Love them or hate them I know you like at least five of their songs.
I've Got a Feeling
Here, There, and Everywhere

The Fool on the Hill
Keep in mind that it was really difficult to narrow my selections down to five. I had to leave out some honorable mentions, including:
>I Am the Walrus
>I'm Only Sleeping
>Got to Get You Into My Life
>Almost all of their earlier catalogue
Actually Sour Milk Sea was recorded. It appears as a bonus track on a counterfeit mono version of "The White Album". It's not really a good version, but it IS a good song nonetheless. I'm surprised The Beatles didn't clean it up and legally include it on the third Anthology album.
>Mother Nature's Son
>She's So Heavy
>She's Leaving Home
>She Said She Said
>For No One
>In My Life
>You Won't See Me
>Cry Baby Cry
too many. truly the GOAT.
I'm doing top ten because fuck you, I love the Beatles.
In chronological order :
>I Saw Her Standing There
>If I Fell
>I'll Cry Instead
>I've Just Seen a Face
>In My Life
>And Your Bird Can Sing
>It's All Too Much
>Here Comes the Sun
As far as I can tell I don't like the Beatles, but I've never dug super deep into their discography and I've been told it's impossible to not like their music. I can't listen to any music that has pop incorporated in the genre in any way, other wise I like mostly anything; what Beatles tracks should I listen to?
Look through the thread. Find the five most popular (posted) songs and go from there.
I don't think you can be trusted as a human being if you don't "like" the Beatles. It's the social equivalent of not liking water.
If you carry an attitude like that, yet you want to dig deeper into The Beatles music, I can only suggest a limited few items: The song Revolution #9 from "The White Album" (And you can even play the song backwards for twice as much whacky silliness) a song that appears on bootlegs of the Get Back/Let it Be recording sessions that's either called "John (Yoko's calling)" or "Revolting" depending on what edition you possess at the moment. You might also enjoy John and Yoko's first album, "Two Virgins" and a Yoko Ono album simply called "Fly" even though John does play guitar on it. Another recommendation would be the song, "Don't Worry, Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking for Her Hand in The Snow)" which is another Yoko Ono single. If you can't get into The Beatles after listening to these songs, then there's no hope that you'll ever like The Beatles.

Holy shit I hated that so much.
1. Helter Skelter
3. Lovely Rita
4. A Day in the Life
5. Across the Universe
I'm just gonna go ahead and say that [spoiler]Sgt. Peppers[/spoiler] was the best Beatles album by far.
Paul being a controlling shit ass made George and Ringo hate being in the Beatles, and John was wanting to move in a different direction. Instead of working together, Paul just continued to be a shitass. He wanted to write good ol fashioned fruity Beatles songs (see- Maxwell's Silver Hammer), and John wanted to move forward and do new music (see- Come Together, Across the Universe).
I'm not bashing Paul as a musician because he wrote some songs with the Beatles that make me cry but as a band member he tore the Beatles apart.
