Yep, one of the best album sides ever. Best is arguably side one of Dark Side of the Moon.

Oh yeah, especially "She came in through the bathroom window"! The ringing chiming guitar riff is awesome!

I saw a McCartney tour, circa early nineties. It was the first tour that Eleanor Rigby was played live. Definitely goose bump time!

My 2nd favorite Beatles song is everything but 'in my life'

Only related because someone mentioned DSOM, there is a really good documentary about that Pink Floyd album (on Netflix).

Back to the Beatles, I could be persuaded to change my fave to the closing medley on Abbey Road.

Nothing existed before the Beatles...

The Beatles would disagree, as they and the Stones and other British bands were heavily influenced by 50s American rock, and old blues.

Right, for anyone to say that nothing existed before the Beatles is just.... hmmm, struggling for words that fit community guidelines and/or don't sound condescending.... OK, it just doesn't fit reality. Music/art does not work that way.

We stand on the shoulders of giants.

Twist and shout was not written by the Beatles though you can't help but like it.
I like the early stuff best. By the time the Lucy in the sky era came, I was done.

From Rolling Stone's list of best Beatles songs. A few of my favs are here.

10. While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
9. Come Together.
8. Let It Be.
7. Hey Jude.
6. Something.
5. In My Life.
4. Yesterday.
3. Strawberry Fields Forever.
2. I Want to Hold Your Hand.
1. A Day in the Life.

What I'd add: Lots, Including "Get Back".

That one (Lovely Rita) is amazing. Most bands end a song "normally", but they put down a feel at the end of that which topped it off. I can't imagine leading into "Good Morning" any other way.

That's a great question. When you really think about it, it makes you realize how far popular music has fallen in terms of quality over the past 40 years.
I'd say my favorite of all time was "The Long and Winding Road". It is so moving, on so many levels. But as far as older Beatle songs, I'd have to give my vote to "She Loves You".

This is probably not anyone's favorite, but it's fun and different to see Paul on the right. I guess they had to share two mikes, so the lead singer got the single.
