A labor of love

Check this out: All 213 Beatles Songs, Ranked From Worst to Best: We had to count them all.

The author of the post, Bill Wyman, says: “It turns out that ranking the songs recorded by the Beatles in the 1960s is easy; you put the worst one at the top, and the best one at the bottom.” Heh. Well, I didn’t realize that this was the 50th anniversary of the release of “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” but that does explain why I’ve been seeing a few more Beatles references than usual. Also why Sirius XM just added a Beatles station to their list.

Anyway, I am far, far from an expert on the Beatles. But I am amused by this attempt to rank more than 200 songs from worst to best. In case you are interested, but not enough to click through, I will tell you that Wyman ranks “Good Day Sunshine” as the worst and “A Day in the Life” as the best.

If you are interested enough to click through, Wyman has included comments about each entry, plus links and some embedded videos. The biggest surprise to me is how many song titles I immediately recognize, that instantly call up up the song for me. I don’t have a very good memory for songs or song titles and had no idea so many Beatles songs had imprinted themselves on my brain.
