Worst Beatles song, etc.

    GBNF's thread and Fen's post within it inspired this thread.

    Rules: If you name Revolution #9, you must name something else. Everyone knows Revolution #9 is a piece of shit, it's too easy.

    Go ahead and expound on worst album, though if you pick Yellow Submarine, you have to pick another, same thing as Revolution #9. No Anthology albums allowed, only stuff recorded when they were active.

    Pick your worst John/Paul/George/Ringo song, pick the worst on each album ... whatever.

    My picks?

    Song? Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite ... total dreck.
    Album? Yellow Submarine + Sgt. Pepper's (I admit I haven't listened to With The Beatles, and looking at the track list, it would likely beat out Sgt. Pepper's)

    I'm not a big fan of "Girl" off of Rubber Soul... mostly because of the domestic violence implications in it

    Not a big fan of Piggies.
    All My Loving is an underrated song, not right for this thread but just thought of it.

    Getting Better -- hands down. Perhaps one of the worst songs ever. Well, worst song lyrics, as it's so catchy.

    Here's the lyrics that are so awful:

    "I used to be cruel to my woman
    I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved
    Man I was mean but I'm changing my scene
    And I'm doing the best that I can"

    Hey, I used to beat my wife, but I don't anymore!!

    Let It Be is easily the shittiest album.

    Piggies sucks musically but the lyrics are funny.

    I'll vote "Wild Honey Pie" worst song, though there are many.

    EDIT: Shit, WI beat me to it.

    Never been a fan of And Your Bird Can Sing.

    Paperback Writer doesn't get the love it should.

    "All My Loving" is probably the best song from the moptop era.

    One strange cultural footnote- the freaky German industrial band Leibach covered "Let It Be" in its entirety just because they thought it was the worst Beatles album. Their version is some fascistic, frightening-sounding shit...complete with the "cookie monster" vocals often heard in speedmetal.

    My buddy (huge, huge Beatles fan) chimes in with "You Like Me Too Much". I don't even know that song.

    Within You Without You from Sgt. Pepper's has never been a favorite.

    Best Rutles song?

    Can't go with the obvious "Hold My Hand, Yeah, Yeah." :)

    The "If I Fell" send-up, "A Girl Like You" is actually a good song.

    Also notable, Rutle-wise, are the hilarious "Doubleback Alley" ("Penny Lane") and "Another Day" (not really modeled on a specific song, but sounds like McCartney's stuff from The White Album).

    Random "Penny Lane" footnote..."fish and finger pie" is Liverpudlian slang for feelin' up your sweetie.
