Best Beatles Songs

The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

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.

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

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

62 Because

The most beautiful song in the world. So few words, which fit the song better than in any other song. I REALLY don't understand, why it isn't ranked higher. The lyrics tell everything: "Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry". "Love is all, love is you".

This one is awesome. It's kind of melancholic but really heart warming.


A masterpiece. Just wonderful. Sit back, play it loud, and enjoy it. My favorite Beatle's song.

63 The Fool on the Hill

Great song, heavily underrated in my opinion, the best song of the great quartet

Beautiful so lost & underrated give me this song any time over long and winding road. ANYTIME!

64 Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Makes me really happy inside. This should be in the top 12 at least! Why is it down here? Come on people, vote vote vote!

By far the best Beatles song I thought this would for sure be in the top 3 - kity21

I LOVE THIS SONG FROM THE Beatles. The up-tempo tune is so catchy, I remember singing along to this when I was a kid. Like a kid can appreciate this song, surely adults can do better! This deserves to be in the top 20 at least!

Awesome song

65 Maxwell's Silver Hammer

Stunning song had an amazing storyline and is underrated. When I herd this song for the first time I was shocked that I hadn't seen it on a top Beatles' songs site!

This song is really interesting and funny. I recommend screaming if you see Max in a dark alley one night

It's a very funny song and plus my name is max

66 Drive My Car

One of the best Paul vocals, one of the best vocal harmonies, one of the best guitar/bass riffs, one of the best sounding drum audios ever put on THE best bands albums, AND ITS IN THE 80'S?!?! This is my favorite Beatles songs!

I agree with myself every time I say that this is the best Beatles song that I've ever heard in my entire life! I I'm going to keep saying it forever!

I visit this website almost every week and I so it just so I can vote for Drive my Car! It's one of my favorite songss and ill vote for it forever

And your bird and this are the best on the album.

67 And Your Bird Can Sing

I agree. This is One of the most underrated Beatles in my opinion. My Favorites include:
Revolution and In My Life are probably my personal two Favorite's but
And you Bird Can Sing is definitely in my personal Top 10, maybe top 5.
In My Life - This song usually makes me emotional and think about people no longer in my life.
Hey Jude
Dear Prudence.
A Day in the Life
Here Comes the Sun. This song makes me Happy and my Children know it from Bee Movie.
I never used to think of the Abby Road Medley as "a song" but if you count it, that has to be up there too.
They're the Beatles. How many bands can you name a 100 songs and still miss some of people's favorites? I've named 9 and didn't even include a bunch of their Love Songs like I love her, She loves you, I want to hold your hand. It's tough to do a personal top 10.

Probably the most underrated Beatles song ever. I love the lyrics and the fairly simple melody, and it has some great guitar in it as well! One of my Revolver favorites!

2 minutes of absolute awesomeness. One of my favorites from Revolver.

Great song and drive my car, too

68 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.

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.

Amazing song. Always makes me smile and probably the Beatles song that means most to me personally.

69 Do You Want to Know a Secret

Captures perfectly the early beatles vocal sound and arranging. Full of life...short and sweet but rings in your head for the rest of the day.

70 Long, Long, Long

this is a curious song, with quite a different sound to may of the other beatles tracks. Its another harrison gem from the white album, and it is quite beautiful. In this and the other songs of harrison from 67 to 69 you really hear how he is reflecting on events. It may not be top ten, but it deserves to be heard. Drums are superb. - gotlbh

Everything about this song is raw. The lyrics, the voice, the instruments. It's very beautiful.

71 Love Me Do

It is supposed to be higher in the list because it's nice and catchy

What this is no a good list of songs, this will be the best song of the Beatles

Why is this 72? It must be 1

One of best song com on

72 Real Love

The fact that McCartney, Harrison and Starr coupled together a song which in its original tape had a lot of static, and low quality of vocals and made it into a Beatles classic is testament to the tenacity of the Beatles as a unit... I never meant this song to be number one... By this has to be ranked higher. The fact that Lennon's voice was very thin in this record.. McCartney ghost voiced him and made it a little clearer... They cleaned up loads of noise... All of this points to the fact that a band like the Beatles is up till now.. Unparalleled.

The last great Beatles record. Brought Lennon back to life for 3:52. Proved The Beatles lost nothing to time or trends and did it with a dead man singing lead.

This song doesn't belong and is nowhere near a classic. I would term it more of a novelty song. Paul, George, and Ringo took a throw away Lennon track and tried to make something of it. John had good reason to leave this weak effort in the vault.

I also think this must be far higher than just 61st, top 20 may be..

73 Golden Slumbers

I couldn't choose between this and the long and winding road. Every song Paul puts out is a jem.

Golden Slumbers sweetly opens up the second half of the Abbey Road medley. This song, combined with "Carry That Weight" and " The End, " is a masterpiece.

69!? This song is their best. Should be #1.

My favorite Beatles song

74 Magical Mystery Tour

I believe this song should be #1. Its tune is good, and the lyrics are almost majestic. I can't believe it's this far down on the list.

Almost the last true collaboration

75 Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite!

Very original masterpiece with awesome production. The song is overall very unpredictable with a few bar changes. You can listen to this song over and over again and you will never stop hearing new details and instruments in the sound picture.

The melody, played on one to me unknown instrument, in the middle of the song is incredibly beautiful and still makes me cry.

The end of the song has one of the most impressive organ arrangements ever conceived.
In short: this is some very impressive piece of music.

One more time... Who does this? All John - John09

76 You've Got to Hide Your Love Away

Is a song way ahead of his time. Timeless. Lyrics that seem simple but they head straight to the bones, that's what has always characterized the genius of Lennon. It should be on the top ten, with Something and Don't let me down.

I dunno why but this song tears my heart out. It should be among the top twenty at least! It's got awesome lyrics, and I totally relate to it.

I've heard all the supposed best Beatles song but this one was the best one period, even better than Hey Jude, I prefer Mcartney overall but this lennon song is definitely the best I have heard.

I was eight years old when the Beatles came to Melbourne Australia. My family did not even own a record player but I was well aware of who the Beatles were and how their songs sent a tingle down my spine. Then, a year later the movie Help arrived on our screens. It was filled with the tom-foolery the Beatles were known for, and the songs were atypical of what we expected from the greatest band in the world, but one song stood out from the rest, and it was, You've Got to Hide Your Love Away. Another Lennon Masterpiece among Beatles masterpieces given to world. I was, and am in awe.

77 Lady Madonna

Paul's voice in this... I love it when he brings this voice out. Like on the fast part of "You Never Give Me Your Money", which should also be in the top ten. I love this song! Should be in the top ten!

78 Got to Get You Into My Life

I love everything about this song: words, melody, rhythm, horns, the way it builds to the guitar break, it's a perfect pop song. That guitar hook & sound gets me every time & with Paul belting the chorus - I'm always left wanting more.

The trumpet in this song is infectious and Paul's voice is simply amazing

Paul's voice here is very nice and a great song

I love the flow, the horns, and Paul's voice! One of my favorites.

79 I've Got a Feeling

The big reason I like this song is because John and Paul each have their own singing solos and then they sing them at the same time. George does a nice job on the guitar and I like how Paul sings in this song.

Their most underrated song. Everyone mentions Let it Be with talking about the title song, Across the Universe, Get Back etc. But none of them mention this song. Truly overlooked.

This song can't be 68th, it just can't.

Makes let it be their best album

80 Girl

This song is AMAZING! How is it possible it's rated so poorly? It gives me goosebumps... It's unreal!

Perfect The Beatles song. That's it. Salute to this amazing, dreamy, beautiful song!

It's my favorite song of this band, I don't know why it isn't be in the first 10 but anyway. I Love this song Its really great...

Best by the beatles
