Underrated Beatles songs!

Yes, it's the counterthread! Anyway, list The Beatles songs that you feel are underrated. Here are mine: The Inner Light and Tomorrow Never Knows! I never see people talking about those songs, they are amazing! Sure they may not be as good as some of their classics like Come Together or Let It Be. But they're still amazing!


The Inner Light:
"The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows

Arrive without travelling
See all without looking
Do all without doing"


Tomorrow Never Knows:
"And ignorance and hate may mourn the dead
It is believing, it is believing"

Tomorrow Never Knows, while an excellent song, is not exactly underrated I think... at least not among serious Beatles fans!

George Harrison's Old Brown Shoe is also severely underrated.

The Ballad of John and Yoko

I don't know that its underrated, but "In My Life" is one of the best songs ever recorded, even if it can seem sappy. I can't tell you how many weddings and funerals I've heard that at and it always makes sense.

Rubber Soul...the turning point in Beatle musicality...they started growing up. Great, great, great album, the precursor to Revolver and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Reggie - you are earning pic points

I 'In My Life'. Makes me cry for some reason every time I hear it. Kinda of like "Imagine". Probably both on my all time fave list, if I had one

i've got no idea what's considered underrated as far as the beatles go. but i'll second "you can't do that". there's a bunch of earlier stuff that i love that most people write off as being early pop crap.
