Top 10 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 I hear these particular words, they send shivers down my spine. Every time 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 from possibly the best song of all time. The entire song is fantastic, but for some reason, this has always been my favorite line of the song.

The Beatles aren't just about tunes!

3 "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 even better.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds has great lines.

4 "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 sells the song, but the first sentence is special to me because I began to realize that, without friends, life is difficult and, most of the time, pointless.

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

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 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.

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 one, from the last day the boys were ever together in the studio. They gathered themselves up and walked out, knowing they were the greatest there had ever been, and the greatest there would ever be.

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 both catchy and memorable, and great at the same time.

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.
