Great list! Thanks!

...but where's "Girl"?

Re: What are the 101 Fabbest Fab tracks?

Can't believe 'Within You Without You' hasn't made it. Nevermind. My current top 10 Beatles tracks are :

10. Revolution #9
9. Nowhere Man
8. Dear Prudence
7. Come Together
6. Back In The USSR
5. A Day In The Life
4. Taxman
3. Eleanor Rigby
2. Tomorrow Never Knows
1. Helter Skelter

Re: What are the 101 Fabbest Fab tracks?

Henrik, would this new list push any new Beatles songs into the Top 2500?

I was curious to see which songs may enter the list, and here are some possibilities, listed below (all titles on the list currently not included in AM's 2500). Are any of them likely to make Acclaimed Music's list soon?

Re: What are the 101 Fabbest Fab tracks?

Except for Dylan, who's also recently had this Mojo treatment (& which was included), i think it's actually unfair on most other artists to include this list since most other artists haven't & never will have it.

Re: What are the 101 Fabbest Fab tracks?

...saying that i guess Dylan & the Beatles suffer by not being on any best song end of year lists (at least, 'cos we don't have them).

Re: What are the 101 Fabbest Fab tracks?

...but isn't that still little compensation for the far more all time lists they've already had the advantage of having been on, compared to most other artists ?

Re: What are the 101 Fabbest Fab tracks?

Tommorow Never Knows should hav been #1 on that Mojo list. Strawberry Fields Forever should have been no higher than #5. And what the hell was Ob-La-Di,Ob-La-Da doing on there?

Songs by all other artists will be blanked when I include this list. So another Beatles list will on the whole not be in a lot of favor for them. Some Beatles songs will move up, some will move down and all the other songs will stay where they are.

Re: What are the 101 Fabbest Fab tracks?

My Fab4 top 10 is actually:

1. A Day In The Life
2. Eleanor Rigby
3. Strawberry Fields Forever
4. Sexy Sadie
5. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
6. For No One
7. The Long And Winding Road
8. Yesterday
9. The Fool On The Hill
10.And Your Bird Can Sing

I am so happy that "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" is in the Top 10. Amazing song that you don't hear too much of.
