What is The Beatles most complete song?

... as in great contribution from all 4 band members, kinda like U2's Acrobat maybe.

I think it is probably A Day In The Life. What a great song!

I'm gonna go slightly off topic and talk about Ballad Of John And Yoko. What a great song! Lennon's vocals and that bass! Too bad it was released in April 1979 or it could have fit into the White Album beautifully.

I'd definitely have to pick something from Abbey Road. Maybe Somthing, or Come Together, or hell, even Octopus' Garden.

1979? Yeah, it wouldn't have made it.

McCartney handles drums on that one as well, if I recall. Nice rhythm going there.

That would have been my 2nd choice. But does it have Paul singing anything? I picked A Day In The Life partly because both John and Paul have awesome vocal parts!

If you put it that way...

I chose SFF because it's, essentially the essence of the Beatles in one song. Kind of like Over The Hills And Far Away is the defining Zeppelin song. But if we're talking about contributions, I would have to second A Day In The Life or The End.

How about Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds?

John's killer verses, then he and Paul meet for the chorus, Paul's sweet bassline, George's little arrangements, and Ringo's drum thumps totally own this song.
