De 100 største Beatles-sange

21. september 2011

"My absolute favorite albums are Rubber Soul and Revolver. On both records you can hear references to other music — R&B, Dylan, psychedelia — but it’s not done in a way that is obvious or dates the records. When you picked up Revolver, you knew it was something different. Heck, they are wearing sunglasses indoors in the picture on the back of the cover and not even looking at the camera . . . and the music was so strange and yet so vivid. If I had to pick a favorite song from those albums, it would be "And Your Bird Can Sing" . . . no, "Girl" . . . no, "For No One" . . . and so on, and so on. . . ."

Tidsskriftet Rolling Stone har oplistet de 100 største Beatles-sangen og har ladet Elvis Costello skrive en indledning.

Sådan ser det første 10 ud:

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’

– og så kan debatten begynde. Er Strawberry Fields Forever en større sang end Yesterday? Er I want to hold your hand større end She Loves You?
