I am a fan of lists. While looking over one of hundreds of "Top 100 Rock Songs", I noted that A Day In The Life by The Beatles was in the top 5. I was a late bloomer when it came to the Beatles. Until about age 30, I always considered myself a bigger fan of other British Invasion musicians such as Them, The Byrds, and The Stones. That being said, I don't instantly recognize Beatles' tunes by name.
I have to say....this list might have it's flaws (and of course many Beatles songs) but what a great choice for the Beatles top entry. I am still a little surprised that Hey Jude wasn't higher on the list.
Watch this video of A Day In The Life if you please:
