Eric Clapton did a great job playing lead on this track, although most Beatle fans would probably prefer to hear George playing.

Often praised but frankly I think it's bit dull.

The guitars, drumming, the whole feel of the song. Easily one of the best overlooked songs.

In My Life Report Abuse
The sweetest guitar intro ever written. Lennon's lyrics were some of the best he ever penned and his vocal from the world-weary beginning to the pleading-falsetto ending were never better than this.

It is a trademark of the Beatles that they put out such a great song as a b-side.

A Day In the Life Report Abuse
Perfect example of the Beatles' influence. No one had even thought of taking three unfinished songs and putting them together. Nicely over-produced.

The closest the Beatles came to recording a country/rockabilly song other than "Act Naturally." Simple yet perfectly conceived.

Abby Road Suite Report Abuse
The closing of Abby Road from "Polythene Pam" to "The End" is pure genius. If it wasn't stretching the boundaries a what is a song, I'd put it at number one.

Ticket to Ride Report Abuse
The best of early Beatles songs. Ringo's drum line, the inspired vocal. Watching this performed at Shea Stadium leaves no doubt to the heights this group would ascend.

George's first great song. Harmonies must have inspired Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. One of the best songs on Rubber Soul.
