  1. “Happiness is a Warm Gun?” How’d that get on the list?

    If the slot needed to go to a Lennon song from the White Album, why not “Yer Blues,” “Revolution” (either version), “Julia,” “I’m So Tired,” or “Dear Prudence?” “Happiness is a Warm Gun” was just a cut or two above “Why Don’t We Do it in the Road?”

    I haven’t located this Mojo yet, but hopefully it’ll show up at Borders. But judging from the top ten, maybe my blood pressure can’t take it.

  2. Revolution No.1 would have my vote over Happines any day of the week. Kind of a weird pick there. I agree.

  3. No “Hey Jude” or “Eleanor Rigby”? Come on…

  4. Take a sad song and make it better…..maybe the song was too long to fit on that short list….HA HA HA HA

  5. Hey, Happiness Is A Warm Gun is in my top ten too. Great song. 🙂

  6. The later stuff was good – but the early stuff is what hooked me, especially:
    “I Should Have Known Better”
    “If I Fell”
    “Not A Second Time”
    and even a cover “Please Mister Postman”

  7. It is a great list, and lists are always fascinating, especially this one as each celeb gives his reasons and lists other Beatles songs that do it for them, too.
    Some of the big songs for me are And I love Her – surely one of the most gorgeous loves songs written, ever – timeless and to think it was written in 1964 – it sounds as fresh now as it ever did.
    Things We Said Today
    You Cant Do That
    I’ve Just Seen A Face
    This Boy

    to name but a few precious gems

  8. Did bot mention that these tracks I listed dont appear on the list, which is why i mention ’em!

  9. Did not mention that these tracks I listed dont appear on the list, which is why i mention ’em!

  10. wow. the top 3 are actually my 3 favorite beatles songs, in that same order too.
