The Beatles: My 50 -- make that 52! -- Favorite Songs

52!!!  I was asked to do 50 but 52 is a good number and I don't need to add or take out anything. It's roughly chronological as I went back and forth between the singles and the albums. I love all the songs NOT on this list, believe me. Yes, I will heartily sing along with Hey Jude and Let It Be. I love 'em. I just didn't feel the need to include them here. 

Yours in music,


*my favorite of them all
