Thread: Beatle songs

  1. #1

    Default Beatle songs

    while i was at work today i got to thinking about what Beatle songs i really liked, so at lunchtime i sat down with my coke and smokes and compiled a list of my favourite Beatle tracks...and there were a few surprises in the list.
    1.with being a huge Macca fan i was surprised that there were only 4 of his songs that made the top 20, and when i modified it to my 3 favourite tracks he did not rate a mention
    2.there were few singles in my list
    3.15 of the songs came from the period '67 onwards
    4. the list contains 9 Lennon songs,5 Harrison,4 Macca songs and 2 john/paul vocals.

    anyway heres the list, the first three are my 3 faves,the rest in no particular order:

    norwegian wood
    across the universe
    do you want to know a secret?
    you've got to hide your love away
    dear prudence
    sexy sadie
    here comes the sun
    lady madonna
    i've just seen a face
    all you need is love
    she came in through the bathroom window
    oh darlin'!
    a day in the life
    two of us
    i am the walrus
    strawberry fields forever
    cry, baby cry
    while my guitar gently weeps

    make your own list or comment on mine...i would be interest in Gryphon's comments, being the bonefide Beatle-phile that he is

    Tough ask. Today it's:

    Do You Want to Know a Secret
    All my Loving
    A Hard Day's Night
    And I Love Her
    Help !
    Ticket to Ride
    Norwegian Wood
    Nowhere Man
    Eleanor Rigby
    Strawberry Fields Forever
    She's Leaving Home
    A Day in the Life
    While my Guitar Gently Weeps
    Happiness is a Warm Gun
    I Will
    Cry, Baby Cry

    Tomorrow it may be very different...

    Our lists are very different, it seems.

    It's a mixed up sensation this being alive

    Oh it leaves a man weary
    It makes a man frown.

    Rather poncy, a lot of it. They were forced to write for kids and everyone else, once they got too big.
    I think they were at their peak with things like "Lend Me Your Comb'.

    Music Head,

    I think JTRiff is refering to Cookie on the old 77 Sunset Strip TV series.
