Top 10 Beatles Songs

Classic Album Review posted the video The Beatles: Ten Greatest Songs. His top ten:

  1. Strawberry Fields Forever
  2. A Day in the Life
  3. Eleanor Rigby
  4. Penny Lane
  5. Let it Be
  6. Hey Jude
  7. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
  8. Ticket to Ride
  9. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
  10. We Can Work it Out

This is far from my own Beatles top ten. As a child, I listened to the three albums in my father’s collection, Beatlemania, Beatles 65, and Help, but really fell in love with the White Album, Sergeant Pepper, Yellow Submarine, Magical Mystery Tour, and Wings Over America. My top ten:

  1. Across the Universe
  2. Something
  3. Here Comes the Sun
  4. Yesterday
  5. Let it Be
  6. Golden Slumbers Medley
  7. All You Need is Love
  8. Helter Skelter
  9. Come Together
  10. Happiness is a Warm Gun

Here are my honourable mentions:

  1. Blackbird
  2. I’ve Just Seen a Face
  3. The Long and Winding Road
  4. Penny Lane
  5. With a Little Help From My Friends
  6. Fixing a Hole

Only one of my top ten, Let it Be, overlaps with Classic Album Review. While I like a lot of his picks, Ticket to Ride and We Can Work it Out are duds, in my opinion. There’s very little I really like from the earlier Beatlemania era Beatles.
