Best And Worst Beatles Song

Mon Oct 08, 2001 5:15 am

I realize that there aren't many bad Beatles songs, but i am not impressed with Dr. Robert and Within Without you. The best is a very difficult category as well. Many people will probably say "in my life", but "let it be" is the best in my opinion.

A day in the life, Strawberry fields, and In my life top the list. Let it be is also an amazing song. The bastard who shot John Lennon killed a legend.

take care

Worst: Was never a big fan of Ob-La-Di,Ob-La-Da

Best: I just spent ten minutes trying to think of one above the others I like....no dice. This was the greatest rock and roll band ever. Period.

Ummm... The obla di song is probably not one of the best. "Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey" just makes no sense.

Best... Norwegian Wood, Day in the Life, Drive my Car... too many to list.

All the Beatles' songs are good. There is no bad song.
Top of my personal list is "Ticket to Ride" & "Hey Jude".
Regards.

I agree with the best and worst choices already posted here. How about some of these classics too;
Back In The USSR
Hapiness Is A Warm Gun
Rain
Helter Skelter
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
Carry That Weight
Drive My Car
Dr. Robert
And your Bird Can Sing
We Can Work It Out
Yer Blues
Dear Prudence
Everybody's Got Something To Hide (Except Me And My Monkey)
Sexy Sadie

I always skip 'When I'm 64' on my CD.

I've got a bootleg CD of a compilation album, mostly made up of 'Revolver' era stuff, made by Capitol for the US in the mid 60's.
What makes it interesting is that the cover artwork never saw the light of day. The group are dressed in butchers aprons surrounded by pieces of meat and dismembered baby dolls.
Capitol didn't see the joke, and an alternative cover was issued!

The worst is really Ob-La-Di,Ob-La-Da

My favourites are: And I Love Her, Day Tripper, Hey Jude and Let It Be

"The bastard who shot John Lennon killed a legend."
Not only killed, but created a legend too.

I feel that "Hey Jude" is the best. And worst is worst because of John's pitch problem. He sings in the cracks in all the recordings I have heard when he sings "Images of photographs..."

I really don't know if it's a song or whatever it is. But it's has to be Revolution #9 as the worst.

The best if I had to chose one is "And I Love Her".

Best: Revolution,
Worst: Hey Jude.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Least favorite: I am the Walrus. Great song but I had a roomate that played it to death! The song is a bad omen for me.

Best: that's a tough one. My favorites are; Pennylane, Norwegian Wood, Got to Get You Into My Life, Get Back and magical Mystery Tour.

The "Let It Be" version of "Across the Universe." And by the way, I was a Beatle fan way back in 1964 when they sang "Long Tall Sally" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand." My sister was invited to a birthday party where one of the Beatles was present. I'd love to have gone.
