! I always burst into laughter after hearing the first words :"Desmond has his barrow in the market place…"

My personal dislikes are mostly their earlier/mid work…

 

1.Love Me Do (it goes on and on in my head and makes me want to jump on the wall)

2.Help  ("I'm going dooooooouuwwwn")

3.She loves you (yeah yeah yeah yeah)

4.Taxman(just sounds kiddish to me)

5.Helter skelter(too simple.too rough)

6.Strawberry Fields Forever(I agree with John. Could have been recorded better)

 

But Yellow submarine is really too hated… I love Ringo's voice in it. And the Finnish version is pretty hilarious,too (Yellow Icebreaker)

Pay 94% income tax and see if that statement still applies.

I understand his anger of course…And the song really isn't that bad. It just makes me annoyed 'cause i think the lyrics could have been a lot more complex and the critic ends up being pretty short lived, since he doesn't deal with the real reason taxes were paid. It's easy to say things like these coming from outside, I know.

Yeah, but they were getting lots of money even though they were only getting 5% of their income.

Sun king, just because minime doesn't like the song doesn't mean she doesn't understand it. Back off. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Well this one is easy for me. That would be 'Revolution 9' but if I had another choice it would probably be 'Mr. Moonlight' I never liked that song.

As far as 'Taxman' goes, I like the lyrics. The Beatles were always unique in the way they got a message out in their songs without saying to much and being very to the point. 

I agree with Mr. Sun King, they were paying far too much in taxes. I don't think things have changed that much in England even today. The tax rate is still very high.

The further one travels, the less one knows

I just can't rationally understand dislike for a song of this magnatude.

Fine, of this magnitude for non-music reasons

Revolution 9 has great "lyrics" tbh. Contrastingly, Michelle, Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da, and Yellow Submarine have nothing beyond the surface, and are therefore my least favourites.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

The Walrus brings up a good point, I think musically Michelle might be just about perfect in terms of sound, but the lyrics are rather forgettable as are some of the others named. I feel like you grow into lyrics, or grow with lyrics, more than you do music, like I used to not think Across The Universe was all that spectacular but after X amount of listens it finally hit me.  

I wonder what the Beatles peak was in terms of great music that you dig right away PLUS lyrics that are good the first time but keep getting better the more you listen to them…hmmm…..Strawberry Fields? Anyone have any guesses?

I say, A Day In The Life, but Strawberry Fields is a close second.
