2 A Day in the Life

Greatest song from the greatest album of Rock N' Roll history

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.

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

10 times better than Hey Jude

3 Let 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 it's not #1 it's the the embodyment of hope & wisdom because without faith you have truly lost your way in life

They weren't all atheists, George Harrison wrote a hit about Jesus - Alkadikce

Number 1 Beatles song. Number 1 song of the 70s. In regards to lyrics & Bob Dylan, he takes the proverbial backseat to McCartney on the strength of this song.

Best Song ever made.

4 Yesterday

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. - Unknown16

I think that this is the best Beatles song. Pulls at the emotion strings. Great lyrics.

5 Here 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.

This and Something are the greatest Beatles songs written by George Harrison!

6 Strawberry 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.

One of the best

7 While 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.

This song brought wonder to my life. I can't believe its rank. - joshsanz

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.

While my guitar gently weeps is a great song!

8 In My Life

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

THERE ARE PLACES I REMEMBER (This song was so good but so were (almost) all beatle songs)

9 Eleanor 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

The strings are so beautiful.

If you look around, you'll see all the lonely people.

Hauntingly beautiful.

10 Come Together

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

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!

Groovy, great lyrics and creative bassline. A very good song.

Amazing

The Contenders

11 Something

It's clear that John and Paul were the strongest songwriters in the Fab Four, but we know in the later years (when they were both at their best) that they hardly listened to each other. George spent years in the background, quietly biding his time and taking in as much information as he could from two of the greatest songwriters in history. His epic final statement is Something, which showcases all the different elements that made The Beatles so incredible: beautiful texture and instrumentation, unusual but incredibly effective chord changes, fantastic individual performances (Ringo's drums, Paul's bass, George's gorgeous solo). George mastered the art of writing a perfect Beatles song, something I don't think Paul and John could ever say they did. It's hard to compare the emotional capacity of this song to the likes of Hey Jude, Stawberry Fields, Penny Lane, etc. , but I don't know (I don't knooow! ) if any Beatles song is as perfectly written and recorded as Something. I mean, ...more

(In reply to comment 2 of this thread claiming this song belonged to someone else) So Wrong - Frank Sinatra covered George's Beatles' song, and fully and appropriately credited it to them and saluted it as in his opinion "one of the best love songs ever written" - and Sinatra mastered Many of those. - Billyv

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.

"Greatest love song ever written"

12 I 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!

Probably their best songs of their early years. Such a high quality songs for over 55 years ago! - micahisthebest

From the intro to the chorus, everything is so cool!

13 Help!

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.

The Beatles are the greatest band of all time and for some reason, this has always been my favorite of their songs! "Help" somehow manages to be simultaneously a cry for, well, help AND a joyous celebration! It's so catchy yet so heartfelt!

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.

14 I 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!

This song makes no sense, and yet it's absolutely brilliant.
In fact that's way this song works so well, in addition the song sounds good too.

The important moral of this song: Always write songs when you're high. (sorry)

This song is kind of like the "Pink Elephants On Parade" of the Beatles. It's so bizarre that it actually makes you wonder if you were on something before watching the video. Seriously, I am the egg man? I am the walrus? What the fudge does that have to do with anything? I'm not saying this is bad, oh no, I'm saying that no matter how weird, scary or all-around strange it is, there is just one element that just makes you want to watch the music video again and again. This song is psychedelic genius!

15 Twist 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.

John's voice in this is gold. - Misfire

16 All 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"

Greatest song ever written. This combination of an anthem melody "Love love love" with for that for Lennon typical hammering on the sam note in the chorus, before the little step up in the meody. Climax and resolve. Marvellous.

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.

17 Hello, 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.

Simple, yet amazing track. I may even like this more than Strawberry Fields Forever.

18 Across 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...

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.

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! )

The best song ever written.

20 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

This song's a bit strange, but I still like it anyway. - Misfire

I absolutely love this song! Should be in the Top 5 along with Help! and Strawberry Fields Forever

Its funny and creative. It makes me think of a child with wide imagination. Love it!

21 Yellow Submarine

How the hell is this 5 on the WORST Beatles song list?!

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!

I grew up to this song...

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!

22 Penny Lane

This song sucks sike

The Piccolo Trumpet solo is to die for. Ought to be number one really. A brilliant fusion of Baroque and rock!

I love this song I play it in my school band.

When the music gods came down from mount Olympus they had 3 sons who were left at the fire station on penny lane. When they grew up they chanded there names to Ringo, Paul, and George. They wrote this song together...

23 Helter Skelter

This certainly isn't the best Beatles song. That title goes to A Day in the Life. But this is my favorite Beatles song. And I don't even like heavy metal. - PinkHeno

This song is so modern, when you listen to it, you feel it could have been written yesterday.

RACE WAR

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.

24 Tomorrow 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 sounds nothing at all like a song of the 60s. It could equally have been written recently or in the future and still sound contemporary. A song written around a single chord and driven along relentlessly by drum and bass style break beats, in 1965, 30 years before mainstream music develops the drum and bass style! Honestly where on earth were these guys getting this from? You just got to listen and admire the sheer creativity and innovation. - gotlbh

Innovative and ahead of it's time. Revolver is the greatest Beatles album.

This would be the best Beatles track, in my opinion. Released in 1966, the Beatles opened up the scene for real psychedelic music. Always ahead of their time, the Beatles played numerous instruments on limited tracks, played sections backwards and included noise, like whistles, horns, traffic, talking. Revolver was where the Beatles really experimented with sound and became the best and most influential band of all time.

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.

25 Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)

How is this 25? Should definitely be top 20 - AlexZoraj

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!

Why is this song down here? Should be top 20 at best

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.

26 A 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

I love this song so much. Low-key listen to it everyday along with all my other favorite Beatles songs.

My friends all ask what I'm listening to, I say Beatles and they grumble along and listen to some crap artist like Justin Bieber.

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.

This has to be in the top ten - rocker1796

27 Happiness is a Warm Gun

Weird ass song, but genius musicianship. John's vocals are perfectly delivered

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...

An unreal song, arguably their best, and somewhat overlooked.

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 creation! You can tell by the witty and catchy lyrics! - Pfeifferpfan

28 Day 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 has one of the best guitar intros I’ve ever heard. It should be way higher up the list!

Day tripper is the best Beatles song

Feeling a bit sad that this song is only at number 23. In my opinion I think it deserves much more recognition. But to be honest this just shows how many amazing Beatles songs there are. This is at least in my top 5 Beatles songs.

30 The End

This is one of the best

How is this #31?

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.

31 Don't Let Me Down

The rooftop performance is amazing! Youtube it! The transformation from mop tops to artists is complete and we get one last view of their magic.

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. - gotlbh

Best song ever! I never get bored of it. hands down the most underrated song by them.

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

This is perfect from start to finish. Simple, straightforward and sublime

I think I'm gonna be sad,

34 Revolution

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.

Should be in the top tens

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

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.

"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.

38 The Long and Winding Road

This is one of the saddest songs I have ever heard.

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 Beatles Anthology 3. 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. - gotlbh

Gorgeous, completely immersive and ethereal tune. Listening to it never ceases to bring the chills.

I just want this song higher on the list. Totally extraordinary songwriting from Lennon, and wonderful harmonies. Also, it features on their best album, Rubber Soul.

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!

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

42 I've Just Seen a Face

Simply the best song ever, country, rock and roll the combination is beautiful, indeed, a Beatles song. Only they can do stuff this way!

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.

Discovered this song not so long ago, and it became one of my favorite songs the first time I listened to it. Tells a lot about how great the beatles are when this song is ranked 67. I do think it should be in the top 20 though. - KurtCocain

Even though it wasn't in the movie, it was a great song for "Help". A simple song with wonderful guitar and vocals, as well as everything else. It is pure wonder.

As the years have passed the second side of the abbey Road album has got more and more attention because of the "suite" of songs from "you never give me your money" through to "the end". All told about 17 minutes or so of continous music that was clearly designed to be heard as one continous piece. It has the repeated theme of "you never give me your money" to show the listener that it is in fact one long song of many parts. And oh my God what a stunning piece of music it is, blurring the boundaries between pop and classical like never before or since. It's beautiful. If we are now looking back on this "suite" as in fact a song consisting of several parts it is in my view the best song they ever composed. - gotlbh

This is really a medley of eight songs. It is the band’s greatest piece. I think this is the tracklist:
You Never Give Me Your Money
Sun King
Mean Mr. Mustard
Polythene Pam
She Came in Through the Bathroom Window
Golden Slumbers
Carry That Weight
The End

47 If I Fell

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

The harmonizing in this song is flawless.
Just a beautiful ballet, proving John can right great ballets despite his reluctance to admit it.

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.

One of my favorite song of the Beatles whi is it 46

48 All My Loving

I think this is one of Paul's best. The lyrics are great and I love Paul's vocals. My favorite part is "All my loving, I will send to you, all my loving, darling I'll be true". Just can't get over its greatness.

This Song gives me immense happiness, and invokes that feeling of love in ones mind, it also speaks of true loyalty and love, making it the best..

It is really hard to rank Beatles songs because they're all so good, but this one should be moved up. However, I'll admit the hardest part is deciding what to move down.

Oh this song is really great, It should be in top 10
I played it for my girlfriend and she was like aw

49 Hey, Bulldog

That piano riff is so catchy! Its just an amazing song, I love paul's barking at the end of the song!

The Song is catchy and has a great bass. What more can you ask from a Beatles song.

Ridiculously catchy bass, distinctive vocals, thoughtful (if a bit cryptic) lyrics... it's /weird/ in the best sense of the term, and it certainly sounds like they're having fun with it. Easily one of their best.

Another song where the Beatles show their second-tier stuff isn't second-tier stuff.

50 Rain

Its light years beyond anything that other artists were tinkering with in 1966 - it is the sound of the 60's and lucky to have been there at the time tethered into the confines of a victorian boarding school

THE most underrated Beatles song in all of their catalog. People really need to branch out a little bit more with their music. The Beatles isn't just all "Hey Jude" and "I wanna hold your hand". John and Paul had some amazing stuff that you never hear.

Nobody ever talks about this song and i don't understandy why? - BKAllmighty

Just listen to the drumming on this song and compare it to everything else going on in 1965 (I think it was 65,or 66). Where on earth were these guys getting these ideas and rhythms from? And they buried it on a B side single and never put it on an album! Oh and the bass line is insane as well.
