*calmly walks in* 

Yes. All of them. 

*calmly walks out* 

Just kidding! I find it hard impossible to call any Beatles song truly bad, but some are……….. not so good.

My personal every-single-track-rocks albums are AHDN , Rubber Soul , Revolver , and Abbey Road

Which I don’t mind at all because 1. the other songs are so beatlemaniacs_02_gif!!!!!! and 2. it’s the Fab freakin’ Four.

I do believe that last sentiment goes with every Beatles album ever.

Mine would be:

A Hard Day’s Night

and

Sgt. Peppers… Though “Within You Without You ”  could be the weakest track i can see the connection with the whole lonely hearts band thing, and it goes fine (kind of) with the indian stuff in the cover. And i like it, by the way…

Songs on albums which I would give a rating of under 5/10 which means I dislike them:

Please Please Me A Taste Of Honey
With the Beatles – nothing
A Hard Day’s Night – nothing
Beatles For Sale – nothing
Help ! – nothing
Rubber Soul – nothing
Revolver – nothing
Sgt. Pepper ‘s – When I’m Sixty-Four (although this might be able to scrape a 5/10 on a good day)
Magical Mystery Tour – nothing
The Beatles/White Album Wild Honey Pie , Honey Pie , Good Night
Yellow Submarine – nothing
Abbey Road – nothing
Let It Be Maggie Mae , Dig It
Let It Be … Naked – nothing

So yes every album apart from Please Please Me , Let It Be and The White Album (possibly Sgt. Pepper ‘s) all have songs that are a 5/10 at the worst which means every song is acceptable 🙂

Agree with ‘a hard days night’ ….absolute pop perfection.  ‘Rubber Soul ‘ and ‘revolver’ run it closest.

Yes, multiple.

Revolver , Sgt Pepper , AHDN , Magical Mystery Tour .

For me Abbey Road is ruined a bit by Maxwell’s Silver Hammer usually, sometimes I can listen to it.

For me, Help ! is damn near perfect. I love all the tracks from the movie, “Act Naturally ” is an absolute favorite, and “Dizzy Miss Lizzy ” is just too fun. The weakest tune on there to me is “I’ve Just Seen A Face ,” and that’s hardly a weak song.

 

AHDN is close, though I don’t love “Tell Me Why ” or “When I Get Home “, and I go in and out of liking “Things We Said Today “. This album might have been even better if more songs had been done like the Anthology version of “I’ll Be Back “.

 

Possibly my favorite album is Beatles For Sale , but even then, I always skip “Mr. Moonlight”.

 

Rubber Soul I almost always skip the Michelle /What Goes On /Girl trio, as I don’t like the feel of those as much as the rest of the album.

 

Revolver   I have to skip about for the songs I like

 

All the others aren’t really in my top albums list 😛

I take some comfort from the fact that every album has a moment or two which is (to me) less than stellar – it makes the consistent high quality of the rest seem even higher by comparison, and marks The Beatles down as human and fallible rather than supernatural.

@Ahhh Girl, can’t you do something about this blasphemy?  Why be a moderator if you can’t wield your awesome power for the public good?

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

They may be “Gods” in our eyes, but of course every album has a bad song or two!

Rubber Soul and Revolver for sure. Sgt. Pepper ‘s a close call but Within You, Without You drags on for a bit too long, same with Abeey Road and I Want You (She’s So Heavy). Shockingly, Yellow Submarine is also a close call but All Together Now ruins it.

Rubber Soul is my favourite album and it would be perfection bar What Goes On , the majority of the time I skip it.

Abbey Road ‘ is the only album I can want to hear a song, then work backwards and just listen to the entire album thru. Every other there is one track where I can stop and miss it out or not go back to the beginning (‘Revolver ‘ would be ‘Love You Too’, ‘Pepper’ – ‘Lucy’, I’m not that delightful with ‘DMC or ‘NM’ on ‘Rubber Soul ‘).

Same thoughts here, but it depends on what mood I’m in. Most of the time I just go straight thru and am able to enjoy WGO, but sometimes (if I’m on a time crunch or just want to listen to my favorites) I’ll skip it. 

While I want to say very badly that I adore all the songs on Abbey Road , there are days where Octopus’s Garden and I Want You just don’t do it for me. Sgt Pepper also comes very very close but, again, it depends on my mood whether or I want to listen through BFTBOMK. 

Surprisingly, though, I find A Hard Day’s Night  to be in an album that I never skip a track on.

Love Me Do ” is a bad, bad ‘song’.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
