Last song side one of Abbey Road, then follow that with all of side two of Abbey Road. I like all of side two the best, it's like one continuous song, actually side one is pretty good as well. Just go ahead and listen to the whole album.

The Villages Florida

Side 1

1. "Come Together" 4:19
2. "Something" 3:02
3. "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" 3:27
4. "Oh! Darling" 3:27
5. "Octopus's Garden" 2:51
6. "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"

Side 2

1. "Here Comes the Sun" 3:05
2. "Because" 2:45
3. "You Never Give Me Your Money" 4:03
4. "Sun King" 2:26
5. "Mean Mr. Mustard" 1:06
6. "Polythene Pam" 1:13
7. "She Came In Through the Bathroom Window" 1:58

This. Although, Nowhere Man usually pops into my head. It has great harmonies, a nice tasteful guitar solo, a fantastic bass part. It also features Ringo doing perhaps the only double stroke roll in the entire Beatles catalog. He claimed that he couldn't do a proper roll, but he evidently learned how.

But as Bill said, it can change from day to day, hour to hour or even minute to minute.

It's usually referred to as "The Medley" and it begins with You Never Give Me Your Money. Here Comes the Sun and Because are stand alone songs. The end of You Never Give Me Your Money has tubular bells which are also the beginning of Sun King. All the songs, or snippets of unfinished songs (which is what they really are) are continuous through The End. Her Majesty was unbeknownst to The Beatles was tacked on by a producer.

By the way, does everyone here attend the meetings of The Beatlemaniacs of the Villages every Friday morning at the O'Dell Rec Center from 10:00am until noon? If you're Beatles fan you should. You can hear any Beatles song that you want played live by a large number of musicians.

Ringo is on all of the officially released albums. Initially, he didn't play on Love Me Do and PS I Love You, but Love Me Do was re-recorded with Ringo on drums. Ringo is playing tambourine on the single, but is playing drums on the album version.

Their first album, by the way was Please Please me and it had a lot of great songs on it.

I Saw Her Standing There
Misery
Anna (Go To Him)
Chains
Boys
Ask Me Why
Please Please Me
Love Me Do
PS I Love You
Baby It’s You
Do You Want To Know A Secret
A Taste Of Honey
There’s A Place
Twist And Shout

Which of these do you think is terrible?

How about If I Fell.

Did you know that I Saw Her Standing there was never released as the A side of a single. In the US, it was the B side of I Want to Hold Your Hand and in the UK it was only an album cut.

I have often thought (and I'm probably not the only person to make this connection) that the single event that made The Beatles the creative act they were, was their decision to stop touring in 1966. Had they still been a touring band, perhaps their songwriting would have been stuck in the more commercial style of songs that a 4 piece band could effectively emulate live. Instead, they were able to really open up the stops in both writing and producing. Yes, there are tribute bands (and of course McCartney live concerts) that do a great job recreating these later songs in a live setting, but they have the advantage of modern keyboards and synthesizers that can create sounds that could only be created in the studio at the time The Beatles first recorded the songs. I have never been a big follower of Wings, but from what I remember, McCartney's writing for Wings was mostly songs that could be recreated in a live setting, not the creative explosion that he achieved with the Beatles post-1966. Just my 2 cents worth.

Looking back now, having savored the Beatles being the soundtrack of my life since before Ed Sullivan to this day, I have to say I'm partial to the "middle period" from Rubber Soul to the White Album. Impossible to pick one song from that or any of their phases. As we know, the Beatles were one of the few bands that made consistently superb music throughout their entire career. It would be easier to name some songs I personally don't care for, either because of overplay or schmaltz. Those would be Michelle, Yesterday, Lady Madonna and especially Yellow Submarine. But even those were well-crafted tunes, just not my cup of tea.

None of them. Not a Beatles fan. Can listen to a few but have no favorites.
