I'm with you, I've never been mad about it.

There's a lot of similarly highly-rated Beatles tracks that I feel the same way about.

You mean Radiohead, right?

Musically, it's stellar. That's why it's a great song.

Plus, I dig this verse:

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye. (too soon)
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess,
Boy, you been a naughty girl you let your Knickers down.

Most overrated Beatles track: Hello, Goodbye.

I don't see why it's so amazing to some people. It's pretty grating.

I've never heard Hello, Goodbye be considered as overrated. It's a catchy pop song, but I don't know many people who consider it their best to begin with.

I've heard people say it's one of their best pop songs, and I disagree. It shouldn't be rated well at all.

Penny Lane is about 564 times better

I'm just spitballin' there.

Agreed...

I wouldn't say it's their best by far but who is over-rating Hello Goodbye?

That's actually one of the few Beatles' songs that proves why they are so revered.
