You Like Me Too Much is one of my favorites on Help !, but nobody ever talks about it, so it leads me to believe nobody else is that crazy about it. I also really like Run For Your Life , and I've seen some hate on I'm Only Sleeping , but other than that.. I'm fairly average when it comes to the songs I'm not crazy about.

..also, Blue Jay Way is my jam.

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

I should also say that I like The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill . There's a version where Ringo is much more audible, which is also a good listen.. One of the Esher demos.

I've never seen ANY hate on "I'm Only Sleeping " until Funny Paper chimed in on the "Most Hated" thread! I was astonished! We all were!

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 think the reason 'YLMTM' isn't spoken of very much is because of the poor lyrics. His voice is enough to make me like the song but not everyone's the same.

Hate on 'IOS'!? How dare they?

Don't really get why anyone would hate I'm Only Sleeping

Anyway. I really love Blue Jay Way and Flying . Used to love DPMB too, but I've heard it too much and now it has become rather annoying.

Oh and lately I've really started to like It's All Too Much . The verses may be weak but I like the chorus and it's instrumentation.

Don't Pass Me By kinda creeps me out for some reason. I don't really know why... And I like It's All Too Much , too. I've only heard it once, though... a-hard-days-night-paul-7

You Know My Name (Look up the Number) is just pure awesomeness. People dislike it because it makes no sense and has no meaning, sounds kind of like me!

Same reason they don't like I Am The Walrus .blue-meanie

Ive learned from the Doctor we all have meaning, we are all amazing human beings capable of extraordinary things - except finding a related clip on YouTube. Tho i severely doubt you were being serious. I feel a Katy Perry song coming on. Anyone got a mallet so i can be knocked unconscious before it arrives.

It creeps you out? It doesn't creep me out but I DO think his voice sounds rather weird on it.

Hold Me Tight : I don't get why everyone hates this song, it's got that classic Beatles sound and is a great upbeat rocker that's fun to sing and dance along to.

When I Get Home : Great Motown influenced song.

Mr. Moonlight: One of their better covers IMO and i love that Hammond.

Tell Me What You See : The only good song on side B, in a way is a preview of what's to come.

The Word : Probably my favorite Beatles song, great rhythm, great bassline, killer harmonies, powerful lyrics, it's everything you want in a Beatles song yet it seems people have mixed opinions on it, with a few labeling it as the worst song on Rubber Soul .

What Goes On : Probably my favorite Ringo song, it's really great hearing George improv those country-esque licks.

Yellow Submarine : Not their best work but it's a nice song for the kiddies and groundbreaking in it's use of samples and sound effects.

Flying : Nice instrumental.

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill : As with Yellow Submarine , it's a fun little ditty for the kiddies that's fun to sing along to. It's also nice to hear Yoko sing lead, she actually does a pretty good job.

Revolution 9 : Not good but certainly underrated.

Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Run For Your Life : I love both of these songs for the same reason others dislike them, they're both upbeat pop songs about killing people.

Agree with all of those, and your reasoning.paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Someone else who's favorite Beatles song is The Word !beatlemaniacs_02_gif Another good point on this song is Ringo's drumming.ahdn_ringo_09

 

Another one I'd like to add is Dizzy Miss Lizzy - I can't understand why it's disliked. It isn't the most advanced song ever, sure, but it's a great groove, some great vocals John, etc...

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

My problem with Dizzy Miss Lizzy is that the lead guitar is boringly simple. That 1 second lick is all that George plays, with the exception of another 1 second lick that George plays about twice. And he actually screws up pretty badly on the final recording right after the instrumental section. The song itself is okay, but as a guitarist it bores me.

love "Blue Jay Way "  

Blue Jay Way is great. George nicely applies his Indian understanding of melody and harmony to some real 60s psychedelic instrumentation. I love the background vocals.

Mine are definitely Hold Me Tight and Wild Honey Pie . Dismissed by most as complete garbage, especially on this forum. These are two of my favorite Beatles singalongs.

@Dark Overlord Agree 100% with you regarding

Hold Me Tight (fun),

The Word (fabulous harmonies/production),

Yellow Submarine (also fun - especially for young kids),

Bungalow Bill (yes, fun),

and Maxwell SH (brilliant use of that brand new instrument the Moog Synthesizer, good melody, great production; wacko lyrics). 

What goes On strikes me as a dud though.

Also, I LOVE Dizzy Miss Lizzy . I don't care how often George repeats that lick; I love it. And that Lennon voice....

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)
