Can't think of anymore Y songs of the top of my head...

I'm happy to start a round but I don't know how hard it will be:

Beatles or solo songs one or more members expressed a dislike for (if that makes any sense)

an example so you know what I mean:

A - And Your Bird Can Sing (John called it "a horror" and "a throwaway")

This one might be more of a challenge but should make for many interesting thoughts and discussions.  I look forward to seeing what people say.

I don't have a B, but here might be another A:

Another Day - I'm guessing John did not think much of song based on his line in How Do You Sleep?:

The only thing you done was Yesterday
And since you're gone you're just Another Day .

You are all my friends.

B:

Not exactly expressing a dislike for the song, but John was pretty dismissive of Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite ! In 1970, he said:

I wrote that as a pure poetic job, to write a song sitting there. I had to write because it was time to write. And I had to write it quick because otherwise I wouldn't have been on the album. So I had to knock off a few songs. I knocked off A Day In The Life , or my section of it, and whatever we were talking about, Mr Kite, or something like that. I was very paranoid in those days, I could hardly move.

And in the end
The love you take is equal to the love you make

C:

With John saying 'It's a sort of teenage social-comment song and a bit of a joke':

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill

E:

Every Night - one my favourite Paul McCartney songs.

In 1970, John Lennon described the McCartney album as "rubbish", so that's effectively all of the following songs: The Lovely Linda , That Would Be Something , Valentine Day, Every Night , Hot As Sun, Glasses, Junk, Man We Was Lonely, Oo You, Momma Miss America, Teddy Boy , Singalong Junk, Maybe I'm Amazed , Kreen-Akrore.

George Harrison described Maybe I'm Amazed and That Would Be Something as "great", but he said that the rest of the songs on the McCartney album "just don't do much for me".

And in the end
