The Beatles - Top Ten Non #1s
Ok last Friday I posted a video and promised to list the best of the Beatles tunes that did not hit #1. This has proven to be a difficult exercise for me because there are so many songs that I like. The criteria was fairly simple: The song had to be performed by the Beatles and could not have have been included in 27 number 1 songs on the CD The Beatles 1. So I have collected my CDs, surfed YouTube, and jammed. One is struck by the breadth, development and (in my opinion) the quality of the music that in a few short years changed everything. So with these words I will list my the Stoned-Campbell Top Ten Non #1 Beatles songs ... Click on each title for a video on YouTube for that song ...
10) Please, Mr. Postman (cheezy I know)
9) Here Comes the Sun
8) Helter Skelter
7) While My Guitar Gently Weeps
6) Don't Let Me Down
5) Taxman (creative video by high school kids)
4) A Day in the Life (Mick Jagger makes an appearance)
1) Strawberry Fields Forever
How would your Top Ten Non #1 look? Nearly the same? Radically different?
