Most days my favourite is And Your Bird Can Sing .  Lately, though, I can’t get I’m Only Sleeping out of my mind.  Also, I love both Paperback Writer and Rain .  

Yay! I’m Only Sleeping is my favourite Beatles song! It is followed by While My Guitar Gently Weeps , Sexy Sadie , I Am The Walrus , and Here Comes The Sun .

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

As far as my favorite song, which would also be my favorite Beatles song, it’s a hard choice between Nowhere Man and While My Guitar Gently Weeps .

Mine would have to be either And Your Bird Can Sing , The Word , or Hey Bulldog . From there, it’s like choosing babies.

My favourite song has to be either Strawberry Fields Forever or I Am The Walrus. The two songs that I’m really into atm are Two Of Us and Boys

All these years I was convinced it was impossible for me to settle on one “favorite” Beatles song, since there are just too many that are superb in so many different ways (and that it would be like saying you love one of your children more than the others).

Nevertheless, I recently had the epiphany that I can say, at last, that You Never Give Me Your Money is indeed my favorite.

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

Thanks for remembering Silly Girl!

For a long time (ok, actually, a few months…) I’m Only Sleeping has been my favourite song but recently, I have fallen in love with Long, Long, Long very strongly, I think, that’s my new favourite song now! With Across The Universe being the new number two.

My favourite is A Day In The Life , closely followed by Strawberry Fields Forever . I’ve been listening to Devil In Her Heart a lot lately too. I’ve never been a fan of that particular song,but I guess it’s growing on me a-hard-days-night-john-1

Still writing the words to the sermon that no one will hear......

I’m Only Sleeping is mine. Everything about it is just… really gear.

The followups would be I Want To Hold Your Hand , Strawberry Fields Forever (My first favourites from them, in that order), A Day In The Life , and Octopuses Garden. Because Ringo. ahdn_ringo_09beatlemaniacs_02_gif

 

Edit~~ AH I almost forgot Long, Long, Long , my most recent favourite

@PurplishRain, according to the canon poll results that you sent in, She’s A Woman and I Am The Walrus were only 9s, beaten by 5 other songs you haven’t mentioned… Which just proves that trying to pinpoint one’s favourite song is slightly silly, because it changes constantly!a-hard-days-night-george-10

(Having said that – My favourite is The Word a-hard-days-night-john-6)

Hey! You can’t be walking around with everyone’s votes! That’s private info! Maybe I don’t want everyone to know that Across The Universe with the weird tweet tweet noises was only a six for me! IT’S HIGHLY CLASSIFIED!a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

The Beatles (and Prince) are artists that are hard to permanently pin point a favorite song.It depends on what my mood is and what kind of genre i am having favoritism for at the time
