Wow, what a tough question......!  Truly, I like ALL of their songs (as though I have to give this crowd a disclaimer! Ha!)  The ever-fluctuating list at the moment is:

Money--Like the song, but there's something unsettling about the irony of it....

Words Of Love--Love Buddy Holly but, well, yeeeeesh...

What You're Doing--Close call on this one.

Bad Boy--I mean, it's THE BEATLES, so how bad can it be?  Still.....<flush!>

Dizzy Miss Lizzy--I think I heard this one too many times or something....

Hold Me Tight--I know I'm just imagining that Paul's singing really flat towards the end......

Run For Your Life--Always gave me the creeps but the harmonies are cool....

Yellow Submarine--Sorry, I've heard it WAY too many times; WAY TOO MANY TIMES!

Dr. Robert--I "like" it sort of but it just doesn't seem up to par with the other work they were doing then.

Maxwell's Silver Hammer--I don't skip over it; I just don't really like it that much....

So, that's my 10......blue-meanie

Hmmm, that's pretty hard. But here it is. Also these are in no specific order. Just the ones I don't really seem to feel.

Revolution 9- Something about that songs just gives me the creeps. I normally can not listen to the whole thing without going into like a panic mode. I listened to it the whole way through 2 times and I had to focus on the guys voices to get through it. *shudders*

Mr. Moonlight- I just don't like it. A very very poor cover by them.

Dig It- It seems to have no point at all. Just some random rambling singing by them.

Wild Honey Pie- Same as above

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill- Another one I just don't really like. But it may be because of Yoko's backing vocals. Weak lyrics too.

Piggies- My least favorite Harrison song. Not very good, seems to have no point either.

Rockey Raccon- Don't like the sound. But I"m not the biggest fan of country either.

Why Don't We Do It In The Road- Repetitive. Another no point song.

Don't Pass Me By- Instruments aren't very good, Ringo's singing isn't very good either. Really the only part of that song I like is the fiddle.

Well that's all I can think of off the top  of my head. But this list will probably change in the future.

whooah, pretty anti-White Album. and Piggies is about the greed of man, so does have a point.

Let's see...

I'm sorry to say that I only own Revolver, Abbey Road Anthology 1 and bits from the Red and Blue Albums, so I can't agree or disagree with some of your choices since I haven't actually heard the tracks...(Hopefully I'll get the remasters come the holidays). Another note: the quality of many of my recordings is absolutely appalling (think record player--to tape--to computer 30 years later). So this list will most likely be altered once I hear the 'real' tracks!

 

But here's what I think, as of 11/5/2010 (different time-zone, fyi):

You'll be Mine: I just don't like the vocals on here. Everything about this song doesn't feel very Beatley.

 

Lady Madonna: Used to really hate this song; now I actually (maybe) like it. But it just doesn't feel as well done as their other songs.

 

Dizzy Miss Lizzy: I know it's cover and all, but this just sounded like they were trying to imitate every other Rock 'n Roller; I much prefer their distinctive sounds and those beautiful harmonies from the earlier years to their covers.

 

Kansas City/Hey Hey Hey: Just seemed like an awful lot of shouting without too many interesting details in the music.

 

The Night Before: Never really caught my attention.

 

Rocky Raccoon: Am I allowed to put this on here if I've only heard it once? This song just struck me as rather silly, and I didn't like the overall style.

 

Her Majesty: This is only on here because I am seriously running out of least favorites.... 23 seconds of a silly and sweet little ditty that didn't make a dent (pothole?)  in Abbey Road

 

Lend me your Comb: I find the subject manner very frivolous and altogether goofy. But then again, this was still the early years, when they were trying to project this kind of image. Still, if I'm looking for Beatle silliness, I'll start playing "Boys, what I was Thinking..." or their cover of "Twist And Shout".

 

Hello Little Girl: This song creeped me out just a little bit. First of all, the name alone makes it sound like some sort of stalker song, and hearing them sing it over and over again to music is just so disconcerting. Maybe it was there way of turning the tables on the obsessive fans...

 

How Do You Do It: If I recall correctly, this one wasn't actually written by them (George Martin...I think). It's pretty dull, repetitive and sounds like every other safe and boring song from family-friendly boybands of the early sixties. Come on, where are the rockin' Beatles that I have come to know and love? Gimme "Shout!" and "You Can't do That" and "I Saw Her Standing There"!

 

Yes, I do realize I have a thing against Anthology 1. And yes, I am planning on buying the remasters.

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

It's just that I'm with George Martin that they should have just done one disc with it. It has a lot of pretty short and kind of pointless songs on it, but it also of couse has some gems. Happieness is a Warm Gun, Blackbird, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Julia, and I Will to name a few. But it really would have worked better as one disc.

Hmm, that sounds like a nice new twist on the old "prune the White Album" game: instead of a full LP's worth, eliminate 15 minutes worth of material to make a 79-minute album that'll fit on a single compact disc!

I think Tomorrow Never Knows and Baby You're a rich man are two of the BEST !

 

You can't count cover versions, Anna is a brilliant old soul song, Til there was you is from the Music man, Money is a great version writeen by Berry Gordy and Janie Bradford.

 

My least fave beatles songs are (can't find 10)

Blue Jay Way

Run For Your Life (because the lyrics are so lennon violent)

You aren't alone. Two of our posters re-wrote the song independently from one another.

Reading through this post, I think Zig said it well that this list would change in a few months. Since June, I rather enjoy Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Revolution 9, so I'm not sure what my least favorites would be.

Definitely Matchbox, just awful. The two Harrisongs off of Help just are never going to grow on me, neither will Tell Me What You See and I'll add Dizzy Miss Lizzy to the list. Interesting that I haven't seen anyone mention Slow Down, although John is pretty funny on that song. I don't really like Piggies, I just don't, sounds too arrogant. And Two of Us, yuck. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Why Don't We Do It In The Road? - I find it rather annoying how there's only like twelve words in it, which are repeated too many times
One After 909 - I'm not a big fan of the Let it Be version, although I do like the version on Anthology 1
Wild Honey Pie - I don't really think this one needs an explanation..
Dig It - (See above)
Flying - It doesn't sound very Beatley, does it?
Matchbox - I don't really know why
Dizzy Miss Lizzy - This song just annoys me, and is actually the only one I skip when I'm listening to my iPod
Revolution 9 - I like the beginning of it, though
Mr. Moonlight - (See above)
Boys - (Sorry Ringo)
