Really like Revolution a lot. I think that the song is good due to the distorted sound of the guitars, that really draws me into the song and the airplane noises. Also the song looked really cool when playing the Beatles RockBand (just sayin'). Helter Skelter is a close second though.
I Am the Walrus is the best Beatles song.
Wait, is that the origin of your nickname?
Nah. My original, launch-day username on the site was just my name and some numbers after it, and the ability to change your username is pretty new, so I just decided to make a new account- and it was right around the time TooHuman was coming out, and I thought it was funny- I originally was shooting for Infinite Walrus, a King of the Hill reference, but it was taken everywhere. The fact that I Am The Walrus is my favorite Beatles song is a happy coincidence.
i'll get shit for this but i think the beatles are GROSSLY overrated, they're good no doubt, but DAMN are they overrated.
that said, eleanor rigby is probably my favorite beatles song.
they're the citizen kane of movies. painted as the BEST EVAH, but clearly other things have surpassed them but since they were influential everyone gives them this honorary title of BEST EVER. which is gross.
Big fan of the White Album I see?
Yeah, absolutely. It's without a doubt the best Beatles album, followed by Abbey Road. It's the most experimental, least poppy, just-the-right-amount-of-production stuff that they ever did. Abbey Road, while awesome, was a bit too slickly produced for my tastes and Let It Be was a train wreck in that regard. Plus, The White Album was basically just a bunch of solo stuff mashed together, except only for the most part. For example, the Lennon songs on The White Album are some of my favorite Beatles/Lennon stuff ever, but I'm nowhere near as big of a fan of Lennon once he actually went solo. His songs on The White Album were mostly his songs, but the rest of the group was still able to rein him in a bit. Once he got out on his own, he didn't have anybody to tell him "no," and the quality of his work suffered.
Other, because I have bad taste.

I fixed all of you guys' posts for you. You're welcome.
Ooof, what a tough question! If backed into a corner, I guess I would pick "When I Saw Her Standing There". It's a simple, fun song that I can listen to in almost any mood. The runner-ups are Tomorrow Never Knows and Day Tripper for similar reasons. I find that songs like Yellow Submarine and Yesterday require me to be in a certain emotional state to get the most enjoyment out of them.
Everyone knows I've Just Seen a Face is the best Beatles song
I gotta give that one to "I've Just Seen A Face" because its just a great, catchy pop song that I can never get enough of.
@casper_: I originally picked A Day in the Life, but after listening to I've Just Seen a Face again I had to change
I've Just Seen a Face
Weird. I never knew that "I've Just Seen a Face" had such a large following. I never thought the song really sounded all that special. I mean, it stood out from the other tracks on Help! by nature of being acoustic and folk-rocky, but let's be honest, folk rock was not really the Beatles' strongest genre. The song really just attempts to replicate what dozens of other bands of the same time were doing much, much better.
You ruined your own poll when you added the 'other' option!
I know! I was really torn about whether or not to include it. I eventually decided that if I didn't, the entire thread would just be people whining that I didn't include their favorite song or whatever anyway.
