I couldn't whittle a list down to ten.

Just some comments having read through most posts in this thread.

Though I like 'Mary Jane and You know my Name......I admit, I'm amazed at the popularity of Revolution 9.  I'm happy for John. I've given it 40 odd years to grow on me and it hasn't one bit....I must try to listen to the whole thing through again.

Good to see, 'And Your Bird Can Sing', 'Hey Bulldog', and 'No Reply' feature well. And it's nice to know I'm not the only soppy sod that secretly holds a special place in their hearts for 'Martha My Dear'

 

I have a playlist on one of my iPods....... John V Paul...... a personal 'Best Of' which includes their solo work. 

 

What would I do without Lennon and McCartney........And Harrison......Good old Ring.

Finally if I only had one Beatles song on my desert Island, because there simply isn't a best it would be, 'The End' The 'Fab Four's' last hurrah. Four equals having fun without Yoko in the studio. That would set off enough happy memories to have me whistling and humming through every other one of their songs.

118 post before 'Yesterday' gets a mention in dispatches …………and I think not counting this one only 5 mentions in 161 posts.

I'm not even trying to like Revolution 9. I simply can't listen to it and I won't torture myself by doing it anyway.

Atlas said, "118 post before 'Yesterday' gets a mention" (welcome Atlas)

I agree that it's somewhat surprising that the most covered of all Beatle songs hardly gets a mention. Perhaps it has to do with it hardly being a "Beatle" song. When they played it in concert, it was Paul alone on the stage, and no other Beatle participated in the recording.

[By the way, regarding the off-topic French issues, I speak French in case anyone has French-related questions]

Just to put it up because of how much i love it and would be in my Top 10 Beatles songs live (technically the title of the thread doesnt say it has to be studio only), I'm Down from the same concert as the above Yesterday. A total, utter and complete fun shambles of a performance.

Good point mja6758, yes I am thinking of the concerts where Paul plays "Yesterday" by himself. Is there any other Beatle song every played in concert by just one Beatle?

I'm Down is definitely one of my favourite live songs by them. It always looked like they had a lot of fun
