      Penny Lane, Let it Be or the electric Revolution! Two are beautiful songs that make me cry, the other one is a revved up rock song that gets me out of my seat!

      A Day In The Life. It combines the very best of both Lennon and McCartney's songwriting talents when they were both at the peak of their game. It's also hauntingly atmospheric, with superbly inventive drumming from Ringo.

      There are so many that I love that it's nearly impossible to choose. I guess if forced to pick just one favorite, I would say, "A Day in the Life".

      Very hard choice, but I think Eleanor Rigby is timeless, heartachingly sad in the lyrics and musically brilliant.
