There is an older thread where a few people ranked the songs on this album http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....g-ranking/

I locked it and redirected people to this thread because the other thread was created in the songs section instead of the album section. @Pineapple Records, has your ranking changed?

1. A Hard Day's Night

2. I'll Be Back

3. Tell Me Why

4. Things We Said Today

5. I Should Have Known Better

6. You Can't Do That

7. Anytime At All

8. When I Get Home

9. Can't Buy Me Love

10. If I Fell

11. And I Love Her

12. I'll Cry Instead

13. I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

John has such strong material on this album. The title track is really one of their absolute bests. I'll Be Back has one of their greatest vocal melodies. "Yoooou, could find better things to dooo" sounds so great.

This is a really great album. It's sad it took many years until I discovered it. This is how I'd rank the song:

  1. You Can't Do That - This is probably my favourite of all their blueslike songs. I love John's vocals on it. It has a lot of repetition, but that doesn't bother me, because I really love the song.
  2. A Hard Day's Night
  3. I'll Cry Instead
  4. Can't Buy Me Love
  5. I'm Happy Just To Dance With You
  6. Things We Said Today
  7. I Should Have Known Better
  8. Any Time At All
  9. When I Get Home
  10. I'll Be Back
  11. And I Love Her - It's a nice song with a beautiful melody, but I think the half-step modulation (from E major to F major) ruins the song. I am glad the Beatles didn't use that type of modulation (where the same melody is repeated in a higher key) very often (the whole-step modulation in the last chorus of Penny Lane works perfectly though).
  12. If I Fell - I like the how the intro modulates from D sharp minor to D major in a very unusual way. The rest of the song doesn't affect me that much; it's mostly boring and seems to go on forever, I think. The harmonies are good though.
  13. Tell Me Why - I don't dislike this one. It just doesn't affect me that much.

 There isn't a single Beatles song I remotely dislike. There are however favorites and least favorites.

 

1.) I'll Be Back - Very underrated

 

2.) Any Time At All

 

3.) Things We Said Today

 

4.) I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

 

5.) If I Fell - 2009 remaster is terrible

 

6.) When I Get Home

 

7.) I'll Cry Instead - too short on the UK album

 

8.) And I Love Her - 2009 remaster is terrible

 

9.) Can't Buy Me Love

 

10.) Tell Me Why

 

11.) A Hard Day's Night - too overplayed

 

12.) You Can't Do That

 

13.) I Should Have Known Better

Those two songs are both in my top 20 favourite Beatles songs. Too overplayed? I would say Can't Buy Me Love is more overplayed.

4.) I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

I'm glad to see that you didn't rank this one too low.

 I love ranking albums like Abbey Road and the White Album because the songs are so diverse and fun to compare. With AHDN, Rubber Soul and Revolver, I hate having to rank and break apart such masterworks.

If I had been alive when AHDN was released I seriously would have lost my mind.

1. If I Fell - This song just makes me happy. That's something I need right now. The harmony is really something else. 

2. A Hard Day's Night - A classic. A fun, cheeky little song.

3. Can't Buy Me Love - It's popular for good reason. I never get tired of it.

4. Tell Me Why - Bouncey, with nice harmony. Also catchy.

5. I'm Happy Just To Dance With You - A sweet, cute song. Very catchy. 

6. I Should Have Known Better - There's just something about this song that I like. I'm not sure what it is, but it's good. 

7. I'll Be Back - Love the harmonies. John sounds so pleasing. 

8. And I Love Her - A very gentle tune. Not much to say about it.

9. Any Time At All - The chorus is a little weird to me, but I really like the rest. 

10. Things We Said Today - Great harmony here. It has an interesting composition. Sounds a bit too country for me in some parts.

11. I'll Cry Instead - Again, too country-esque for me. Decent vocals from John, though. 

12. When I Get Home - This is a good song, it just doesn't really stick out much for me. 

13. You Can't Do That - Not a huge fan of the lyrics or how John sounds here. 

Overall, not one of my favourite albums. There's not a single Beatles song I dislike, though.

I couldn't rank these because I don't know them all particularly well. I would have to say the best songs on this album are the title track, Can't Buy Me Love and You Can't Do That. YCDT is my favorite here because of that choppy solo and great riff.

I notice that, except for a couple folk, 'You Can't Do That' doesn't get much respect in this thread. FFS, the OP didn't list it at all. Seriously? a-hard-days-night-john-7

This Lennon rocker is among my top 10 Beatles tracks - top 5 on some days. But that's because I prefer their rockers far more than the slower ones. It is interesting to note that those who ranked 'YCDT' near or at the bottom, picked a slow song as their favorite. One of the coolest things to me about The Beatles is how varied there songs were - even on the same album. You could not pigeon-hole them into any one particular style, yet they conquered every style they attempted. That variety accounts for how popular they are to this day - virtually something for everyone.

I know I've expressed my affection for You Can't Do That elsewhere but not in this thread. It's a GREAT song, I love the riff, the cowbell and the drum fills in addition to the ripping vocal.
