1. Eleanor Rigby . Strings without resonance, cold and stark lyrics. Paul at his absolute peak. More revolutionary than TNK.
2. I'm Only Sleeping . Dreamy, hazy, and surreal. The backwards guitar is not only cutting edge but one of the most satisfying sounds on the album.
3. Tomorrow Never Knows . A Lennon opus that sounds as progressive and avante guarde as it sounded in 1966.For No One . Heartbreaking lyrics on top of a moving French horn solo. A clavichord thrown in to seal this experimental chamber orchestra as pure genius.
4. For No One . Heartbreaking lyrics on top of a French horn solo, with a clavichord to turn this chamber orchestra piece into pure genius.
5. Here, There, and Everywhere. Only McCartney can make something so simple yet so mature. Astounding.
6. Got To Get You Into My Life . Paul was becoming the Beatles foremost songwriter
7. Taxman . As searing and brutal a guitar solo you could ever hear.
8. Love You To . Simply stunning composition.
10. And Your Bird Can Sing . A fantastic guitar melody with electric harmonies and unique timbres.
11. Yellow Submarine . Fits astoundingly well in this eclectic group of songs.
12. Good Day Sunshine . One of Paul's best piano hooks.
13. Doctor Robert . Another great guitar track by Lennon. With a harmonium underlying intricate harmony.
14. I Want To Tell You . Great lyrics. Just not on the same level as the other tracks.
A bit of an older post but i was just browsing through this thread when I noticed that you wrote nearly the same thing for TNK as FNO. Made me chuckle as I had been wondering what about TMK's lyrics made them heartbreaking.

The great thing about Revolver is that this would be a perfectly acceptable list in reverse order.

13. Yellow Submarine - Classic song that everyone has at least heard of. It is very childish though and I've heard it a billion times.
12. Eleanor Rigby - Amazing song but I can barely stand to listen to it now because I've heard it so many times. A first time listener is in for a treat, though.
11. Doctor Robert - Good song but there's not much to it.
10. Taxman - Wonderful song with a great guitar solo but I've, once again, heard it so many times.
9. For No One - Beautiful song but I prefer the following songs.
8. Love You To - The first of the trio of Indian songs George wrote is wonderful and very different from anything else on this album.
7. Here, There, and Everywhere - Once again, beautiful song by Paul.
6. And Your Bird Can Sing - Great song. Nothing much to say. Strange lyrics.
5. Got To Get You Into My Life - Absolutely great song. Some of Paul's best work
4. I Want To Tell You - This is the last song I heard on this album so it's fresh to me. That's probably why it's so high up, because it's so fresh and I love it. Great guitar riff, and George is my favorite.
3. I'm Only Sleeping - Such an amazing song. Very interesting, too.
2. Tomorrow Never Knows - Holy shit. This song is... well... I don't know. It's some of the best studio work ever produced by a band because it's so in your face with strange noises, and, unlike a lot of songs that have strange noises that overall just sound like stupid crap, this song actually works. It's wonderful.
1. She Said She Said - I'm a rocker. And boy do I love this song. So strange, yet so simple. Love everything about it.

This is going to be hard but here goes nothing
1. Tomorrow Never Knows - A Mindfuck, the tape loops, the Indian drone. The drums, bass, guitar. This track doesn’t sound like it was made by humans, it sounds cosmic. Probably my favourite Beatles song
2. For No One - Such a gorgeous but haunting song about break up angled in a honest and realistic way. One of my favourite songs of all time. That Clavichord harmony is just so good it should be illegal
3. Eleanor Rigby - Fantastic Baroque composition mixed with rock elements. Just listen to the staccato and harsh playing technique applied by the strings. Lyrics are depressing but brilliant.
5. She Said She Said - The drums, guitar bass, vocals, do I need to explain?
6. Taxman - Pissed off tax payers make for great music. That solo is the bane of my existence.
7. Love You To - The first foray into Raga Rock and it goes over pretty well. Every sitar pharse tells a story in it of itself. The whole arrangement is beautiful as well as menancing. Some of George’s best lyrics
8. And Your Bird Can Sing - That guitar riff has saved million of lives I assure you. Paul’s bass compliments the track so well. Awesome track
9. I’m Only Sleeping - Backwards guitar phrases really enhance the sleepy vibe of the song. Who knew laziness could make such great music. I love when John says “Paul yawn” he actually does. That just makes the track for me I don’t know why
10. Got To Get You Into My Life - Continuting the Motown soul theme from Drive My Car we have another fantastic song with great horn arrangements and McCartney obsessing over pot. Who could ask for more?
11. I Want To Tell You - I actually think the dissonance in this song makes it so much better. Really highlights the confusion in the lyrics. Some awesome fills by Ringo, Quite underrated
12. Doctor Robert - Crunchy guitar riff with The Beatles flat out stateing they take drugs. That bridge is one of my favourite Beatle moments. Again underrated but 11-14 on my list are so hard to rank because I feel Beatles fans don’t give them enough credit and I hate to put them at the bottom of the list
14. Good Day Sunshine - I love the dynamics of this song which explode in the chorus and are quiet in the verses. Sure this song isn’t Tomorrow Never Knows but it’s not trying to be. It’s a sunny pop song and it is well written. The outro is another awesome Beatles moment.
