Best Beatles SongsThe best songs from the greatest and most influential rock and roll band ever.
My absolute favorite song... It's just the message knot only for Julian) but everyone's movement is on his/ her shoulder. And nobody can stay silent at the Nananas
I think it's pointless arguing, as pretty much all of the top 10, and even further below are of equally amazing standard, and all could be number one for me. True, I voted for While My Guitar Gently Weeps, but that was more to do with the fact that it was George's first great song, and also featured an amazing solo by Eric Clapton. Let's face it. No-one is going to agree on a favourite Beatles song, because there are just so many good songs. I bet the song down at fifty is a good song.
I can't describe this song its beautiful its like describing the flavor of water its really hard...
The beatles will always be with me til my grace -Peace and love people
I have always identified this song as mine. John Lennon wrote this song for his son Julian. My name is Jillian, which is the feminine form of Jillian. Most of my family members and friends have "Beatle" names. My grandma is a Rita, and my middle name is also Rita. I have an Aunt Eleanor. My uncle is named William but we call him Bill. I have three friends names Lucy, Robert, and Julia. My teachers first name is Michelle. Some of my close friends(jokingly) call me Madonna.
This song is so excellently performed with john lennon's low, depressed, sad vocals, then there's a loud symphany that is like the whole world is spinning faster and faster and faster like a twister and then it takes us to Paul McCartney's positive, up-beat, voice. It's the tip of the hat. Basically, the song title says itself. It takes us into a day in the life. John Lennon describes the negatives and lows while taking the information from a newspaper or film, however, Paul McCartney takes us into a positive day of getting up, going to work, and having a smoke. Who aso could forget the famous drug reference line, "I'd love to turn you on. " Done beautifully by John lenmnon. All in all, this song should be number one and everything is just wondderful in the song. Very well done.
Sorry but how is Hey Jude ranked above this? Don't get me wrong, Hey Jude is a great, catchy anthem, but this song is in a different league entirely. This is probably the deepest, most emotionally powerful piece in the history of rock music.
Hey Jude is an amazing and very famous rock songs, but there are plenty of those. Queen, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, etc. have all produced huge hits similar to Hey Jude. It's THIS song, A Day in the Life, that really sets the Beatles apart from those other bands, and frankly makes them look dime-a-dozen by comparison.
I am willing to make a case that this is the greatest song ever written, composed, and recorded. EVER. There are two completely different parts of this song. And each part compliments the other PERFECTLY. This is Lennon-McCartney at its finest by far. I could go on and on about this one. It is an absolute masterpiece. It's got such a simple theme, but it's so intriguing to listen to at the same time. This is, in my opinion, the best Beatles song, without a doubt. There will never be anything like this ever again.
This is the first song by the Beatles that I fell in love with. The Sgt. Pepper's album is a masterpiece!
And I see most of the songs in the list are their most famous ones - just because it's a famous song doesn't mean it's one of their best. I personally think A Day In the Life, Helter Skelter, I Want You (She's So Heavy), I've Got A Feeling or For No One are their best songs. I love them all but the most underrated ones tend to be the better ones.
Long life for the Beatles!
Such an appropriate song to go out on. Of course we all know that the song is about Paul's mother, but it has a nice final message to Beatles fans. The song's message to the fans in wake of the Beatles break-up that there will be an answer and to let it be. "And when the brokenhearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer, let it be". This and the album, just a brilliant ending to a brilliant career.
This song is just so beautiful and sad. Paul McCartney sounds really emotional in this song and the lyrics are meaningful. One of my favourite songs of all time.
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.
It's a great song. Great melody, wonderful message, great singing, great composition.
Unfortunately I cannot put it in even my Top 10 Beatles songs. Horrible kids today feel the need to "love" this song to be aesthetically different from their piers. It happens with a lot of other classic songs, too. But this song takes the worst of it.
This song is the best, it's so good I can't stop listening to it. George Harrison is the best singer on The Beatles,
My favourite Beatles Member:
1st George Harrison
2nd Paul McCartney
3rd Ringo Starr
4th John Lennon
My favourite songs by The Beatles:
1st Here comes the sun
2nd Penny Lane
3rd Let it be
4th All you need is love
5th Strawberry fields forever
7th I wanna hold your hand
8th Hey Jude
9th Lucy in the sky with diamonds
10th She loves you
The Beatles is the best boy band EVER!
And George Harrison is the best singer EVER!.
There are precious few songs that change my mood immediately, let alone make me feel instantly happy every single time I listen to it. I could be fired, evicted, deported, and left all alone homeless on the streets with nothing left to my name, and if I hear this song at all, just for that 3 minutes, there's peace and happiness, as if it's my 5th birthday all over again.
George Harrison was largely under appreciated. He is as much of a genius as a musician and songwriter as John or Paul. Sure, he didn't match their legacy in monetary worth but George is an absolute master of music. Something and Here Comes the Sun, both created by George, are the greatest songs by the Beatles.
Always been a huge fan of George and as I kid I always heard this song. It wasn't until I was older that I found out this song was a Beatles song and from my fave Beatles none the less. It just brightens my mood and day. Beautiful song by a beautiful man.
This songs makes me perfectly feel the pain and the bass of this song make it even better... I think this should be thwir no. 3 song not no.4... It's really hard to rank the beatles' songs because all of their songs are good in one way or the other so I don't really care of like one their most listened songs is really below some other so you can say I voted just to vote for them... I love the beatles and I'm proud that their was a band called the beatles... They will be in our hearts forever even if they are not here... So for the beatles...
In my opinion, this is the Beatles best song just because the lyrics are simply heartfelt, and it makes the listener feel a part and a connection to the song. The history behind it is also fascinating, and is so influential as it talks about change, and how change can occur so rapidly and so suddenly. In life, you have to face things like that, and you have to know how to overcome those changes. That is what this song is about.
It's a truly beautiful song, full of the sorrow on par with (It's Hard) Letting You Go. (What can I say? I'm biased.) I've seen the movie Yesterday (twice), and honestly, I don't think it does the song justice. It's a good movie, but it had big shoes to fit in. If I recall correctly (SPOILER ALERT) the song is only played once, and the movie could've been called The Long And Winding Road or anything else. But to my point, it's a beautiful song.
The Beatles really knew how to write lyrics!
It's either this, In My Life or Let It Be for my favorite lyrically by them. They just made them so simply and they didn't overdo it, and it was so subtle, but so hard-hitting. Only Bob Dylan and maybe Pink Floyd surpasses them.
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.
One of their most experimental recordings but also one of their most melodic. Lennon's lyrics are surreal and make absolutely no sense while somehow making perfect sense at the same time. A highly understated yet expressive vocal performance from Lennon as well. The combination creates a vivid masterpiece of sound that hadn't been created before and hasn't been matches since. When you've been listening to the Beatles since age 3, it's almost futile to decide on their best song, but this one consistently stands out for me. Long live the Fab Four
Strawberry Fields is not only the best Beatles song, it's the best song ever written. I truly believe the emotion it portrays is put across perfectly even from the first listen - nostalgia. The song, with its strange psychedelic sound and confusing yet understandable lyrics, gives you a feeling of familiarness and wonder that hasn't yet been matched by anything else I've heard. The beauty of this song is something I can't describe in words, please, go and listen to it.
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.
Picking the top ten Beatle songs is nearly impossible, when you look at their entire body of work. It's why they are the best band of all time. Eventually it comes down to individual taste, and possibly how an individual relates to each song. For me, this is easily the best song on the White Album, and in my top three of all their songs. Thanks for this site, and giving everyone an opportunity to share how this great music touched them. Thanks to everyone who voted. I truly enjoy reading all the thoughtful comments.
While My Guitar Gently Weeps is a nice emotional accoustic strummed song with a great lead guitar part played by Clapton.
Then the solo comes in. The solo is one of, if not the, greatest guitar solo of all time. It's very Clapton, and is played perfectly. Clapton is known for his blues-rock solos, and this is no exception. The solo is similar to Stairway to Heaven, but is maybe better.
The somg is good in the same way as Stairway, and is about equal quality, but that just shows that this song is that good. Very underrated. Should be #2 or #1.
The guitar taking over and becoming the singer whilst the musicians become its instruments is the pinnacle of rock music. And there are no limits to the scope of the guitar solo. Every accomplished rock guitarist needs to tackle it and lay down their own expression of what the guitar, crying out to us about the human condition, sounds like.
A Day in the Life is one of the Beatle's most overrated songs ever. This right here is where it's at. This is the reason why I love Harrison's later works. It doesn't have that many lyrics but it doesn't need them that much. You can probably get the very deep and powerful point he's trying to make just through the sheer instrumental. This song NEEDs the be higher on the list. It truly does.
I am a huge Beatles fan and this song is my all time favorite. It is very simple. It has meaningful, thought provoking lyrics. And above all it relates with all of us. This should be #1 but I think John Lennon's masterpiece doesn't need that title to touch everyone that hears it.
This song is beautiful both melodically and lyrically...John lennon vocal performance, the guitar the drums and the baroque-influenced piano solo ( harpsichord) is the icing on the cake..so melancholic yet brilliant and lovely... This song is also probably the most meaningful by The Beatles
This song is the absolute epitome of the Beatles. It captures the very essense of what a pop song should be, a formula that the Beatles basically wrote. A great guitar hook combined with simply vocal melody and 3-part harmonies. To top it off the lyrics speak to everyone.
ONLY the Beatles could have something this great be just another tune from their list.
At one time this was voted the greatest song ever written, but what I don't understand is how John Lennon could possibly have written this while in his mid-20's, as it involves a depth of feeling that should only be possible of someone near the end of their [long] life.
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.
The first time I heard this song, I thought "How could anyone but the the Beatles thing of such beautiful lyrics? " The orchestral tune to this song blew me away, leaving a lasting impression on me. Combined with the largely meaningful lyrics, this song is ultimately my favorite Beatles song ever made. I feel that there is no other song that could beat it in the category of uniqueness. I would give this song 20/10.
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.
There is something absolutely magical about this song. I (62 and having seen the Beatles in 64) have always thought this was one of the very best narrative pieces. Strangely almost every kid in my daughter's generation (17) rank it as one of their very favorite Beatles songs. Not in the least engmatic as "A Day in the Life" or anthematic as "Hey Jude" or "All you need is Love" still it cuts through all of that as a plain but hugely powerful lament that just gets to everyone. "wearing a face that she keeps in a jar by the door." "all the lonely people..where do they all come from." wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave, no one was saved." Whoa!
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
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.
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!
Think of rolling up to a stoplight, windows (or top) down, stereo blasting when a group of fine ladies (or men, if that's what you're into) pulls up next to you. What Beatles song are do you want to have represent you? Here comes the sun? Hey Jude? I want to hold your hand!?! No question for me. Come Together is timeless.
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
George Harrison was largely under appreciated. He is almost as much of a genius musician and songwriter as John or Paul. Sure, he didn't match their legacy in mainstream media but George is an absolute master of music. Those chord progressions! Something and Here Comes the Sun, both created by George, are the greatest songs by the Beatles. The song is mesmerising enough for my daughter to choose it as her wedding song, some 50 years (half a century! ) after it was released. "Something" is, simply put, perfect.
I hate this song. I don't hate it because it's a bad song; I hate it because I feel like it gets too much credit. It is a good song, but Maxwell's Silver Hammer was better, Oh! Darling was better, I Want You was better, the medley was better, Here Comes the Sun was so much better props to George on that one. These are just on Abby Road; if I go to the Beatles other Albums, I could go on for longer than anyone wants to read (actually, I am probably already there)
I have this record in my bedroom with the rest of my records I love the abby road album its amazing its to hard to choose favorites from it so me I love them all and I'm only 13 yrs. long live the Beatles ringo starr, george harrison, paul mccartney and john lennon are amazing I love them dearly and love the song paul mccartney and Michael jackson made together amazingly beautiful
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!
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.
Listen to ballad versions of this (such as the version in Across The Universe) to really appreciate the quality of the melody, it's a truly beautiful song and it is the song that brought America to its musical knees at the alter of the Fab Four.
It is such a disaster, yet such a pleasure to list the Beatles GOAT tunes, as it dawns on everyone that everybody has different opinions on which are the most enjoyable, cause they were so diverse and capable.
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 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.
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!
This is a brilliantly written song and captured John Lennon perfectly. It's catchy, it's heartfelt, it's a perfectly written song. Over 50 years old and it is still as catchy today as it was back then. You can't help but sing to this one.
I don't quite think my brother has a grasp on the symbolism behind this song. After listening to it, he told me the Beatles were drunks.
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!
"Sitting on a corn flake, waiting for the van to come." We've all been there, but this musical roller coaster takes us beyond our reality.
There is one partition in music, before Beatles and after, more specific Sgt. Peper album, but for me I am te Walrus was the song to brake the envelope before his time. It's a timeless work of art with ups, downs, stops, change of rhythm, different timing almost incomprehensible. This song is influential for rock master pieces like QUEEN Under Pressure.
Twist and Shout is a classic twisting and dancing song that will get you movin' and groovin'! Also I love at the end when the Beatles each sing a long note, climbing the scale. It's also sang in the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
This song is marvelous and will never ever be forgotten because of it's amazing beat. The Beatles should be incredibly proud of this masterpiece! If only there were more songs like this today
Best song ever! It should be number one! I don't think I have met anyone who can resist dancing to this song! It is my go to song in any given event, happy or sad!
In my opinion the best rock and roll song ever. John Lennon's voice and delivery is fantastic.
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.
Bloody amazing song. Honestly probably my favourite. Lennon sings so beautifully and the tune and Paul McCartney in the background. AMAZING SONG. Ill always have this song with me. Best song about love ever?. Definitely
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!
Not my favorite but should be in top 10... Honestly... Its hard not to put this on your itunes and keep listening to it. Great song!
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.
I'm a big fan of Slipknot. I like hardcore and screamo. When I first heard of the Beatles, I thought they would suck, then I heard this song. Now, I love the Beatles. Please vote for this song.
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.
Fantastic song! Ringo leads the boys in a wonderful little ditty about how we all rely on each other for support. Off their best album, deserves to be in top ten.
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.
I love this song. It has a great music video too. I love the Beatles! They're the best!
This is one of there best songs I can't believe it is this low. Go do baseball amazing son
Simple, yet amazing track. I may even like this more than Strawberry Fields Forever.
Close your eyes, listen to the song, and you are transported to a barbershop in Penny Lane on a drizzly London morning. It is the most nostalgic song about Britain that I have heard.
This should be declared Britain's national song.
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.
The Piccolo Trumpet solo is to die for. Ought to be number one really. A brilliant fusion of Baroque and rock!
This is my favorite Beatles song without a doubt, but only if it's the Let it Be version; The Let it Be... Naked version of it is a butchered farce, and the other versions are just... meh. But the one with Phil Spector's work on it is my favorite version, and it's such a beautiful work of art. (I realize I'm SERIOUSLY in the minority by saying that. ) The choir arrangements work favorably for me, the strings enhance the experience tremendously for me, and I can't believe that the Let it Be... Naked version is often considered better.
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! )
Jai guru deva means...Thank the teacher and I believe to John, the teacher was every thing in the universe and every experience he's ever had. That's part of his astonishing brilliance. He could wring the positive out of every part of hi life. He was truly enlightened as is this majestic song!
"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... "
The earliest and oldest surviving hominid is named after this song, as it was playing at the discoverer's celebration party.
The lyric just make me wonder what they must've been thinking.
I love how this song makes me feel, a sense of wonderment.
Absolutely amazing, should definitely be in the top 2 or 3! Beautiful master piece and my favorite Beatles 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!
This was the first Beatles song I ever heard in my life. I've been singing it since I was in 2nd grade. It's a very random, cool song. I can't believe it is only #27! It deserves to at least be higher than 20!
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!
In the town where I pooped, lived a weird guy, who peed his pants, and he was told, to be kicked in the nuts, every one around him, laughed out loud. BORING AND laugh out loud
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!
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.
This is one of my all-time favorite songs; it deserves to be at least in the top ten. This song is heavy and rocks completely through. I love it so much.
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.
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.
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.
This is a great song, which marks the end of the "Beatlemania era" and into the era where The Beatles focused on being songwriters, and experimented with new types of songs. This song is like part one to "A Day in the Life".
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.
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...
I don't know if this is my favorite Beatle's song ever, but its definitely the best off of the white album, I don't see how this could be this far down on the list..
The Beatles made their take on the doo-wop genre with this track.
Definitely in my top 5.
