Probably "Honey Pie" from the White Album.

My least favorite Beatles track is Revolution 9. In some ways, I don't even consider that a "song". Of all their released songs, I have never liked "Old Brown Shoe" and would say that is my least favorite.

#9 was not a song......................more of a listen for the stone heads.

One had to be in a certain state of mind to appreciate it.

Do you think Revolution 9 is backward masking "I buried Paul"?

I'd have to put "USSR" into one of my top favs of the Beatles, gotta love they worked the Beach Boys sound into it.

Oh well, to each their own! Enjoy! Woops, I mean go ahead and dislike it!

Have any of you folks watched the documentary How the Beatles Rocked the Kremlin? It "tells the extraordinary and untold story of how the Beatles punctured the Iron Curtain...and contributed to the fall of communism."

I love the part about "ribs": bootleg Beatle records made from medical X-ray film.

Yea, that's what I was thinking.... have to be in the right mood

I like all of the ones listed so far. I guess the only one that comes close to not being a favorite is "The Long and Winding Road" doesn't even sound like Beatles to me... something Frank Sinatra or Tony Bennett would sing.

I once had a bootleg recording of Paul singing accompanied solely by his piano. It sounded much better without the whole orchestra bit. (who knows where that record disappeared to?).

"Let It Be..Naked" released about 10 years ago, has a stripped down version of it without the orchestra. Paul redid this album to rid it of all the add ons he didn't like as the group didn't have much to do with the original album production as they were about to break up then. "Wings Over America" concert tour was recently released in DVD Bluray has a nice version too live, though it's with Wings.

Blame Phil Spector and his "wall of sound" for Let It Be...

George Harrison's single that came out in the 90's "I've Got my Mind Set on You". But let me say I liked his "My Sweet Lord" phase immensely. A lot of John Lennon's solo stuff was great, also, imho.

I spent many an hour playing Beatles albums backwards, and ruined a lot of good needles and LPs.

As I remember, the words "Number nine" in the song come out something like "Turn me on, dead man" when played backwards.

If memory serves, the clearest case of backwards masking on a Beatles record is the gibberish between "I'm So Tired" and "Blackbird" on the White Album. Played backwards it says, pretty clearly, "Paul is dead man, miss him, miss him, miss him."

BTW, is the White Album now the White CD? Or the White Playlist?

I know you're being somewhat playful, but it's still, informally, "The White Album"; as it's an album--a collection--of songs. Its format hasn't changed that moniker.
Officially, the name of the record (yes, record, as in shorthand for "recording"--whether wax, glass, vinyl or digital format) has always been The Beatles.

After listening to all 4 sides of the White Album while working out, I can say that it has at least 8 of my least favorite Beatle songs. Was it a "throw something together" album by them? The second side of Abbey Road has more great songs than all 4 sides of that album.

It wasn't necessarily a "throw something together" album. But producer George Martin did say that it would have been a fantastic single LP album, using only the better tracks. (Beatle fans to this day often debate which 12-14 tracks would comprise that great album.)

By then, mid-1968, The Beatles were beginning to no longer work as a team on a lot of stuff. John, Paul and George were coming in with essentially solo songs that they either worked on mostly alone (see Paul's "Mother Nature's Son" for example) or had some input from the others as "sidemen." This became even more painfully obvious with their next batch of recordings early in 1969, which became the album Let It Be--released over a year later. They just about broke up at that time--with all the acrimony.

But they decided to make one more go at writing and recording as a team again, resulting in Abbey Road. Then they broke up a few months later, in April 1970, after doing some late "clean up" work for Let It Be earlier that year.

Funny this thread would pop up today. I had the Beatles on my mind, because I caught an episode of "Petticoat Junction" yesterday where they were spoofing them.

I've always kind of been irritated by the Hey Jude type of song.....starts great....then repeats itself into oblivion.

There you go! I could complain about some obscure early tracks, or perhaps some of George's eastern influence stuff. But let me call out a big hit. It would be Hey Jude.

Conversely, I like just about everything on The White Album, even the throw away stuff.
