Whilst I wouldn't call them the 'Worst 14', the songs in the Beatles catalogue that I tend to swerve are the over-familiar, and when I play the 45s, I tend to opt for the b-sides ('Thank You Girl' over 'From Me To You', 'I'll Get You' in preference to 'She Loves You' etc. etc.).

Of the songs mentioned so far, 'Flying', 'The Inner Light' (definitely), 'Mother Nature's Son' and 'Only A Northern Song' would probably get in my Top 14!

While I don't dislike every song I picked, some of them don't have the others involved or are only listenable on an occasional basis. I think most Beatle songs have some merit or an interesting twist in there somewhere. And then again some just don't do much for me.

Not the worst songs of the whole catalogue, but the worst songs of each official album (including Magical Mystery Tour) according to my opinion. I didn't consider instrumentals or brief half-baked songs.

1. Chains
2. Devil In Her Heart
3. When I Get Home
4. Mr. Moonlight
5. Act Naturally
6. What Goes On
7. And Your Bird Can Sing
8. Good Morning Good Morning
9. Your Mother Should Know
10. Honey Pie
11. It's All Too Much
12. Maxwell's Silver Hammer
13. One After 909
14. You Know My Name (bonus)

I love Mr. Moonlight!

Actually I quite like it too, but I tend to like every song in Beatles For Sale even though I find few true gems there.

2. The Inner Light
3. Cry Baby Cry
4. And Your Bird Can Sing
5. Your Mother Should Know
6. Thank You Girl
7. Mother Nature's Son
8. Only A Northern Song
9. Across The Universe (Charity LP version)
10. For You Blue

No way! Two of my favourite vocal performances from John and respectively, Paul. Is this a case of you preferring the originals, Todd?
