It is impossible to actually rank their poetic and beautiful lyrics, but here are The Beatles' 10 best lyrics, in no particular order. No other band is more liked, more known, and more respected than The Beatles. While their music alone draws many fans, it is the band's lyrics that have remained an iconic part of their legacy.
- All You Need is Love: "All you need is love/Love is all you need". These are probably the most famous of the Beatles' lyrics. The message is simple, clear, and universal. There is no question why they are the most well-known.
- Can't Buy Me Love: "I don't care too much for money/Money can't buy me love". This song is the poor man's anthem. The Beatles sang a lot about love, and this is one of their most important messages.
- Something: "Something in the way she moves/Attracts me like no other lover/Something in the way she woos me/I don't want to leave her now". Again, another love song from the Beatles. This one is pure romance, definitely popular among their female fans.
- I Want to Hold Your Hand: "Yeah, you got that something/I think you'll understand/When I feel that something/I want to hold your hand". This is what love boils down to: wanting to hold someone's hand. The Beatles had it right with this one.
- With a Little Help from My Friends: "Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends/I get high with a little help from my friends/I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends". Another thing the Beatles were advocates of? Friendship. Fitting, since most of the members were friends from a young age.
- Hey Jude: "Hey Jude, don't make it bad/Take a sad song and make it better/Remember to let her into your heart/Then you can start to make it better". This is one of the Beatles' most anthemic songs, inspiring fans everywhere.
- Blackbird: "Take these broken wings and learn to fly/All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise". Everyone needs a rebirth every once in a while, including the members of the Beatles.
- Come Together: "I know you, you know me/One thing I can tell you is you got to be free". There are no better lyrics than these to describe the political atmosphere of the 1960s.
- Yesterday: "Yesterday/All my troubles seemed so far away/Now it looks as though they're here to stay". The Beatles also did depressed well, too, with these troubling lyrics from their song "Yesterday".
- Let it Be: "And when the night is cloudy/There is still a light that shines on me/Shine until tomorrow, let it be". This is one of the Beatle's more introspective sets of lyrics, from one of their most loved songs.
