Great song and performance from George, with Eric Clapton on lead guitar.

Although this song has a piano intro, it is a spectacular guitar classic, with lyrics that seem to be both prosaic and transcendental at the same time.

Strawberry Fields Report Abuse
A great song based on a place where John Lennon and his friends used to play when they were kids. A hazy impressionistic dreamworld of a song, as per the words of producer George Martin.

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.

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.

This powerful song has a driving rhythm and almost biblical feel to the lyrics.

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 song is not the Beatles finest hour lyrically, but it has an excellent melody and production. They put on their Sgt Pepper suits to film a mimed performance which fans will appreciate.

Melancholy Paul McCartney ballad that some people love and others find boring. Paul objected to the lush orchestration and choir that Phil Spector overdubbed onto this track and in 2003 he released a stripped-down version on the Let It Be Naked Album.

Song based around one of the Beatles most memorable guitar riffs. The lyrics criticise insincere people and contain quite a few subtle references to drugs and sex.

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.

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.

Despite its bouncy commercial sound, the Beatles regarded this song as just album filler and they never performed it live. It was however released as a single in the US and it reached number 1.

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.

Wholesome song about leisurely drives into the countryside, but the lyrics also seem to reflect Paul and John's separation as the group were breaking up. John also provides an amusing introduction to the song.

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.
