My favourite song on the Revolver...I can't say either, it's one of the very best albums ever released. My two cents, Yellow Submarine is probably the weakest on the album. Revolver is in a different league than Rubber Soul in my opinion.

My list:

1. Tomorrow Never Knows

2. Here, There, and Everywhere

3. I'm Only Sleeping

4. For No One

5. I Want To Tell You

6. And Your Bird Can Sing

7. She Said, She Said

8. Good Day Sunshine

9. Taxman

10. Doctor Robert

11. Love You Too

I found it weird while making the list that almost half of the songs that I numbered are the actual numbers they were given on the track listing on the album :/

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

I usually can't pick a favourite song from an album, but this one is easy: Tomorrow Never Knows :D (followed closely by Eleanor Rigby. But I would put Love You To in my top 3 as well.)

My favourite is "For No One" (possibly my favourite out of all the Beatles' songs, too). I just can't stop listening to it. It's such a good song.

1. For No One    2. And Your Bird Can Sing    3. Got To Get You Into My Life    4. Eleanor Rigby    5. Taxman

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

This album is just too good and strong to pick one song. For No One holds a special place in my heart, not only because I could relate to it 10)% many years ago, but I wrote a musical and lyrical analysis of it as an essay when I was applying to music programs at my university (which I got into but decided not to pursue).

Origianlly Eleanor Rigby was my favourite becuase of the strings. Then I decided that For No One was my favourite because its beautifully bleak and Paul's vocals are really sad and because of the horn solo. However, I think now that I'm Only Sleeping is my favourite, becuase its exactly how you feel when you wake up in the morning, and I like the use of feedback and weird effects and the lazy way John sings. And Your Bird Can Sing is up there too- the last verse is just WOW

"I Want To Tell You" is quite possibly my favorite song of all time. It's basically how I feel all the time. 

Favorite John: "She Said She Said." I've always felt this little piece of brilliance was underrated. 

Favorite Paul: "For No One." Not going to lie, this song often makes me cry. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Favorite on Revolver: Tomorrow Never Knows. Which makes it my favorite John song, but I'm Only Sleeping and And Your Bird Can Sing tie for a very close second. ANYBCS was playing on "Breakfast with the Beatles" this morning and I couldn't help but cardance. :-) The descending dual guitars get me every time, and hearing the song always brings me back to watching the cartoon as a kid because that was the third (read: good) season intro with the live action Beatles morphing into animated versions.

Paul: Eleanor Rigby was my favorite song as a child, but I wore it out. I still appreciate it, but these days I'm more likely to listen to For No One. Honorable mention: Got To Get You Into My Life (and the Earth, Wind & Fire cover it inspired).

George: I Want To Tell You. I so love that dissonant piano.

Being the Revolver advocate I am, I'm surprised I don't have a post here previously. If I do, then I'm not surprised, because I skimmed the thread briefly.. That aside, my favorite song on Revolver is currently I'm Only Sleeping, followed by Taxman. I have a hard time deciding whether I prefer For No One or Here, There, and Everywhere; I like them both equally, to be honest. 

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.

Nearly impossible task......this album is glorious. Top five in no particular order -

1/   For No One

2/   Tomorrow Never Knows

3/   Eleanor Rigby

4/   Love You To

5/   Taxman

I see lots of votes for Here, There And Everywhere - definitely not one I'm keen on but I seem to be in the minority.

My question is probably an indication to most here how *green* I am, Beatlemaniac-wise:  Why isn't "And Your Bird Can Sing" on my LP of Revolver which I purchased like 30 years ago...?

That was Capitol Records' doing. They'd routinely release truncated versions of Beatles' British LPs, leaving off a few tracks ("And Your Bird", "I'm Only Sleeping" and "Doctor Robert" in Revolver's case) and setting them aside for the near future; and when they'd accumulated enough leftover songs, releasing them as a "new" "album". Two British albums on Parlophone thus became three American (or Canadian) albums on Capitol. Profit!

Revolver is nowhere as good with the three missing Lennon tracks, always seemed daft to me they took just John songs for what became Yesterday and Today, subsequently limiting him to less tracks than George (probably the only Beatle album to do so).

Yeah, pretty much, although Let It Be comes close.

Had to be just coincidence that only John's songs were taken, right? I'd be surprised if the Capitol Records suits had any knowledge of which Beatle wrote which song, or who sang what. Or if they gave the matter any thought at all rather than just threw darts at a board.
