My personal favorite Beatles song is Yesterday.

"Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away.  Now it looks as though they're here to stay.  Oh, I believe in yesterday."

There are way too many favorites, so I can't pick just one. I go from Baby's in Black to If I fell to Helter Skelter. I love them all.

Oh my! That's a tough one. There are two that especially stand out to me. 

 

Let It Be - (1970 album, Let It Be) This was their last single from their last album to be released. McCartney said it was inspired by a dream about his late mother, whose name was Mary. To many fans, it became something of a Beatles farewell anthem. I was in a high school folk / pop group and we sang this a lot because it had great harmonies.

 

In My Life - (1965 album, Rubber Soul)  IMO, this is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. The lyrics are especially amazing since it seems to be reflections of a much older person, yet John Lennon was only 25 when he wrote it.  Rubber Soul is still my favorite Beatles album. 

 

Honorable mentions to -

 

Yesterday (1965, Help) Possibly the most covered Beatles song ever

Here Comes the Sun (1969, Abbey Road) 

While My Guitar Gently Weeps (1968, The Beatles, White Album)

Come Together (1969, Abbey Road) IMO, one of their best "fun" songs 

 

My favorite cover of a Beatles song -

Help - covered by Deep Purple (1968, Shades of Deep Purple) Deep Purple singer, Rod Evans, came up with the idea of singing Help as a ballad. It was reported that John Lennon heard it, and remarked that this was how he envisioned it being sung in the first place but management wanted it sung up-tempo for the movie. Lennon said it was meant to be a ballad.

 

Always fun to chat about The Beatles!

Trying  to  figure  out  my  favorite  Beatles'  song  is  like  giving  me  a  big  bowl  of  popcorn  and  asking  me  what  is  my  favorite  piece;  I  just  can't  do  it.

What is the best Beatles Song ever?

Message 17 of 17

Beatles music has been playing for more than fifty years. Their songs are as relevant today as they were in the 1960’s. As an avid Beatles fan, I am always interested in what others consider their best song. I’ll start by saying “All You Need is Love” is my personal favorite. They have so many wonderful songs so I know this post won’t dissappoint!   Kathy T.
