I would Old Brown Shoe. Now that's a tune! I probably also say Long Long Long. George at his finest. a-hard-days-night-george-10

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

They have a lot of underrated songs. But for me the most underrated one that should have gotten a bit more attention would be Rain. They had a lot of really great B-sides from about 1965 on. But all they're songs are of course really good. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Ahhhhhhhhhh, a woman after my own heart. Rain is in my top 3 Beatles songs. When I go for my morning walk in about an hour, it is queued up as song # 4 in my iPod because I'm currently listening to Past Masters.

It's gonna be an awesome walk!

...Hmm, I think Rain is pretty underrated. One of my favourite Beatles songs.

That, and Old Brown Shoe. Gotta love Georgie. a-hard-days-night-george-9

One After 909 off Let it Be or Little Child from With The Beatles. Little Child is too good of a song to be labled as filler, One After 909 to me is the best song off Let it Be. You Know My Name (Look Up the Number) is also seriously underrated for backing a single.

I never really liked I'm Down until I saw some concert footage... now I can't help but rock it out whenever that song comes on!

I was going to say I'm Down, but it appears somebody's beaten me to it.

 

I really like Blue Jay Way.  I don't think that gets enough respect.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

I agree, most of Georges songs don't get enough attention. I've never really heard people talk about The Inner Light either.

"Because". It's a beautiful song, with great harmonies, and yet I don't really see it getting much attention, at least not from casual fans.

And I'm going to agree with "Rain" being underrated.

I don't know.  I've heard Because played on the radio a few times.  Maybe it's just where I live.  Still, I think it doesn't get ENOUGH attention.

It's All Too Much may not be one of their best, but I've always liked it. Hey Bulldog is underrated, and so is almost the entire Rubber Soul album.

I think Rubber Soul has gotten plenty of respect over the years

Yeah, and I think "Rain" is less underrated than people claim it is. So its underratedness is overrated?

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Haha, I was wondering how many times Sgt Pepper could be called overrated before it is, in fact, underrated?

I think their cover of "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" is very underated. It's one of their most danceable songs ever, along with "All My Loving", "Maxwell's silver hammer" and ""I want you (she so heavy)"

Really? "Lizzie"'s always been my least favourite of John's Larry Williams covers. Not enough variation in that guitar line for my liking. But a friend of mine swears by the "Hollywood Bowl" version.

Also, I love the idea of dancing to "She's So Heavy"!
