Little Steven picks his top 11 Beatles songs

It looks like LIttle Steven is more of an “early fan” than a psychedelic one.  I can’t say that I argue with him, although my mood changes like the wind.  I would argue that a White Album track, and A Day in the Life almost always fall under my personal favorites, but who am I to argue with a rock legend?

Kind of a weird favorites list.  So, to stay in that spirit of things, and because we haven’t had a poll around here in a few days.

What are your top-eleven favorite Beatle tracks at the moment, because eleven is one higher than ten?
(Let us know in the comments below.) 

Right now, my top-eleven Beatle songs (in no particular order) looks something like this.

1. A Day in the Life
2. ‘Till There Was You
3. Hey Bulldog
4. Leave My Kitten All Alone
5. Yes It Is
6.  I Feel Fine
7. Day Tripper
8. Tomorrow Never Knows
9. I’m Looking Through You
10. Sgt. Pepper
11. Don’t Let Me Down

(A lot of these tracks are mid-era Beatles.  I have been fascinated with the sound of their Epiphone Casinos.  I just recently got one for my birthday from my wonderful wife!)

This list changes with the wind people.  Seriously, it could change by early this evening.  You know how it is.

Here’s what we’ve read.

Little Steven Van Zandt from Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band, The Sopranos and Little Steven’s Underground Garage appeared live with Chris Carter last Sunday on Breakfast with the Beatles on KLOS in Los Angeles, and Chris allowed him to spin his Top 11 Beatles songs, which were:

From Me to you
It won’t be long
Please Mr. Postman
Don’t bother me
I feel fine
Anytime at all
8 days a week
Every little thing
Night before
You’re going to lose that girl
I’m Down

Chris said this show was by far the most enjoyable time he’s ever had on Los Angeles radio since he started over a decade ago. Little Steven was witty, profound, musically educated and most of all just a down to earth great guy. His knowledge for Beatles history and all things “cool” in Rock’n’Roll seemed never ending.

Bruce & The E Streeter’s are in town to give two shows at the LA Sports Arena and also stopped by KLOS to host Little Steven’s Underground Garage, which is heard Sunday nights at 10 p.m. on KLOS.

Breakfast with the Beatles now on KLOS is America ‘s longest running Beatles show and Southern California ‘s No. 1 rated Beatles show. Breakfast with the Beatles and the music of the Fab Four have greeted Los Angelinos’ Sunday mornings for more than 20 years. The show is informative, biographical, and filled with Beatles (and solo Beatle) music that ranges from the ultra familiar to the ultra rare. Breakfast with the Beatles airs at 9 a.m. every Sunday morning at KLOS 95.5 FM.

  1. Good list. Little Steven seems like a cool guy. His underground garage radio show is really good.

    Still, I wouldn’t call “Don’t Let Me Down” a mid-era song.

  2. 1) In My Life
    2) Here Comes the Sun
    3) Help
    4) Tomorrow Never Knows
    5) Let It Be
    6) Within You Without You
    7) Hello Goodbye
    8) Octopus’s Garden
    9) Taxman
    10) Love You To
    11) Drive My Car

    (I could probably get rid of Drive My Car and replace it with something more musically serious and important, etc., but it’s got COWBELL!)

  3. I can only think of one at the moment-and your bird can sing.

  4. […] eleven and not twelve or ten or nine? I dunno. Just because, I guess. I got it from a blog I read, I read the news today: All Beatle news (yes, I read a Beatles blog, are you really that surprised?). So I sat down and did a quick and […]
