Hey Jude for me, hands down. It's probably my favourite song, ever. It's great lyrically, melodically, the recorded version is amazing [The orchestra totally adds to it -- at about 3:40, 3:50 where the louder part comes in ... man. Musical orgasm if ever there was one.] the unity of the song . . . I mean, WHO else could write a song that goes "na na na" for around FIVE MINUTES like that and it'd still be beautiful and enjoyable? Paul. Friggin'. McCartney. <3 Much love.

Let It Be is, IMO, an incredibly close second. But it couldn't surpass Hey Jude. Yesterday is a great song, but... I dunno. It can't even touch Hey Jude, man.

I have to go with Let It Be.  Hey Jude and Yesterday are close behind.

Hey Jude. The nanana's, the harmony, the 7 minute length... What a perfect song. So lovely, so nice, so unique...

Hands down, for me, at least. I mean, I do love Yesterday, Get Back, Eleanor Rigby and all his other songs, but I personally believe that Hey Jude was the peak of his talent expressed.

I always wondered why Paul was screaming during "Golden Slumbers" if it's supposed to be a lullaby?

Great vocals though.  Some of Paul's best.  He really hit his stride as a vocalist on "Abbey Road" (Oh Darling, etc.)--it's funny how his singing just wasn't as strong on his solo recordings.  Maybe having George Martin in the booth to get another take has something to do with it?

Of the songs listed I think "Let it Be" strikes into something very primal, universal and mystical--even more than "Hey Jude" or "Yesterday."  Simple lyrics, but each word absolutely essential.

Let It Be, I also love George's solo in it. I think there is three versions of the song, I've only heard two of them.

considering the effort he put into the whole get back project i would say get back since he probally wrote let it be to make the project seem like it was going great...he was desperate to make the get back project a success...john told george martin he didn't need to use tricks on it because they wanted it natural and unedited...but i guess that went south....i am also saddened that it was changed to the let it be project instead of the get back project...the effort he was mustering up was unreal...the non effort john used is my biggest grievence against lennon the humanitarian...that was the most non professional thing he ever did during the beatles stint....paul lording around probally was depressing tho....

I voted for Hey Jude, just because of the timeless classic it is and the fact that everyone loves it, Beatle fan or not. I do love Golden Slumbers though. I actually never really was too excited about Yesterday. I almost think it's too simple. I don't know, just not my favorite.

I went for Yesterday. It's just a song that was timeless as soon as it was written. Hey Jude wins Best Song To Get Everyone In The Whole Bar Singing Along With You.
