I love Sun King, I think it's my most played song on itunes, but it's certainly not "great lyrically" but who cares, music is more important than lyrics.

"Eight Days A Week" is so sparkling and self-confident and innovative and just plain catchy, that it's a shame that its lyrics are so stupid.

(But, yeah, GniknuS is right: music > lyrics.)

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

Dig A Pony, the song itself is good, but I've never understood where John came up with those lyrics seeing as they're so vastly different from everything else he was doing around that time. But there are some funny references, roll a Stoney where you can imitate everyone you know.

The Beatles obviously are a great band, don't get me wrong, but I have a long list when it comes to this. I think I'll shorten this to five songs...

"Yesterday" I think the song is pretty and all, but it's so over celebrated, that I think it's too mainstream to like.

"Yellow Submarine" Every time it comes on, I skip it.

"You Know My Name (Look Up My Number)" is a fun song, until after two minutes of them sounding half drunk.

"I Don't Want To Spoil The Party" sounds a little depressing...I don't know about you.

"Doctor Robert" I...just don't like it.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

Well...Yeah. Still. I mean, just the way it's sung too... I don't know. Maybe I just don't like it.

That's why I love it. I imagine them all stoned and drunk.

It's like the Karaoke you and your friends will/have done while drunk.

I used to think YNMN (LUTN) was the dumbest thing I ever heard. It has grown on me quite a bit since. Now, I smile all the way through it. It just sounds like they had so much fun making it.

I guess it would fit into this thread. Even though the words (all 8 of 'em) aren't bad per se, the instrumentation is cool. That's my boy Mal on the shovel!

Insanity is one of the traits that divides fans. What`s the common thing in Revolution 9, YNMN (LUTN), and Carnival Of Light

What are you talking about? There are more than 8 words in "You Know My Name (Look up the Number)!" What about the "Denis o'Dell" bit?

While My Guitar Gently Weeps? Hey Bulldog? Bad songs? Please expand on how they are bad, and how they can be improved.

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps?" 

"Hey Bulldog?" 

Whaaaa?

I mean, the lyrics of "Hey Bulldog" are kind of pointless. But there are some great lyrics that aren't even trying to be great!

Ah, well I'm all real sorry about that, I was doing songs with great instrumentations and I didn't do bad songs though because I like all of those!
