Getting Better
Fixing A Hole
Being The Benefit Of Mr. Kite
When I'm Sixty-Four

3rd Favorite. Or 4th favorite with the 2 parts. LOL.

When I was growing up my friends would either choose Revolver or Rubber Soul as their favorite Beatles album. By the time we graduated high school, Abbey Road was the album of choice for them. I personally have always preferred the White Album.

It may not be all that consistent musically, but I think every track (with the exception of Penny Lane. **** you, Penny Lane) on there is fantastic. She's Leaving Home and Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite are the only ones that stand up to most of the tracks on MMT imo. A Day In the Life is great as well but except for the end bit, it doesn't quite get up to that level for me.

Funny, I think those 3 are the *least* good songs on the album. Especially Rita, which IMO is the only truly disposable song on the album.

Getting Better and Fixing a Hole are two of my favorites on the album. I also really like Sixty-Four, even though it's not a terribly serious song - but, the change of mood is one reason it fits so great on the album. Also, the bridge totally "makes" that song IMO ("You'll be older too"). Good Morning and Mr Kite are good songs but not standouts, so I'll agree with you on those.

As for the best Beatles albums, it's pretty much a 3-way tie between Rubber Soul, Revolver and Sgt Pepper, but I'd give a very slight edge to Rubber Soul.

In fact, now that I think of it, if you asked me to name my favorite song on the album, I think I'd name Getting Better.

And like Sixty-Four, the bridge is magnificent.

I used to be cruel to my woman I'd beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved
Man I was mean but I'm changing my scene and I'm doing the best that I can


Makes me choke up a bit, actually.

Fixing a hole is so not forgettable. Although I have had some killer times on that record. So I love it. But it is in no way shape or form my favorite. And Getting Better is amazing. It's catchy, and lyrically quite deep in the universally relateable way that makes the Beatles one of the greatest bands in history.

Edit: I think I misread you. Heh oops.

I do not think Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band is the best Beatles album. It IS a great album, and was the 1st Beatles album I ever heard. I just think it gets a little overrated for what it is.

The songs vary from some of my favorites to some that I forget.

Lonely Rita

^ These songs are just fantastic. I can always listen to those.


FORGETTABLE
--------------

Getting Better
Fixing A Hole
Being The Benefit Of Mr. Kite
When I'm Sixty-Four
Good Morning

^ These songs I just don't think are memorable.

What about "With A Little Help From My Friends, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, & A Day In The Life?"

Those songs are great, yet are overplayed.


The songs are great, I just hear them SO much that it kind of wares off in the end. Again, they are not bad. I just think they get way too much radio play.


What are my favorite albums by The Beatles?
(Get Ready... I might get someone mad)


Revolver And Rubber Soul


Revolver and Rubber Soul barely have any songs that radio plays. Probably the most I hear on the radio are Norwegian Wood, Yellow Submarine, Taxman, and Eleanor Rigby.

These albums are overlooked by a lot of people. A lot of songs may be forgettable to some but that is their own opinion. Just like this list.


Again, this is all opinion. Leave your opinions below.
Clearly if you think a song like Fixing A Hole is forgettable along with all the others this may be why you are having problems thinking this album is their best, or one of them. In my opinion the album must be listened to as a entire piece of work to get what the Beatles were trying to accomplish here......We could debate for moths or years for that matter the good and bad of this album, but in the long run I believe the entire album is a masterpiece.

You're out of your marbles saying Getting Better Fixing A Hole Being The Benefit Of Mr. Kite and When I'm Sixty-Four are forgettable. Those songs are some of the Beatles best songs, especially When I'm Sixty-Four.

Weird. I love the album and I always considered 64 to be kind of a filler track.
