2Let It Be
Great melodic masterpiece. One of the most magnificent rock songs of all time. Never get tired of listening to it. It simply feeds my soul.
I don't know why its not #1 its the the embodyment of hope & wisdom because without faith you have truly lost your way in life
What a great hymn! This is such an absolutely perfect rock ballad. Touchy melody, fine chorus, somehow roughly sophisticated arrangement, and slightly weird and religious lyrics about Mother MaryŁ. Is she Mother Mary Magdalene from The Bible or Paul's mother (whose name is Mary too)? This is such a great song that even today, over 30 years after it was released; it can still lift anyone's spirits. A great song with a great message: just let it be!

3A Day in the Life
Greatest song from the greatest album of Rock N' Roll history
Its really telling what is happening everyday in our lives
and it is straight for the heart I like it its too nice very very very nice
The best song for me ever I love you the beatles
A masterpiece that can never be recreated. This song rewrote the standards of pop (and rock) music and goes to show you how advanced The Beatles were (and this was released only in 1967! ) When I first heard this, I was simply speechless.

4Yesterday
A song that places a comforting hand on your shoulder. Absolutely mesmerizing! When the song hits your ears you are transported to another world...
Most of these top ten lists, from NFL Quarterbacks, to top singers, it's like did these people graduate Kindergarten and what are they huffing, and when did they start, like around kindergarten, that's why they didn't finish, but this is a half decent list; I'm glad that MOST of the meaningless bubblegum songs are out of the top 10; however, I think this is an easy #1 (would except a day in the life... ) but not a bad top 5, then again we're dealing w/ beatle's fans which'd make up for the increase in intelligence.

psychokiller32

The lyrics remind everyone of their life. How everything can be one way and then change before you know it. Truly gave me a sense of how change is good and needs to happen.

5Strawberry Fields Forever
Strawberry Fields Forever is absolutely the greatest song written by the Beatles. I never get tired of it. At first listen, it's strange and absolutely nothing sounds like it. But then it evolves into this magnificent, imaginative world. It makes you escape. A great song should be both beautiful and melodic, but also capture your attention and mesmerize. The lyrics in this song are simply incredible. To me, SFF takes the Beatles away from just being a great pop band to being the GREATEST of them all. Songs like this one take them straight to another dimension. As pretty as Hey Jude or Let It Be may sound, there isn't anything special about them. THIS SONG is special beyond words. Please put it at number 1 because it doesn't belong anywhere else. It's truly a masterpiece. Whichever Beatle wrote it, or if it was done by them all, I don't care. It's brilliant.
A great fusion of Indian, avant garde, musique concrete with classical elements. This is also one of the best known psychedelic songs and with it's reverse drum loops and double fade out with a free form coda. The lyrics are dreamy this has to be one of the Beatles best songs of all time.
Strawberry Fields Forever is a masterpiece. This song made the Beatles absolutely unique. There is something about it that shines more than other Beatles songs. It's got a gorgeous melody, a very dreamy atmosphere, and the lyrics are so different. They sound very strange slipping out of the tongue, but there is great depth there. I always think this sound them took them from just a band that made hit songs to a band that made REVOLUTIONARY songs. STRAWBERRY FIELDS for the win.

6Here Comes the Sun
Love this song, it has something that changes my mood. A bad day can be changed in 3 minutes. One of the best of the Beatles and I think the best of George
Here comes the sun is a beautiful song. Written by George Harrison in the album Abbey Road. An iconic album and a wonderful song.
Yes! BEST SONG EVER! In my opinion this will be the ONLY music my children listen to because it is inspiring and calming.

7While My Guitar Gently Weeps
The greatest ever song of the Beatles era is at NUMBER EIGHT? It is perhaps THE greatest guitar song I've heard from the 60s-70s hippy time, I can't believe its so down low in the rankings... Shame.
Best, along with "A Day in the Life" ^^ "Let it Be". This song stood out immediately when I first listened to the White Album ^^ is also one of the many reasons that album is one of the greatest of all time.
This song brought wonder to my life. I can't believe its rank.

Favourite song! applies to everyone! my inspiration for so many things. I listen to it everyday and it never gets boring, you find something new in the song every time you listen
This song is amazing. I always feel like I'm going to cry when I hear it. It is just so beautiful and meaningful!
we must remember this was written when lennon was 19

9Eleanor Rigby
I lived through the 60's and beyond, in "the Haight" prior to the Beatles explosion. I listened over and over to all the music. It was everywhere, all the time, making life seem like a totally new dimension, like in the Wizard of Oz, but real life! Out of all the songs I heard, this one had a greater depth and meaning, now, some 50 years later. Hard to believe, but true! Seems like Yesterday, no pun intended.

jamesprestonthomas

Deep meanings, fantastic lyrics. Couldn't get any better! Absolutely love this song, never gets old.
A wonderfully dramatic song and possibly the first classical music pop song.

10Something
You're asking me will this song go, I don't know, I don't know, but it most certainly should. Too good too not be in the top ten, and I know you could say that about maybe 50 of their songs, but this one especially.
This is the greatest love song period! George is a great composer! The Beatles are the first ROCKERS ever and no other band will come close to them.
A great tune, I enjoyed playing this song in my band, of and on fo over thirty years, during which time, we covered many of the previous mentioned songs as well. Over the years, playing both the original version, as well as other artsits versions. Always enjoyed playing Beatles tunes.

The Contenders

11Come Together
This song is excellent. Come on people! How can these be number 12, this song could easily enter in the top 10 beatles song. Everything is just perfect in here, excellent rhythm, terrif bass (probably one of the best from macca) incredible vocals (i think that these is the greatest vocals that john lennon ever recorded) I mean everything in this song is just so catchy!
This song rocks the hardest! Well I'm 14 years old and this song sounds cool to me---sounds cool even to my teenage peers---sounds cool to my parents---sounds cool(virtually)to all ages;this song stands the test of time. Listen to the guitar on the line "come together! Right now over... That's pure soulful rock music! I believe that this song and "I Want you she's so heavy" are the two of the best (perhaps "coolest") song ever written by he beatles; and these two deserves to be on top! I mean really! This is a rock anthem that will always rock you down forever. A rocker's favorite. Yeah! Rocks as hard as Metallica
The only really cool Beatles song. They were finally learning how to be cool and moody, like the Stones. Not that this song sounds like the Stones and that the Beatles didn't make other great music, my granny loved them, not the Stones, get my point.
Ps I loved my granny by the way.

12I Am the Walrus
This is a very very and interesting song! PURE POETRY! This is BY FAR the best song in all of the Beatles career and it has a strange of representing the sixties with an understanding of the only possible way of turning a completely misunderstood written language of nonsense into a waterfall of beauty and direction of the minds of geniuses like John Lennon, the greatest and most brilliant songwriter and thinker of ALL TIME! Number ONE!
Great Song, great beat, great meaning (or lack of it depending on how you see it). This should be number one
There is one partition in music, before Beatles and after, more specific Sgt. Peper album, but for me I am te Walrus was the song to brake the envelope before his time. It┬'s a timeless work of art with ups, downs, stops, change of rhythm, different timing almost incomprehensible. This song is influential for rock master pieces like QUEEN Under Pressure.

13Twist And Shout
A song that will never be forgotten!
This song is rock n roll perfection, pure gold! Long live the Beatles!
In my opinion the best rock and roll song ever. John Lennon's voice and delivery is fantastic.

14Help!
This song reflects John Lennon and I love him to bits. The voice, the music, the beat is simply undying, they listened to it in the sixties and it is still worth listening to in the 21st century.
wow this song is pretty high on best songs list, AND is number 8 on the worst songs list. I think its one of the greatest don't know why people would or could hate this great song.
When I first heard it was like a veil was opened and I could see my future it was just great. I knew what I was gonna be I was gonna be a singer. Although I may not be as good as the beatles (no one is) but I'd try my hardest! I love this song and so should all the people.

15I Want to Hold Your Hand
I want to hold your hand is a fun and playful song that is also very cool sounding. This is definitely one of the Beatles best songs. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the album Past Masters Volume 1.
For me one of the best songs ever made. Listen how the base plays a lick when the other instruments are 'low'. Everything works together perfectly. And it's not just the same chord progression looped throughout the whole song, no the chorus is a little bit different each time. A masterpiece!
I want to say that ringo star you have inspired me and if I cuold here you at least one more time live on stage will be my dreame

16Across the Universe
My all time favourite Beatles song. It's so dreamy. The lyrics are so weird and yet kind of meaningful. I just love everything about it, but I still don't know what jai guru deva means... Think I'm gonna google it...
It's wonderful to think this song has been play into space...
It makes me cry every time I heard it, and it gaves me a lot of bravery.

For rock2metal and evrybody who doesn't know what jai guru deva om means : It's in sanskrit, and it means "thank you guru Dev". The Beatles met this guy during their journey in India, and he had a great infuence on their music and their way too see the life, I think.

(I'm sorry if I made some mistakes, but I'm french, I'm 16, and yeah, I love the Beatles too! )
This song is my favourite tune by the beatles. Although it is a very hard decision with so many amazing songs... Happiness is a warm gun, I'm so tired, a day in the life, the list really goes on forever. I'd recommend this song to anyone it has a really dreamy feel to it and makes me feel very nostalgic for some reason.

17All You Need is Love
Greatest song ever written, Listen to it every day
"I still believe all you need is love, you know, but I don't believe that eh, just, saying it is gonna do it you know, I mean I still believe in the fact that love is what we all need"
HOW IS THIS NUMBER 23?
It's such an amazing song. All you ned is love!

19Revolution
Love all their songs but this has to be my favorite
sounds different then any other thing they made.
just great.. you will be inspired not by the music but by the way the complex and cruel the song is when it comes to sweetness and tenderness of any band artist
One of John Lennon's best creations. Has a good rock intro, then I love the scream and then talks about a revolution. Lennon does a great job singing this, and you get addicted to this song fast and puts you in a good mood.

20Blackbird
I adore this song a bit to much, I listened to it for the first time in 2005 and it has been one of my favourite sons ever since then. It's just a completely amazing song, I can't even describe how much I love this song, all I can say now is that it's perfect and I can't believe it's not in the top ten, to be honest.
Heard it once... N have not stopped listening to this song ever since... Feel like singing it as a lullaby to my baby brother..
it's the most beautiful song I've ever heard. it's amazing, very meaningful to me. it's short but make me super happy when I'm hearing it.

21The End

As I understand it the last thing that the band ever put down on record and what a fitting way to finish? Just have a listen to the three way guitar jam between paul, john and george. Sheer brilliance and a wonderful example of why this band is so amazing. You could write a whole album around the rhythms and beats in this one snip of two and a half minutes.

gotlbh

This short finale to Abbey Road is the last time the beatles jammed together and what a session! The 3 way guitar joust between john, paul and george is simply awesome. And what better way to sign off after 7 years of genius than with a song like this. Goodbye boys!

22Tomorrow Never Knows
A difficult song for many to like due to its lack of a recognizable or catchy melody (in my view), but for crazy, creative and experimental musicianship it is simply phenomenal. It is not a song of the 60s. It could equally have been written recently or in the future and still sound relevant. Drum and bass style break beats and a song structured around a single chord, in 1965!

gotlbh

The amazing backdrop of Indian classical instruments merged eloquently with Ringo's unorthodox drum play makes this song loud but still soul engrossing. The voices of John and Paul feels warm when heard with a backdrop of a flanged instrument play. There is a method in the chaos if you can notice it. It is one of those songs which will have polarizing listener's opinion.
The Best 3 acid minutes ever produced. This is the first really psychedelic, progressive rock so bands like hawhkind Amon Duul and other Krautrocks It was just so ahead like Hallogalo of Neu

23With A Little Help From My Friends
Fantastic song deserves to be great and is a truly inspirational song from a truly inspirational band 'simply the best'!
Deserves to be higher up the list.
This is the best song of all time its so nice and it is true you get by with a little help from your friends. It helped me lots not joking this song should be in the top 10 THIS IS THE BEST SONG OF ALL TIME I REPEAT BEST SONG OF ALL TIME. NEED MORE VOTES I BEET YOU GET BY WIT A LITTLE HELP FROM YOUR FRIENDS god I love that song so much AND I NEED SOMEONE TO LOVE TOO its the best vote x
You know, there is a couple beatles songs I like. First off I like prog rock and hard rock more than beatles slow rock/pop but this song really is inspiring it seems to knock off every other beatles song. You will find maybe 1 or 2 songs on an album that are greatly underrated but are amazing songs. Like something for nothing by rush, great song so underrated. Personally I think all of rush is underrated. This song is great great rythym good lyrics just blows by all their other stuff.

24Helter Skelter
This song along with You Really Got Me, Black Sabbath and Born To Be Wild created metal. I guess Deep Purple and Zeppelin helped too.
Slash (Guns n' Roses) says this is one of his top 3 songs. Probably the heaviest Beatles song. Very catchy!
Well, for me is the best song because is very moove and very... Rare because Paul sings that so good and I love it so Ringo plays the drums very well and so I love it

27Happiness Is a Warm Gun
I love this song a lot mostly towards the end, but I like how there's four parts in the song: Donated to the National trust, I need a fix cause I'm going down, mother superior jumped the gun and finally Happiness is a warm gun. Paul McCartney also sounds a lot like Queen at the end.
Three great songs in one.
My favourite Beatles song and second favorite song of all time.

29Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
The opening sitar tunes are unique! I being from India makes me wonder what amount of genius these guys must have possessed as they seamlessly blended Indian music with american pop style. This work is so hard that we still do not hear Indian music's fusion in mainstream pop styles of today. Long Live The Music Of These Geniuses. Harrison truly ROCKS!
If you consider their entire body of work as a group, in my opinion this tune best represents all that they had to offer and represented a major turn in pop music. This piece of work was completely flawless in its execution and resonated with the dominant youth culture of the time as well as those among the older generation that appreciated good art.
Amazing song! Not credited enough! I love how interesting the sitar makes the song as well

30You Never Give Me Your Money
This one song contains more instrumentation and musical variation than most other bands put into an entire album. As I understand it, the song is actually itself a merging of several different unfinished song ideas into one, and when you listen to it you can really hear the different song themes, tempos and rhythms all in there. All told, it creates an incredibly varied and creative sound and is definitely in my opinion an underrated song in the Beatles catalog.
One of the most underrated Beatles songs. This is extremely complex melodically. It kicks off the Abbey Road Medley, which could be argued as the Beatles magnum opus. The lyrics are also genius. This song should be in the top 5.
Just give it a listen. Its like a meusli bowl of sounds and rythms blended together. A forerunner to queens masterpiece

31I Want You (She's So Heavy)
This should be at least in the top 10, its amazing, it sounds so dark and builds up over time and gets darker and darker until the song ends, if you havnt heard it yet you should definitely listen to this.

One of the greatest songs ever! Its very dark. At the end when it starts to get more and more distorted is just amazing!

32The Long and Winding Road
This song was spoiled in my view by the hamming up the producers gave it on the original let it be release and I didn't really appreciate the song until I heard the scaled back sound on the subsequent naked. Listening to this version, it strikes me as a beautiful song, poignant and with a wonderful harmony of piano and, presumable some kind of loosely strung guitar riff that pipes up between the words. I urge all fans to give this a listen and bring it up the list.

33She Said She Said
Drum roles off this planet, trippy guitar. Was this really written in 1965 (or 66? ). Revolver at its very best. Still awesome nearly 50 years later.
Nothing out of brit pop could compare - this sets the sound for a future movement and leaves them all in its wake
Revolver gone bonkers, with paul from another dimension on the bass and ringo stepping off a spaceship to do some trippy drums. Makes other 60s bands sound so dull.

How is this not rated higher on the list. John Lennon said that this was his favorite Beatles song ever. It's just so pretty.
This song may not be the best song beatles had made, but it makes me feel that beatles were real psychiartrists/scientists in the field of music. They just make your mind blow. I wish I were in their time for I would die to hear them play live
Classic. Best song from Revolver. Probably the 2nd most beautiful melody McCartney ever produced, next to "Hey Jude", of course.

36Don't Let Me Down

This is my favourite beatles song it is honestly so beautiful. Not only is the chorus magnificent, but the verses are too! This should be higher on the list.

A real lennon soul bearing moment and some of the best vocals he put down on vinyl. Paul adds a romping bass line to support the singing and the billy preston synth hits a brilliant counterpoint. Shame the split soon afterwards as it showed just how awesome they still were. Check out the video on the roof of the abbey road studio. All these modern four and five piece guitar bands can only dream of such an effortless style and quality.

It may be short but it gets its point across very clearly. "Life is very short and there's no time for fussing and fighting, my friend. " There's a whole life lesson to be learnt from that slightly mournful, yet humbly optimistic, line.
Most underrated song in history! Lennon-McCartney's greatest collaboration

The most beautiful song in the world. So few words, which fit the song better than in any other song. I REALLY don't understand, why it isn't ranked higher. The lyrics tell everything: "Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry". "Love is all, love is you".
Beautiful teamwork by Paul, John and George. Although each beatle was capable of making great music on his own, they worked together on this one; creating a true masterpiece

She was just seventeen, you know what I mean, and the way she looked was way beyond compare, I couldn't dance with another, when I saw her standing there
An Excellent piece by the Beatles. One of their better early songs.

P.S. I love all Beatles songs equally
This song is another classic rock n' roll song created by the Beatles, and it's a great dancing song that will get you singing and dancing. McCartney did a great job singing this and no one else could do it better. Over all, this is a great song and you should dance to it some time.

Paul's best vocal performance ever, in fact the best Beatles vocal performance ever. It was also a John Lennon favorite and he wanted to sing lead on this song... Happy Paul did instead as in my opinion he was a far better singer.
The young Paul McCartney leaves nothing behind when he screams out the vocals. It is absolutely phenomenal.
Personal favorite, SORRY, ALL PAUL AT HIS BEST!

I personally think that this is an amazing song. It's not one of their more popular songs because it's pretty simple, but I still think it's beautiful. I love the expressions John uses in his voice. "I'm Only Sleeping" is probably one of my favorite songs by the Beatles. Also, one of my favorite bands, The Vines, remade this song, and did a fairly decent job at it. Even my dad, who is a Beatles fanatic and flower child, really liked their cover of the song.
Most overrated Beatles song. It's true masterpiece. It's felts me like...

More innovation with the idea of a fade in to the start of the song. A nice collaboration that bounces along. Surprised it hasn't popped up sooner but it shows the depth of the beatles legacy

This is my favourite song!

60If I Fell
The harmonizing in this song is flawless.
Just a beautiful ballet, proving John can right great ballets despite his reluctance to admit it.
Why is this song rated so poorly its one the most beautiful melodies john ever wrote and the harmonies are surreal. This was kurt cobain's all time favorite song by the way
50 years from now when a new generation is rating Beatle songs, "If I Fell" will rank among the very best. A wonderful ballad written in a simple but yet deep and complex way.

61Real Love
The last great Beatles record. Brought Lennon back to life for 3:52. Proved The Beatles lost nothing to time or trends and did it with a dead man singing lead.
You know the beatles are the greatest bands of all time when the most romantic songs of theirs is ranked at 54. I sincerally do not consider this song as the best of the Beatles, and I can't choose a particular one to be number 1. I voted for this one because I think this should be ranked higher.

I <3 this song! (: Maybe not the best but it should be higher (;
Makes me really happy inside. This should be in the top 12 at least! Why is it down here? Come on people, vote vote vote!
By far the best Beatles song I thought this would for sure be in the top 3

64Octopus's Garden
I can't believe this song is placed here!... This song really takes you to an octopus' garden! The song is simple yet so deep and peaceful.. Makes me happy every time I hear it..
When I heard this song I was taken into a new dimension. This is by far the best Beatles song there is. I didn't know it was possible to have so much love and admiration for something. Simply a masterpiece
I think that this song should at least be in the top 20s this is The Beatles best song ever right next to Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane what were you guys think in putting this masterpiece song in the 70s there is something wrong with you guy's brains or something. Come on you guys can do a whole lot better than this I just know you can
Peace out

this is a curious song, with quite a different sound to may of the other beatles tracks. Its another harrison gem from the white album, and it is quite beautiful. In this and the other songs of harrison from 67 to 69 you really hear how he is reflecting on events. It may not be top ten, but it deserves to be heard.

69I've Just Seen a Face
A far underrated song that always cheers me up :) I stumbled upon it a couple of days ago when I bought the "Help! " album, which is, in my opinion, their greatest. A lovely melody and beautiful lyrics.
Simply the best song ever, country, rock and roll the combination is beautiful, indeed, a Beatles song. Only they can do stuff this way!
This is my favorite song by the Beatles. It is just a beautiful time and melody. How is this not in the top ten?

70I've Got a Feeling
The big reason I like this song is because John and Paul each have their own singing solos and then they sing them at the same time. George does a nice job on the guitar and I like how Paul sings in this song.
This song can't be 68th, it just can't.

71I Should Have Known Better
Every Beatles top ten list has the same smarmy, deeply meaningful, I need to critique the world selection. There were a lot of us who thought Eleanor Rigby was the end of the Beatles. There was a time when every young man wanted to be like the Beatles and every young woman wanted to be with the Beatles. They were a great rock and roll band early on.
Such an amazingly, simple song. I love it! I love The Beatles so much! All their songs are great. This one is a particular favorite of mine. And it was in their movie A Hard Days Night.
Such an intoxicating blend of melody, harmonica and lyrics that capture the innocent thrill, wonder and excitement of your first love.

BEEP BEEP MM BEEP BEEP MM YEAH!
One of the best Paul vocals, one of the best vocal harmonies, one of the best guitar/bass riffs, one of the best sounding drum audios ever put on THE best bands albums, AND ITS IN THE 80'S?!?! This is my favorite beatles songs!
I visit this website almost every week and I so it just so I can vote for Drive my Car! It's one of my favorite songss and ill vote for it forever

74Golden Slumbers
I couldn't choose between this and the long and winding road. Every song Paul puts out is a jem.
Golden Slumbers sweetly opens up the second half of the Abbey Road medley. This song, combined with "Carry That Weight" and " The End, " is a masterpiece.

I think this song is very underrated. There are songs by the Beatles that I like better then this one, but this one is catchy and has a nice rhythm to it. Give it a listen and you'll see what I mean.
Some great instruments in the background give this song a really wonderful, positive sound. Great vocals and lyrics elevate it into a masterpiece.

80Rocky Raccoon
I had a tough decision over rocky racoon and USSR because I really like RR the best but I know most people would probably like USSR better. RR brings out the cowboy in all of us and tells a great story about a man who loses his lady to another guy and Rocky tries too get her back in a showdown. This is a catchy song and fun to sing.
I loved this song as a kid, listening to my dad's Beatles CDs and I still listen to it frequently today; it never gets old.

This is an interesting song. It's different and cool. Written by Paul McCartney in the album The Beatles.

Too sad that this masterpiece stands at 100. Its not one of the best, but THE BEST song of George Harrison and of course of The Beatles. Just listen to beautiful lyrics and the rendition of the Indian music with tabla uniquely combined with the magical Sitar. A classic masterpiece!
Yall don't know ANYTHING about the beatles, if yall did, yall would vote for this song EASILY! Listen to this song and tell me if its not your favorite song! One of Georges best, if not, the-best

84Two of Us
This is one of the most beautiful Beatles songs. It almost seems to be about the Beatles themselves and their imminent breakup. The harmonies, the guitar, the lyrics - this song is not only a tear-jerker but a relevant masterpiece.
This is an absolutely amazing song and really shows the relationship between Paul and John. It's by far the most underrated song by the Beatles, or possibly ever!

85She's Leaving Home
words and music together convey one of the saddest songs in the beatles archive. Nice use of a harp and strings. Another example of the creativity and varied sound that the beatles were masters at.

gotlbh

Yes... The lyrics are very good, beautiful and evoking of powerful sadness. It is one of the best story-telling songs the Fab Four have ever written. Can't believe it's only at #99. A fantastic song from the best band ever in all of history. 0% votes? Come on! Please patch this up immediately.
The words really do have a poignant meaning. It seemed to happen a lot back in the day

89You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
I dunno why but this song tears my heart out. It should be among the top twenty at least! It's got awesome lyrics, and I totally relate to it.
I've heard all the supposed best beatles song but this one was the best one period, even better than Hey Jude, I prefer Mcartney overall but this lennon song is definitely the best I have heard.
Is a song way ahead of his time. Timeless. Lyrics that seem simple but they head straight to the bones, that's what has always characterized the genius of Lennon. It should be on the top ten, with Something and Don't let me down.

94I Feel Fine
I don't feel too fine with this song so low. This song is really very similar to Yesterday in style and simplicity and awesomeness. The difference is that this one isn't nearly as much of a downer. I fell that I feel fine is like the prelude to yesterday, like We will Rock You and We are the Champions, or Say Goodbye to Hollywood and New York State of Mind.

The one song of theirs where I can't (no matter what) listen to it only once. The harmonies are phenomenal. "*****"!

BKAllmighty

I voted for this although in my list it wouldn't be my first choice (It's much better than any songs from other bands but since The Beatles has so many great songs, this wouldn't even fit to the top 20 in my opinion) but since it's ranked so low, It hink this song really needs votes.
Seriously... Their first #1 Single is at 70?!?! This song deserves to be much higher on the list. It has great harmonies and Paul does a great job of singing such a simple song! GO BEATLES!
