For me, this question is quite simply impossible. At the moment, I'm really digging some tunes off the original Yellow Submarine, like It's All To Much, All Together Now, even Pepperland. I've always loved Only A Nothern Song, maybe it's in my top 30 (which is saying something). Right now, if I HAD to pick a favorite song, it might be Rocky Raccon, as I just bought the remastered version of the White Album, and some young kids I help out with really enjoy this song, and we can all have fun together with it. Some other songs that we dance along to are All Together Now, Octopus' Garden, Yellow Submarine, by the way, I picked the songs. ūüôā

When I Twish And Shout, it makes the Girl say "What Goes On?", and than I say, "I do this Here, There and Everywhere", and than she finishes by saying "Honey Don't".

Octopus's Garden or Here Comes The Sun, too hard to pick between them, but I could go on and on.

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

3 of those songs were post-beatles, but whatever.

Hi, this is my first post. When I think of favorites, they're usually George songs, but they will change depending on the mood, but for now I'll go with "If I Needed Someone." I can see where the Byrds and Buffalo Springfield got their "signature sound," by copying the Beatles.

The Byrds? Yes. Buffalo Springfield? No way, bub. Springfield was a great (shortlived) band, famous for giving half of CSNY.

They didn't copy the Beatles, listen to Mr. Soul which sounds more like Satisfaction then If I Needed Someone.

I hate this, but if I must, it would be a tie between, Act Naturally, and Don't Pass me By.a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

It's funny how both those top 10s have songs that wouldn't even be in my top 100. Not that there's a right or wrong to any of this - it's great that The Beatles appealed in so many different ways.

I'll have to think about my top 10 now. Very much off the top of my head, here's a list.

  1. A Day In The Life
  2. Strawberry Fields Forever
  3. Something
  4. I Am The Walrus
  5. If I Fell
  6. I Feel Fine
  7. Rain
  8. This Boy
  9. Happiness Is A Warm Gun
  10. Here, There And Everywhere

...which isn't to say I don't love Revolution or Sexy Sadie or I'm Only Sleeping or Tomorrow Never Knows or Come Together or Twist And Shout or And Your Bird Can Sing or I Should Have Known Better or dozens of others. I do - they've been with me for so long it's hard to choose between them.

For anyone who needs some inspiration, here's my list of songs they've commercially released (plus a few others).

I totally agree with you on all those songs, They're all really good!!!! a-hard-days-night-ringo-15You have good choices in Songs!!!!!

Thanks to iTunes, I don't really have to think about this one (because it would hurt my brain for sure..  so many songs!).  According to my iTunes, the most plays are first "Baby's In Black" followed by (only one less play) "She came in though the Bathroom window".  Sounds right to me!  a-hard-days-night-paul-8

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

I made a list one day, when I was bored. I discareded the list, but I remember my favorite being It's All Too Much. Love the length and guitar chords.

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

Lol, why not?

 

I don't have a favorite Beatles song, that's too hard. It's something between Yesterday, Hey Jude, Let It Be, Got To Get You Into My Life, Happiness Is A Warm Gun, Something, Here Comes The Sun, For No One, Here, There, and Everywhere, She's Leaving Home, Yellow Submarine, Things We Said Today, Penny Lane, and Strawberry Fields Forever, though it really might not even be any of those.a-hard-days-night-paul-10

It's usually a fight between Tomorrow Never Knows, Rain, Strawberry Fields, I Am The Walrus, and Hey Bulldog (bit of a Lennon man!). Most listened to the past couple of months though has been Revolution [take 20]. Still struggling to get my head around that one. Amazes me it's still in the vault (or on YouTube).

To pick one song is really difficult, but if you put a gun to my head I would say......
