Rolling Stone Names "A Day in the Life" the #1 Greatest Beatles Song

  • Print

Everybody's got a favorite BEATLES song -- or likely more than one -- but Rolling Stone has gone further, selecting the best 100 songs by the Fab Four.  The songs, along with photos and commentary, are featured in the new book The 100 Greatest Beatles Songs, which is officially released Friday.  You don't have to buy the book to learn their picks for the top ten, though -- Rolling Stone has already published them on their website.  Number one on their list is "A Day in the Life," from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.  The magazine calls the song "The ultimate Lennon-McCartney collaboration....It pairs lyrics inspired by the newspapers and Lennon's own life with McCartney's idea to have classical musicians perform what producer George Martin called an 'orchestral orgasm.'"

Here are Rolling Stone's picks for the top ten Beatles songs, in order:

1) "A Day in the Life"
2) "I Want to Hold Your Hand"
3) "Strawberry Fields Forever"
4) "Yesterday"
5) "In My Life"
6) "Something"
7) "Hey Jude"
8) "Let It Be"
9) "Come Together"
10) "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."
