It took me a good long while to fully appreciate Tomorrow Never Knows.

I mean, I like Rock N’ Roll man, I don’t like much else.

She's Leaving Home I disliked for a while, but I eventually began to like it.

I used to hate the song Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown).

I'm not even sure why it bothered me so much. Maybe it was the sound of the sitar or the fact that my mum would play it nonstop.

Once I actually started to get into the Beatles, I was listening to Rubber Soul and then that song started to play and I freaked out.

My favorite band wrote and sang the song I despised my whole life.

I'd have to agree with some Harrison songs already mentioned.

Love You To,   Blue Jay Way,   The Inner Light &  Within You Without You, but now I kind of like them, not that I've gotten spiritual or anything! a-hard-days-night-george-4

Now as far as the other George, I just can't get into any of his Classical Instrumental stuff on the Beatles LP's  george-martin

A boyhood friend had a compilation album that was recorded from an Armed Forces Radio show. My eyes widened when I saw a track by The Beatles called 'We Can Work It Out'. From the moment the stylus was placed on the album, I couldn't wait to hear this yet unknown song. When it finally played, I remember being so disappointed. It didn't move me, didn't rock me, didn't do anything for me. 

Once I heard it in the proper context among HELP!, 'Day Tripper' and Rubber Soul , I got it. The harmonies grab me every time I hear it. Great song.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I really love Norwegian Wood, but that's really funny!

@Zig The accordion probably had something to do with it.

I love Norwegian Wood too, but my mom hates it. She thinks it's the stupidest song ever. She also hates Obladi Oblada because it was the intro song of a soapseries I believe. I can see why she dislikes it now.

It's not my favourite, but I do like it. It's catchy, has weird words and is easy to remember. It's not the song I'd use to get people into the Beatles though. It's kind of an..awkward song.

Seconded. Fav per week is a bit more likely.

Was listening to side four of The White Album and found Good Night to be very calming and enjoyable after the chaos of Revolution 9. I was most surprised.

I've always liked Good Night a lot. When I had trouble sleeping I always listened to it, it calmed me down and really helped me get more sleepy.

Within You Without You is a song that I find myself listening to a lot lately, while before, I never really cared for it. Didn't really dislike it, just never listened to it, and now all of a sudden it's one of my favourites.

I used to LOVE that song, but then I'd put another album on, and BAM, I'd have another great song that became my Fav!

Fixing A Hole- i didn't like this song because i thought it was boring but it grew on me.

 

Blue Jay Way- I thought it was rubbish but later i ended loving it for i don't know for what reason, maybe George's acid vocals.
