Favourite 5 Beatles songs.

Recommended Posts

Saw Her Standing There - Please Please Me

Octopus's Garden - Abbey Road

Rocky Raccoon - White Album

Can't Do That - Hard Day's Night

For You Blue - Let It Be

What's everyone else's picks? Anyone who says they "hate" The Beatles is a liar.

Fuck, forgot about Day in the Life. Special mention goes to Mean Mr Mustard/Polythene Pam/She Came in Through the Bathroom Window combo aswell.

I love how at the height of The Beatles success they were popular with everyone across all ages and interests. I don't believe another band will ever achieve that.

You're right with that. I can't see anyone else achieving that these days either. While i dislike them they obviously were an important point in music and i don;t think that many bands will match their longevity either as their music is fairly timeless.

It's a tough 'un that changes on a daily basis but the 2nd half of Abbey Road as a whole is the greatest piece of music ever recorded. As for individual songs...today I choose:

1. Here, There And Everywhere

2. Mother Natures Son

3. Michelle

4. Run For Your Life

5. For No One

Changes all the time. Only five? But you stick on an album you haven't heard for ages and think "My god, this song is brilliant and it's only an album track that never gets played on the radio".

But I think my definite all time favourite would be:

Golden Slumbers/The End

Then it could all change, but at the moment I'll go for:

And Your Bird Can Sing

I Will

I'm Looking Through You

If I Needed Someone
