'The Ballad of John and Yoko'
By Charles Curtis May 29, am. Indeed, in the United States, Beatles released Sgt. What qualifies me to do such a thing? What I am is a die-hard Beatles fan who grew up obsessed with the band, reading anything and everything I could find about the band while listening to the albums over and over. Anything that was released as a single, B-side or on an album is on this list. I spent the last few weeks re-listening to every cut and I tried my best to get rid of personal bias, but it was tough. I also tried to comment on my bottom 10 and top 20, with some thoughts in between. Is it supposed to be funny?

When EW ranked the 50 best Beatles songs ever in , there was yelling. There were tears. Read on for the complete list. But with one majestic, mysterious Rickenbacker distress call, the Beatles as we first met them on The Ed Sullivan Show four months earlier were gone.

I first heard of the Beatles when I was nine years old. I spent most of my holidays on Merseyside then, and a local girl gave me a bad publicity shot of them with their names scrawled on the back. The funny thing is that parents and all their friends from Liverpool were also curious and proud about this local group. Prior to that, the people in show business from the north of England had all been comedians. The Beatles even recorded for Parlophone, which was a comedy label, as if they believed they might be a passing novelty act. I was exactly the right age to be hit by them full-on.
