"Hard Day's Night" as #1? Not what I'd pick either.

My tastes are very similar to yours--when I asked myself what I'd pick as my favorite Beatles song, "A Day in the Life" was the first thing that came to mind. "Something" is the other serious contender. Like you, I'm also partial to McCartney and to the later Beatles albums, and I really like Harrison's work. I find it interesting that I love what Paul and George did as solo artists, but don't care a bit for John's solo work.

You know, there's not much here to quibble about. Personal preference, very personal, puts "You Never Give Me Your Money" high on the list, followed immedately by Golden Slumbers/et al medely. Just the "can't turn back now" bitter-sweetness and nothing beats that line from the mind of this Mormon apostate: "One sweet dream. Pick up the bags, get in the limosine. Soon we'll be away from here. Step on the gas and wipe that tear away."

Thanks, Equality.

Looks good to me. I am glad to see that Ob-la-Di is fairly far down the list, or I may not have continued to read your blog!

Ben

Well, pretty good list... I personally couldn't have a list without "Two Of Us" and "Don't Let Me Down" but to each their own. That's credence to the Beatles, the list just goes on and on and on.. :)

Equality

I imagine if I were to make the list again without consulting this one, probably ten of the songs would be different. I look at the list and see some glaring omissions that I might include if I were to do it again. But then I think, what would I cut?

John Malloy

Hey Jude is terrible

Equality

"Hey Jude is terrible"

Yes, in the same way that the Mona Lisa, Casablanca, and To Kill a Mockingbird are terrible.

Jennifer

Less than 2 weeks until we can play Beatles Rock Band til our fingers bleed! WOOHOO!

weston

Something should have made the top ten.

jordy

Let it be should have made top five!

mike

What about Here, There and Everywhere?, and I Should Have Known Better?, Happiness is a Warm Gun?, Dr. Robert?, Tomorrow Never Knows?-.

Jake

Don't Let me down should be ranked. great song but every song by the Beatles is good so hard to choose. Yer Blues, Glass onion, Come together, You never give your money. just to name a few more.

Joe

this is complete shit. three quarters of this is paul mccartney, where are all the John songs?

Magic Kenny

I wouldn't go so far as to say "complete shit," but I strongly agree with the post lamenting the lack of JL songs. Seriously - where's "Julia," "In My Life," "Dear Prudence," "Tomorrow Never Knows," etc.? Putting "When I'm Sixty-Four" above any of those shows an alarming lack of knowledge when it comes to the Beatles. You labeled this list the "Beatles Top 50 Songs," not "My Favorite 50 Beatles Songs." Using that criteria, you're not in the ballpark.

Equality

"You labeled this list the 'Beatles Top 50 Songs,' not 'My Favorite 50 Beatles Songs.'"

I thought I made it clear that this was MY list of Top 50 Beatles Songs as opposed to the Top 50 list that Entertainment Weekly published. Are you suggesting, Magic Kenny, that there is an objective list of the Top 50 Beatles songs available somewhere that does not implicate the subjective tastes of those who compiled the list? If you think "Julia" belongs among the Top 50 and you despise When I'm Sixty-Four, good for you. Make your own damn list.

I'm fascinated by music lists, as evidenced by my website (http://www.davesmusicdatabase.com) and Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/davesmusicdatabase). Sorry about the shameful advertisting, but I mention my pages as a courtesy to those who've posted comments in regards to the lists I post. I am constantly impressed with the maturity (for the most part) of people's responses to my posts. They may have differing opinions, but are able to recognize that theirs are personal opinions which are no better or worse than anyone elses. Kudos to those here who have posted their comments in that kind of spirit.

Also - Rolling Stone magazine is releasing a special issue Aug. 27 devoted to the top 100 Beatles songs. See you at the newstand!

Johnny

rose
