Yeah, it's easy to take them for granted since their songs are so ingrained in pop culture, it feels like they've always existed. It's good to remember that four real guys created all this stuff in about a 10 year span. I heard some Stanford academic panel on the Beatles awhile back, and one thing I remember some prof said is that their songs -- particularly the mid- and late-period ones -- have like 5 or 6 themes rolled into each song. "Day in the Life" probably has 8 or 9 mini-songs within just that one song. Impressive.

I also admire their canny ability to be smart and funny and visually-minded as well as musical.

my top 3

+1

HELP! is such a great film, and I really love John singing You've Got to Hide Your Love Away in it.

I'd add Here There and Everwhere to the list.

For you Beatle fans who plan to be in Vegas any time soon, go see LOVE. Yes, it's Cirque du Soleil. But it's beyond brilliant. The way they remix and reuse the music to tell the story is insane.

I'm also extremely partial to All You Need is Love. It makes me happy.

I forgot to add Paperback Writer for its purposely silly playfulness.

No love for Rocky Raccoon? +1 on Yellow Submarine. Hell, +1 on all the Ringo songs. He's a bad mutherfucka.

Norwegian Wood is my favorite song with very little competition.

Come Together, Here Comes the Sun, She Loves You, Drive my Car.

Norwegian Wood is an amazing song. One of the best ever.
