Top Ten Best Lines from Beatles Songs

The Top Ten
1 "Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields. Nothing is real." - Strawberry Fields Forever

Every time that I here theses particular words, they send shivers down my spine. Every time that I hear these words, I can imagine myself wandering through Strawberry Fields. Every time I hear these words...you get what I mean.

2 "I saw a film today, oh boy. The English army had just won the war." - A Day in the Life

The best quote of possibly the best song of all time. The whole entire song is fantastic, but, for some reason, this has always been my favorite line of the song.

The Beatles aren't just tune people!

3 "I get by with a little help from my friends." - With a Little Help From My Friends

One of the Beatles' best songs, in my opinion. The whole chorus is what sells the song, but the first sentence is special to me because I began to realize, without friends, life is difficult and, most of the time, pointless.

The Joe Cocker version is my all-time favourite, so even though I'm not overly keen on this version I kinda have to choose it on lyrics alone.

4 "Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers, that grow so incredibly high." - Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

John's emphasis on the word "high" always gets me. The whole song is a big, trippy masterpiece, and this sentence makes it that much better.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds has great lines

5 "I'd like to be under the sea, in an octopus's garden in the shade." - Octopus's Garden

One of the best songs off of "Abbey Road." This is also the best line of the song. For some reason, whenever I listen to this song, I envision myself eating seafood in a restaurant. Is that strange?

6 "Remember to let her into your heart. Then you can start to make it better." - Hey Jude

Arguably one of the Beatles' best, I particularly love this line because, like "With a Little Help From My Friends," it states that, to me, you should love your enemies, no matter what they might do to you. While this is hard most of the time, I always keep this line in my head.

Great lyrics to this song

7 "She (We gave her most of our lives) is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives) home (We gave her everything money could buy)." - She's Leaving Home

The voice just sounds so eerie, yet so calming while singing these lines.

The harmony on this gives me chills. Great (or should I say fab? ) list, Alpha101.

8 "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make" - The End

Quite possibly the greatest line in the history of popular music.
Legend has it that the take used on the album is the final take, from the final day the boys were ever together in the studio.
They gathered themselves up, and walked out knowing they were the greatest that had ever been, and the greatest that would ever be.

Best line in music history

9 "Will you still be sending me a valentine, birthday greetings, bottle of wine?" - When I'm Sixty-Four

One of my favorites because it's just so catchy, yet so memorable and great at the same time!

Of course we will!

10 "He say 'I know you, you know me. One thing I can tell you is you got to be free.'" - Come Together

One of the most recognizable quotes from the Beatles.

It's a cool quote

The Contenders
11 "Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be. There's a shadow hanging over me. Oh yesterday, came suddenly." - Yesterday
12 "All you need is love." - All You Need Is Love

This quote is self-explanatory.

It is a short meaningful line

Simple yet deep

13 "You'll Never Know How Much I Really Love You, You'll Never Know How Much I Really Care" - Do You Want to Know a Secret
14 "There, running my hands through her hair, both of us thinking how good it can be. Someone is speaking, but she doesn't know he's there." - Here, There and Everywhere
15 "The wild and windy night that the rain washed away has left a pool of tears crying for the day." - The Long and Winding Road
16 "How could she say to me, love will find a way." - You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
17 "And when I awoke I was alone, this bird had flown" - Norwegian Wood
18 "Something in the way, she moves. Attracts me like no other lover" - Something
19 "I look at you all, see the love there that's sleeping while my guitar gently weeps" - While My Guitar Gently Weeps
20 "A love like ours, could never die." - And I Love Her

Love the warmth of this line

21 “He roller coaster” - Come Together
22 “But of All These Friends and Lovers, There is No One Compares with You” - In My Life
23 "Speaking Words of Wisdom, Let It Be" - Let It Be
