Here are 20 best Beatles songs of all time…
Eleanor Rigby (Revolver 1966) — One of the best songs by The Beatles, Rigby is a slower song that tells the story of an old lonely woman. Is has some really great lyrics, and the way the song was constructed and played helps this one stand out on its own.
Strawberry Fields Forever (Magical Mystery Tour 1967) — This was one of the first songs to use a Mellotron, which was an early synthesizer that Lennon used for some cool sounds. Strawberry Fields was actually a song about an area where Lennon grew up, and he wanted to put down in words feelings that he had about it.
All You Need Is Love (Yellow Submarine 1967) — You could see this song as a Beatles attempt to infuse a nation at war with itself. A part of the Summer of Love (or maybe a catalyst), the song caught on quick, and was performed live on television before it even made it to an album.
Let It Be (Let It Be 1970) — Let It Be could be a statement about life, and what needs to be left behind in order for people to move on. Its a slow, beautiful song that Paul wrote about the loss of his mother, and ended up being one of the last hits that The Beatles would release.
Hey Jude (Hey Jude 1968) — Another one of their slower songs, this was an effort from Paul about Lennon’s son Julian. This song redefined what could be played on the radio, clocking in at 7 minutes and 11 seconds. Far longer than a normal single, and proving that listeners were willing to give songs of this length a chance on the radio. It is probably one of the best songs ever written.
I Am The Walrus (Magical Mystery Tour 1967) — If any song showed of their talent of writing while on drugs, you could point at this song. It is crazy, it makes no sense, and you can place as much meaning, or as little as you want, depending on your state of mind at the time. It is a fun song though, and another one of my favorites.

FORMED: 1960, Liverpool, England
Inspired by the “skiffle boom”, a student at Quarry Bank School in Liverpool named John Lennon decided to form a group in 1957 which laid the foundation to what was to become the most famous rock band of all time. John’s original name was “The Blackjacks”. However, this name only lasted a week and John used the school name as inspiration for the later name “The Quarry Men” in March 1957. John sang and played guitar, Colin Hanton played drums, Eric Griffiths on guitar, Pete Shotton on washboard, Rod Davis on banjo and Bill Smith on tea-chest bass. Bill was soon replaced by Ivan Vaughan.
John was inspired by “Heartbreak Hotel” and became a fan of American rock ‘n’ roll music. He introduced songs by Buddy Holly , Carl Perkins, The Coasters, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Gene Vincent into their repertoire. On July 6, 1957, Ivan Vaughan invited Paul McCartney to see their gig at The Woolton Parish Church Fete. The fifteen-year-old McCartney was introduce to sixteen-year-old Lennon and a unique song writing partnership began.
The line-up of The Quarry Men increased to seven with Paul on guitar and vocals, John Lowe on piano and George Harrison on guitar and vocals. Soon Griffiths and another member would leave, leaving a five-piece band. The group appeared at several local talent contests but had very few gigs. By January 1959, the group wasn’t operating. Although John and Paul kept in touch, George had joined the Les Stewart Quartet.
That might have been the end of The Quarry Men but they had a stroke of luck. The Les Stewart Quartet had been booked as a resident band at a new club called “The Casbah”. It was run by Mrs. Mona Best to support her son’s Pete and Rory. Stewart, upset because his guitarist Ken Brown help decorate the club, refused to play there. Ken and George walked out of the group and George contacted John and Paul, and The Quarry Men were reunited as a quartet. After about seven gigs at the club, Ken Brown left over a disagreement about money. From October 1959 to January 1960 John, Paul and George continued as a trio with Paul on drums. They called themselves “Johnny & the Moondogs”. Continue reading
