Best Songs From the Beatles' Revolver

The Top TenXW

1Eleanor Rigby

My 11th grade English teacher, who happened to also be my mother, made us read this song and study it as a poem, and then she played it for us. She did the same for "Sounds of Silence". I've loved it since then. - Blue_Devereaux

As an amateur music writer, I am very fascinated by two melodies going at the same time (which I think is called counter-point). It is really fantastic at the end when "All the Lonely People, Where do they all come from" and "III Look at all the lonely people" go at the same time

This truly DOES deserve to be 1#. 'Eleanor Rigby'is a true masterpiece- Beautiful, yet the Beatles manage to balance just the right amount of emotion for this, not too dramatic yet not completely emotionless. I play this song over and over again and never get tired of hearing it.

One of their saddest songs. - marmalade_skies

2Tomorrow Never Knows

Very advanced for it's time, and better than this new garbage of the 21st century. The best on Revolver and one of the best songs by the band. 1. Tomorrow Never Knows 2. And You're Bird Can Sing 3. I'm Only Sleeping 4. Here, There and Everywhere 5. Love you to

It has a very interesting vibe, along with interesting instrumentation including backwards guitar and somewhat random tape loops. Still, it is popular, and for a reason at that.

Modern than today's modern song

3Here, There and Everywhere

Beautiful delicate melody and one of Paul's best compositions.

I think Paul said that this was his favorite song.

4I'm Only Sleeping

This is so beautiful and idyllic! It always reminds me of blue skies and the white clouds bobbling along! I guess it tells us about the joys of dreaming... Whoch I wholeheartedly agree with. George's reversed guitar solos take it to an entirely different level, while Paul's sleepy bass playing adds to the pleasently lazy feel...

Best of all possible Beatles songs. Ethereal, wispy, hard at times, and Rhythm and Bluse as HELL!

5Taxman

Definitely in my top 3 favorite songs off of Revolver! But, of course, Revolver is just flat out one of The Beatles best albums, if not, their best - kaitlynrad11

Bitter yet comedic lyrics that fit perfectly for Harrison's voice. The distorted guitar is beautiful and the solo is great

This is one epic protest song! George's vocals, Paul's bass and lead playing... WOAH! Definitely one of Harrison's best ones!

Taxman epic solo and one of george's best. Paul nails the solo

6She Said She Said

I love this song- it's a better way to hear dialogue: The arguments of a man and a woman about feeling death but it clearly has more emphasis and is more intense, unlike taking in real life

7And Your Bird Can Sing

This song totally rocks. One of their best. Don't know why Lennon hated it so much? Maybe could have been longer. But for what it's worth it's an excellent song that can get you rocking out.

This is a top tune the lead is tops and it just shows the talent they all had I can not imagine the world with out the Beatles they gave so much I thank them for the joy and love they gave

The only flaw with this song is that it is too short.

Justin Bieber is the bird!

8For No One

It is a beautiful song that expresses the pain associated with the loss of a long time lover. Using phrases like, "She no longer needs you" and "In her eyes, you see nothing" McCartney shows the anxiety and stress a broken soul feels after a disheartening break-up.

This is one of the saddest songs they have ever made, and that is saying something considering it's the Beatles. One of the only Beatles songs to make me tear up, along with She's Leaving Home, In My Life and a few others.

The melody is beautiful, the piano playing is beautiful (piano is my favorite) and when the flute and the chorus go at the same time, I know that there is a God because how else could something so beautiful happen?

Maybe my favorite song of Paul. Great melody. The lyrics are so relatable. - marmalade_skies

9Got To Get You Into My Life

McCartney later, during his solo years, admitted this was about pot. Even so, it sends a clear message from the singer that he wants you in his life. We are allowed to read into a song's lyrics and what I thought was the singer wanting her in his life seemed sophisticated and visceral at the same time. - mgenet

In the fade to the song McCartney sings "Look what you've done to my life." This perhaps in some way adds to it being about pot.

I'm not actually sure this is the best song on the album, but I'm positive it deserves better than spot 10.

Great song. Criminally underrated

10Yellow Submarine

"Yellow Submarine" is one of my favorites. This song is intended to be the best song of their seventh studio album Revolver for it peaked in the US Billboard Hot 100 at number two.

11Good Day Sunshine

The happiness is insane! I don't know what, but something just works about this song.

I confused George for John here. - marmalade_skies

14Love You To

Best song ever! Harrison killed it once again! I like the sitar and other instruments that are in this song. It has great flow and I never skip it on my iTunes playlist!

Harrison's Indian rock is just so out there, but somehow manage to feel fitting to the album. I love them all.

Adds to the psychedelic feel of the record. - marmalade_skies

Awesome song
