5 Beatles Songs That Just Didn’t Do It For Fans | I Love Classic Rock Videos

Let’s face it: not all songs by the Beatles are considered great. We can’t deny that the fab four had some great musicians in their midst, especially with the iconic duo of Lennon and McCartney, and that some of their compositions are up there with the finest rock songs ever written. Despite this, they occasionally let out trashy songs, and we’re here to take note of them. Check it out


“Free As A Bird” – The Beatles Anthology (1995)

As a documentary, The Beatles Anthology is excellent, and the albums that accompany it are like candy for die-hard fans. “Free as a Bird,” a revised version of a classic song, was also released as a single that year.

“Christmas Time (Is Here Again)” – Fan Club song (1967)

Over the course of its six-minute duration, the band in “Christmas Time (Is Here Again)” repeats the song’s title. Maybe with different instrumentation, this song might have been more successful, but the one used here is too rigid and boring to really do the song justice. That song never became a hit speaks volumes. Ringo Starr has produced a solo rendition of this song, although unlike the original, it is rather short.

“Dig a Pony” – Let It Be (1970)

There are many who consider Let It Be a classic, while others regard it as a disorganized jumble from a band that has lost it. Listen to “Dig a Pony” and you’ll have proof that the album is terrible. John Lennon’s trippy words don’t add up to a cohesive mood or theme, and the tune is terrible.

“Her Majesty” – Abbey Road (1969)

If Abbey Road, the final album by The Beatles, had a final track, “The End” would be ideal. But that’s not the album’s final track. The album instead concludes with “Her Majesty,” a 23-second parody about trying to attract Queen Elizabeth II. This is meant to be humorous, but instead, it comes out as offensive. At times Paul’s humor was quite witty, but “Her Majesty” is completely off the mark.

“The Long and Winding Road” – Let It Be (1970)

The double A-side single “The Long and Winding Road/For You Blue” was the band’s last to reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100. To say that “The Long and Winding Road” was an unsatisfactory conclusion to the Fab Four’s story is an understatement. A mushy easy-listening song that could have been composed by sappy ballad artists. It was the band’s final offering after years of innovation, so fans who hoped for something more than this, ended up in pure disappointment.
