(And I'm one of the many who think that Beatles For Sale is their least favourite of the early albums. Despite Eight Days A Week being my favourite Beatles song.)

Maybe AHDN, definitely not With the Beatles.

Help!
The Night Before
You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
Ticket to Ride
I've Just Seen a Face
Yesterday

All fantastic, essential tracks.

A Hard Day's Night or Help! for sure to start, the former being my recommendation.

if you don't immediately love If I Fell then there is something wrong with you cobbler.

I've recently rediscovered how wonderful Things We Said Today is. That's a perfect song.

I'd add You're Gonna Lose That Girl and It's Only Love to that list, but yes, agreed, great record.

the chord progression in the chorus is incredible (the chorus of how much a dollar cost reminds me of it a lot). as is paul's vocal delivery.

also a big fan of the nearly-atonal guitar riff in you can't do that.

Yeah, that one is probably my favorite on there.


All this talk is making me nostalgic for our "Beatoffs" period and such gems as "I Just Sprayed A Face" and "Crabby Load".

Good times.

Help is top tier Beatles. (Except for Dizzy Miss Lizzie, which is on my list of Worst Beatles Songs Ever.)

It's not a great song but I find this one pretty fun, if only because of John's wild vocal, which almost replicates the awesomeness of Twist and Shout.

I think it suffers a bit from having to follow Yesterday; it feels tacked on.

The guitar hook is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

Rubber Soul is so great. They aren't yet experimenting with sound and concept(and acid, let's be honest) in the way they would starting with Revolver, but it was a giant leap in songwriting from Help, which itself was a great record. In particular the record was a leap for Harrison I think, with Think For Yourself and If I Needed Someone. There isn't a track there that can't get stuck in your head, imo. This is some of the most purely infectious pop music they ever recorded. Even better when you add Day Tripper and We Can Work It Out back in(they work well opening each side). The kind of record that just makes you feel good.

1. Day Tripper
2. Drive My Car
3. Norwegian Wood
4. You Won't See Me
5. Nowhere Man
6. Think For Yourself
7. The Word
8. Michelle

9. We Can Work It Out
10. What Goes On
11. Girl
12. I'm Looking Through You
13. In My Life
14. Wait
15. If I Needed Someone
16. Run For Your Life

I wonder if my opinions today would match my opinions from a few years back when it comes to customization playlists of albums. I somewhat remember having interesting White Album, Sgt. Pepper's/Magical Mystery Tour hybrid thing, and Let It Be playlists. But all my playlists went away when I changed computers.

I seem to remember laz pointing out that some of the Sgt. Pepper's and Magical Mystery Tour stuff came from different sessions (which I didn't really care about then and now having done a bunch of recording sessions, don't really care about now either) and that Revolution 9 should be on any White Album compilation (but it will always be cut, for me, in any customized White Album playlists - just as quickly as Wild Honey Pie [I find both to be in my bottom 5 or so by The Beatles, though I'm not comparing them]). And I think people really don't like Savoy Truffle (but I still love it and how it has a totally sinister musical undercurrent that changes the song around for me).

Without listening to transitions, I'd do something like this on paper:

1. Back In The USSR
2. Dear Prudence
3. Glass Onion
4. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
5. Happiness Is A Warm Gun
6. Blackbird
7. Martha My Dear
8. Piggies
9. Rocky Raccoon
10. Mother Nature's Son
11. Julia

1. Birthday
2. Everybody's Got Something To Hide
3. Sexy Sadie
4. Helter Skelter
5. Long Long Long
6. I'm So Tired
7. Revolution
8. Savoy Truffle
9. Cry Baby Cry
10. Hey Jude
11. Good Night

8 Paul songs, 9 John songs, 4 George songs, 1 Ringo song.

savoy truffle is fantastic. i love the distorted horn section. i read that the horns were from some symphony orchestra or something and were already not too happy about appearing on a rock record (although still willing to take the paycheque). they finished recording, and it was played back for them with the crazy distortion, and they were mortified to the point that george apologized as the horns immediately departed.
