"Hello Goodbye," except for the coda which I enjoy.
Is that Andy White's fault or Ringo's fault?
Fed Up (Parl0ph0ne R-3644)
It was so bad Lennon didn't remember it in Lennon Remembers, Paul McCartney denies it ever happened and it's not even in the canonical catalogue anymore.
The McCartney b-side MeToo is better, imagining a world where women are paid equally even if they're not allowed on Beatle records.
The record was a hit in Widnes, near Liverpool but when Dave Dexter demanded it be released as the follow-up to I Want to Hold Your Hand, Brian Epstein didn't return his call.
Both/neither. It needed a bit of the chemical assistance they were notorious for in Hamburg!
"Yellow Submarine." It sinks to the bottom, resting awkwardly next to the octopus's garden.
I don't know if there's one particular least favorite; I don't consciously rank songs very precisely. But there are a few US and UK hits that don't do much for me:
Love Me Do
Do You Want To Know A Secret
From Me To You
Can't Buy Me Love
She's A Woman
All You Need Is Love
The Ballad Of John And Yoko
I like the untampered film version (on ...Naked and 1) much better than the overdubbed version (or the Anthology 3 mix of the raw album take).
Nothing like Prelly to give it some welly...
The Long & Winding Road (I don't care for any version of this song)
Hey Jude by a country mile,lumpy production and trite lyrics,McCartney at his worst plus if anybody sings at karaoke everybody has to sing the na nas for about 10 minutes afterwards.
Easily From Me To You.
slightly pandering quality to it that sours it.
Making a pop song 8 minutes long isn't a good idea when the song is hardly working with anything to start with.
When Macca does it live it's not too bad.
"Hey Jude" because of the never ending ending.
Yesterday all the way.
Weird retro sound, sounds more like novelty track.
Easy one: The Long And Winding (boring) Road.
Along with "Don't Pass Me By"..... Alas poor Ringo we knew you well..
I checked on Wikipedia... "Yellow Submarine" wasn't only a hit, but a HUGE hit, reaching #1 in the UK and #2 in the U.S.!
I don't hate the song, but that's indeed a head-scratcher...
I actually like "Yellow Submarine".
Obviously not among the Fabs' top tier, but it's a fun little ditty (I especially like Lennon's spoken stuff and the sound-effects late in the song).
As to why it was a hit, perhaps it had been a while since the Fabs had released a single (?)... fans were mad for anything by them if it had been a while since something was released.
Let It Be.
My opinion about Hey Jude, only better expressed. Thanks, Pete.
Hello Goodbye is my pick, but that’s like saying of all my favourite desserts chocolate cake is my least favourite.
I love chocolate cake.
