      Readers react to the ranking of the Beatles’ best songs

        I love this statement:

        "I would challenge the most ardent fan of any other rock or pop singer/group to even list 180 songs by their favorite artist.”

          There have been so many polls of the Beatles' greatest songs and they are, of course, wide ranging.  I remember seeing one poll where they had "Here, There and Everywhere" somewhere in the 80's as far as ranking.  I just shook my head.  I would definitely have Here, There and Everywhere in the Beatles' top 10.  It's my favorite Paul/Beatle song of all time.  I like it a little better than Yesterday, Hey Jude,  Let It Be and a few others of Paul's Greatest hits as a Beatle.  It's just a perfect song from a standpoint of melody and lyrics.

            Totally agree!! 👍
