Music Monday: The Greatest Band Ever- Part I

I'm hoping that title got your attention.  :)

I'm sure we all have our own opinions on what band just might be the greatest band ever, but for me there is, and always has been only one....

The Beatles

I've always loved the music of the 60's.  My cousin and I are still convinced that we grew up in the wrong era.  We love oldies from the 50's, 60's, and 70's.  Granted, I do generally enjoy most music across many, many genres.  But there's just something about the 60's, and especially The Beatles that I just really love.

When I originally sat down to write this post, I wanted to do a Top 5.  This proved impossible because even upon being extremely  picky about which songs I chose, I still had 24.  SO, I decided to do a Top 10.  Today will be the bottom 5 songs of my Top 10 Favorite Beatles songs of all time!  (NOTE:  I still had to eliminate 14 songs from my list.  Torture.)

10. "Hello, Goodbye" from The Magical Mystery Tour 

9. "Do You Want to Know a Secret" from Please Please Me

8. "I'll Follow the Sun" from Beatles for Sale

7. "All You Need is Love" from The Magical Mystery Tour

6. "Girl" from Rubber Soul

I'll be honest, I'm still not convinced that this is the right order!  Stayed tuned next week for my TOP 5 Beatles songs, and a list of the honorable mentions that didn't make my TOP 10 (after putting myself in extreme duress....).

Are any of these in your Top 10??

Allow me to start off by saying, yes the title did grab my attention. When I read the little box on fb, it doesn't show your answer. I answered it by saying, "The Beatles, duh!" Of course, I was right. As I read (listened) to this blog entry, all I could think of was, "How did she pick just 10?" I saw what I guess would be number 10 and I was like, "what! that's the bottom?" as I continued on my tour I would catch myself saying "yeah. I like that one a lot too" I laughed out loud when you stated that still were not sure if you had them in the correct order and that you had put yourself under extreme duress. I can totally understand how that would happen. I love these blog entries.

I have never been super into the Beatles, I'm not even sure if I would recognize all these songs! Obviously they were/are super popular, though! :-)
