6. The Word

7. It's All Too Much

8. Helter Skelter

A Day In The Life

For No One

Every Little Thing

I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

Bean meaning to get around to this for a while but obviously never did - until now.

Not in any order and have deliberately not thought about trying to get 10 (even tho there are) as it will end up with "ooh that's a great song, got to include that" and it will end up with 156 tracks.

 No Long, Long, Long or While My Guitar Gently Weeps! Nothing from Revolver! Yesterday seems a strange one when given thought but it blows me away.

And I feel so guilty and dirty having done this. I apologise to all those tracks I left off that are going around my head and shouting "What about me!?" (Tomorrow Never Knows). I console myself with the knowledge this will be completely different in a few days time or when an omitted song comes to mind and its absence is nothing short of utter stupidity of the highest order.

"I told you everything I could about me, Told you everything I could" ('Before Believing' - Emmylou Harris) 

"Don't make your love suffer insecurities; Trade the baggage of 'self' to set another one free" ('Paper Skin' - Kendall Payne)

okay, toughest question ever but here goes:

1. For You Blue like I've said a million times, I love my Georgie boy!a-hard-days-night-george-10 I always imagine him singing it to meahdn_george_06

2. A Day In The Life

the rest in no particular order:

While My Guitar Gently Weeps


being for the benefit of Mr.kite

Do You Want To Know A Secret

I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

ob-la-di ob-la-da i just love how happy it is (and there's a bunch more on the White Album that I so wish I could include)

I Me Mine

She's Leaving Home

I always forget how much I love Dear Prudence until I listen to it again, but I'm not listening to it right now so I didn't include ita-hard-days-night-john-6 this will probably change, like, immediately after I post it

oops forgot fool on the hill, love that song!a-hard-days-night-george-9

“Anyway, there is one thing I have learned and that is not to dress uncomfortably, in styles which hurt: winklepicker shoes that cripple your feet and tight pants that squash your balls. Indian clothes are better.” - George Harrison

Here is my list: Had a really tough time picking..


10. Maxwell Silver Hammer - really catchy song, yet greater than any newer pop song might become.

9. Martha My Dear - same as above.

8. Here Comes The Sun - Just really beautiful allround. :)

7. Across The Universe - John Lennon's perhaps greatest song-poetry.

6. Magical Mystery Tour - Awesome orchestral masterpiece, really makes a grand entrance for the great album.

5. For No One - Really meaningful lyrics.

4. Abbey Road Medley - YES

3. In My Life - First Lennon personal and emotional close-up.

2. The Fool On The Hill - Great melody, great lyrics, great band.

1. A Day In The Life - Has it all. Possibly best song ever created.


Don't be too hard on my not so good english, or my reason for picking them, although i would like to hear constructive critisicm.

FoolishWalrusPaul, do you happen to be Dutch by any chance? Or from around there somewhere, Germany or Belgium or anything like that? You've got such a Dutch way of constructing sentences.
