Top Ten Best Lines from Beatles Songs

Alpha101

The Top TenXW

1"Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields. Nothing is real." - Strawberry Fields Forever

Every time that I here theses particular words, they send shivers down my spine. Every time that I hear these words, I can imagine myself wandering through Strawberry Fields. Every time I hear these words...you get what I mean. - Alpha101

To me, it's like an invitation to go on the whole trip with The Beatles - a siren calling out, luring you in... And what a Marvelous trip to take! 😍 - Billyv

2"I saw a film today, oh boy. The English army had just won the war." - A Day in the Life

The best quote of possibly the best song of all time. The whole entire song is fantastic, but, for some reason, this has always been my favorite line of the song. - Alpha101

3"Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers, that grow so incredibly high." - Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

John's emphasis on the word "high" always gets me. The whole song is a big, trippy masterpiece, and this sentence makes it that much better. - Alpha101

4"I get by with a little help from my friends." - With a Little Help From My Friends

One of the Beatles' best songs, in my opinion. The whole chorus is what sells the song, but the first sentence is special to me because I began to realize, without friends, life is difficult and, most of the time, pointless. - Alpha101

5"I'd like to be under the sea, in an octopus's garden in the shade." - Octopus's Garden

One of the best songs off of "Abbey Road." This is also the best line of the song. For some reason, whenever I listen to this song, I envision myself eating seafood in a restaurant. Is that strange? - Alpha101

6"Remember to let her into your heart. Then you can start to make it better." - Hey Jude

Arguably one of the Beatles' best, I particularly love this line because, like "With a Little Help From My Friends," it states that, to me, you should love your enemies, no matter what they might do to you. While this is hard most of the time, I always keep this line in my head. - Alpha101

7"She (We gave her most of our lives) is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives) home (We gave her everything money could buy)." - She's Leaving Home

The voice just sounds so eerie, yet so calming while singing these lines. - Alpha101

The harmony on this gives me chills. Great (or should I say fab? ) list, Alpha101. - PetSounds

8"Will you still be sending me a valentine, birthday greetings, bottle of wine?" - When I'm Sixty-Four

One of my favorites because it's just so catchy, yet so memorable and great at the same time! - Alpha101

9"He say 'I know you, you know me. One thing I can tell you is you got to be free.'" - Come Together

One of the most recognizable quotes from the Beatles. - Alpha101

It's a cool quote - jmepa1234

10"And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make"- The End

Quite possibly the greatest line in the history of popular music.
Legend has it that the take used on the album is the final take, from the final day the boys were ever together in the studio.
They gathered themselves up, and walked out knowing they were the greatest that had ever been, and the greatest that would ever be.
