10. Fixing a Hole

“An interesting song, though not one of my favorites. Enjoyable guitar and lyrically interesting. Equally influential seems the rickity-tickity of “Fixing a Hole” which utilizes McCartney’s fondness of clever Marijuana psuedo’s into lyrics as well as the first indications of baroque charisma.”

9. Lovely Rita

“McCartney rescues the fazed listeners however with the seductive trances of the psychedelic pop flavoured “Lovely Rita”. Through a concoction of lustful thoughts and LSD McCartney delivers an anonymous journey from the streets to the bedroom to the heavenly heights of sexual exploration. “

8. Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite

“This is yet another Beatles song that has went under the radar since the 60’s. I love the effects, it has a pretty cool story behind how John came to write the song, and the music itself is great.”

7. When I’m Sixty-Four

“A simple pop song, possibly, but this is a very enjoyable track. Some do not like this track, but I enjoy the vocal performance thoroughly.. This song puts to music the beauty of the life-long commitment of a man and a woman in marriage.”

6. Getting Better

“Getting Better” is another bright McCartney rocker, augmented by a stuttering rhythm track and Lennon’s dark addendum that “it can. A very catchy track. Another song with a very enjoyable vocal performance.”

5. With a Little Help from My Friends

“With a little help with my friends is so under rated, it is a track sung by the one and only Ringo Starr. Quite frankly I love this track so much. He had a cool voice, it was ashame he did not get to sing as much with the Beatles. “

4. She’s Leaving Home

“This was based on a newspaper story Paul McCartney read about a runaway girl. On February 27th, 1967 the London Daily Mail’s headline read: “A-level girl dumps car and vanishes.” That girl was 17-year-old Melanie Coe, who had ran away from home leaving everything behind. Her father was quoted as saying, “I cannot imagine why she should run away, she has everything here.” McCartney said in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, “We’d seen that story and it was my inspiration.”

3. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band/ With A Little Help From My Friends

“After recording this, Paul McCartney had the idea of doing the whole album as if Sgt. Pepper was a real band. It became the title track of what was considered a “Concept” album, with the songs running seamlessly together on the record. The album was heavily produced and took 129 days and about 700 hours to complete”

2. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

“A classic track. This song provides the listener with excellent imagery. A very “trippy” song all around. One of my favorites from the album.”

1. A Day in the Life

“The Beatles best song. The whole album just builds to this point- the climax. This song is simply great. I like the drum performance, it is simple but works perfectly with the song. The vocal performance is interesting. The change of pace in the song is welcoming and the transition is great.”
