May I suggest:

all of them.

No, really. You can't go wrong with any of them. Sgt. Pepper is always a good place to start. But, personally, my favorites are Rubber Soul and Abbey Road, so you should definitely get those first.

Hello,

As many said, there are so many great Beatles songs it's hard to make even a small list. So I won't Instead, I mention the song that's most in my head and probably my current favourite.

Eight Days A Week

In a way, they couldn't beat the early singles in catchyness (even though they got more interesting musically later on).

Oh, and the small skit on the Live At The BBC collection before Roll Over Beethover (called Just A Rumour). George is great with his deadpan humour!

C ya!

Marty

it's appropriate that this topic appears today

My mum just rang with good news... my big sister is flying home from Western Australia next month. She has lived over there for about 30 years and I only see her about once every 5 years, so it's a very special time.
The Beatles toured Australia in 1964, I was 3, she was 13. The excitement it caused is etched in my memory. Our bedroom was festooned with Beatles memorabilia, she bought the singles as they came out and played them on her dinky little portable record player......magic stuff.
So songs like She Loves Me, Mr Postman, Hard Days Night, 8 Days A Week, take me back to a warm fuzzy place.

Their slower songs, hey Jude, Yesterday, Something, are just beautiful.
Songs like Octopus' Garden and Yellow Submarine, take me back to singing time at Primary school.

I LOVE Emmylou Harris' version of "Here There and Everywhere".


Did I read on the front page that it is Elvis' birthday today? THE Elvis? Our Elvis? JT? anyone started a thread yet? I seem to recall he digs the Beatles.

Strange choice of a favourite song I must say. 'You don't count'...code for Taxman maybe? 'Good'...Good Day Sunshine?
