Best Beatles Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Within You Without You

Too sad that this masterpiece stands at 100. Its not one of the best, but THE BEST song of George Harrison and of course of The Beatles. Just listen to beautiful lyrics and the rendition of the Indian music with tabla uniquely combined with the magical Sitar. A classic masterpiece!

Listen to this on acid lol

Nowhere near the best, but I like it a lot

My favorite Song of all Time! So beatiful! Especialy the vocals- better than any vocals that John and Paul ever did! Hope it'll be higher

82 You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)

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 catchy

Most underrated song ever.

83 You're Going to Lose that Girl

This is absolutely, without a doubt, one of the most underrated Beatles song EVER! It's catchy, fun, addictive, etc. This I just an amazing song. Why is it so low? Come on, it deserves a place in the top 20 at least... - xTheMysteriousGoatx

My favourite Beatles song! - Monners55

One of the best. George harrison sounds a bit off, though.

Should be no. 1. Just listen to it! The perfect song!

84 Blue Jay Way

Amazing atmospheric track.

Please don't be long... Please don't be long... Please don't be long... Please don't be long...Please don't be long...Please don't be long...

85 From Me to You

This is the very best Beatles song! I love it.

I love this song but 123

Perhaps the best song of the young Beatles

One of the most favorite song

86 Please Please Me

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.

How is this so low? Oh my gosh! - olliv

88 I'm Happy Just to Dance with You

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.

It is so good and awesome

This is my favorite Beatles song. I listen to it on repeat all the time.

89 Free as a Bird

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 - BeeBlue

90 She's a Woman

I'm the one who put this song on here. I have no clue how this isn't even on the list! It should be at least in the top 100! How is Revolution 9 on this list and She's a woman isn't?! This song should be known more!

Needs to be above Revolution 9 and Wild Honey Pie

Put it higher on this list

Absolutely one of their very best!

91 Good Day Sunshine

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.

92 Think for Yourself
93 Things We Said Today

Wow! Biggest disappointment. Why so high? I think it's the best Beatles song ever written.

94 Old Brown Shoe

No this can't be at 135. Deserves top 20 at least

95 Rocky Raccoon

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

96 Your Mother Should Know

You're kidding, right? Number 118? This is one of my favorite Beatles songs! It has great lyrics, melody, and is really catchy. This should really AT LEAST be in the top 50's! - kaitlynrad11

One of their biggest Underrated songs.

Completely underrated in this list!

I agree with the other comments

97 P.S. I Love You

In a long distance relationship and I listen to it everyday.

98 She's Leaving Home

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.

99 Sexy Sadie

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

100 It's All Too Much

"It's All Too Much" is a beautiful song which tragically isn't as appreciated. Its horns, its thrashing guitars, it's messy, but that gives off a raw, emotional feel to the whole thing. I especially love the ending, where the song falls apart, to where it feels like it's breaking down, like it truly is too much.

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.
