I Will is perhaps my favourite Paul song, and is also beautiful.

  6. Martha My Dear – Such a presh song. I used to sing it to my dog.

seeing as this thread’s getting bumped and my ranking from last year looks kinda wrong to me now, I’ll give this another go!

from best to worst:

  1. Dear Prudence
  2. Helter Skelter
  3. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
  4. I’m So Tired
  5. Happiness Is A Warm Gun
  6. Long, Long, Long (I love the kind of haunted sound this one has, I just wish it had an extra verse or chorus or something ’cause I think it’s a bit too short)
  7. Martha My Dear
  8. Revolution 9 (I felt bad last time about not having this in my Top 10, fixed that this time around! it’s always been one of my favourite parts of the album, and I consider it one of the most important as well)
  9. Yer Blues
  10. Back In The U.S.S.R.
  11. Sexy Sadie (I think this is the song that’s jumped up the most compared to my last ranking, idk why I slept on it before)
  12. I Will
  13. Cry Baby Cry
  14. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (I’ve kind of flipped flopped between liking this song and hating it; it wouldn’t be The White Album without it, in any case)
  15. Julia (I feel bad ranking this one near the middle; gorgeous song, there just happens to be others I like more)
  16. Glass Onion
  17. Don’t Pass Me By
  18. Rocky Raccoon (another grower!)
  19. Birthday (I like this one musically, all the different sections and that, but it’s not exactly a substantial song)
  20. The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill
  21. Mother Nature’s Son
  22. Blackbird (another one I do really love and feel bad ranking low, just happens to be other stuff I like a bit more)
  23. Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey 
  24. Savoy Truffle
  25. Piggies
  26. Good Night (I used to really dislike how saccharine this was, but the sessions from the 2018 box made me appreciate this one more)
  27. Revolution 1 (it’s not bad or anything, I’ve always just found it kinda boring and much prefer the single version)
  28. Wild Honey Pie (idk what I was smoking having this so high before, hahahaha; I like it, but it’s pretty inconsequential filler, really)
  29. Honey Pie (I guess this one’s grown on me in that it’s my second least favourite now, as opposed to my least favourite)
  30. Why Don’t We Do It In The Road? (joke song that isn’t even that interesting musically; at least it’s short!)

I saw my old ranking, and needed to update it. God , I’m disappointed in my old self ahdn_paul_01

30. Honey Pie – Easily one of Paul’s worst songs. Every little aspect of this song is as corny as it can possibly get. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

29. Good night – It’s like Honey Pie , but Ringo’s vocals don’t sound cheesy. Still not one I enjoy, though. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

28. Wild Honey Pie – I used to despise this song, though over the years, it’s turned into more of a “so bad it’s good” type of song, if I can even call it one. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

27. Don’t Pass Me By – It’s Ringo’s first song, so I really can’t hate it. But I don’t call myself a fan, and it feels like it goes on forever. a-hard-days-night-ringo-11

26. Revolution 9 – I find it quite overhated, as the sound effects are pretty interesting. But it’s way too long. two-virgins

25. Birthday – The instrumentation is nice, but the lyrics are painfully simple. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

24. Revolution 1 – Not bad, but definitely not as good as the single version. a-hard-days-night-john-1

23. Savoy Truffle – A good song with good guitar lines. That’s just about it. a-hard-days-night-george-9

22. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da – Plenty love it, plenty hate it. I think it’s a good track, personally. Definitely better than Honey Pie . a-hard-days-night-paul-8

21. Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey – Musically, it’s fabulous. Lyrically, it’s nothing special. But it’s still great! a-hard-days-night-john-3

20. Yer Blues – I like it much more now than I did back then. a-hard-days-night-john-7

19. Why don’t we do it in the road – I can’t believe people hate this song. I love it. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

18. Glass Onion – With age comes a new appreciation for underrated songs like this one. a-hard-days-night-john-6

17. I’m So Tired – John’s vocals are simple amazing. ahdn_john_08_gif

16. Back In The USSR – I’ve heard it a lot, but it doesn’t stop me from loving it! a-hard-days-night-paul-7

15. Rocky Raccoon – I always forget how much of a bop this song really is. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

14. Julia – I absolutely adore the acoustic guitar on this track. And the lyrics are very heartfelt, too. john-lennon-salute_gif 

13. Piggies – George was a great songwriter when he went against the government. Also has a catchy harpsichord. a-hard-days-night-george-4

12. Helter Skelter – You can’t go wrong with this track. Simply incredible. ahdn_paul_02

11. The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill – I can never get tired of this song for some reason. yoko-ono_01

10. Sexy Sadie – The fade out on this track is truly one of the best in history. a-hard-days-night-john-6

9. While My Guitar Gently Weeps – Maybe I’ve just heard it a little too much times, but it’s undoubtably a masterpiece. ahdn_george_06

8. Mother Nature’s Son – Everything works here: The guitars, the horns, the vocals, everything! ahdn_paul_02

7. Blackbird – It may be overplayed, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s a perfect song! ahdn_paul_06

6. Happiness Is A Warm Gun – Is anyone gonna talk about that killer guitar solo!? ahdn_john_08_gif

5. Long, Long, Long – One of the most beautiful songs the band ever made. George proves here that he is a songwriting extraordinaire. ahdn_george_08

4. Martha My Dear – Easily Paul’s best “granny” song. By far! a-hard-days-night-paul-3

3. Cry Baby Cry – There’s something haunting about this song that just never gets old. john-lennon-salute_gif

2. I Will – My vote for Macca’s most beautiful song. Yes, even more beautiful than Yesterday . mccartney-shrug_01_gif

1. Dear Prudence – My favorite Beatles song of all time! Nothing can top it! NOTHING! john-lennon-salute_gifahdn_john_08_gifa-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-john-7a-hard-days-night-john-3a-hard-days-night-john-1two-virgins
