2 A Day in the Life

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

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

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.

To be honest changed me + me doggies liyfe. thanks mai boyes

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

This was easily one of the Beatles most profound masterpieces. It is, a song, that will never be forgotten, nor shall it grow old, nor shall it fade. It will simply remain one of the most meaningful and well thought songs of the ages. Kudos to Paul McCartney for vocals and to Harrison for the stellar guitar solo. Not to forget Lennon for the background vocals and Ringo on percussion.

Let it be is a magnificent masterpiece of a song. I think that if it were not on the beatles’ worst (though by no means bad) album then it would be up there above “Hey Jude” on this list. A really lovely message too. There will be an answer, just let it be... ✌️

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

Soothing and nice song. Altho I'm a 20s guy I still like tge song. I'm not even a teen. It's a very nice song to listen in quiet timess hahah

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.

George is underrated, yet he delivers arguably one of the best Beatles songs of all time. This is literally what drama does to you.

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.

So weird and unique.

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.

Better than Here Comes th Sun

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

Probably my favourite song of all time. Great lyrics, great vocals by John Lennon. The definition of perfect.

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

A wonderfully dramatic song and possibly the first classical music pop song.

Deep meanings, fantastic lyrics. Couldn't get any better! Absolutely love this song, never gets old.

Top 10 favorite songs:
10. Oh Blah Di- Goofy song that makes you want to sing along.
9. Dig a Pony- So relaxing to listen to. Underrated.
8. Mean Mr. Mustard- Catchy, and fits well in Abbey Road
7. Blue Jay Way- Creepy song that gives you shivers. Cool effects.
6. Doctor Robert- A great rock song with a less rock bridge.
5. Her Majesty- A little skit at the end of Abbey Road. Beautiful.
4. Piggies- The loadspeaker part is fun and the references are everywhere.
3. Eleanor Rigby- So sad and beautiful. Would recommend.
2. I'll follow the sun- A very calm love song. Best early song.
1. Revolution 9- No need to explain, seeing as everyone loves it so much.



This is a joke.

10 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.

'Something' is my favorite love song by the Beatles, and perhaps my favorite Beatle song, followed by 'Here Comes the Sun." I've come to appreciate George more so than the other Beatles in the last few years, simply because I think he was a better song writer and composer (listen to his solo albums later in life, too).

George was content to surrender most of the limelight and glory to Paul and John, which they were all too eager to accept. Not to undermine the brilliance of Lennon or McCartney, because the Beatles by far are the best group of musical geniuses in rock/pop history - but because George was least known or identifiable (shielded in part by the star power, fame, and self-aggrandizement of Lennon/McCartney {George also introverted}) - not many people were interested in his style of song/music, including his poetic lyrics about life and love (too lackluster for fans accustomed to, and zealous for more of the Beatles' unparalleled musical novelty and ...more

The Contenders

11 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!

Really good arrangement. The drums, the unforgettable bass riff, the guitar solos, all adds up to this great masterpiece. Throughout the song, you can listen to the influence of each and every member of the Fab Four, Ringo, George, Paul and John. Powerful lyrics which catches everyone who listens to it and makes everyone reflect upon. Should be higher up the list.

Great song... how come this isn't in the top 10?

12 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 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!

Great Song, great beat, great meaning (or lack of it depending on how you see it). This should be number one

The best for sure! yes there's ADITL and Hey Jude, but the lyrics make no sense - making it more diverse to the tune! - NairnC1704

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.

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.

This USB my favourite why is it so low 🤨

14 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!

this songs, let them go the U. S. A whithout this, you will don't know that the beatles exist so... put it on TOP 10! - andres101

My favorite for many reasons. I'm 13 and I have loved this since I was about 2.

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.

I would say the best song The Beatles didn't write - westofohio

16 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

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

"Picture yourself in a boat on a river, with tangerine trees, and marmalade skies. Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly, a girl with kaleidoscope eyes... "

in my opinion this song is 1 of the best beatles songs

17 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! )

Nothing's gonna change my opinion

18 Penny Lane

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

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...

Brilliant theme, wonderful playing, stunning production, amazing musical ambition combined with a wistful, yearning lyric. Strawberry Fields is incredible, but this tops it.

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

19 With a Little Help from My Friends

This is the best song of all time it's so nice and it is true you get by with a little help from your friends. It helped me lots not joking this song should be in the top 10 THIS IS THE BEST SONG OF ALL TIME I REPEAT BEST SONG OF ALL TIME. NEED MORE VOTES I BEET YOU GET BY WIT A LITTLE HELP FROM YOUR FRIENDS god I love that song so much AND I NEED SOMEONE TO LOVE TOO it's the best vote x

Fantastic song deserves to be great and is a truly inspirational song from a truly inspirational band 'simply the best'!
Deserves to be higher up the list.

You know, there is a couple Beatles songs I like. First off I like prog rock and hard rock more than Beatles slow rock/pop but this song really is inspiring it seems to knock off every other Beatles song. You will find maybe 1 or 2 songs on an album that are greatly underrated but are amazing songs. Like something for nothing by rush, great song so underrated. Personally I think all of rush is underrated. This song is great great rythym good lyrics just blows by all their other stuff.

Personal favourite, has a very warm vibe

20 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"

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.

Number 21?
This could easily replace Here Comes the Sun in the top 5! Vote this, all you need is love is a classic, classic song, one of the most famous in the whole history of music!

21 Helter 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!

Love this song. The reason I love The Beatles so much is because they have so many softer songs that are a pleasure to listen to, but they also have songs like this which are just HEAVY and ROCKING! - Co0lk1d25

I GOT BLISTERS ON MY FINGERS! - JCHOW

22 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

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.

Revolver is far superior to Sgt Peppers and Abbey Road

23 Blackbird

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.

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.

Heard it once... AND have not stopped listening to this song ever since... Feel like singing it as a lullaby to my baby brother..

Subtle poetic lyric that epitomizes hope. Just an acoustic guitar is enough for this one, A bit different from many Beatles songs...it doesn't need to be #1 to be special.

24 Norwegian 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

25 Happiness 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...

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

26 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.

There is a reason Paul opened a tour with this classic

27 Yellow 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

28 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.

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

29 The 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.

It’s not just the end of the album. Or the end of the beatles. It is everything the beatles have ever done in one song.

30 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

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

I would put this in the top 10 or at the very least the top 15. This is a great song.

31 Get 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.

This is better then hey jude

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 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

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

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.

35 Don't Let Me Down

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

This is my favourite Beatles song it is honestly so beautiful. Not only is the chorus magnificent, but the verses are too! This should be higher on the list.

I was very please with "Don't Let Me Down"to be underrated and be at #60.

Only here? come on, its an amazing song.

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

A country mostly located on the Iberian Peninsula in Europe. The country's mainland is bordered to the south and east by the Mediterranean Sea except for a small land boundary with Gibraltar ; to the north and northeast by France, Andorra, and the Bay of Biscay ; and to the west and northwest by Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean. Spanish territory includes two large archipelagoes, the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands off the African Atlantic coast, two cities, Ceuta and Melilla, on the African mainland and several small islands in the Alboran Sea near the African coast. Spain is the only European country to have a border with an African country

"let me hear your balalaikas ringing out!"

This is definitely one of the better songs in "The White Album" and has a good sound. One thing I still can't figure out is if George or Paul sings this song.

I like this song because it's a good rock n" roll song, but also is a great song to listen to, sing to, and enjoy. George has an awesome solo, Paul sings it great and in part of the song they sound like the Beach Boys. Over all, It's a fun song to dance to and is a joy to a lot of Beatles fans.

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

Another Beatles song where you never forget the words. - olliv

39 We 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.

This is probably one of most underrated of them all

41 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

How could it 43 first of all this is very original song not like others. And even I like other Beatles songs this is more than a song think carefully

The majority of The Beatles music is original, Take Strawberry Fields Forever or I Am the Walrus for example, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is still a very underrated Beatles song in my opinion but as I said before, majority of their music was original. - BigDaddyPeach

I memorized all of the words and it is my second favorite song but if rocky racoon was never made this song would be my favorite

This song is one of the best song ever, it's just so catchy! It deserves at least in the top 10!

Surprisingly low! - olliv

42 Abbey Road Medley

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 song over all just has great sound and I love how it tells a story

Perfect medley of songs that closes off the greatest Beatles album

Beautiful songs strung together.You can feel the emotion through Paul's voice particularly in Golden Slumbers.Love it.

43 I'm Only Sleeping

I personally think that this is an amazing song. It's not one of their more popular songs because it's pretty simple, but I still think it's beautiful. I love the expressions John uses in his voice. "I'm Only Sleeping" is probably one of my favorite songs by the Beatles. Also, one of my favorite bands, The Vines, remade this song, and did a fairly decent job at it. Even my dad, who is a Beatles fanatic and flower child, really liked their cover of the song.

This song is very underrated. Has some great reversed guitar solos, and nice vocals. - IronSabbathPriest

Most overrated Beatles song. It's true masterpiece. It's felts me like...

Best one

44 Eight Days a Week

More innovation with the idea of a fade in to the start of the song. A nice collaboration that bounces along. Surprised it hasn't popped up sooner but it shows the depth of the beatles legacy - gotlbh

This is my childhood song! It is brilliant and contains everything that everyone loves about The Beatles.

This is my favourite song!

Greatest song period.

46 The Long and Winding Road

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 subsequent naked. 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.

How is this so low!? Naked version is simply beautiful

It is just a very buetiful song.

47 Octopus's Garden

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
Peace out

48 Oh! Darling

Paul's best vocal performance ever, in fact the best Beatles vocal performance ever. It was also a John Lennon favorite and he wanted to sing lead on this song... Happy Paul did instead as in my opinion he was a far better singer.

The young Paul McCartney leaves nothing behind when he screams out the vocals. It is absolutely phenomenal.

Personal favorite, SORRY, ALL PAUL AT HIS BEST! - John09

Love this s ong

49 Here, There and Everywhere

How is this not rated higher on the list. John Lennon said that this was his favorite Beatles song ever. It's just so pretty.

This song may not be the best song beatles had made, but it makes me feel that beatles were real psychiartrists/scientists in the field of music. They just make your mind blow. I wish I were in their time for I would die to hear them play live

Classic. Best song from Revolver. Probably the 2nd most beautiful melody McCartney ever produced, next to "Hey Jude", of course.

Simply beautiful. Not just the most underrated Beatle song, but one of the most underrated songs of all time.
