The 83 Best Beatles Songs Of All Time


As always with a list like this, it's incredibly, incredibly subjective. Most of these songs have been part of my life since infancy, so it's almost hard in a way to judge them as 'songs.' It'd be like making a list of my favourite words or something. If I made up a new list at this time next year, it would likely be radically different --- except for the #1. I think that'll be my favourite for a long, long time.

If I've left your top Beatles track off the list, just pretend it was an 84-song listing and your favourite was stuck at the end. That's right, the end. So I'll acknowledge your choice, but judge it inferior to my own.

"Mark, if the love you take is indeed equal to the love you make, you're not making much love by sticking your readers' choice at 'The End.' "

Shut up, voice of reason. And stop making lyric-related puns.
