Rolling Stone : The Top Ten Beatles Songs of All Time

#10: "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"


The lyrics for George Harrison's first truly great Beatles song began with him choosing the phrase "gently weeps" from a random book. It wasn't until Harrison pulled Eric Clapton in to play guitar that the arrangement was finished.

#9: "Come Together"


Originally intended by Lennon as a campaign song for LSD guru Timothy Leary when he ran for California governor in 1970, this became the last song all four Beatles cut in the studio together.

#8: "Let It Be"



McCartney channeled Aretha Franklin's soul in "Let It Be," recorded during the peak of the Beatles' troubled times. A month after its 1970 release, McCartney announced the band had broken up.

#7: "Hey Jude"


McCartney's lyrics for "Hey Jude" were inspired by John and Cynthia Lennon's five-year-old son, Julian — but Lennon first thought McCartney was singing to him about his relationship with Yoko Ono.

#6: "Something"


Before it became the second-most-covered Beatles song behind "Yesterday," Lennon said this unexpected Harrison track was "the best track on [Abbey Road]" and McCartney called it "the best song [Harrison has] written."

#5: "In My Life"


"In My Life," featuring Lennon's most personal lyrics up until that time, is one of only a handful of Lennon-McCartney songs where the two strongly disagreed over who wrote what.

#4: "Yesterday"


The most covered song in history began as something called "Scrambled Eggs." It also began in a dream of Paul McCartney's.

#3: "Strawberry Fields Forever"


Lennon once said growing up "was scary because there was nobody to relate to." Strawberry Field, a Liverpool youth's home near where Lennon grew up, represented those haunting childhood visions. With this song, Lennon conquered them forever.

#2: "I Want to Hold Your Hand"


"I Want to Hold Your Hand" was the first exposure most American had to the songwriting magic of Lennon and McCartney. It set off Beatlemania, and represented what producer George Martin calls "the apex of Phase One of the Beatles' development."

#1: "A Day in the Life"


The ultimate Lennon-McCartney collaboration, "A Day in the Life" wasn't recognized as the band's masterwork until the Eighties, after Lennon's death. It pairs lyrics inspired by the newspapers and Lennon's own life with McCartney's idea to have classical musicians perform what producer George Martin called an "orchestral orgasm."

^ Thanks for that Mid.

..don't really agree with the order, mainly because I am not really a McCartney fan. Love most of Harrisons stuff though.... but what the hey, we are all different.

Rejected Beatles demo tape for auction
Saturday, November 24, 2012


The famous Beatles demo tape rejected by record label Decca in 1961 goes up for auction next week.

The rejected Beatles demo tape at the centre of what has been called the biggest mistake in music history goes under the hammer next week.

The record label Decca famously rejected the Fab Four on the basis of the New Year's Day 1961 recording, only for them to become the world's top act within a couple of years.

Decca's AR (artists and repertoire) man Dick Rowe passed over the Liverpool group and signed The Tremeloes instead. The Beatles went on to sign for EMI and became world stars.

Bootleg copies of the demo exist but few have heard the original 'pristine' master tape, containing 10 cover versions.

It is being auctioned in London on Tuesday by the Fame Bureau, with an asking price of $46,000. It does not, however, come with the rights to the tracks.

'Apple, the company set up by The Beatles, holds the copyright to their voices and if anyone tried to release the material without their permission they would certainly be sued,' said Fame Bureau managing director Ted Owen, The Times reports.

'This has never officially been released. It is unique and the sound quality is crystal clear. We have spoken to various experts and this is the best quality recording of this session there is.'

Bassist Paul McCartney, lead guitarist George Harrison, rhythm guitarist John Lennon and drummer Pete Best - later sacked and replaced by Ringo Starr - appear on the demo tape, recorded at the Decca studios in West Hampstead, north London.

It is marked as the Silver Beatles - the group's early name - and comes with a hand-written track list and a black-and-white image of the band, wearing leather jackets and posing with their instruments.

The tracks include Money (That's What I Want), Take Good Care Of My Baby and Till There Was You.

The Beatles' manager Brian Epstein held onto the tape and later gave it to an executive associated with EMI. That person auctioned it privately in 2002 but it has now resurfaced.

Though Rowe rejected The Beatles, he went on to sign The Rolling Stones.
Meanwhile, the black leather jacket worn by Harrison on stage during the early Sixties in Hamburg and Liverpool is being auctioned by Bonhams on December 12.

It is expected to fetch between $137,000 and $184,000.

I gotta real problem with pick #2, but otherwise not a bad compilation.
I personally think the beatles got even better when they discovered 'tea', and i still think they are the best band ever.

Love all of them songs. A huge Beatles fan.
In fact, last night there was a Grammy tribute to the Beatles. 'The Night that changed America: A Grammy tribute to the Beatles.

Many great artists singing Beatles songs like Stevie Wonder, Annie Lennox, and Katy Perry. Ringo and Paul then song a lot of the songs posted above.

Ringo talking about the Ed Sullivan Show and how it all began in America.

The Beatles music is okay, I could never see what the fuss was about, the BBC keeps broadcasting that they where the best band,but I never take the BBC seriously.
