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.

FoolishWalrusPaul, do you happen to be Dutch by any chance? Or from around there somewhere, Germany or Belgium or anything like that? You've got such a Dutch way of constructing sentences.

I'm Danish. Alot of people confuse us with dutch people. :)

How could you know, Linde, that he/she wasn't English? I would never have guessed. I think the level of English you two both have is really quite impressive. You should feel very proud of yourselves :D

It's just the way he/she constructs a sentence. I guess the grammar may be alike. My friend who is originally from Norway and who lives there now too also said that once. 

Thank you for that, that's a great compliment! :D It frustrates me to no end when I can't figure out a word or when I've written a sentence in English and I just know it's incorrect, but I can't seem to find out what's wrong about it. 

You shouldn't see my German though. People always think Dutch people are fluent in German or something, but I don't understand half of it :X

I'm in my fourth year of French and sometimes the same thing happens, that I say or write something and I know it's not correct, but I have no idea how else to put it. Make me want to lob my books at the wall half the time! I used to be the same with Spanish too, though I speak that considerabely better, I think.

I dropped French in the 10th grade, after 4 years. The first three years were a piece of cake, but in the 10th grade it all became too hard for me, especially the audio tests. I couldn't understand ANYTHING. That's when I decided to drop it. I hated it too. Best idea ever, gave me a lot more spare time. Time I could spend on…maths -___-''

Thanks! I really appreciate that. This is also aimed at others: If you spot any mistakes in my posts, please inform me. I won't be offended. I just want to improve my English.

I tried French 3 times in undergrad Uni when you had to have a language to get a BA.  Luckily they dropped the requirement or I probably never would have got my degree :)

Aargh – so off topic.  Lemme see:

Nowhere Man, Across The Universe, Norwegian Wood, Here Comes The Sun, Helter Skelter, Fool on the Hill, Eleanor Rigby, For No One, If I Needed Someone, The End!

Ask me again tomorrow and the list may change.

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]

Afraid it wasn't, you're thinking of Ed Sullivan and Blackpool Night Out. When they played it live in 1966, they'd come up with a band arrangement. This is all four Beatles performing Yesterday in Germany…

I prefer the versions with ''just'' Paul (the just being between brackets because of the backing tape they use). The full band arrangement doesn't really work IMO. It's a bit messy and just doesn't suit the song.

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
