Hello!

Here is the top 10 I came up with. It is based solely on what I like to listen to – not necessarily on musical, lyrical, or technical merit.

 

1. A Day In The Life – One of the best constructed musical pieces in history. Takes me to another place!

2. Something – Simply beautiful. The bass line and harmonies are gorgeous.

3. I Saw Her Standing There – Best album opener and one of my favorite Rock and Roll songs ever. Always makes me want to move!

4. Eleanor Rigby – Such a change from anything before it. Love the strings and the lyrics.

5. A Hard Day’s Night – From the opening chord to the end – what a rush!

6. Day Tripper – One of the best riffs ever. First thing I tried to learn on guitar.

7. Blackbird – I love Paul’s acoustic guitar work on this one!

8. What You’re Doing – This song is just so catchy to me. The intro and coda are as close as we get to a Ringo solo until The End .

9. Help ! – I really love early John rockers!

10. Martha My Dear – The piano intro pulls me in and just keeps getting better!

 

Honorable Mentions:

Here Comes The Sun

All My Loving

Strawberry Fields Forever

Got To Get You Into My Life

Oh! Darling

Abbey Road Medley

2.  Strawberry Fields Forever
3.  While My Guitar Gently Weeps
4.  Here Comes The Sun
5.  I Am The Walrus
6.  Eleanor Rigby
