Depends when you ask!

Right now I really like She's Leaving Home. We have 2 grown daughters now married and living their own lives in far flung places, and while we are still very close I miss them mightily.

I have XM radio. The Beatles channel is one I listen to every day, without fail.

Early Beatles: "And I Love Her"

Late Beatles: "Don't Let Me Down" (the version done on the rooftop in Let it Be)

Strawberry Fields Forever

It isn't even my favourite Beatles song but the chord changes of it have just seeped into my DNA. I just found it totally fascinating as a kid (well, the whole Sgt Pepper album really, but that song in particular). My whole life I have been a sucker for "descending semi-tone" chord changes (for want of a better description). That Mellotron sound too... and the notes played on the dividing sitar riff is a great introduction to whatever mode that is (can never remember the names of modes!)

Today, it’s “she said she said “ & ‘In my life”.

Both tunes can wake me in the middle of the night...so good. Dare I say there will never be another like them.

I heard someone say that 100 years from now parents will be singing Beatle songs putting their kids to sleep.

I do remember watching their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show... vaguely, but I have never been a huge Beatles fan. I don't turn their songs off when they come on the radio, but they, for the most part, just don't move me.

I can, and do, appreciate their talent and recognize the impact they'eve had on music.

That being said, I have no idea what era, or eras these songs come from, but I do really enjoy:

Come Together and Nowhere Man, I mean these two songs may wind up on the playlist I leave behind that will be played at my wake.

Interesting comment. I remember when I first heard it and being quite shocked. Even after Revolver, it seemed very strange - the sort of thing I couldn't imagine playing on guitar because it sounded as if they were using chords and chord changes they'd invented that ordinary people like me didn't know about. I wasn't sure I 'liked' it at first, but there was always something fascinating about it that kept me going back for 'one more listen', and before long it just worked its way into my brain as a masterpiece.

Is there any love out there for Free as a bird? I know the general critical response to it was disappointment - that it sounded like a fatigued 'ELO play the Beatles' fabrication. But I never saw it like that. Ringo said, 'It sounds like them - because it IS them', and that's how it sounds to me, too. And the video that accompanied it seems like a tear-jerking Beatle-celebratory masterpiece.
Am I alone in this?

I really do like the song a lot but...
I have to agree with the critics on this one. Jeff Lynne's over-produced hands are all over this. I am not a fan of his style, too manufactured for me.
