Top Favorite Beatles Songs

Updated: Jan 2

#20 Good Day, Sunshine (Revolver, 1966): To start off, this song is perfect to listen to right away in the morning. On a perfect sunshine day. I believe the earliest memory I have of this song is from an episode of Full House.

#19 Twist And Shout (Please, Please Me, 1963): Although this is NOT an actual Beatles song, this of course had to make the list, it just had to. I know for a fact the earliest memory I have of this song is in the infamous movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

#18 Don't Let Me Down (Let It Be, 1970): Some would say that this song is not high enough on this list, but I just started getting into this song a couple of years ago. When I was younger, I didn't really understand this song, so I just didn't listen to it. But now that I am older, I completely understand it and I love it.

#17 She Loves You (Meet The Beatles!, 1964): This was one of my first favorite Beatles songs EVER. This is from, what I like to call the cute Beatles era (which consists of 1962-1966) I just have the best memories of listening to this on my first-ever Beatles album, which is Beatles:1 consisting of all twenty-seven of their number one singles.

#16 With A Little Help From My Friends (Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, 1967): This is a song that is so fun, and it introduces us to "Billy Shears", sparking "Paul Is Dead".

#15 Penny Lane (Magical Mystery Tour, 1967): This was another one of my favorites from when I was younger - it's really a fun song. It's so simple, yet it has a great back story, being that Paul wrote it about an actual street in Liverpool.

#14 Hello, Goodbye (Magical Mystery Tour, 1967): I always thought this song was on Sgt. Pepper's since the music video features them in their Sgt. Pepper's outfits.

#13 Ticket To Ride (Help!, 1965): This was one of my favorites, if not my absolute favorite, song from The Beatles when I used to listen to Beatles: 1. I could not tell you why I loved this song so much, but I did. So of course, I had to add it to this list.

#12 Get Back (Let It Be, 1970): This song from the first time I heard it, to this day, always sounds like you're riding a horse. Every time I hear it, it makes me want to go horseback riding.

#11 You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (Help!, 1965): I consider this to be an early Beatles song that I listened to a lot when I was younger.

#10 All My Loving (With The Beatles, 1963): This song is PURE cute Beatles, it just screams cute love song. I absolutely love this song and how cute it is.

#9 While My Guitar Gently Weeps (The White Album, 1968): Since we've reached the top ten, we're getting to the serious songs. This is one of my top tens because when I truly started getting into this song, I started to pay attention to George's songs more. I was more fascinated by him and his songs.

#8 All You Need Is Love (Magical Mystery Tour, 1967): This is one of the most positive songs I have ever heard in my life. When I was younger, I just used to sing along with it because it was a fun song. But now that I'm older, growing, understanding life a little more now, I completely love this song and see why it is so great and so popular.

#7 The Long And Winding Road (Let It Be, 1970): This was number twenty-seven (out of twenty-seven) on Beatles: 1. This was a song that I heard at St. Louis' Union Station in a Beatles store. This was a song that Paul McCartney recorded himself, completely by himself. And it's such a conclusion for The Beatles. It sums everything up about this band and my feelings for them as well.

#6 Come Together (Abbey Road, 1969): One of the most famous Beatles songs, it's also interesting. "Shoot me" coming from John Lennon... There's probably tons of messages or whatever like that in not only this song, but also several other Beatles songs.

#5 Here Comes The Sun (Abbey Road, 1969): Cracking the top five - Here Comes The Sun. What a simple, yet so uplifting song. And it of course came from George Harrison (who performs it perfectly by himself as well.) I have heard this song EVERYWHERE. Movies, tv shows, just everywhere. And it kind of goes back to Good Day Sunshine, being a positive song, and it's also about the sun.

#4 Hey Jude: Truly one of the best Beatles songs out there. I don't know how anyone can't love this song. And the story behind it just makes it that much better - McCartney, you are the better song-writer. The meaning behind the song is that John Lennon's son, Julian, was upset about his parents splitting up and Paul was there for him. Paul said to him, "Hey Jules, it'll be okay. Accept this new woman (Yoko Ono) into your life. You'll be okay." But he didn't think "Hey Jules" sounded quite right, so he then changed it to "Hey Jude".

#3 Something (Abbey Road, 1969): Of course there had to be a George song cracking not only the top five, but also the top three. When I was younger, I listened to this song, but I never loved it or really listened to it until a few years ago. And that guitar solo in it is one of the greatest ever.

#2 Let It Be (Let It Be, 1970): There is a reason this is number two and not number one, but we'll get to that next. "Let It Be" is the greatest Beatles song in my opinion, with so much meaning behind it. The story goes that it was a time when The Beatles were just not holding it together anymore. It was almost the end of The Beatles and Paul was so doubtful and down on himself. He had a dream that his mother came to him, who died when Paul was young of cancer and said to him, "Let it be, let it be". Paul then decided to put it into one of the greatest songs ever.

#1 I Want To Hold Your Hand (Meet The Beatles!, 1964): This is THEE Beatles song. This is thee cutest Beatles song ever. This was the one that put The Beatles to the top in America. This was their first number one hit in the US. This was one of many songs they performed on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. This was when Beatlemania struck hard. This deserves the top spot because it is forever my favorite Beatles songs. I mean, seriously, just look at them.
