Best Beatles Songs
The Contenders: Page 5
This is 62nd? Unbelievable. This is a great song, and if it's sixty second, I can only imagine how great the songs that have been voted ahead must be. I love this song. Jo
Baby you're a rich man is a cool and funky song. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the album Magical Mystery Tour.

This song deserves the place in top 10V 1 Comment
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.
Lennon doing Dylan. Brilliant.V 8 Comments
This song is another one of those that displays the sheer mastery of the Beatles at their craft. The Anthology version is my favourite. It has so much sampling and tempo shifting and it transports you instantly to a smoky late night jazz bar. Listen to this song and admire the masters at their work. - gotlbh
Not really a great song but if I'm in the mood I find it very catchyV 1 Comment
This is the very best Beatles song! I love it.
Perhaps the best song of the young Beatles
Why only 124? This should be much higher! - AjklothV 2 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
The one song of theirs where I can't (no matter what) listen to it only once. The harmonies are phenomenal. "*****"! - BKAllmighty
Seriously... Their first #1 Single is at 70?!?! This song deserves to be much higher on the list. It has great harmonies and Paul does a great job of singing such a simple song! GO Beatles!
I voted for this although in my list it wouldn't be my first choice (It's much better than any songs from other bands but since The Beatles has so many great songs, this wouldn't even fit to the top 20 in my opinion) but since it's ranked so low, It hink this song really needs votes.
Extremely underrated song, even though it's remembered by having the same name as the very first Beatles album.V 4 Comments
This song is awesome! This should be in the top 10V 1 Comment
The Beatles wrote this song after their brake up and recorded it after John died.
Jesus! This should be better than the top 20 more than the 100's.
I remember this being the very first Beatle song I heard. Dem memories :D - BeeBlueV 1 Comment
I think this song is very underrated. There are songs by the Beatles that I like better then this one, but this one is catchy and has a nice rhythm to it. Give it a listen and you'll see what I mean.
Some great instruments in the background give this song a really wonderful, positive sound. Great vocals and lyrics elevate it into a masterpiece.
The FIRST Beatles' song I ever heard: driving on the Siobhan in Germany. Changed my life.V 2 Comments
One of their most underrated songs from an underrated album. Seriously, in my opinion A Hard Day's Night rivals their experimental stuff, don't care what people say.
My favorite Beatles song of all times. George's kills it, his singing is on top.
This is my favorite Beatles song. I listen to it on repeat all the time.V 2 Comments
Wow! Biggest disappointment. Why so high? I think it's the best Beatles song ever written.
I loved this song as a kid, listening to my dad's Beatles CDs and I still listen to it frequently today; it never gets old. -
This is an interesting song. It's different and cool. Written by Paul McCartney in the album The Beatles.
I had a tough decision over rocky racoon and USSR because I really like RR the best but I know most people would probably like USSR better. RR brings out the cowboy in all of us and tells a great story about a man who loses his lady to another guy and Rocky tries too get her back in a showdown. This is a catchy song and fun to sing.
Great song. So childish in a very creative and influential way. - samroach
I can't see this is at 87, a masterpiece by lennon. Should be on much higher number.It should be somewhere at 40
Definitely the best song on the White Album along with Helter Skelter in my opinion. The piano line is amazing. More people need to hear this song.
Probably top 20 song, I can't understand why is here
words and music together convey one of the saddest songs in the beatles archive. Nice use of a harp and strings. Another example of the creativity and varied sound that the beatles were masters at. - gotlbh
Yes... The lyrics are very good, beautiful and evoking of powerful sadness. It is one of the best story-telling songs the Fab Four have ever written. Can't believe it's only at #99. A fantastic song from the best band ever in all of history. 0% votes? Come on! Please patch this up immediately.
The words really do have a poignant meaning. It seemed to happen a lot back in the day
A masterpiece.V 7 Comments
I don't know what it is about this song, but I could listen to it forever! I don't think I could say that about most other Beatles songs, but this one just never gets old!
Like a chant that expands into forever.V 1 Comment
Love this song with all my heart! Ringo's vocals on it are amazing, and its definitely the best song on Please Please Me - kaitlynrad11
Its guitar solo on the bridge played by George Harrison was super duper fantastic!
