This might be hard to understand, but let me give an example:

1963: Twist And Shout

1964: A Hard Day's Night

1965: You Won't See Me

1966: I Want To Tell You

1967: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

1968: Birthday

1969: Something/I Me Mine (I'm not going to put one for 1970 because 1969 was their final year IMO)

 

What's your list?

Erm, I'll do a Lennon list.

63- Please Please Me

64- I'm a Loser

65- HELP!

66- I'm Only Sleeping

67- I Am The Walrus

68- Everybody's Got Something to Hide...

69- Give Peace A Chance

I wasn't really sure what you meant though, so I was looking at it through John's various mental states.

1965: Nowhere Man

When John Lennon was asked if he thought Ringo was one of the best drummers in Rock-and-Roll, he said (smiling) "Hell, he's not even the best drummer in the Beatles."

  1. 1962 - 'Love Me Do' (first single and its this or 'PS I Love You'.)
  2. 1963 - 'She Loves You' (brought the UK to its knees, sold in ridiculous amounts). (note: am tempted to say 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' mainly for the US but that flows into 1964 burst flooding the country)
  3. 1964 - 'A Hard Day's Night' (title of the film, sums up the insanity of Beatlemania, studio progression, maturity in the song).
  4. 1965 - 'We Can Work It Out' (another huge leap forward in lyrics, production, not as fast a single hence John's push for the double a-side with 'Day Tripper' etc).
  5. 1966 - 'Tomorrow Never Knows' (highlights how far the band had advanced and where they were going (first recorded song for 'Revolver')
  6. 1967 - 'A Day In The Life' (the crowning moment off 'Pepper', group way ahead of any of their rivals in every way)
  7. 1968 - 'Hey Jude' (mostly still togetherness but problems in the camp (Paul v George over the answering guitar parts))
  8. 1969 - 'Something' (George equaling if not surpassing John and Paul in his song creation and finally gets his a-sidea-hard-days-night-george-4)  
  9. 1970 - 'Let It Be' (end result good but road there long and lugubrious, just let it end be over was the desire of all)

^^ I wanted to say A Day In The Life for 1967, but I was interpreting the original question more in terms of the songs the majority of the population thinks of when they think of The Beatles. And I think more people are familiar with All You Need Is Love than ADITL.
