Best Songs Between The Beach Boys, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones

greatesttop10s
The best songs between the three greatest rock bands of the 1960s.

The Top Ten

1 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones

Way better than anything The Beatles or Beach Boys could ever do. Their soul, spirit and rebellious attitude makes them better than the bands below.

Totally agree with the list especially having satisfaction number 1. It's my favorite song I all time

Probably one of the best songs of all time - Ajkloth

I LOVE THIS SONG!

2 Hey Jude - The Beatles

There are long, boring, crap songs... and then there's this song... YUK!

Best selling song of the 1960's - westofohio

Boring Hippie nonsense.

3 A Day In the Life - The Beatles

Best song of all time

4 Wouldn't It Be Nice - The Beach Boys
5 Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys

This should TOTALLY be higher on the list because between the great lyrics, vocals, and very unique instrumental it makes a great song!

Thank goodness for the Wrecking Crew

6 Yesterday - The Beatles
7 Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones

Amazing song one of my favorites

8 God Only Knows - The Beach Boys UListen to Sample
9 Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones UListen to Sample
10 Surf's Up - The Beach Boys

I will never understand what people even like about the Stones. They sound really boring, are musically completely uninteresting, and I also don't hear any "soul" or anything in the music. The Beatles were way more soulful, interesting and overall original, but even they can't rival the genius behind songs like Surf's Up or Good Vibrations. - Idontreallycaretoomuch
