There are way too many but most people havent heard Tommorow Never Knows, She Said She Said, Within You Without You, Helter Skelter, or Across The Universe, but I like everything the Beatles did.

Even Wild Honey Pie and Her Majesty?

her majest is a very good bit, its just incredibly short. wild honey pie is rather stupid, but even that has redeeming qualities, plus that little instrumental fooling around at the end. i couldn't tell you what a non-popular beatles song is because i overplay them all. also i know different people and radio stations than you guys...somebody said "accross the universe" for example, while i would never consider that unpopular. somebody else mentioned michelle...that song won a grammy for song of the year. so yeah, the beatles are just insanely popular. and by insanely i mean sanely, since i think they deserve it.

hey sandwich man, what does that russian mean in your profile? i know russian, and yet i can't understand the word. does it mean something along the lines of destruction.

I actually love Her Majesty. There's something so quintessentially Beatles about it that I find it impossible not to adore. As for Wild Honey Pie, it is out there, but what would The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill be like without that leading in?

I think bungalow bill is odder than wild honey pie, because it has a story that doesnt amke sense, unlike "HONEY PIEEE!!! HONEY PIEEEE!!!!"

in my humble opinion...i'd say the whole Rubber Soul album is underrated.

Yep, it's pretty well over-shadowed by Revolver. It's got "What Goes on," "Michelle," "Drive my Car" and "Norwegian Wood." I'd say it was one of their best.

helter skelter-got a lot of energy and passion
michelle-it's got that hopelessly romantic sound to it
in my life- that one's fairly popuar though

the beatles didnt really produce any "filler songs" to fill up an album
every song was basically high quality and original

It's semi-popular, but i think it's the best song by far on Hard Day's Night.

Even Wild Honey Pie and Her Majesty?
Her Majesty owns!!! :eek:

and Wild Honey Pie has that SWEET spanish-guitar sounding lick at the end (anyone care to tab it maybe please?)

I like everything they did except maybe a couple songs off Please Please Me and With The Beatles
I'm Only Sleeping. The Beatles song in my mind

Also, Happiness is a Warm Gun. :cool:
I especially love those two

Isn't I'm Only Sleeping a post-Beatles Lennon song? I'm not sure, correct me if I'm wrong...
I love Day in the Life. Such a cool song. Me and my bassist friend play it all the time, even the big swelling part. it's not that hard, just take this Bm voicing x2443x, and move it up the neck a semitone at a time while droning both E strings and end on a big open E chord. Ob-la-di Ob-la-da is of course awesome (sounds better with 3rd fret capoed G chord shape than barred Bb chord in my opinion), and Nowhere Man, and Taxman. Stevie Ray Vaughn made a really hot cover of Taxman.

There are so many songs that get ignored that I love that i'd be listing for hours, but heres some:

Misery
Ask Me Why; great harmonies
P.S. I Love You
Do You Want to Know a Secret
I Should Have Known Better
If I Fell
I'm Happy Just to Dance With You
Any Time at All; awesome song
I'll Cry Instead
When I Get Home
You Can't Do That
I'll Be Back; i love the minor sounding verses juxtaposed against the happier choruses
The Fool on the Hill
Your Mother Should Know
The entire "Beatles for Sale" besides Eight Days a Week
Getting Better
Sun King
You Never Give Me Your Money; great solo and buildup at 2:00

etc etc.

Edit: looking back I kinda went overboard.... sorry. haha

At first i really didn't like the beatles early work, but now im getting to like more of it, i really like "I'll follow the sun" from the beatles for sale album, "she's a woman", "your mother should know" from magical mystery tour, '"i saw her standing there", "P.S. I love you", and for wierds ones i love "happieness is a warm gun", "a day in the life", and "Piggies"
