A Day in the Life
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.
Just amazing, I've never heard as thrilling song as A day in the life. It's absolutely one of the best songs in history. Yeah, Hey Jude and Let it be are really awesome too and I love them so much but A day... is very mature, modern even today, quaint with fantastic music. In this song every second is important and that's why I love A day in the life.
Sorry by mistakes, regards from Poland.
TIMELESS TRACK: this is honestly a magical song, no matter how many times I hear it I always feel as though I'm being transported into this wonderful place... Only the Beatles have been able to create this feeling for me. If anyone ever says that the Beatles are overrated you should tell them to listen to "A Day in the Life" and I promise you that they won't have a leg to stand on
Wow, Psychedelic, Art and Progressive rock, all at the same song, I'm just a progressive rock fan maybe that's the reason I like this song, but beside this fact, just wow, their best song, on one their best albums. - Mcflupy
This is a song with so much emotion; It made me cry, it made me smile, it made me feel giddy inside. The Beatles have been the best influential band of all time. They made history in Music, and this song definitely counts as an attribute to that fame. John Lennon used his "Power Voice" in this song, giving it that extra oomph that every song deserves, but doesn't always achieves.
This is such an inspirational end to an inspirational album. There will never be anything like it, to be honest, it would be pretty difficult for any orchestra to create the beautiful chaotic shriek of psychedelia which sets the atmosphere for a disturbing continuation of the conspiracy in which Paul McCartney is dead. Genius.
Absolutely the greatest Beatles song of all time. Is there a song that is even remotely close to being like A day in the life? No. Unbelievably original and positively brilliant. From Paul's beautiful opening line to the different verses of the song to the genius piano chord ending, this is the Beatles' true masterpiece.
There will never, EVER be a song anything like this. It's truly a musical masterpiece that deserves recognition for its brilliance. John Lennon's voice in this remind me of a surreal dream, while Paul McCartney's middle eight bit adds a pleasant and upbeat tune that gets me feeling energetic, much like a morning coffee.
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!
The very best of The Beatles, this is the peak of the Lennon/McCartney songwriting team, good intro, sweet vocals from john, excellent crescendos, great middle by paul, and the best part is the final E chord in the piano, who shows us that rock's possibilities seem infinite
I'm completely fine with Hey Jude and Let it Be being higher than this although I would say this is the best Beatles song of all time. It was so far ahead of it's time that it's unbelievable. This was the last true collaboration between John and Paul (in a writing aspect).
I listen to many songs by The Beatles but this song is so great at meaningful storytelling. It is very powerful and the transition between a melancholy John Lennon into a more upbeat Paul McCartney is incredible.
This song is hands down of the greatest songs in music history. With an amazing atmosphere and stunning vocal work by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, this song is just simply...awesome. - Draco
A Day in the Life is the song that best shows The Beatles' evolution from a poppy boy-band to mature rock legends.
Hey Jude, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Let it Be, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields Forever and more are all great songs, but nothing really close to A Day in the Life
Beautiful, simply beautiful... Poetic, breathtaking... Lennon's vocals combined with the melody, and then McCartney's when he comes in show how beautiful a partnership it was... Probably the greatest song of the greatest band of all times
This song is absolutely amazing! I totally love it. The meaning of the song is abstract and different. Paul and John's voices both make this song the amazing piece of artwork it is! The instruments and music played are also brilliant!
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.
One of the most influential songs to other bands by the Beatles. The directions that this song goes through is astonishing, and the orchestral parts are gargantuan. This is not my favorite song, this is their best song.
This is the best of the Beatles, and of the Lennon-McCartney duo as a songwriters, and in the song I love the switch from paul to john, this song tells what happens in our lives, even that I'm not from the UK
This is absolutely the best song ever written. John and Paul put their 2 songs together to create a masterpiece and it remains to this day, not only my favorite Beatles song but my favorite song ever.
The segue from Paul's middle bit to the main theme -- John's wailing followed by the orchestral DUH, DEE, DUM, DEE, DUM -- has to be the most spine tingling interlude in modern music.
Greatest song ever written by the Beatles, if not the greatest song ever written. It's just so complex. And that chord is phenomenal!
This song is the best.. the songs in a wide range of musical instruments used and the song is sung by all members of the Beatles John Lennon until the start of Ringo... I Like It so Much!
This song is not like any other song in history. It's not just detailing a normal day but also interpreting what is going on in the rest of the world while we are living another day.
Best song ever.. You just have to sit down and cry.. Thinking about how this world can be magic when two genius create a song so charming and moving. Voice, melody, armony, sound, rhythm, fantasy, irony, eclecticism, innovation, style... This song has everything
