Hello everyone . I reckoned after months of loitering here it's high time I made a contribution so here it is but I cannot narrow it down to 10!  It's too hard

20) The night before

19) Something

18) You're gonna lose that girl

17) Nowhere Man

16) What you're doing

15) If I Fell

14) And I Love Her

13) You can't do that

12) No reply

11) I'm A Loser

10) The Word/ Yes it is 

9) I want you (she's so heavy)

8) Ticket To Ride/ While My Guitar Gently Weeps 

7) Sgt Pepper/ Dr Robert/ Eleanor Rigby/ Tomorrow Never Knows 

5) In my life/ A Day In The Life

4) Strawberry fields

3) I Am The Walrus

2) You've Got To Hide Your Love Away/ This Boy 

1) Girl = Ill be back (can't choose between them)

I am so pathetic I can't even narrow it down to 20!!  

Oh and honourable mentions for covers I didn't Include - Really got a hold on me, Roll Over Beethoven, Anna,  Baby It's You, Bad boy,  Long Tall Sally and Twist And Shout

3. Something

4. A Day In The Life

5. Glass Onion

6. Here Comes The Sun

7. All My Loving

8. Nowhere Man

Wernecker put "I Call Your Name" on his Top-10 list (Nov 27) (welcome Wernecker) - haven't seen that before.

You might check out the Mamas and Papas' cover. This may be the only Beatle song done better by another performer.

Was does anyone else think?

Well, I believe I've found the most difficult thing of all time.

In no order:

She's Leaving Home

Here, There, And Everywhere

Nowhere Man

It's All Too Much

Dear Prudence

Across The Universe

All I've Got To Do

The Fool On The Hill

Within You Without You

Strawberry Fields Forever

This could change at any given moment.

Currently, it is this list (in no paticular order), although it often changes:
Something; Here, There And Everywhere; Helter Skelter; Strawberry Fields Forever; Help!; I Feel Fine; Here Comes The Sun; The Abbey Road medley; I've Got A Feeling; Revolution 1; Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey..

Every time I see a post on this thread I think I should give it a go - but it's not possible - Mainly because I over think it (for example, should I factor in a song's impact? Some great songs aren't necessarily my favorites to listen to,…). I might possibly have a top 40.

But if I could only live with 10 Beatle songs the rest of my life (in no particular order):

I Want To Hold Your Hand

She Loves You

Eleanor Rigby

Lucy in the Sky ...

While My Guitar ...

Penny Lane

Hey Bulldog

Nowhere Man

I Saw Her Standing There

If I Fell

Hey Jude (I've come to re-appreciate the lyrics, the inspiration, the chord change from C to Bb and the scat singing during the na na na ending…)

(the next batch would include Revolution, A Day In The Life, Across The Universe, Because, Here There & Everywhere,…)

Even if I only factor in what I like, I still find this to be an impossible exercise.  As I wrote long ago on this topic (or in a similar one), when I try to choose my "favorite" Beatles song in any context (top 10, best on an album, etc.) I feel almost like that legendary mother in that myth who was forced to choose between two of her sons which would live and which would die.

At best, I find myself with a meaninglessly homogenous "Top 100" Beatles songs where they are all more or less crowded into the top spot of #1. 

This doesn't mean I don't have distinctions in my mind among the various songs; but they are more distinctions among things I like for different reasons, different flavors, colors, textures, spices -- a horizontal stratification, so to speak, not a vertical one.

@Von Bontee 

What's wrong with "Good Night"? (or was it a tough choice between that and "Boys"?)
