If you really want to fix it, make it a Shiner.

I think John Lennon's birthday is tomorrow. I'll play "Twist And Shout".

That's an impossible question, but if I had to choose I'd probably go with Here Comes the Sun too (or Revolution, Twist and Shout not written by the Beatles, All You Need is Love, Nowhere Man, Rocky Raccoon, Come Together, ...).

Lennon penned more of my favorites by far than McCartney.

The Beatles are still my favorite band of all time, but I could start a thread on what's your least favorite Beatles song - I don't care if I ever hear Hey Jude or Yesterday again. Two of many (not just Beatles) truly great songs that just got overplayed...

I could never choose a favorite Beatles' song--so many great ones have been mentioned here--but I would pick Hey Jude as my least favorite from the first time I heard it, for no good reason.

It happens that this is what is playing on my Pandora Radio right now!

There is a "The Beatles Radio" on Pandora. I usually use the "Shuffle" feature with other radio channels on Pandora like:



OK some people might not like Baez's politics but she had a great voice.

There are so many great Beatles tunes that I can't pick one.

The opening guitar lick in Something in the Way She Moves is great.

Since they stopped touring in 1966, it's easy to just focus on the their studio prowess (along with George Martin and staff at Abbey Road), but they were actually a pretty damned good rock n roll band.

I come from Chicago, I have no idea what a Shiner is but I know what a slider is. Make it a twofer.

Oh, a black eye? Well, he left it no doubt to help with good Rocky's revival.

Another vote for "Here Comes the Sun". I'm not really a huge Beatles fan, though they have tons of 'lovely tunes'. Lots of great ones to pick from. But there's just something special that connects with that song on the first warm day of Spring.

Now, onto the least favorite thread...
