Just goes on way too long for me.
Love Me Do
I'm sure there's worse, but "I Want to Hold Your Hand" comes to mind. Took me years to appreciate their earlier stuff, but I still can't swallow that one.
It's actually better in German.
All four listed above are legit contenders (as is "Yesterday", which has not aged well for me) but "Love Me Do" takes this prize for me (easily one of the 10 worst songs the Fabs ever Fabbed, IMO).
actually kind of happy they called it quits after that
"Free As A Bird"
Yep, me too. That long ending is dreadful.
I'm surprised that so many here are choosing their later stuff... some of those early singles are so mawkish. I try to put them in the context of the time, but... they don't all age well.
I always find that so interesting when I think back to how magical it seemed that,that super long coda went on for when it was a new record. I'm not saying that it still holds the very same "magic" today, but I can say that i haven't tired of it one single bit. At any rate...my least liked is From Me To You. By all means a solid hit record, well written good arrangement...but somehow it doesn't hold that same spark as any of the other early hits around it. Great modulation for the middle but the same chord pattern change was used to far greater effect in I Want To Hold Your Hand. I know...i talked too much here.....
Yes but it doesn't count. It was "after-the-fact" and not a true "The Beatles" recording
The lyrics for "Love Me Do" suck for sure... I kinda like the harmonica.
"Yellow Submarine" for me. Was "Ballad of John & Yoko" a hit? If so, that is a close second!
The Long And Winding Road (a #1 hit in the USA) --- because it was tampered with, and it was released in a version without Paul's full approval
Oh no, here we go again!
The plodding "Love Me Do".
Cheese and Onions
'The Ballad of John and Yoko' - it does nothing for me.
It has always made me feel impatient and uncomfortable... just like The Rockford Files did when I was a kid.
Eight Days A Week is the first one that comes to mind, then probably All You Need Is Love.
