    I wonder if Dawgs people could come up with a great compilation. I have a few favourites, but my list would start with this...

    I meant top-selling hits. I'm one of those people who pretty much likes mostly all of the Beatles songs and not just the ones most people know. I might be a Beatles snob. :dontknow:

    Yes... When they start using other instruments that makes it. (Eddie Kramer: vibraphone)

    The cello & violin always get me.

    Any time at all
    Carl Perkins' songs: Everybody's trying to be my baby and Honey Don't
    I've just seen a face
    I'm looking through you
    Act Naturally
    She Said She Said
    Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite
    Blue Jay Way
    Honey Pie (especially the version on Anthology)
    Bungalow Bill
    Happiness is a warm gun mean mr mustard and Polythene pam partials on Anthology (the white album tracks sound so much better on Anthology - e.g. acoustic While my guitar gently weeps)
    Glass Onion
    Everyone loves The Medley, but Her Majesty is fucking awesome

    I think Help, Rubber Soul and Revolver is by far their best period

    The horns as well. I remember I told a girl in high school that I wrote this song because I wrote it on her bookcover. She found out later that it was a song on Revolver!
