Beatles Songs with the Best Harmonies

The Beatles are well known for creating great vocal harmonies within their songs. I want to see which ones are the best. Feel free to add any songs that I might have missed. The more prominent the harmonies are throughout the song, the higher precedent the song has on the list. Also, no cover songs please: I want to concentrate on the Fabs' original material.

The Top Ten

1 Because

Probably has their most and ornate sounding harmonies. The Beatles triple tracked their harmonies (9 voices in total! ) to get a rich, full sound. - Gg2000

2 This Boy

This Boy was the original b-side to "I Wanna Hold Your Hand". The Beatles took their doo-wop influences to the forefront and sang three-part harmony throughout the verses. - Gg2000

3 Nowhere Man

The harmonies throughout this song are to die for, especially the "ah-la-la-la" harmonies in the b-section. - Gg2000

4 Paperback Writer

The stacked vocal harmonies before each verse are incredible and very clever. When I first heard it, I thought, "What is this?!? ". - Gg2000

5 Yes It Is

The group sings the verses in three-part harmony like they do in "This Boy". - Gg2000

6 If I Needed Someone

The harmonies in the verses and in the instrumental break are gorgeous. - Gg2000

7 I Feel Fine

The background harmonies throughout this song are tremendous. I thought the idea of singing "I'm so glad- ooh" during the chorus was very clever. - Gg2000

8 Tell Me Why

The call-and-response between John and all the Beatles in the verses makes this song great. - Gg2000

9 Baby's in Black

The harmonies here have a strong country-and western influence. John and Paul come up with some interesting intervals. - Gg2000

10 There's a Place

Probably has some the best harmonies on the Please Please Me album. - Gg2000
