Best Songs From the Beatles' Revolver


The Top Ten

1 Eleanor Rigby

My 11th grade English teacher, who happened to also be my mother, made us read this song and study it as a poem, and then she played it for us. She did the same for "Sounds of Silence". I've loved it since then. - Blue_Devereaux

This truly DOES deserve to be 1#. 'Eleanor Rigby'is a true masterpiece- Beautiful, yet the Beatles manage to balance just the right amount of emotion for this, not too dramatic yet not completely emotionless. I play this song over and over again and never get tired of hearing it.

As an amateur music writer, I am very fascinated by two melodies going at the same time (which I think is called counter-point). It is really fantastic at the end when "All the Lonely People, Where do they all come from" and "III Look at all the lonely people" go at the same time

Beautiful and spectacular song! So meaningful and intense.

2 Tomorrow Never Knows

Very advanced for it's time, and better than this new garbage of the 21st century. The best on Revolver and one of the best songs by the band. 1. Tomorrow Never Knows 2. And You're Bird Can Sing 3. I'm Only Sleeping 4. Here, There and Everywhere 5. Love you to

It has a very interesting vibe, along with interesting instrumentation including backwards guitar and somewhat random tape loops. Still, it is popular, and for a reason at that.

Modern than today's modern song

The number one song of Revolver.

3 Here, There and Everywhere

My favorite along with She Said She Said, but I chose this one cause its lyrics is sentimental and beautiful, and I love McCartney's voice (this song is incredibly underrated, I think because in this record McCartney's voice was doubled and so it didn't sound as good as Yesterday for example, anyway, there's a version on youtube with his "normal voice", so I prefer that! )

Beautiful delicate melody and one of Paul's best compositions.

This song is the best

I love the innocence of this song. It is so sweet and sad. It’s so hard to choose a favorite!

4 I'm Only Sleeping

This is so beautiful and idyllic! It always reminds me of blue skies and the white clouds bobbling along! I guess it tells us about the joys of dreaming... Whoch I wholeheartedly agree with. George's reversed guitar solos take it to an entirely different level, while Paul's sleepy bass playing adds to the pleasently lazy feel...

makes me feel high in a good way

Best of all possible Beatles songs. Ethereal, wispy, hard at times, and Rhythm and Bluse as HELL!

5 Taxman

A wonderful song by George typical one four five with a twist, the lyrics nail it. There is a live version where he adds verses and even mentions I believe Reagan / Bush.

Definitely in my top 3 favorite songs off of Revolver! But, of course, Revolver is just flat out one of The Beatles best albums, if not, their best - kaitlynrad11

Bitter yet comedic lyrics that fit perfectly for Harrison's voice. The distorted guitar is beautiful and the solo is great

I love the beat

6 She Said She Said

Awesome song and guitar rift. Also a great story behind it: John writes about his acid trip and how Peter Fonda kept showing them his gunshot wound, saying 'I know what it's like to be dead', to which John obviously replies 'you're making me feel like I've never been born'.

I love this song- it's a better way to hear dialogue: The arguments of a man and a woman about feeling death but it clearly has more emphasis and is more intense, unlike taking in real life

I love the tonality of this song. - Gg2000

7 Seriously? - Curtis_Huber

7 And Your Bird Can Sing

This song totally rocks. One of their best. Don't know why Lennon hated it so much? Maybe could have been longer. But for what it's worth it's an excellent song that can get you rocking out.

This is a top tune the lead is tops and it just shows the talent they all had I can not imagine the world with out the Beatles they gave so much I thank them for the joy and love they gave

One of my favorite Beatles songs

Justin Bieber is the bird!

8 For No One

It is a beautiful song that expresses the pain associated with the loss of a long time lover. Using phrases like, "She no longer needs you" and "In her eyes, you see nothing" McCartney shows the anxiety and stress a broken soul feels after a disheartening break-up.

This is one of the saddest songs they have ever made, and that is saying something considering it's the Beatles. One of the only Beatles songs to make me tear up, along with She's Leaving Home, In My Life and a few others.

The melody is beautiful, the piano playing is beautiful (piano is my favorite) and when the flute and the chorus go at the same time, I know that there is a God because how else could something so beautiful happen?

Not my favorite, but we need to get it up

9 Got to Get You Into My Life

McCartney later, during his solo years, admitted this was about pot. Even so, it sends a clear message from the singer that he wants you in his life. We are allowed to read into a song's lyrics and what I thought was the singer wanting her in his life seemed sophisticated and visceral at the same time. - mgenet

In the fade to the song McCartney sings "Look what you've done to my life." This perhaps in some way adds to it being about pot.

I'm not actually sure this is the best song on the album, but I'm positive it deserves better than spot 10.

Probably my favourite Beatles song - defmay

10 Yellow Submarine

This song made me a true Beatles fan

"Yellow Submarine" is one of my favorites. This song is intended to be the best song of their seventh studio album Revolver for it peaked in the US Billboard Hot 100 at number two.

This should at least be at 8 if not 6. It's a classic, weird, and silly song that never gets old. - Curtis_Huber

Soundtrack version is better just saying

The Contenders

11 Good Day Sunshine

The happiness is insane! I don't know what, but something just works about this song.

Good song but doesn't fit with the album. - marmalade_skies

12 I Want to Tell You

One of my favorite George Harrison songs!

I so love the title to this... - Britgirl

I confused George for John here. - marmalade_skies

13 Doctor Robert

The way john says doctor robert is so british I love it

My doctor's name is Robert. He gives me Adderall. - marmalade_skies

14 Love You To

Best song ever! Harrison killed it once again! I like the sitar and other instruments that are in this song. It has great flow and I never skip it on my iTunes playlist!

Harrison's Indian rock is just so out there, but somehow manage to feel fitting to the album. I love them all.

Adds to the psychedelic feel of the record. - marmalade_skies

How is this below Doctor Robert/Good Day Sunshine/Yellow Submarine? This song is about experience lust in the present, and the Indian influence is stunning. I’ve always considered this to be the Harrison equivalent to Here, There, and Everywhere.
My ranking:
14. Good Day Sunshine
13. Yellow Submarine
12. Doctor Robert
11. Got to Get You Into My Life
10. For No One
9. And Your Bird Can Sing
8. Eleanor Rigby
7. Taxman
6. I’m Only Sleeping
5. She Said She Said
4. Love You To
3. Tomorrow Never Knows
2. I Want to Tell You
1. Here, There, and Everywhere
