Top couple for me. My favorite Paul bass line. 

Yeah, that bass line descending over John's guitar is probably my favorite part of the song.  It's hypnotizing.

Prudence seems like one of those names that you don't hear much anymore. Sort of like Beatrice and Bertha.

I don't think I've ever met a Beatrice or Prudence.  They seems like pretty names.  Think there were a couple of old ladies named "Bertha" at church when I was growing up.

 Paul also played, in addition to the usual bass, piano and flugelhorn.  Because if you're Paul McCartney and see a flugelhorn lying around, naturally you can play it.  

 

As someone with no musical ability whatsoever,  I can't wrap my head around someone like Paul's musicianship. When George couldn't get a guitar solo just right Paul bangs it out in a couple takes. When Ringo walked out Paul fills in on drums.  It seems like whatever instrument the Beatles wanted to include Paul just picked it up and played.

18.  Dear Prudence (White Album, 1968)

Doesn't move in the Composite list, but a #14 ranking by K4 would have moved it up 3 spots!  There is one song that could knock it out of Composite Top 25 still left.

Heya @Getzlaf15

How many of the top-25-list songs have more than 100 total points across all the lists?  What about more than 50?

200 or more = 15 songs.  Definitely a tier mark as there is a 44-point gap between #15 and #16.

100 or more  = 39 songs.   There is one song if K4 ranks it #1,  will make that number 40.

50 or more = 59 songs.   Make that 60 songs.  One song just got enough points if picked next to hit 50.

There is one song that has 10 points, and was on FOUR lists with rankings of 25, 24, 23, 22.

It's interesting that the 71 is exactly 50% of the songs that people listed.

That one tier is really the only huge gap on the list.

17.  Here Comes The Sun (Abbey Road, 1969)

Beatles version:  Spotify  YouTube

Although this song is musically much more intricate and complicated than it seems, I'm not going to drone on and on about the musicality or analyze the structure, because what I love about this song is that it's joyous and luminous and perfect.  The song came about in a way that, based on the lyrics, isn't at all surprising.  George was getting fed up with all the business parts of being a musician, including all the tension at Apple due to the hiring of Allan Klein, the meetings with bankers and lawyers, the never-ending paperwork:  "Anyway, it seems as if winter in England goes on forever; by the time spring comes you really deserve it. So one day I decided I was going to sag off Apple and I went over to Eric Clapton's house. The relief of not having to go and see all those dopey accountants was wonderful, and I walked around the garden with one of Eric's acoustic guitars and wrote Here Comes The Sun."

This is the last George song recorded by the Beatles, and sadly John did not participate in it due to first his car accident and then...I dunno, being John, I guess.  The song isn't lacking anything by John's absence, though.  George's vocal on this song is so sweet and pure, and he's supported well by a mysterious group of orchestral musicians that have never been identified, Paul on lovely backing vocals and bass, and especially by Ringo doing what Ringo does best - providing subtle support for the song and then adding a bit of depth where needed with fills and changes.  The time signatures and changes in the song are incredible, but since I vowed not to analyze composition and structure, I"ll just tell you that George first described the song to Ringo as being "in seven-and-one-half time," and the song is variously in 7/8, 11/8, 4/4, and 2/4!

One unusual part worth mentioning is that George using a Moog synthesizer, which had only just been invented and George had had specially made.  George admitted that when it arrived he had absolutely no idea how to use this monstrous contraption, which I think turned out well because the simple sounds he was able to get out of it complemented the song beautifully without going overboard.

Seems fitting that the last song from "Quiet Beatle" would be so quietly perfect.

Mr. krista:  "That’s a great song.  Seems like a song Stevie Wonder could have written, but with a great George Harrison riff."

Suggested cover:  Please enjoy one of my top five favorite Beatles covers of all time:  Richie Havens  Here's his entire set at Woodstock, including this song

With respect to these:

There was a lot of whining about #197 and #187, but I guess people could have those in their top 100 and still whine about their placements, so I get it.  I'd definitely have #197 higher (Binky: lower) if I had it to do over.

There was waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy too much whining about #137 and #122 for them not to have been on any list.  :lol: 

I was sure someone (Alex P Keaton?) said #131 was on his list, but whoever said it maybe didn't submit one.

Mildly surprised about #112, 103, and 96 given the commentary.

If Mr. krista had done a list #91 would have been on it.  It's rotated at times into his #10 until he recently declared "In My Life" the #10.

So you are correct on #131.  it's on a list. I didn't have it with a K-RankTM.  Don't know why I listed it as a Medley song.

Funny thing about the number 164: not only is it the sum of two squares (100+64), the first two digits are a perfect square, as are the last two digits, as is the leading digit as well as the last digit. Oh, and it is also the sum of a square and a cube (10^2 + 4^3) and its digits reversed are also the sum of two squares (461 = 10^2 + 19^2).

16.  Ticket To Ride (Help!, 1965)

Beatles version:  Spotify  YouTube

IT'S A RINGO SHOWCASE!  I'm not surprised at anyone guessing this as my #1 or in my top 10, what with it being A RINGO SHOWCASE! and all.  It missed out only because there are so many ####### great Beatles songs.

John described this song as one of the first heavy-metal songs, and he took credit for all but the drum parts on it, while Paul saw it as more of a 60/40 collaboration favoring John.  I don't know who's correct, though with Paul contributing not only the drum arrangement but the bass, backing vocals, and the guitar solos, he certainly contributed significantly even if not in the songwriting.  And I don't know that I'd call it "heavy metal," but the drums, the guitars and the overall fullness of the sound were certainly heavy for the time.  I just know it's in my top 16 for being A RINGO SHOWCASE!

I don't want to downplay all the other great stuff going on in this RINGO SHOWCASE!  There's some great guitar work by Paul on this song in the solos on the bridges and especially in the fade-out, and I love Ringo's shimmering tambourine that ends the solo on the bridge.  I love John's cold, dry vocal, and Paul adds some amazing harmonies that fittingly lack the sweetness of earlier works; there's a little "ahhhh" that John does ~2:30-2:31 that ####### melts me.  The coda at the end is marvelous, bringing in a new element in double-time with the "my baby don't care" line that hadn't been heard before.  But what makes it A RINGO SHOWCASE! starts at the very beginning, with a short fill and then that crazy syncopated drum pattern that fills the verses.  His overdubbed tambourine on the second and fourth beats serves to enhance how unusual the drumbeats are. Then in the bridge, the drums switch to a standard beat and Ringo utilizes the hi-hat for the first time, with a double-time tambourine also by Ringo in an overdub (actually coming in one beat early on the first bridge but not the second), offering a dramatic contrast to the syncopated verses.  And - again with the fills - Ringo has a series of fills in which he never plays the same fill twice!  Truly (all together now) A RINGO SHOWCASE!

Mr. krista:  "I love how seamlessly he goes right to that hi-hat.  If you watch the YouTube, you can see how boring and dumb that song would be otherwise. Watching reminds me of how everybody I know writes a drum or bass part, but he made something interesting in service of the song.  He came up with a beat that was uniquely him and also makes the song.  It’s not the same song without that beat, and it’s very instructive.  You have to listen to a lot of rock to see the standard way, but when something deviates from that, it’s like describing a void – they didn’t do xyz.  I love that song.  It’s one of the main reasons why Ringo is the best, a fantastic drummer."  (Obviously he knows this is A RINGO SHOWCASE!)

Suggested cover:  Take a heavy song and make it heavier?  Nice!  Hüsker Dü

I edited the title to give a shout-out to @Getzlaf15 and @pecorino.

Btw, I agree that 164 is a really cool number.  Extremely pleasing.

Personal rankings!  My estimation of your rankings began and ended with She Said She Said.  Don't fear the sitar, she said.

Pretty pleased Nowhere Man is still alive.

Ringo is great, but he is no Karen Carpenter. Karen on drums!
