The Beatles songs thanks to inspiration from Sharad. Been listening to a lot of ‘em the last few days. And I realize that there are probably going to be many more songs to listen to, and whole albums to appreciate – these are just a few of the ones I like till now.

Also, this is a call for musical inspiration – I’d love to see lists of other people’s favourite songs, with reasons for why they like those songs as part of my musical education, which like every other education is going to be lifelong as far as I am concerned :-)

I was a little worried when I didn't see any Beatles songs in your first list. But these songs are awesome ! And Travis' 'Sing' and U2 'Beautiful Day' were also awesome Live 8 Singalongs. Great list , this.

I'll email you some Beatles gems sometime- there are so many of them, it gets hard to choose. I'm surprised you've heard She's a's one of their less known songs. Listen to Yes It Is, if you can...will see if i have it somewhere. Have fun.

Oh and btw, the song Parsley, Sage Rosemary and Thyme is called Scarborough Fair. Useless trivia : My old Chinese flamate decided to have 'Rosemary' as her english name, thanks to this song :)

Yay for the Beatles. Of all the ones you listed here, I think Strawberry Fields Forever is my favourite!

Sharad: Thanks for the encouragement. Will look forward to the Beatles gems in the future. And yes, I did realise later that its called Scarborough Fair and not parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme-thanks though!

Penny Lane: Yes, I like that one too. And thanks for visiting!
