[Music] Happiness

My dad gave me a copy tonight of '1' -- which was, of course, immediately sucked into both iTunes and from there, my iPod.

The reason this is a cause for such happiness -- other than general 'yay, more Beatles in my iPod!' -- is that I now finally have a copy on something other than cassette tape of what is quite possibly my favorite Beatles song (and, for that matter, quite possibly one of my favorite songs of all time).

The answer to 'which song is that' is, of course, in the 'current music' field.


Hadn't thought about it too much, but possibly Rocky Raccoon, for the storytelling aspect of it.

Mine is a three way tie between Yesterday, Octopus's Garden, and Maxwell's Silver Hammer (yeah, the last one was obvious...)
Two of your three are definitely in my top 10, one of them is in my top five. But sorry, Rocky Raccoon doesn't even come close to taking the top spot from 'Let It Be.' :)
I tend to vote for obscure and vastly underrated songs like "I'm Looking Through You" and "Cry Baby Cry." But the truth is, "Revolution" has always been my #1.

...actually, that's not entirely true. When I first got into the Beatles, as a kid, I couldn't stop playing "Help!" over and over again. But I think I wore it out.
"Help!" is a great song for just bouncing around and singing along with; I really do like it. But again, it just doesn't come close to replacing 'Let It Be' for me. I can't even really articulate why that's probably my favorite song, but there's something about it that's always stood out.

But yes, "Cry Baby Cry" is vastly underrated. :(
"Let It Be" is lovely, it cannot be denied. The first time I watched the "Beatles Anthology" all the way through, I got to the end, where they're breaking up, and they played that song, and I cried.
As for me, when I got into the Beatles as a kid... my favorite album, hands down, was 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.' But which song was my favorite off of the album really changed from week to week. :)
It's "A Day In the Life" and then it's everything else, for me. :)
