    This list is going to piss too many hardcore fans off. You need a TOP 100 list! That way you can put all the songs I wish were on there on there.

    Damn, none of the later years songs with Yoko screeching in the background made the list.

    Personally, I always liked the line

    "sitting on a cornflake waiting for the van to come"

    I can't say that I was disappointed by this list, as it was quite good. I was hoping I Am the Walrus would be on here. John is right in that the lyrics are obscure, which is what makes it such a wonderful, yet underrated song.

    1. All You Need Is Love

    So simple yet so genius. No other band could have done this song it. The perfect example of Hippie ideals and what the Beatles (at the time) truely felt they stood for, which is a message so simple that anyone in the world could get it.

    There's nothing you can do that can't be done…

    All you need is love, love

    Love is all you need

    The words to the song Inner Light is taken from the Tao Te Ching. And I quote,

    "Without stirring abroad

    One can know the whole world;

    Without looking out of the window

    One can see the way of heaven.

    The further one goes

    The less one knows.

    Therefore the sage knows without having to stir,

    Identifies without having to see,

    Accomplishes without having to act."

    Tao Te Ching, Book Two, Chapter 47. Lao Tzu

    Makes me wonder if Harrison had read the Tao Te Ching and was inspired by it to write the song Inner Light.

    Whenever I hear "I've Got a Feeling", I am immediately transported back to that magic winter, tripping around with my friends, and feeling that anything was possible. It's definitely one of my very faves.

    Another one of my husband's and my favourite songs is "I Will". We sang this beautiful song at our wedding.

    "Twist and shout" is not a Beatles song.

    And making that list must've been one of the hardest jobs on Earth. I couldn't do it.

    Strawberry Fields Forever hasn't had a mention. I think it is the best song ever written and the film clip has 60's written all over it. Brilliant.

    This is a tough list to compile considering how many number one hits they had. I've always been a big fan of the song "Helter Skelter," but I would be surprised to see it on a standard top ten list.

    I would have put 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer' up there, along with 'Act Naturally'. Kinda underestimated, yet so good.

      Mackenzie, if I'm not mistaken, "Act Naturally" is a Ringo Starr song.

    Great list!! I agree-must be hard to pick the 10 best Beatles songs-top 100 would have been better. Let it Be is my favorite Beatles song and maybe favorite overall song of all time

    In My Life, should be there, in my opinion.

    It’s really tough to pick out the top few though.

    1 very important song missing from the list; “in my life” one of the greatest songs ever written

    Not a bad list.
    It’s tough to try to narrow the Beatles’ music down like that.

    Only thing is that I would put “In My Life” in there, but that may jut be because it’s my favourite song.
    “And these memories lose their meaning
    When I think of love as something new”
    And George Martin’s piano parts are genius in the song.

    Yeah…
    But “everybody has a wet dream” is a winner too.

    It’s never work trying to make top ten songs by The Beatles. Top 50 maybe appropriate?

    this is debatable everyone has their own favs but you cant leave out “got to get you into my life” “let it be”
    “strawberry fields” “norweigian wood” “I want to tell you” , I think “A day in the life” comes to mind for almost anyone

    better to list your top albums: mine our 1. Revolver 2. Beatles 65 3. Let it be

    Where’s Revolution 9? Oh come on, you have to admit it’s the best Beatles song ever. Forever.

    I still don’t agree that making a Top100 Beatles song would be easier.
    I’ve done it, or try to do it before myself but still a lot of classic songs were left behind.
    Goes to show the brillance of this band, even their “lesser known” songs would be a considered a classic. And other artists could retire and call themselves genius if they had written these “lesser known” songs by the Beatles

    On a side note, my favorie song of the Fab Four is “Don’t Let Me Down”

    For “Run for Your Life,” Lennon borrowed the line; “I’d rather see you dead, little girl, than to be with another man” from Elvis’ “Baby, Let’s Play House.” Songwriter Arthur Gunter was pretty hardcore too, huh?

    You must put I Want To Hold Your Hand on this list, the reason why Beatles get a fame in us. “No sex, No drugs, No frustated love. They’re just want to hold your hand”.

    I don’t understand the Beatles popularity at all, I’ve heard nearly every single song – being friends with a fan. But they do in fact SUCK. They are nothing more than the very first boy band.
