In this thread I rank my favorite Beatles songs: 204-1.

Recommended Posts

The Background:

I don’t remember exactly when or why I decided to do this, but it’s been rumbling around in my head for a while to put the Beatles song into an order of personal preference.  When I mentioned this in passing in the Beatles thread, a few folks – @Uruk-Hai, @rockaction, @Ilov80s– encouraged me to do it and post it, while @Eephusnotably told me I was crazy to pursue it.  :lmao:

I am a Beatles late adopter.  They were before my time, and I spent my formative musical years shunning them almost entirely, with the belief that the only Beatles song I liked was I Want to Hold Your Hand (hi rockaction!).  There wasn’t a lightning-bolt moment where I changed my mind, but beginning ~20 years ago I started listening to them more and more, influenced in great part by the fact that most of my friends at the time were Chicago musicians who were Beatles obsessives.

As a result, I’m not bringing a wealth of personal stories to this endeavor nor a lifelong base of Beatles knowledge.  There are a ton of posters here with more knowledge of the Beatles and music in general than I have (I'm not tagging them in case they don't want to be associated with my paltry thread), as well as people like @wikkidpissahwho can write a compelling account of a life experience linked to any damn song.  I hope that these folks will participate actively in the discussion.  And that’s what I’m hoping this to be – not (just) a narcissistic listing of personal preferences but an opportunity to discuss my favorite music with lots of smart people with strong opinions.

The Process:

This is not a list of the Beatles songs I think are “best”; it is a rank order of which songs I like the most.   IMO A Day in the Life is the best Beatles song, but it is not my #1 favorite song.

To put together the list, I started by, over the course of months, sitting with Mr. krista at night and listening to the 12 British LPs and one British EP in order from Please Please Me through Abbey Road.  Then we listened to the singles that hadn’t been already covered, most of them collected on Past Masters.  I excluded the German versions as well as Real Love and Free as a Bird, which make me angry.  If I had it to do over, I would have worked the singles in in their correct chronological order instead.

As we listened, I typed up my comments and put the song in an initial tier, 1 through 5.  After the song ended and I had put it in a tier, I asked Mr. krista for his comments and typed those up as well. 

Once all 204-211 songs (more on that later) had been put into one of the five tiers, I then went through each tier and preliminarily ordered the songs within the tiers.  Once all five tiers were done, I meshed the tiers together, sometimes finding that I actually liked a song in a lower tier better than a song in a higher one, so it wasn’t simply adding tier 2 to tier 1, etc.

After I had this initial rank order of all the songs, I put them in a Spotify playlist in that order and then, over the course of the past several months, have listened to the entire playlist numerous times, moving songs around with each listen.  I’d estimate I’ve listened through the entire playlist at least 40 more times, with the middle part getting even more listens.  Mr. krista commented a couple of months ago that he has friends who’ve written novels in less time than I’ve spent on this.

The Result:

What I’ll be posting is not an argument that a particular song is objectively better than another; it’s just what I like best.  When I couldn’t decide on an order, I’d ask myself which song I’d rather hear if I could only hear one of them again for the rest of my life.  I also considered the non-scientific question of “how loud do I turn this up when I comes on the Beatles channel?”  😄 

A few other caveats:

1.      I’m treating the Abbey Road medley as one song for ranking purposes (sorry, Eephus), though I will rank each element of the medley internally within whatever ranking it gets as well.  In other words, if it was my 50th favorite song, I’ll post an internal ranking of 50(a), (b), etc.  With that listed as one song, I ended up with 204 songs ranked in total.  I’ll list them all in the next post.

2.      This is a Ringo-friendly thread, and if you don’t like Ringo, this might not be the thread for you, other threads out there, have a nice season, etc.

3.      Do not fear the sitar!

I’m going to start the actual countdown Monday.  I’m just posting this now because Mr. krista claims I’m never going to do this.  Speaking of Mr. krista, these are his nine Top 10 songs, in no particular order:

Taxman

Hey Bulldog

Helter Skelter

I’m So Tired

And Your Bird Can Sing

Rain

Across the Universe

I’ve Just Seen a Face

Happiness is a Warm Gun

 

A hint to my top 10:  he and I have at least one of these in common.

Again I can’t emphasize strongly enough that this will just be my own preferences.  My top ten doesn’t look like yours would.  If I were to try to describe what I like, I’d say…  I’m not sappy.  I’m not a fan of nostalgia.  Like @Gr00vussaid about himself in his thread, I’ve found that I like songs based on feel more than anything.  Unless lyrics are particularly great (see, e.g., Leonard Cohen or Townes Van Zandt) or particularly awful (see, e.g., this), they don’t move the needle that much for me.  When I do connect with lyrics, it’s not because I’m looking into them deeply to give me some inspiration on how live my life, but because they do a compelling job of evoking how I’ve already lived.

My top 10 consists of one song from Help!, two songs from Rubber Soul, two songs from Revolver, one song from Sgt. Pepper’s, one song from the White Album, one song from Abbey Road, one song from Let It Be, and one single.  Feel free to wager.

When The Beatles were big in their day they were too soft edged for me, I liked it rough, Joe Cocker, Grateful Dead, The Stones, The Doors, Janis, Jimi, etc.

Then about 10ish years ago I found a box of all their stuff on CD;s. at a yard sale.

If anything sounds better with phones on, what?

Love the effort you've put into this.

I went down a deep Youtube rabbit hole with my 7 year old a few months ago watching and ranking songs by Beatles after the band broke up.  It was a nostalgia fest for sure as they'd broken up right around the time I became sentient, and I remember the solo stuff being everywhere when I was young, but there's a lot of great songs in there too (Ringo had two #1s!).

Also, please don't leave us hanging at #147 like @Capella did with his "Every James Bond Movie" ever rankings.

How anyone could come  up with a fav 10 Beatles songs...????

I can't, really.  I have 12 that belong in my top ten, then another 10-12 that are right on their heels.  But I'm forcing myself to do this.  Masochism.

Yep, he owes us - bound to be some sleepless nights with the kid where he could catch 30 minutes of Never Say Never Again

I confess there is noway I could do that. And if I could in a few days I'd be changing my mind.

Mr. krista commented a couple of months ago that he has friends who’ve written novels in less time than I’ve spent on this.:lmao:

 

Good grief. I took the day off today and still couldn’t  find time to brush my teeth until noon.

I'm guessing this as your top 10, but it is too hard to know how the order will be, so I will first post what I think will be the top two, and the rest are in random order.

The Medley from Abbey Road (Abbey Road)

A Day In A life (Sgt. Peppers)

The other 8 will be in random order:

You've Got to Hide Your Love Away (Help!)

Norwegian Wood (This Bird has Flown) and Nowhere Man (Rubber Soul)

I'm Only Sleeping and And Your Bird Can Sing (Revolver)

Happiness is a Warm Gun (White Album)

Let It Be  (Let It Be)

Rain (single)

Oh yeah, I seem to remember that you’re one of the lucky small percentage who can survive on that.

My top 10 consists of one song from Help!, two songs from Rubber Soul, two songs from Revolver, one song from Sgt. Pepper’s, one song from the White Album, one song from Abbey Road, one song from Let It Be, and one single.  Feel free to wager.

 Speaking of Mr. krista, 

 

Not asking to be nosey, but because it has never occurred to me.. is mr. krista one of us?

I'm not asking who (none of my business), but rather if he is a lurker or regular here over the years?
