My Top Ten: Beatles Songs

20 Feb

10. “Octopus’s Garden” – One of Ringo’s two songs. Light-hearted. Lovely. Littoral.

9. “Come Together” – Absurd. Animated. Acid trip.

8. “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” – Simple. Smart. Sexy.

7. “In My Life” – Passionate. Pensive. Pure.

6. “When I’m 64” – Merry. Melodic. Memorable.

5. “Something” – Harrison’s best. Romantic. Rousing. Real.

4. “Hey Jude” – Invigorating. Inspiring. Infectious.

3. “I’ve Just Seen a Face” – Bewitching. Beguiling. Breathtaking.

2. “Get Back” – Fun. Fast. Fantastic.

1. “A Day in the Life” – Complex. Crazed. Calming.

Honorable mentions: “Rocky Raccoon,” “It’s Only Love,” “Helter Skelter,” “If I Fell”

    Who can argue? But…some of the nostalgic ones like “Yesterday” are also winners — even if I don’t want to hear it right now. All in all, your choices hit the nail on the head!
