For a while forget Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, the Jonas Brothers and other contemporary pop stars. Before the outrageous outfits, hip-thrusting dance moves and teeny-bopper lyrics there was the famous four: John, Paul, George and Ringo. Just when the world was trying to break free from the prim-and-proper demeanor of the 50’s and 60’s these boys went all out to sport those haircuts, from which Bieber got his inspiration from.
To celebrate the awesomeness of these four guys, we’ve compiled our version of the Top 10 Beatles Songs ever.
1. Strawberry Fields
A puzzling song, since we don’t have any idea what this song is about – is it about the war or something else? Only John knows for sure.
A relaxing song, excellent guitar.
Frank Sinatra once said that “Something” is the greatest love song by Lennon and McCartney.
4. Hey Jude
A song written by Paul McCartney that was said to be inspired by John and Cynthia Lennon’s son Julian.
5. Here Comes the Sun
A song that perks up any mood. Great song for your mp3 alarm.
6. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
George was said to have started with a random phrase from a random book in writing this song. The phrase was “gently weeps.” The song was completed with help from Eric Clapton for the musical arrangement.
A song with very powerful lyrics that is perhaps one of the most prolific songs ever.

9. We Come Together
