After this week, I've been going back and forth throughout the beatles catalog like I have never before. Playing through Rock Band has let me gain a new appreciation for most of the beatles work. Harmonix has totally given us something much better and much more loving than any documentary could ever do. So going back and forth, I'd just like to point out some of my new favorites.
Maxwell's Silver Hammer - Actually, I loved this song way before Beatles Rock Band came out. Due to a flash on newgrounds.com(that website ran by the Behemoth guys). The flash kinda perfectly captures the brilliant mix of playful, fun rhythm and delivery with some very psychotic, creepy characters that could definantly drive the story of a horror movie.... It's a less praised song, but I absolutely love it.
I Am The Walrus - Obvious choice #1. This song never gets old, Lennon nails the delivery of the lyrics, arguably the best vocals that he's ever done in any song. LSD has never sounded better.
Dear Prudence - When Considering the best Beatles songs, this has to be in there. This song tears into your soul. Paul gives one of his best bass lines, everybodies voice is beautiful, George's continous accoustic guitar loop keeps the song going, the band jams the song briefly in the end. To me, this is the perfect Beatles song.
Come Together - Super Obvious Choice #2. Listening to this song makes you wonder what happened to Top 40 music. Psychedelic Beatles at their best.
