Songs By The Beatles

Updated on April 3, 2011

The following are songs performed, recorded, and/or written by The Beatles. I’ve listed them in no particular order and didn’t add any words of my own, only punctuation. There are 230+ song titles listed, but if you can think of any that I might have missed, please leave a comment and let me know. Once again, they are listed in no particular order. They’re just song titles by a really awesome band. Maybe this will help sum up the Sixties for you...

Love of the Loved

I got a woman, now and then (I’ve got a feeling she’s a woman). You’ll be mine, woman, with a little help from my friends. It won’t be long, ask me why. Because happiness is a warm gun. A hard day’s night what goes on the night before the word ‘birthday.’ Yes, it is. Too much monkey business. Everybody’s got something to hide, except me and my monkey. If I fell, I’m only sleeping. I’m so tired. Your mother should know... Good night, ain’t she sweet? I saw her standing there. “Please, Mr. Postman. Please please me,” She said. She said, “Oh! Darling. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da! Hey-hey-hey-hey! Hey bulldog. Roll over, Beethoven. Twist and shout. You know what to do. I am the Walrus. Hold me tight.” Help! Octopus’s garden, savoy truffle, old brown shoe---rip it up, tip of my tongue. Long, long, long Norwegian wood, what you’re doing---hippy hippy shake, here, there, and everywhere---it’s all too much. Shake, rattle, and roll across the universe. Two of us come together, like lover’s do. A beginning revolution. Things we said today? I, Me, Mine---words of love.

Honey Pie, do you want to know a secret? I want to tell you. I call your name. It’s only love, something that means a lot. All you need is love, and I love her. Hallelujah, I love her so! I should have known better. Tell me why she came in through the bathroom window?! Wait, we can work it out. She’s leaving home one after 9:09. Drive my car, it’s for you, come and get It. Ticket to ride, Magical Mystery Tour. Don’t pass me by for no one, Honey, don’t. There’s a place---Penny Lane, Memphis, Tennessee---I’m down the long and winding road. Act naturally. Don’t let me down, Eleanor Rigby. I need you. Got to get you into my life, girl. I will dig it, wild Honey Pie. Tomorrow never knows what’s the new Mary Jane. When I get home, why don’t we do it in the road? Fixing a hole? I’m happy just to dance with you. From me to you, dig a pony and your bird can sing. I’ll get you a taste of honey. Love you to lend me your comb, Lady Madonna. I’ll keep you satisfied. I’m talking about you. I want you. I want to hold your hand. Komm gib mir deine hand! I wanna be your man. You’ve really got a hold on me junk. No reply? Hello? Goodbye. I’m a loser. I’ll cry, instead. I’m gonna sit right down and cry. Cry, baby, cry. I lost my little girl. Crying, waiting, hoping. Rain misery. Lonesome tears in my eyes. Let it be cayenne. I’ll be on my way, little child. You won’t see me, Mr. Moonlight. Day tripper, I’ll follow the sun. Here comes the sun, the inner light. Good day, sunshine. Golden slumbers, good morning. Good morning, carnival of light. Take good care of my baby, Sun King. When I’m sixty-four, don’t bother me, not a second time. If I needed someone in my life, baby, it’s you.

Martha, my dear, get back yer blues if you’ve got trouble, for you blue every little thing bad to me helter skelter. I’m looking through you, glass onion. Run for your life, Rocky Raccoon. Yesterday, being for the benefit of Mr. Kite, three cool cats watching rainbows eight days a week, searchin’ sweet little sixteen piggies step into love... Tell me what you see, doctor. Robert Maxwell's silver hammer? Strawberry fields forever? September in the rain? A world without love? Don’t ever change the continuing story of Bungalow Bill. You can’t do that, bad boy. To know him is to love him.

Teddy boy, you’ve got to hide your love away nowhere, man. How do you do it? Think for yourself a day in the life. You’re a rich man, the Sheik of Araby back in the U.S.S.R. You never give me your money, taxman. Lucy in the sky with diamonds can’t buy me love. Flying money, sure to fall, any time at all, boys. All things must pass within you, without you commonwealth.

Julia, Anna, Michelle---all together now. All for love. Everybody’s trying to be my baby. All I’ve got to do? Another girl.

Sexy Sadie---Thank you, girl. You like me too much, in spite of all the danger.

Lovely Rita---Not guilty! Baby’s in black. Free as a bird from a window, blue jay way.

Dear Prudence “Devil In Her Heart” Maggie Mae---I got to find my baby chains. Carry that weight!

Long Tall Sally---Hello, little girl. Getting better? I forgot to remember to forget I feel fine…

Mean Mr. Mustard---Leave my kitten alone, madman.

Polythene Pam---Till there was you, nothin’ shakin’ all my loving young blood. I don’t want to spoil the party, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. You know my name (look up the number).

Her Majesty, Clarabella---I’ve just seen a face. I’ll be back Christmas time.

Hey Jude, Mother Nature’s son---You’re going to lose that girl. She loves you.

Dizzy Miss Lizzy---Keep your hands off my baby yellow submarine.

A shot of Rhythm and Blues, Rock and Roll music, real love carol, only a Northern song---Hiroshima sky is always blue while my guitar gently weeps the ballad of John and Yoko Matchbox.

P.S. I love you. I don’t want to see you again.

The end.

Bésame mucho!
-Paperback Writer

      Katharella they get like a month or so on cursive in 3rd grad in Nor. Cal. But really with keyboards it has to take a back seat. What's funny is my daughter loves cursive and is so excited by it cause they only get a taste. So maybe it won't die after all; it has been elevated to "art". :)

      LOL How'd I miss this!? Nevermind, question rhetorical. We used to write these in school! You would have been cool if you went to my school. Except I don't think you were born yet! It was our way of passing notes and when we got caught the teacher saw them and just thought "right, sending song titles to trick me" then we didn't get in trouble. Now kids have all these newfangled cell phones and texting stuff. We didn't have that! I was reading that they're stopping teaching cursive to kids in school now! Except their name. What's the world coming to!

      Mark- I actually realized one I missed the other day, but I'm going to wait and see if anyone else notices... They probably won't, because that's a bit of a mess, huh. It's like the Da Vinci Code or something.

      Ang- I didn't know you baked. I'll come up there and we can get baked together. Or are you talking about a different kind of baking? I'm not allergic to any foods, except health foods. Maybe we can bake some brownies.

      Right, a bit cross. I found myself searching for titles you might have missed. This is too nerdy for words. I do have a life after all.

      Seriously, nice idea and somehow very arty and poetic. I am struggling to stop myself going through their entire catalogue to try to catch you out.

      Feel free to use any of the gibberish I write in your next profile Q...I'm sure it will be awesome..since it comes from me! :) I am starting to bake tomorrow in anticipation of your arrival, please let me know if there are any foods you are allergic to, or do not like...so I can be sure to make all of them. Watching you blow up like Will Smith in Hitch and then feeding you liquid Benadryl to laugh at you will be the highlight here in our sleepy little town. Camera batteries are charged and ready to go. Don't say you're not loved Q.

      Randy- Yeah, they probably will be. It would have helped if Lennon had risen from the dead. Once you have a snide remark, come back, because I enjoy your comments.

      I'm sorry, I'm plum out of snide remarks and quick retorts. But I sure hope so.

      Randy- Yeah, I know. I was just playing back with you. Who's John Lennon? Still playing... I wonder if people will still remember the Beatles 2000 years from now.

    • Randy Behavior profile image

      Randy Behavior 6 years ago from Near the Ocean

      Silly Q, I was just playing. Thought you'd know John Lennon's famous quote "We're more popular than Jesus."

      Randy- Sorry if I offended you or anyone else. I wasn't making fun, though. I was just giving you a list of songs to enjoy. I don't know Jesus. Do they have a record out? Jk. I love Jesus more than the Beatles, but I probably won't be doing something like this with the saying of Jesus. Just because.

      Ang- Thank you SO much. lol. You've made my night. I'm collecting some quotes for when I rewrite my profile, so I hope you don't mind if I use that. Thanks for the beautiful comment. I'm already packed, btw. And I only have 9 days left on the lease, so expect me by Monday.

      Karanda- It was a list of songs. But I'm glad it wasn't boring. Thanks.

      Wow... are you making fun of the Beatles? You know they are more popular than Jesus, right?

      My goal is to please and make people happy. So I have come to tell you that your writing is total garbage and it makes absolutely no sense! :) (And I'm assuming you will know why I typed this!)

      And I still think you're adorable and am getting your room ready...get packed!

    • Karanda profile image

      Karen Wilton 6 years ago from Australia

      Clever! I thought I was going to see a list of songs, boring, but instead I read a nifty piece of Beatles' songs woven into an article. Nice work.

      Dallas- The Beatles really are brilliant, I agree. As far as any other bands, I'm a die hard Nickelback fan and hold fast to the belief that they're the best band ever. If they and the Beatles had a battle of the bands, I think the Beatles would explode from Nickelback's pure awesomeness. I love the Beatles, don't get me wrong. But no one can stand beside Nickelback and expect to live.

      tebo- Everyone should break into song every now and then. Did you dance at all? That's the reaction I was going for. Dancing, screaming, and people throwing their lingerie at the computer screen. But singing along is good enough.

    • dallaswriter profile image

      dallaswriter 6 years ago from North Carolina

      OMgosh! This is brilliant! I love the Beatles but don't know that I have actually heard all of the songs. As for some other great tunes, my husband introduced me to Violent Femmes, definetly a band worth hearing. And Barbergirl28 is right, their stuff is different but it's worth listening too if you have an ear for different perspectives on music. I also like Walk Like A Zombie by Horrorpops. A little dark but writers know all too well that side. :)

    • tebo profile image

      tebo 6 years ago from New Zealand

      Great. I broke into song every time I could string a sentence together that I knew and I knew a few.

      Violent Femmes are known for Blister in the Sun... I had to go out and buy their album. They are a little unusual, but that is why I like a variety of music. Definately check them out... lol

      Marcoujor- It was challenging, but a little fun. It's pretty awesome that you've done stuff like this. I wanted to do movie titles, but that seemed like too big of a project. But I can't take any credit, since I didn't write a single word of it.

      Keith- It would take a while to sift through all that, wouldn't it. Thanks for mentioning food. Now I'm hungry. I don't know how to make toast, but I have some scrambled brains on hand. Cheers to U and yers.

      Stacy- I've never heard of the Violent Femmes, but I'll look 'em up since you've intrigued me. Fun titles, huh. Maybe I'll save that one for you to do. ;) There weren't many fun titles from The Beatles, but taken out of context, they can mean something entirely different.

      Twilight- I was thinking LSD after I pieced all that together. I imagine that's what it'd be like, but I'm afraid I'll never experience it first hand. A lot of bright colors would have made this trip complete.

      Oh, "Q"... I am the "60s"... and I have one music lovin friend that I write "thank yous" to in the manner of which you wrote your most thorough HUB... (you are an old soul) and thank you for the smiles and memories~~ Voted UP & AWESOME!

      Well Adam if you have missed one it might take a little time to find it. Touche, ah that's not the Beatles is it. Now you know what scrambled brains on toast tastes like. Good on yer, as us Aussies would say.

    • barbergirl28 profile image

      Stacy Harris 6 years ago from Hemet, Ca

      That was awesome... I tried to think of one that you missed, but everytime I came up with one you would have listed it a few rows down. Therefore I have failed. But I am happy to fail when I am reading through such inspiration. I love the Beatles! Well done - Now you should do one for Violent Femmes... just cause they have some fun titles to work with... lol

      Not that I ever did (or did I?), the above makes me think of three little letters... LSD.
