I read the top 5 after reading the bottom 5...and it's just terrible. He makes some good choices (I am the walrus at #2 though..? I would've put the medley there without a doubt), and a day in the life is fitting obviously for #1 but GOOD GOD MAN. PRETENTIOUSNESS JUST OOZES FROM HM. OH MY GOD.
This brilliant flourish, conceived by McCartney, is a marvel of shambolic grandeur that seems to mirror the entirety of the human race rushing to find a meaning to their existence. While we may have admired the pretty opening verses, for the first time in the song we are awake and alive.Whaaat? Ok, when i listen to A Day in the Life, i'm not thinking when the mad orchestra thing comes in.."wow, this just TOTALLY symoblizes the day to day routine we have, how 'grandeur' of Lennon! Mmm yes quite, indeed, yes then". And I doubt Lennon or Macca was either. That's just a ridiculously ridiculous comment. Also, pushing the boundaries of rock? That's a lofty claim, and I think that a lot of people make that claim with a lot of different songs. Care to explain how?“A Day In The Life” is a groundbreaking piece of work that shattered any pre-existing boundaries for what rock music could be.
Oh, I guess not. Do new artists in the 70s when they were composing really think "man, what we could do was so limited before A Day in the Life" came out, I'm glad there's this whole new musical frontier!" Maybe, maybe not. Certainly people were influenced by it, but I think saying that it shattered boundaries is...pretentious, like this whole article....

ARCTIC MONKEYS FULL DISCOGRAPHY PLEASE!!!!
Read the whole list, top to bottom. Took me the whole day, almost. Sure he comes off sounding pretentious and somewhat of a jerk (also a bit a Paul lover), but I have to say it's a well constructed piece. Regardless of the order of the songs or his opinions, the descriptions for each song were pretty good. I don't agree with a few of his selections in certain spots, but let's face it, try making a Beatles list from 185 to 1 and pleasing all Beatles fans across the world. Isn't easy, is it?
Terrible list. He was just using it as a way to voice his dislike over popular songs. Near the end he was like "Crap I forgot that I have to eventually say which songs I do like."
Worst can only mean "least amazing" in the context of The Beatles.
And nothing from Rubber Soul and on should be in this category ever.
And for whoever said he's just listing why he hates some of the Beatles songs and then should remind himself 'Oh I have to pick ones I like,' it's only the first 3 pages. It's a first or worst list. Even The Beatles aren't perfect.
In all seriousness, it's a good read if you have a day to kill. Don't knock it because (She's So Heavy) is listed so low (it isn't that great, sorry).
