Of course theres lots..

but theres a piece of true magic for me on Beatles For Sale in the song No Reply, John of course sings the verse but the real magic happens for me during the middle 8 when then sing 'If I were you, Id realize that I etc etc'
Paul reaches the heights and the combined voices just send shivers down my spine, a truly magical moment for the fabs , no other band imo could reach that summit of greatness, great songs yes of course, but micro moments of sheer beauty and majesty are what made the Beatles stand out, over & over again.

There would be many examples. What leaps to mind first with me is the 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' chorus. Shivers-making for me.

I agree with both of you, nimrod and Klang; one of my very top favorites also are on I Don't Want to Spoil the Party ("Though tonight she's made me sad, I still love her..."). Untouchable, IMO!

'If I Fell' - one of my top 10 favorite Beatles songs, beautiful, swooping Paul vocal playing off John's romantic lead, finally coming together here and there.
'Two of Us' - Everly Brothers-style feeling and nostalgia.
'I've Got A Feeling' - Raging Paul, cool John, perfect mix.
'Getting Better' - Paul has said in many interviews, remembering John fondly, why this interplay is great. I can't add much, really.

Overall, though, I think my favorite bit is 'If I Fell' - the whole song, really.

Yeah, that is great.

I'd probably still just take 'I've Got A Feeling' overall though. What a compliment they are to each other in that one.

Mine too.  If I Fell is a showcase for what these two gifted vocalists could do...

I also agree. If I Fell was probably their ultimate harmony song. I also love IDWTSTP No Reply and Babys In Black. One of the first songs that really blew me away was There's A Place. (And its my miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiind) Their harmony is so powerful it feels like it's distorting the speakers.  JMTC.

I'd also have to say "If I Fell". When I started to really listen to The Beatles as an adult that song amazed me the most.
