What can be said about The Beatles that hasn't already been said? Nothing much, but it doesn't stop us from talking about them.
There is no denying that The Beatles are the greatest band to have ever graced this earth. For one, it's crazy how they are all existed around the same time, let alone found each other. Secondly, their influence on music can still be seen and heard to this day. Whether it be pop, rock, or even grime, band after band still continue to replicate the genius sounds of The Beatles whether they are aware of it or not.
Throughout their time, The Beatles recorded a large number of songs although the exact number is debated. Many of their songs are epic anthems, sung all around the world and instantly recognizable. Sadly, not all Beatles songs get the same amount of respect with many often attributed to someone else or just completely forgotten.
Everybody has their own opinion on what is the best Beatles song, what is the worst, what is the most obscure and what is the most underrated, but that's all part of the fun. What is life without an angry discussion about the best band in the world?
12. I'm Only Sleeping (Revolver)
"I'm Only Sleeping" genuinely makes you feel like you've just woken up, gone to bed, or in the middle of a deep, substantial snooze.
The song was written in homage to Lennon's love of sleeping. It was said that Lennon initially wrote the track on the back of a letter in which he notes how staying in bed and sleeping is much better than any high he can get from a drug. In fact, Lennon was such a big napper that the rest of the band had to wake him up when it was time to rehearse or write music.
It's shame because "I'm Only Sleeping" doesn't quite get the praise that it deserves which is surprising considering it features George Harrison's unique and distinctive backward guitar sounds. To make matters worse, the song appears on an album that wowed the world upon its release. An album that had songs such as "Eleanor Rigby" and "Here, There And Everywhere." An album that included another quirky reverse number, "Tomorrow Never Knows."
You can see why it got a little left behind.
