Help , The Fool On The Hill , and Let it Be.

Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?
Ringo Starr: He’s great. Especially his poetry.

Just curious-- why The Fool On The Hill ? Don't get me wrong, it's a great song, I'm just curious why you picked it.

Love one another.

Just thought it represented that era of their music pretty well. And yes, it is a lovely song, isn’t it?

Please Please Me

A Day In The Life

I’ve Got A Feeling

 

it really shows the range that they had in all facets. Songwriting, singing, playing, sonic texture, everything was being experimented with and improved upon. To me these three songs are milestones for The Band

Yes It Is . Though if I picked a song to represent the MMT era, I'd probably pick something from side 2, like Hello Goodbye or Penny Lane

Here is an alternate list for somebody going through a rough breakup. 

I Don’t Want To Spoil The Party

Yes It Is

Yer Blues

I would love the transition from the longing and gentle Yes It Is into the rip-roaring Yer Blues

Haha that's amazing! Three greatly underrated songs. That's perfect. I feel like the difference between casual Beatles fans and Beatlemaniacs is liking the obscure stuff just as much as the famous stuff. 

Love one another.
