Mine are the train scene from A Hard Day's Night (aka Who's that little old man?), Sgt. Pepper scene from Yellow Submarine and the Your Mother Should Know scene from Magical Mystery Tour . What's yours?

Gotta split this into "dramatic" and "musical" sequences, otherwise too difficult! apple01

AHDN - Railway car sequence, the perfect followup to the sonically-and-visually-chaotic opening titles (with an opening shot as cataclysmic and world-changing as that of the 1977 Star Wars (and both films had the same DP!).

Musical: CBML sequence is still amazing, from the under-stairs pov to the unnatural film speeds to Ringo's droll little jump. That the visuals and the sounds have no narrative connection atall, no connection other than the irrepressible high spirits of the performers, makes this standalone "video" maybe their first collaborative Dadaist work! (Or something, or not.)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

AHDN : Ringo's solo scene - sad, but funny at the same time. Plus George Martin's arrangement of This Boy is amazing. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10george-martin

 

Help !: Probably the scene shot on Salisbury Plain surrounded by tanks. I find the contrast between George and the group just peacefully singing I Need You one minute and then the cult members jumping out at them shouting "KALILIIIII!" the next to be quite amusing.

 

Magical Mystery Tour : The track race scene. That looked like a fun bit to shoot!

 

Yellow Submarine : HEY BULLDOOOOG!!! 

 

Let It Be : Without a shadow of doubt, the rooftop concert, although I do like the version of Maxwell's Silver Hammer they rehearse at the beginning and John and Yoko waltzing around to I Me Mine is quite funny.

Help ! - Narrative scenes weaker than AHDN overall - many scenes feel redundant or might've benefited from a little more editing, even if only only a few frames. I think the best set-piece is the pub/tiger/famous Beethoven scene. As far as music, it's hard to choose; these bits are all spectacular to look at (those sets! those locations!) and unforgettably photographed. I'm torn between the trippy colours of AG and the white purity of TTR, but I'll go with the latter, just because it's the better 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!"

(I’m just going to do the ones I’ve seen) 

A Hard Days Night- HEY MISTA CAN WE HAVE OUR BALL BACK, SHAZAM! (And pretty much that whole scene) 

Help !- My favourite! Airport scene and when they’re in the bar. 

Yellow Submarine - Eleanor Rigby . SO MUCH EMOTION! (Sobs in corner) And of course the SitarDay scene.

MMT - Nonsensical race is fun, and the Jessie/Bloodvessel scene is kinda sweet, but for the most part, the nonmusical bits are pretty weak, with the occasional standout moment. As for music, I'm going with IATW.

YS - Jeremy Hillary Boob,  Ph.D is the breakout character in this one, and the entire scene where he meets our heroes is my personal dramatic/comedic highlight. (Sorry, "Sea Of Holes " sequence!) And the spectacularly smeared colours and rotoscoping of the "LSD" part push that bit over the top...but my favourite 60 seconds of any musical number is probably the counting-to-64 bit.

Rooftop Concert is number one for sure. I love the scene in help where their sleeves get sucked off in the bathroom, as well as I Need You with the massive battle. 

The Nowhere Man scene with Jeremy H Boob PHD is also one ofnmy favorites.
