Favorite beatles song

Guest George

Recommended Posts

Mine is a tough choice.... I'm not really a big Beatles fan myself, and about three months ago, I hated them with a passion, but after hearing some songs, I realized they aren't bad....

The first song I liked was "Helter Skelter" and became one of my favorite songs. It's just so catchy, it has a good tempo, it's almost punk-esque. A great song.

Then I heard "A day in the life", and I couldn't belive those were Beatles. The bassline in this song is amazing, and the arrangements are also amazing, making it one of my favorite Beatles songs too.

Soon after, My friends listened to "I wanna hold your hand" so much that I actually started to llke it...

I also had a little place for "Lucy in the sky with diamonds", but the verses are quite annoying, and the chorus is something I like to hear when I'm alone, because I am even embarassed to hear it with somebody else.

Then one day I was in the car of one of my friends, all of them are Beatles-lovers, but they were listening to an MP3 cd. Suddenly a song with a gorgeuos bassline came in, then came a familiar voice which I couldn't recognized, until I asked them "Is that John Lennon? Is that The Beatles?" and they just answered "Duh!". My friends tend to hate my musical tastes because I love Primus and hate(d) Beatles. So I said what song was it, and they just said "Stairway to Heaven dude", and I just said "Fuck off, which one is it?" "It's primus dude! Don't you recognized them? They will begin to rap after this part!" .... fuckers, until I hear "One thing I can tell you is you got to be free, COME TOGETHER", then I knew I heard about that song before, and it was lovely.

So in few words:

1.- Come Together (Soundgarden's Cover = AMAZING)

2a.- A day in the life

2b.- Helter Skelter

3.- I wanna hold your hand

What are yours?


Note: For every Beatles song I like, there's about 10 I hate... Reason why I'm not a big Beatles fan, and hate the "1" album with a passion.

I like basically everything off of the Magical Mystery Tour album, this is probably the best piece of vinyl I own. I'm more partial to the Beatles later material, like Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band (which has some pretty bad ass guitar work in it), Octopus's Garden, Back in the USSR, and others.
