Revolver is definitely one of my favourite album, it also contains my favourite Beatle song.

So this is my top 3:

 

3. I’m Only Sleeping (very underrated!!!)

2. Here There And Everywhere                                                                                                                                                                      

1. For No One (such a beautiful song, also very underrated!!)

 

Very hard to choose between “I’m Only Sleeping ” and “your bird can sing.” These are my favourites now, but it changes every so often, it also depends on my mood.

My favourite songs from the album are “For No One “, “I´m Only Sleeping” and “Eleanor Rigby “. It would be impossible for me to pick just one song as all of them are incredible.

Hey @samiam! Welcome to the forum!

You might want to introduce yourself here.

 

As for my favorite tune from Revolver … a tie between everything? I love every song on this album, so I don’t really want to call any one the worst or best. However I have been really getting into Tomorrow Never Knows lately.

If you're lonely (or not!), you can talk to me. .....Hey! Are you a new member on this fine forum and don't know where to go to introduce yourself?
Well, you can do it here! Dig it?

Whoah, that’s a real toughie! Hmmm . . .a-hard-days-night-george-4

I would have to say Here, There, and Everywhere. It’s so simple yet so impacting! When you listen to it, you can’t just listen to it just once. My next favorite is Eleanor Rigby (It is definitely a masterpiece, but I’m not really a fan of story songs which is why it’s at number two for me). Then Got To Get You Into My Life (wow, Paul seriously worked his butt for this album!) and finally Taxman

Speaking of Taxman , have you ever heard of the version where the backing singers are just like, “Anybodygotabitofmoneyanybodygotabitofmoneyanybodygotabitofmoney?” instead of the usual, “Aha Mr. Wilson, Aha Mr. Heath!” The first time I heard it, I busted out laughing!

She Said She Said – I really dig the guitar on it.

And Your Bird Can Sing – Same as above ^. Have you guys heard the Anthology version of this song? They were giggling so much and I loved it.

Oh, this is soooo difficult!… The first place is not difficult, but the rest… But I’m going to try…

1 – Here, There And Everywhere (so beautiful, so sweet, so melodious, so romantic, so… A masterpiece!… More than a masterpiece!)  and  Eleanor Rigby (well, also more than a masterpiece!)

2 – For No One

3 – I’m Only Sleeping

Oh, I’m going to stop here, top 3… Because it’s too hard, the other songs are excellent and I can’t decide between some of them. This is actually one of my favourite albums.

My favourite?………That’s easy.

 

Not saying it’s the BEST but it’s one of my all time favourites……….And my desert island disc for sure. It’s John Lennon ! It’s the 100 percent all-in-back-up from the others making him a better John Lennon . It’s urgent, it walks, Hey Bulldog ‘ishly  towards you …..The melody, the guitars and harmonies cascade and tumble over each other in a way that only the Beatles at the very top of their collaborative game could do. It’s an unpretentious pop song…. but unlike any other pop song ever heard before or since. It’s an unsurpassed masterpiece of simple voice, guitar and drum.

 

On a fine… fine album, full of creative, tuneful and more accessible songs….. it slowly crept up through the competition to become my personal number 1 for the album.

 

It’s the second track on side two by-the-way.

Three way tie: 

  • For No One (The French Horn Solo alone gets it.)
  • I Want To Tell You (George’s best song ever? IMHO)
  • She Said, She Said (John’s best track on the album)

Least fav on that album? Yellow Submarine

There's more here than meets the eye.

My favourite song on Revolver is, unquestionably, Here There And Everywhere . Bliss is too weak a word for the sparkling, yet utterly peaceful feeling it gives me EVERY TIME I hear it, and I’ve only heard it, oh, 6,000 times. Of course, if you want to get technical, my favourite song on Revolver is also… um… the whole album… 

paul-mccartney I LOVE THIS ALBUM!!!!!!!!!!!!! heart

I just listened to Revolver again today, and I realised anew that my favourites are (in order of track-listing): 

#1: Here There And Everywhere  

#2: Taxman , Eleanor Rigby , I’m Only Sleeping , She Said She Said , Good Day Sunshine , And Your Bird Can Sing , For No One , Got To Get You Into My Life

#3: Love You To , Yellow Submarine , Tomorrow Never Knows

As someone who has a lot of trouble ranking songs that are all great, you’ve echoed my sentiments quite well :)   I would demote GTGYIML to #4 (don’t know why I never cared much for that song – I recognize it as quality work but aesthetically it doesn’t please me as well as the other songs). MIt’s still better than Doctor Robert though ;) [which I assume, not having been mentioned, defaults to worst song on the album for just about all of us). Maybe because for me, it was a hit in 1976 which was not the best year of my childhood (is being 13 anyone’s best year of their childhood?).

I also might (just might) put Eleanor Rigby up at #1 with Here, There, and Everywhere.  Funny how much I like the only song that none of them played on. Upon further consideration, I might put And Your Bird Can Sing up there too.  Oh hell, let’s just say they’re all my favorite except Doctor Robert and GTGYIML.  It is my favorite album of theirs (currently) but I’ve really been liking Rubber Soul lately.
