    I’d be here all day naming favourite Beatles songs and it would probably change every day. But a few that haven’t been mentioned yet.

    There was The Beatles and then there was everyone else.

    Tom Petty said that.

    I was just about to add my opinion when I saw that I actually started this thread. The worrying thing is that I completely disagree with the op. Strawberry Fields has always been my favourite Beatles song.

    United we stand here....

    Is Tierce a Hibby?

    I'm hoping he'll know somewhere to watch the Cup game in Picardie...
    Played twice under McLeish in the promotion season. Formed part of a formidable midfield with Fabrice Henry, Klaus Dietrich and Earl Jean at the spear of the diamond.

    Those were the days my friend.

    A ‘tierce de Picardie’ for those not classically trained, is where a piece of music performs in a minor key then resolves at the very end to a major key. The best example I can think of is the end of the Christmas carol “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” (separate thread needed for where the comma goes in the carol title, it is a contentious debate). It is essentially in a minor key but the last line resolves to a major key. Hard to describe but makes sense when you hear it.

    I am not actually convinced the cello part in Strawberry Fields verse two resolves from the minor to the major, so am open to some of our classical colleagues commenting - Peevemor or Caversham Green perhaps? It feels like it does but I’m not sure. I could download the score I guess but it feels like it shifts though maybe it just from one major key to another?

    Actually forget it. The greatest most groundbreaking band ever, with the best producer of the time. They're all great songs...well, maybe forget "yellow submarine" 😂😂😂😂

    For me it's in my life just listening to the words is like a story of my life even when they sing about that special someone. However it's really hard to choose like everyone else has said the back catalogue is vast with only a few exceptions

    I was voting for A Day in the Life but then started listening to Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.

    Quite the conundrum.

    The chemistry that existed for that short and precious time was as important to our country as Beethoven or Mozart was for Germany.

    The late Tom Petty said that there was The Beatles - and then there was everyone else.

    They really were extraordinary - for a while.

    Like Mr Hitler - Mozart was Austrian, they won't like you suggesting he was German, they really won't - the other guy they don't mind ...

    Just listened to the White Album again, so good, "Mother Nature's Son" but it all makes total sense neven though they all were moving in different directions they managed to still blend. For me, The Band meant more and I am a total Stones fan but the White Album is genius.

    I thought this would be coming, and maybe you have started it - a greatest Stones song thread

    In a way, that feels almost harder than a greatest Beatles song.

    And then after that, can we do Led Zeppelin, The Doors and Bob Dylan?

    Keep coming back to Moonlight Mile recently....just a great song in the winter when it’s cold and you’re driving, perfection.

    Hmmm I can see how this looks. Stones? Love them and have several favourites but maybe for another thread? Dylan Doors, The Band so much rich musical history. The Byrds have always been undervalued to me, such a good band anyways, back to The Beatles, still The White Album for me

    I think that 4 out of my top 5 Stones songs would be slow ones. If anyone wants to start a thread....

    I love every one of their songs but my favourite is ‘I Should Have Known Better’ from a Hard Day’s Night, my favourite Beatles album.
