My top 4 I'm pretty sure on. The rest can fluctuate with my mood. There's no bad track on this album.
- Strawberry Fields Forever -- Great concept, lyrics and the song develops throughout.
- I Am The Walrus -- One of the most unique psychadelic tracks. I love it.
- Hello, Goodbye -- A great catchy rock single.
- Penny Lane -- Paul's cheerful nostalgia at it's best
- All You Need Is Love -- Kind of an old school sound, very pleasant.
- Magical Mystery Tour -- This one is growing on me. Nice energetic opening.
- Baby, You're a Rich Man -- Love the synthesizer effect with the percussion.
- The Fool On The Hill -- A good melody with some offkey singing.
- Blue Jay Way -- George goes psychedelic too. Not bad.
- Your Mother Should Know -- A good soulful song. Feels like it's missing something though.
- Flying -- It's a good piece. Just not up to the quality of others.

Might as well give this a go.
- Strawberry Fields Forever /I Am The Walrus -- Tied as I cannot put one above the other. Two of the greatest pieces of music ever created.
- Baby, You're a Rich Man - Gorgeous. Totally jolly and has one of the weirdest instruments I've ever heard. I get totally caught up in the fun of the song and by the end am joining in.
- The Fool On The Hill - By far Paul's best track on the album (not that its saying much considering the contenders). I really like it tho not too sure why - there are some really beautiful moments.
- Blue Jay Way - Starts off a total dirge, Ringo gets bored and starts playing the drums to entertain himself, the track improves significantly, love it by the end.
- All You Need Is Love - When in the mood its a very good song, when not -> meh.
- Flying - Nice tune. It comes and goes pleasantly without making much impact.
- Hello, Goodbye - Ringo's drumming, the backing vocals and the coda save it from being a total waste of time.
- Magical Mystery Tour - It exists, not much else to say.
- Penny Lane - Have never got the attraction of it. Everything about goes over my head.
- Your Mother Should Know - As said elsewhere it last 150 seconds yet I'm bored after 30 seconds and I desperately want it to end after 90 seconds; Paul begins singing "da da da da da" 105 seconds in and it plummets into being deeply irritating. It's just seriously dull, the whole damn thing, never doing anything, even the backing vocals are boring. If this is what Paul wrote for the 'Our World' TV special then the whole world should be delighted John came up with 'All You Need Is Love '.

This is not easy but I'll give it a try:
1) Strawberry Fields - one of the greatest songs by The Beatles
2) I Am The Walrus - brilliant song and the lyrics are so random and fun!
3) Penny Lane
4) Fool On The Hill - it's such a beautiful song!
5) Hello Goodbye - It was one of the first songs by the Beatles that I ever liked
6) Blue Jay Way - kind of boring but not as bad as some people say it is
7) MMT - It could have been a better song, I dunno
8) Baby, You're A Rich Man - I like the bass line and that's it
9) All You Need Is Love - overrated in my opinion
10) Your Mother Should Know - it's dull
11) Flying - I don't care much about it

1. Strawberry Fields Forever . Pure genius. There's nothing else like it.
2. I Am The Walrus . Same as above.
3. Penny Lane . Paul at his best. Fantastic modulation and trumpet. Possibly better than Walrus.
4. The Fool On The Hill . Beautiful track with great instrumentals.
5. All You Need Is Love . Bum ba da da da dum
6. Blue Jay Way . Very well executed track. LOVE the cello malfunction at the end
7. Magical Mystery Tour . One of the great album openers.
8. Hello Goodbye . Fantastic upbeat bounce from Paul.
9. Baby Your A Rich Man. Strange vibraphones to compliment a morality ditty.
10. Flying . Not overly offensive. Plays its part in the album.
11. Your Mother Should Know . Bland and unexciting.

1. "All You Need Is Love " - quite possibly one of the greatest songs ever written . . ever
3. "Hello Goodbye " - it was hard for me to put this over #4 but it's one of the greatest ever, is it not?
4. "I Am The Walrus "
5. "Penny Lane "
6. "Flying " - has to have a high ranking in regard to the greatest instrumental tracks of all-time . . it's so perfect that I think it was rather intimidating to approach for them as songwriters. In a fantasy of mine a version with a vocal is approach
7. "Blue Jay Way "
8. "Magical Mystery Tour "
9. "Your Mother Should Know "
10. "Fool on the Hill"
11. "Baby You're A Rich Man "

1 Strawberry Fields Forever - one of the coolest, smartest, and most beautiful songs ever
2 Penny Lane -
4 Fool On The Hill
6 Flying - The descending guitar lines at the beginning always blow my mind
8 Your Mother Should Know - I love the intro, the rest in pretty standard
10 All You Need Is Love - Sorry everybody, im not a huge fan of this one, although I love the slogan
11 Hello Goodbye - almost unbearable until the outro.

This is one of my favourites!
3. Blue Jay Way . Love the creepiness, effects, drumming, that stupid cello.
4. Fool On The Hill, although the bit where all the 5000 fecking flutes play together gives me a headache.
8. Flying . It makes me laugh, not sure why.
9. Magical Mystery Tour .
10. Your Mother Should Know . Never listen to this one, not sure why.

To me this is one of the best Beatle-tracks ever. It's weird, fun and surreal. Love the production on it! I still discover new things every time I play it. Guess where I got my username from 😀
Equally as good as ITW. Wonderful lyrics and production.
3. Blue Jay Way .
This track is perhaps one of the darkest Beatle-tracks. Really Spooky tune especially with the backward-vocals.
Just love the tune. Really upbeat and catchy. Paul bass-playing really make the song.
I see that few of you like this one, but I really like it! It's perfect for the movie-sequence and it has a really cool groove to it. Love the strange ending and fade-out. Really Psychedelic.
It's naive and cute and a very simple song. I like it! The ending and fade-out is great.
7. Penny Lane
Overrated? Atleast to me. Never really catched it. I like the Piccolo-trumpet on it though.
kinda like something that should have been on SPLHCB , but not good enough.
It's ok. I can dig it.
Never quite liked this one. The flute is horrible!
When John sneered about Paul and his granny-music this is the track that comes to mind! It should'nt be on this album i think. It sticks out like a sore thumb!

Eh, I'll give it a go:
1. I Am The Walrus /Blue Jay Way - I love both tracks so much; I can't choose just one! On one hand, IAtW is a whimsical psychedelic masterpiece, and I can most definitely agree with mmm in the sense that it is one of the greatest pieces of music ever created. On the other, BJW is yet another psychedelic masterpiece (at least I see it that way), and I just love the violin and the backwards vocals!
2. Baby, You're a Rich Man - A lovely and catchy track that rarely gets boring for me!
3. Your Mother Should Know - I should have you know that I really enjoy Paul's "granny music", and YMSK is no exception. I seem to be one of very few who actually enjoys this one.
4. Strawberry Fields Forever - There's no doubt that this one is an absolute masterpiece, though for some odd reason it doesn't appeal to me as much as it does to a good majority of you.
5. Magical Mystery Tour - A real foot-tapper! I love the harmonies, the slower bit nearing the mid-end of the song, and the sound of the bus whizzing by.
7. Flying - A good instrumental that I think would probably be best put to use being listened to on an aircraft of some kind.
8. All You Need Is Love - An iconic song with a great message, though I usually have to be in the mood to want to listen to it.
9. Hello, Goodbye - Though it is a good tune, it gets a tad boring after a few listens and I don't listen to it that often.
There's my quick take of it. Be aware that this list is undoubtedly subject to change, but I'd be quite prepared for that eventuality.

11. Baby You're A Rich Man - I just cannot get into this song. I can listen to it but I just don't get excited about it.
10. Your Mother Should Know - Not a bad song but a bland recording. I wish they had of done more with the production then it could have been better.
9. All You Need Is Love - I like the message of this song but I don't listen to it very often as I have to be in the mood for it.
8. Blue Jay Way - Creepy song but I kind of like it but I have to be in the mood for it as I can get bored of it sometimes.
7. Hello Goodbye - This is a good pop song but I have to be in the mood for it. There is a few songs like this on this album for me.
6. Flying - I like this song. It's good to have on in the backround and a part of me wishes that it went longer. I know a longer mix is out there, hopefully we get an official release of it someday.
5. Magical Mystery Tour - This song proves as a good opener for the album/film/ep that it came from. Much like the title track for Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
4.The Fool On The Hill - I like this track. I like the chorus and the recorder
1. Strawberry Fields Forever - Another great song from John, possibly only of his best. Great lyrics and really interesting song arrangements.
