Wednesday 11th Nov. at 8pm, ITV1. Seems they're including the 27 No'1's that they had in the UK and US.

What do you think will be voted No.1? I'll go for Hey Jude.

I'd guess the public would go for Hey Jude. I'd probably go Paperback Writer myself.

Hey Jude and Let It Be are the biggest regular sellers so presume they will be 1 and 2. Hey Jude started off my chart obsession when it hit the UK number one, so that's my preferred choice, though Eleanor Rigby is SO gorgeous I'd be happy with that one.

Whilst Yesterday was not a UK No.1 it was a US No.1 and on the album 1 so should be included in the list. My TV guide says "their UK and US 27 No.1's"

My favourite is a song that I used to dislike for a long long time (well not dislike but it certainly wasn't my favourite) and that's The Long and Winding Road (it obviously won't come anywhere in the vote). Having said that - its more like a solo song so I'm not sure it deserves to be called a Beatles song. With that in mind - I'll go for either Paperback Writer or Hello Goodbye!

So many of today's mainstay classics are Beatles songs, they're amazing!

Is Twist and Shout an original Beatles song or a cover?

I think The Isley Brothers were the first to have a hit with it.

Beatles version of Twist & Shout is the definitive version imo. A group called the Top Notes were the first to record it, co- written by Bert Bern's who wrote & produced a lot of the classic soul & R&B songs of the era.

So glad The Long and Winding Road got a look-in. Didn't think it would make it.

4. Eleanor Rigby

5. All You Need Is Love

6. Penny Lane

7. I Want To Hold Your Hand

8. The Long and Winding Road

10. She Loves You

11. Come Together

12. Something

13. Canít Buy Me Love

14. Love Me Do

15. Help!

16. Ticket To Ride

17. We Can Work It Out

18. Eight Days A Week

19. Yellow Submarine

20. Hello, Goodbye

21. Lady Madonna

22. Get Back

23. Paperback Writer

24. From Me To You

25. I Feel Fine

26. Day Tripper

27. The Ballad of John and Yoko


very much the wrong order for me! Bizarrely tracks that in the 70's were the biggest selling reissues, like Get Back and Paperback Writer, not to mention fab tracks like Ballad Of John & Yoko Day trpper, I Feel Fine all way down the list and their earlier stuff is way high. I would have placed Come Together or Yellow Submarine at the bottom end along with early stuff like From Me To You, She Loves You...

Really weird order, I agree it would look better reversed. Can't work out why Eight Days a Week is higher than many behind it either...at least I know why the boring nation went for some of the boring tracks at the top.

Ah well, it don't matter...

I like Ballad Of John And Yoko too and should have been much higher.

My favs though are all album tracks, A Day In The Life, Here There And Everywhere and In My Life.

Surprised She Loves You was so high up, although it is their biggest seller its not really that good imo. Agreed that Day-tripper and Ballad Of John & Yoko should have been higher -

Caught up with this now! As hugely predictable a winner 'Hey Jude' is, it still remains fantastic to this day so I was glad to see it win. A pleasing finish for 'Eleanor Rigby' also!
