This is too hard...

Here it is, off the top of my head:

10. Eleanor Rigby

9. In My Life

8. Yesterday

7. Here Comes The Sun

6. While My Guitar Gently Weeps

5. A Day In The Life

4. Strawberry Fields Forever

3. Let It Be

2. Blackbird

1. Across The Universe

Honorable Mentions: (I know this is technically cheating, but these would have been 11 and 12): Rain (11) and Tomorrow Never Knows (12).

[...]the instrumental passage of 'Within You, Without You' is almost certainly the greatest instrumental section they ever put out.  

It's deliciously jammalicious, isn't it? Quite tasty with the Indian instruments and strings swooping and bouncing off of each other like George and Eric wish they could have done on the Apple Jam, and just right all-round.

Hmm, it's been a while. Update time. ahdn_george_01

Without consulting my previous list, I would say something like
1) I Will
2) Hey Bulldog
3) Here, There And Everywhere
4) Nowhere Man
5) Across The Universe
6) Martha My Dear
7) It's All Too Much
8) In My Life
9) Fixing A Hole
10) If I Fell

Now let's find my previous list...

Beatlebug said two years ago (holy houses, how time flies!)

QuarryMan said so I don't need to
My list changes regularly so it will probably be different by tomorrow.

Although note that I will probably be too lazy to make another list tomorrow. Anyway, I've done a top ten for Pink Floyd, but never have done a Beatles one, so here I go. In no particular order: 

I Will (sentimental reasons, my dad used to sing this to me as a lullaby and it's a ridiculously good song) 

Across The Universe (just the atmosphere and poetry of the lyrics)

Martha My Dear (cause it's MINE) 

Something (Just ridiculously good all round.) 

Here, There And Everywhere (Also ridiculously good and atmospheric.) 

If I Fell (it's a gorgeous tune, the lyrics are excellent, and the harmonies just keep me coming back) 

You Won't See Me (I have a fondness for the upbeatness that is belied by the anger in the lyrics) 

All My Loving (a fine song, gets me going every time) 

Here Comes The Sun (it's nigh impossible not to love this one) 

Hey Bulldog (it was the first Beatles song I fell in love with, and it's like a crazy party. Love it)

Ooh... I'm so sorry Something , You Won't See Me , All My Loving , and Here Comes The Sun ... I still love you a-hard-days-night-paul-7
 

Damn, ten isn't enough! paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif  

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote
