As I posted before, “All you need is love” is my absolute go to, cheer me up, make me

smile and sing song. Just makes my day

to hear it! I truly love all their songs, but

some more than others.The genius

collaboration that was Lennon/McCartney

is a rare and amazing thing. I feel blessed

to have their music in my life still!!

Too many great songs to choose only one. Dear Prudence, I am the Walrus, Baby Your a Rich Man and all the takes of Strawberry Fields Forever come to mind. Usually whatever I’m listening to is my favorite. A Day In The Life is probably the song I listen to most often.

Where do you start? It's a great body of work. Almost sacreligious to pick 2 or 3.

I mostly like the ones with the least overdubs, where they play as pure rock 

quartet. 1.) Back in the USSR-just two guitars, harmony vocals, punchy rhythm section  

work by Paul/bass, Ringo/drums.

2.) Helter Skelter-for basically the same reasons.

I suggest you all get a copy of The Beatles Naked. No strings or fills. Just them.

I think their whole catalog is utterly fabulous, I could have any of them. I just happen

to like these two for that reason.

I threw a couple of Beatles parties at the library I worked at.  At one of the parties, my guest speaker was a professor of music who talked about how really very good the Beatles were at song composition.  He cited "A Day in the Life" and "She's Leaving Home" as examples of excellence.

I love all the Beatles songs but the first one of I think of is the song my husband and I called "Our" song when we first began going steady 48 years ago. The song was With a Little Help From My Friends. Still love it! Tres

We can all agree picking one song is impossible. But if you twist my arm I'll go with side 2 of Abbey Road beginning with Mean Mr Mustard and ending with

Her Majesty.

 

 

Need to shine these up a bit.

As I have said before. Too many great songs to choose from to pick just one. Your three choices are great for sure, but that song catalog is too deep and fabulous to pick just one.
