Favourite Beatles songs, anyone?

Might as well, in no order...

Helter Skelter
Strawberry Fields Forever
Here Comes The Sun
I Feel Fine
Across The Universe
Paperback Writer
I Saw Her Standing There
Eleanor Rigby
Come Together
Back In The USSR
Help!
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
Maxwell's Silver Hammer
The Long And Winding Road

I'm sure there are a couple more. I'm what you might call a 'casual' Beatles fan, but those are my favourites.

Good Lord...there are way too many. I pretty much like all of their songs, with very few exceptions. But I'll just mention the ones that immediately come to mind:

In My Life (if I had to pick a favorite, this would be it )
Something
I've Just Seen a Face
Here, There and Everywhere
If I Fell
Ballad of John and Yoko
Hey Jude
Saw Her Standing There
For No One
Don't Let Me Down
Norwegian Wood
You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
Here Comes the Sun
Eight Days a Week
When I'm 64
Revolution
A Day in the Life
She's Leaving Home
Blackbird
Yer Blues

Scary that that's the narrowed down version of my list. As if you couldn't tell, I'm a complete Beatles fanatic. They were my first musical obsession and only U2 equals them in the pantheon of my musical loves.

edited cause I'm a freak and I had to add one more.

She Came in Through the Bathroom Window
Golden Slumbers
Carry That Weight
End

This run at the end of Abbey Rd is PERFECT!

Dear Prudence
And Your Bird Can Sing
She Said
Ballad of John and Yoko
Help!
I'm So Tired
Cry Baby Cry
Don't Let Me Down

You really could go on forever listing these things. The Beatles truely are untouchable.

i'd say a good half of their songs have been my #1 favourite song at some point

here are my top favourites as of now:

rain
here comes the sun
she said she said
we can work it out
fixing a hole
paperback writer
honey pie
savoy truffle
mother nature's son
there's a place
love me do
please plase me
p.s. i love you
misery
i'll cry instead
can't buy my love
things we said today
got to get you into my life
you can't do that
i'll follow the sun
what you're doing
help
the night before
you've got to hide your love away
think for yourself
you won't see me
nowhere man
strawberry fields forever
penny lane
good day sunshine
and your bird can sing
carry that weight
golden slumbers
while my guitar gently weeps
hey jude
norwiegan wood
i'm looking through you
flying
i need you
taxman



and probably a ton of others that as soon as i take more time to think about i'll not be able to believe that i forgot them. that list is what comes to mind off the top of my head and from reading what other people put. it's just like trying to pick a favourite u2 song. i can't do it...

*responds to thread every two minutes*

God, it's really amazing the number of songs that I adore that I totally forgot about. I once listened to I'll Follow the Sun on repeat for like a half hour. And that song's less than two minutes long, so that's a damn lot of times, my friends. And Nowhere Man. How could I freaking forget Nowhere Man??

I suppose this is not a good time to say I only own '1'.

We all have to start somewhere I suppose. I've downloaded a couple of tunes which I haven't heard before from this thread, and I really like what I've heard so far. Once this whole SARS quarantine blows over I'm going to buy myself a Beatles album.

Anyway, to my (very short) list, add

Day Tripper
Nowhere Man
Penny Lane
The Ballad Of John And Yoko
You've Got To Hide Your Love Away
Ticket To Ride
A Hard Day's Night
A Day In The Life

"all my loving"

everynight when i put my daughter to bed she begs me, "mommy...sing it! sing it!" and i do..."close your eyes and i'll kiss you, tomorrow i'll miss you..." and all the rest of it...so this song is the one i will always hold closest to my heart. it is a little gift i can give to my daughter, the gift of a great song.
