A more interesting question might be, what is your least favourite Beatles song?

I guess that most people would go for Revolution #9 (I quite like it myself).

Apart from that?

Maybe Dizzy Miss Lizzy

It was listening to the Beatles that I learned how to sing harmony. Specifically, "If I Fell." The bottom part was WAY too low for me at 14 but I picked it out anyway.

I know they didn't write this one, but I always loved their recording of "Till There Was You."

I can't recall any that I didn't like.

However, . . .

"You've got to hide your love away" This was a cover of the song as originally done by a vocal quartet called "the Silky." The album had perhaps a dozen songs, at least ten of which were Dylan compositions, and the instrumental accompaniment credits were given to Lennon, McCartney and Harrison.

"Back in the USSR" and "Paperback Writer" were examples of the Boys' tendency to admire the competition by recreating a style. Try to imagine the Beach Boys singing the former and The Monkees singing the latter.
