Help me understand The Beatles!

Spotify doesn't have any listings of any of their "good stuff"

Recommend me some of their best stuff?

I hear about how amazing they were and want to know what they mean.

these are my favorites

Oh Darling
Can't Buy Me Love
A Hard Days Night
Hello Goodbye
Elanor Rigby
when i'm 64

Obviously not the most modern sound, it was 50 years ago, but their music theory is top notch. I've also found a good sound playing their music more bluesy than poppy.

I was a big Beatles fan when I was six years old and most likely because a six year old would be carried away with the trends of the day if exposed to them whatever they might be.

Anyway, my dad had two tickets for he and I to see them at Fulton County Stadium on August 18, 1965, during their 1965 tour. As a six year old I was also swayed by events of the moment which, just an hour before the concert involved my soon to be step-brother and I playing with my Tonka Toy trucks. When it came time to leave for the concert I decided I'd rather continue playing with the Tonka Toys.

I had this particular car carrier except mine was yellow with the red and yellow corvettes that it hauled among other Tonka products.

I can remember my dad leaving to go sell the tickets and my thoughts of wanting to go after all upon his departing the house and making the trip to sell the tickets. He apparently had no trouble selling them as he was back within 15 minutes.

I can remember those moments surrounding the events I've described above just like I'm watching them on a movie screen. They are just that vivid. One of those memories that is forever etched upon my mind, and one of which I can't help but wonder what might have been had I seen the Beatles in concert and the possible influence it would have had on me musically thereafter.

Many, many years later I did catch Ringo Starr and His All Star Band in Biloxi, Mississippi. We even made eye contact for a few seconds that resulted in this photograph. He, and the rest of the band who are top artists in their own right, put on a great show.

In my opinion the albums Rubber Soul, Revolver, and Sergent Pepper's are probably their greatest works (also a big fan of Magical Mystery Tour). The range in styles contained in these albums are enormous. Songs can range from deep emotional ballads (In My Life, Elanor Rigby, A Day in the Life) to catchy rock classics (The Word, With a Little Help From my Friends, Drive my Car) to great folksy tunes (Nowhere Man, Norwegian Wood) all the way to full blown psychedelia (Love You Too, She Said She Said, Tomorrow Never Knows, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, I Am the Walrus).

The thing that makes the Beatles awesome is they do all these genres so well. They use so many interesting instruments in their songs. Did you hear any sitars and tamburas in Western Rock and Roll before this? If anybody is a big Beatles fan and has not seen the Beatles Anthology Documentary Series I highly recommend it.
