what is the best beatle song and why?

Recommended Posts

yes but eleanor rigby is on revolver....

That's a good one too, but not really one of my favorites...

Another excellent song, IMO, also from Revolver, that I don't think has been mentioned yet is "For No One". A very lovely tune, beautiful lyrics and vocals by Paul, with a nice french horn solo by Alan Civil. I always found this one quite sad and touching. :puppyeyes:

"Your day breaks, your mind aches

You find that all her words of kindness linger on

When she no longer needs you

She wakes up, she makes up

She takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry

She no longer needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing

No sign of love behind the tears

Cried for no one

A love that should have lasted years

You want her, you need her

And yet you don't believe her when she said her love is dead

You think she needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing

No sign of love behind the tears

Cried for no one

A love that should have lasted years

You stay home, she goes out

She says that long ago she knew someone but now he's gone

She doesn't need him

Your day breaks, your mind aches

There will be times when all the things she said will fill your head

You won't forget her

And in her eyes you see nothing

No sign of love behind the tears

Cried for no one

A love that should have lasted years"

As others have said though, they had lots of great songs so its very difficult to choose only a few, let alone one. :headphones:

i would say either "for no one" or "something"(but i'm partial to the anthology version)

Both of those are sooooooo emotional. and if you actually read the lyrics to each of them, you just...they move you...

Without a doubt " You Never Give Me Your Money" where you hear such a variety of Beatle styles in a single tune, it isn't often a top-'o the -mind choice and ,well- -- it rocks ! :thumbsup: :beatnik:

"I'm Looking Through You" on Rubber soul. It's my fav for more personal reasons. When i was driving my mom to the hospital and the sun was just rising, but my mother was crying because she was about to have major surgery to where the odds of surviving weren't too high. But this song came on and i put my hand on her shoulder and we both started to sing this. Since then, this has been my favorite beatles song.
