Considered one of the greatest songs of all time. Based on John Lennon's insecurities as the band rose to prominence. Lennon also felt that it was one of his most honest songs. There have been many covers of this song by many different bands.

Together with Penny Lane this is probably the world's greatest ever double a-side, although it did not sell as well as other Beatles singles. It was kept off the top of the UK chart due to grannies buying a cheesy Englebert Humperdinck record.

Yellow Submarine Report Abuse
One of the Beatles' most iconic songs, a psychadelic tale of a trip on a yellow submarine. Eventually turned into an animated movie.

The animated film got the best out of this song. It did not fit very well on the Revolver album.

This impressive track introduces the Beatles theatrical alter egos at the start of their most famous album and there is a shorter reprise before the final track on the album.

This is one of the most adventurous Beatles recordings. It can be seen as John Lennon's antidote to suburban boredom, with lots of horns, a screeching guitar solo, and a host of animal sounds.

One of the best songs on Beatles For Sale, it has a fairly dark lyric which tells the story of a man being unable to contact his girlfriend, who he suspects of being unfaithful.

Haunting and delicate George Harrison song about spiritual awakening which is placed adjacent to raucous uptempo tracks on the White Album. There's a polarity of views about this song: some people love it and others don't rate it at all.

This is a very unusual topic for a hit single. The song takes the form of a letter to a publisher from a hack writer. The Beatles sing harmonies from a French folk song and Ringo really pounds his drum-kit.

This was the first Lennon-McCartney song to break into the US top 100 when Del Shannon covered it in 1963. Although it's a hugely catchy tune, his version pales in comparison to the Beatles original.
