Best Beatles Songs

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Blackbird

I adore this song a bit too much, I listened to it for the first time in 2005 and it has been one of my favorite songs 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... AND 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.

Love this song

22Helter 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

And on this day, heavy metal was born - marmalade_skies

23Yellow Submarine

One of Ringo's finest songs to have sung!

I can't believe the Real Love version is now rare. Still, each version is excellent!

This song is beautiful, lyrical, and one of the great iconic songs the Beatles produced! I can't help but be swept up by the momentum and happiness whenever I listen to it, and of course the movie it inspired is incredible too!

This song is very werid, it's random and epic, and also cool, we all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, and so on. llo

I don't know what they were thinking when they let Ringo sing this song

24Norwegian 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

The best song nice sitar played by Harrison

25Revolution

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.

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

I can see why hey jude's first, I want to hold your hand should be second, and this one third even though it's my favorite. - Queen-aholic

I imagine the voice at the beginning sounds like a pterodactyl

26All 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"

This is there best song ever in my book.

HOW IS THIS NUMBER 23?
It's such an amazing song. All you ned is love!

Actly, all you need is the Beatles.

It seems at least this is getting higher but I honestly think it deserves to be in the top ten.

27Happiness Is a Warm Gun

How this is 32. It's in my top 5 for sure, and I know all Beatles Songs. Maybe it's just my taste, but the tone, the optimistic lyrics, the changing moments, the chorus, I think it's a masterpiece from any point you listen it.
Seriously, I'm a little confused about this top tens...

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.

John Lennon sang this song, unless you mean the background singing

My favourite Beatles song and second favorite song of all time. - willsinn

The Breeders did a good cover of this song

28Hello Goodbye

This is one of there best songs I can't believe it is this low. Go do baseball amazing son

I love this song. It has a great music video too. I love the Beatles! They're the best!

This is EASILY Top 5. What on earth is it doing at 57? I feel like I'm overflowing with all the world's happiness when I listen to this song. The Magical Mystery Tour Singles were the best songs they wrote. I can't believe people would vote for Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane, but leave this behind.

Their most catchy song - marmalade_skies

29A Hard Day's Night

It's really catchy 'It's been a hard days night and I've been working, like a dog.. It's been a hard days night I should be sleeping like alog, and when I get home to you I find the things that you do, you make me feel alright' Soawesome! - Ally131

My favorite early Beatles record. The interchange of lead vocals between John an Paul are a standout. It has sentimental value for it was the first Beatles record I heard when collecting a record player with my then teenage cousin back on a hot summers day in 1964 when I was just six years old. The shop owner played it because it was number one! I have been a Beatles music fan ever since.

I don't know why people vote this song too much lower. Best Beatles riff solo and it's middle eight. In my opinion greatest Beatles song in pre-help era.

Great song to listen to up late studying

30The End

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! - gotlbh

I like this song mostly because of the awesome drum solos and, I think, George Harrison's best guitar solo. Even though there's not much singing, the Beatles still do a good job putting the lyrics together.

The most profound sentence in the history of music.

Even after almost 50 years, it still thrills

31Get Back

"Get Back" is totally my best song ever in my life because its galloping-like beat makes you dance so hard that you may sweat hardly! Hope that you would like this song. Luckily it got number one in both in United States, in United Kingdom and in other countries of the world.
This song is intended to be the Beatles' second greatest song ever, behind "Hey Jude". Congrats Paul McCartney, You've got the best performance on that song with your band mates!

Get back is amazing should be in top ten.
Jojo was a boy get back get back rocks it is the best I've heard.
Thanks Beatles you rock

"Get Back" is my most favorite Beatles song ever because its galloping-like beat can make you dance hard that sweats you hardly! Hope that you would like it. This song is strongly intended to be in the top two, behind "Hey Jude".
This song reached number one in America, in Britain and in other countries of the world. Congrats Sir Paul McCartney, you did the great job of this songs and you rock me hard along with your bandmates.

Should be in top 10

32Ticket To Ride

Sure hard to decide, but this one is my favorite, I think

The is a cool and fun song that is always fun to hear. Written by John Lennon with Paul McCartney in the album Help!.

I think I'm gonna be sad,
I think it's today, yeah.
The girl that's driving me mad
Is going away.
She's got a ticket to ride,
But she don't care. PERFECTION! And the drums are amazing! The best song of The Beatles

This is my favorite old Beatles song

33I Want You (She's So Heavy)

This song is so intense it blows my mind every time I listen to it

One of the greatest songs ever! Its very dark. At the end when it starts to get more and more distorted is just amazing! - dragon13304

Why is this song not even in the top 30!? It should be in the top 10!

My favorite song ever recorded... I marvel over every detail. The sound becomes so polarizing it toys with my senses. This song effects me like no other.. Beautiful chaos.

34She Loves You

WITH A LOVE LIKE THAT, YOU KNOW YOU SHOULD BE GLAD!
this song really rocks! - rock2metal

His was literally the first Beatles song I've ever heard, and I loved it immediately. This song just makes me want to wiggle around and giggle. Its adorable! :3

Best in 1963 beside I Want To Hold Your Hand. #32? What a joke? "She loves you yeah yeah yeah". Simply brilliant. Yeah I know there's to many Beatles great song. But this song is simply masterpiece should be at top 15

Brilliant song! Their best from the early years. The harmonies give me chills.

35She 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. - gotlbh

That's what she said - RecklessGreed

36Nowhere Man

Really fresh sounding still after all these years. The melody is so memorable and the guitars are soaring.

The reason my favorite beatles song is nowhere man is because it just never gets old every other song gets old after a while but this one never does! I love the beatles!

This is the best song of that period in their writing Beatles 65 - Rubber Soul

Great song, can never get old

37You 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.

By far the most underrated Beatles song, quite possibly even top 10 material. It's the perfect start to the Abbey Road Medley, which was the final and most amazing composition by The Beatles. The arpeggiated guitar pretty much represents what made them iconic - how they kept experimenting with new styles even at the very end.

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.

So beautiful

38We Can Work It Out

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

We can work it out is the really best song of the Beatles I think! You must listen for the sound.

The best of the beatles hands down

39Day Tripper

day tripper has a great guitar intro. the best beatles song. - willhiltonmitch

Right now this is at #36 which shows how many great songs the Beatles had. I think this was their best guitar work in any song they did. It takes me back to those days of bell bottoms and long hair. Those were fun times.

Day tripper is the best Beatles song

40For No One

The French horn solo is the epitome of awesomeness. Overall, BOSS.

I agree so much with the last comment. This song is really beautiful, and in my opinion one of their best songs

This was just a little bit hilarious song and makes my feelings tickle by its melody and its lyrics, too.

One of my favorites from paul - marmalade_skies
