Favorite Beatles Song

What is your favorite song by the Beatles during their time together? What do you like about it?

I'll start. Mine is "It Won't Be Long" from their early album "With the Beatles." It has just the right mixture of happy exuberance and wistfulness. I like the question and response use of "Yeah." And, although the Beatles themselves do it best, the version in "Across the Universe," visible on YouTube, which has a different timing to the ending, is also interesting.

@Brandon9000,
In my Life, from Rubber Soul.

Tight, wistful songwriting and typical Beatles harmonies.

Can you say a word or two about why you like these songs?

@Brandon9000,
With both of these songs I have great memories and it brings me back to
a time that was very carefree.

@Brandon9000,
There isn't a Beatles song that if it came on the radio I would switch stations. That's the ultimate praise from me Very Happy

I like their dark, poignant minor key classics:Eleanor Rigby and She's Leaving Home. The economy of words, the sad lyrics, it's marvelous music.

It's like sending a kid into a candy store. No way to choose the best out of so many masterpieces.

i've always been a big fan of Rain, perhaps it's because it's not as well known i like it, it can kind of be my song, and not everyone's gonna know it

The Chinese liked crickets because they sort of make music and they are a kind of beatle.
Why are you all looking at me like that ? Shocked
Allright, I'll go find another thread. Razz

I'm going to have to think on this, but really it varies by mood.

there are so many songs, and no one just stands out.

I like Help a lot.

the white album is my favorite, but I don't even have a favorite there that pops it's head above. one leads to another.

Never considered myself a Beetles fan. I don't know. I grew up listening to them via my mother, and I generally enjoyed most music she liked, but I could never catch on with the mop tops for some reason.

Though Hey Jude and Yesterday are two that I enjoy, they are about the only ones I have enjoyed.
