For me, it's a flip up between "Hey Jude" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXG83p2nkHw and "Imagine" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMrktcgAmcU

In a strange Beatles mood today. Must be the weather.

This will show My age, but I remember seeing the Beetles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Pop music changed that night. I think they did "I Wanna Hold Your Hand." When they returned to Ed Sullivan later on, I sat down excitedly to see and hear their next song. It was in their psychedelic period, and they were in a "video" sent from England, performing "Strawberry Fields Forever." Very psychedelic, with nighttime shots and piano wire in trees. Since I was still a little kid, I looked at My older sister and did a "wtf?"
I'd say My favorite song of theirs is "A Day In The Life". I love the 100 pianos they used, all at once, for the final chord.

"A day in the life" - great tune too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZez_k4vAzU

Not heard "While my guitar gently weeps" before C2c - thanks for that - tracked it down as well - not much you can't find on youtube these days: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7qpfGVUd8c

Btw, friends, did you know there's an online utility that will convert Youtube videos into MP3s? I've used it and it works well.

Tricky question. Norwegian Wood, Ticket to ride stick in my mind, but Eleanor Rigby probably takes it for me. "Imagine" was John Lennon only I think dontknow

You have read my mind roccotool, I was wondering how I could rip the music out of their videos for a while, but never looked into it fully.

"Ticket to ride".

Plow, you can also use it to convert it to an .avi file and keep it as your very own. I like to do that with concert/music vids, line 'em up in a playlist with My favorite player, and enjoy a whole personal "concert".

For me, it's "Let it Be" but the naked version, not the original. I know it's overplayed, but listening to that song is almost a religious experience for me.

'In My Life' is my favourite.

Closely followed by 'Don't Let Me Down'.

Too many to name.
Of their early stuff, I like "I saw her standing there"
Of their later stuff, I like "The Long and winding road"

God, there are so many and for so many different reasons. I remember watching them on Ed Sullivan, too. I'll have to say two - "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "In My Life".

I'm not sure I could pick a favorite album, much less song. The wife-unit, who attended the Beatles concert in Shea Stadium (upper level WAY behind third base--you can't miss her) back in '65, has always liked, Till There Was You. My fav from that concert was "Twist and Shout.

Can't name 1 great song, just too many of them. But this here has to be my greatest pic of the greatest band in music.

What a cop-out, Chuck! You think the rest of us only like one Beatles song? It was all I could do to not toss 20 out at once. Since you threw out the Abbey Road cover photo, give us one from that album.
