The 5 Best and 5 Worst Beatle Songs
What with the release of the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band's 50th anniversary collection, the Beatles are, once again, enjoying a resurgence of popularity. Not only are people of all ages buying the new issue, a lot of folks are becoming reacquainted with other, more obscure works by the quartet.
The webiste, Vulture.com has compiled a list of all 213 of the Beatles songs and has ranked them from best to worst. I'll prvide you with a link at the end of the story so that you can check out the complete list, but I thought that, for now, we'll concentrate on the Top 5 of the best songs and the, I guess you'd call it bottom 5 of the worst.
According to the article, these are the worst Beatles songs
5. "Dig a Pony" from "Let It Be", 1970
4. "Tell Me What You See" from "Help!", 1965
3. "Little Child" from "With the Beatles", 1963
2. "Dig It" from "Let It Be", 1970
1. "Good Day Sunshine" from "Revolver", 1966
I have to tell you that, to my ears, that is far from the worst song the Beatles ever did, but Vulture didn't consult me on the deal.
So, what are the top 5 BEST Beatle songs?
5. "Please Please Me" from "Please Please Me", 1963
4. "She Loves You", which was released as a single in 1963
3. "Penny Lane", which was released as a single in 1967
2. "Strawberry Fields Forever", which was released as a single in 1967
1. "A Day in the Life" from "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", 1967
The original article is very interesting and the author explains his reasons for his decisions on the list. I'd be willing to bet if 100 people were asked to do the same list, no two would be anything alike.
