  • I find it hard to believe any Beatles songs are underrated.

    'You Never Give Me Your Money' from Abbey Road

    "Rain". Great, hard-hitting drum intro, and a nice concluding looped backwards vocal by Lennon.

    great song but hardly underrated - it's pretty much got its due recognition of late

    I kinda agree with SP 1200. Or at least, with a band like this it seems like what some people might call underrated others might think of as obvious and appreciated. Anyway:

    Hey Bulldog
    Yes It Is
    She's A Woman
    I Don't Want To Spoil The Party

    and

    Considering how virtually every kid in the 60s had all of their albums and knew them front to back (and all released in what, a 7-year period?), I have to agree with the idea that there are no underrated Beatles songs. Now, The Stones, with their larger output over a much longer period???too long for anyone to have that same "I-was-young-the-whole-time-they-were-together-and-know-all-of-their-songs-by-heart-because-I'm young-and-listen-to-music-ad-nauseum" connection with the entire catalog???they could have some sleepers.

    Original version of the Roots Thought@Work had the Hey Bulldog intro sampled. Obviously cut from the LP version due to clearance issues but there is a promo 12" of it, well worth searching out.


    anyway.....Beatles....I'm Only Sleeping

    I would disagree. I think you're conflating underrated with obscure.

    The Beatles have a gang of songs that, while hugely popular, are mostly appreciated on one certain level: The Pop Gem, The Lovely Ballad, The Cool Experimental Piece, whatever. This doesn't preclude them from being underappreciated on other levels, though. Some of their best-known Pop Gems, for example, run a lot deeper--emotionally and conceptually--than they're given credit for.

    Take "She Loves You": fully rated and recognized as a canonical teen-steamer, but largely slept-upon as a remarkably sophisticated (for the pop charts and for 1963) slice of narrative from an unmistakably modern kind of companionable three-sided relationship--male lover+female lover+well-meaning male mutual friend--that kinda didn't really exist in pop before then. But it's mostly thought of as just a bopper. In this, I think it's underrated.

    Just because a certain track was a huge song from the goddamned Beatles (or from the goddamned Anybody), I think it's specious to say then that people have necessarily given said track its due.

    Yes! This track is one of my go to Beatles tracks. Unbelievable. Lost driving in the hills above LA, cloaked in fog, the car starts to hover three feet off the ground like Repo Man.

    Also have to second the mention of "I've Got A Feeling"... pure fire, for me it towers over the rest of the album. That riff, the way the tune builds on itself, the whole song just sounds inevitable. If I were compiling a single-disc Beatles compilation for somebody, this would have to close it.

    Yes. Right here.

    This is on some Top 10 overall Beatles shit. Hell, some Top 10 Songs Ever Written shit.

    This song is such a killer.

    George's compositions are pretty shit hot! While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Something aside here are some notable George songs that I love and feel don't get enough praise. Granted I don't hang with other Beatles enthusiasts to tell them my feeleengs.
