As you know from time to time I like to make lists. Today is a slow day so we might as well go ahead and make another list. Today we focus on one band. The Beatles have many great songs but what are their greatest? I answer that question today with the top ten greatest Beatles songs of all time. These are by far the ten greatest Beatles songs so really there’s no need to argue.
10. Here Comes The Sun – Off of Abby Road this one is sure to put a smile on your face. Don’t worry buddy everything’s going to be OK.
9. Strawberry Fields Forever – Another song that just seems to put the soul at ease.
8. Something – An all time great love song but that’s a list for a different day. If I’m correct this song “Layla” and “Wonderful Tonight” were all about Patty Boyd. Man she must have been hot. SIDE NOTE: After watching this video Yoko sure is ugly. WTF John?!
7. Helter Skelter – I love rocking out to this one. Although for some reason whenever I hear it I want to commit a gruesom murder. Whenever old people, and by old people I don’t mean you guys you’re cool, try to tell me that today’s music is devil’s music or has some kind of bad influence I remind them that the Beatles influenced one of the worst killers in the history of the United States. That usually shuts them up.
6. We Can Work It Out – Can’t we all just get along?
5. Come Together – Seriously I mean it can’t we all just get along?
4. While My Guitar Gently Weeps – One of the most under rated Beatles songs. This is a Beatles epic. It lasts almost five minutes and for the Beatles that’s a long time.
3. Yesterday – The first couple of songs on this list put you at ease. This one is more of a shoulder to cry on.
2. Let It Be - I flipped a coin and this song lost to the number one song. Both could be number one.
1. Hey Jude – This was originally for Paul’s kid and was called Hey Jules. Hey Jules jus doesn’t have the same ring to it good change. Now join with me na na na nanana na nanana HEY JUDE!
Certainly there are songs that should be in the honorable mention category. Black Bird, Norwegian Wood, Twist and Shout. What are some others.
