"I'm Down" sounds lousy to me. Most everything else by The Beatles is Golden.

Love the Beatles, but to me this is a much more interesting question than favorite Bealtes song.

#1 cringe-worthy:



#2 cringe-worthy:



#3 cringe-worthy:

'Back in the USSR' is definitely my favourite as a reply to the Beach Boys who I discovered and loved before The Beatles. Least favourite is pretty hard to pick!

That's funny, 'cause I've always really liked "She's So Heavy". Jazzy little break, I like the doubling of the voice/guitar, and then that heavy lick that just builds and builds and builds with the white noise to an abrupt end.

Maybe it's because it's a song for Yoko, and I blame her still no matter what Paul says now!

"The Ballad of John and Yoko" might change your mind. Paul was doing it. Meaning he still rocked. It was a Lennon song, of course.

I think they were the only 2 Beatles involved in that song if memory serves me. That song was pre Let it Be sessions, so I'm good with that song.

Yeah, only John (guitar & lead vocal) and Paul (drums, bass, piano, harmony vocal) played on the recording of "The Ballad of John and Yoko." So, George was given the B-side of that single, with his "Old Brown Shoe"--a nice little rocker.

(Happy 73rd birthday today, John!)

OK, that explains it!

But I still think the song is great, I'll overcome that bit of background.


Ever listen to Plastic Ono Band, Live Peace In Toronto? Fantastic raw rock & roll - one reviewer said it was like a garage band with immense talent. Then, side two.... Yoko starts 'singing', OMG! I actually kinda liked the screaming she did on "Cold Turkey" - it augmented the pain of withdrawal. But then she just wails on some 'songs', like "Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking for Her Hand in the Snow)"

Yes, I do have that, in album form. I'm needing to convert it to my iPod some day...yes she is hideous. I don't mind my GF making that noise in the sack, but not on my music. ......Yoko improved over time...By the time Double Fantasy came out she had improved from hideous to just mildly annoying....

And she (at age 80!) remains "mildly annoying" with her current version of the Plastic Ono Band (with son Sean Lennon):

My husband knows Prudence Farrow, the subject of the song.

Oh Lord.... Letterman's comment at the end cracked me up! Something like "Isn't it great when the audience leaves humming the song?"

Some funny comments on youtube - the lyrics were "Stop the violence, Stop all wars." So one comment was "That performance could start a war!".

Revolution (both versions, but esp the edgy one) is one of my favorites, Revolution #9 is not...
