The Skippable Beatles Songs In Each Album

There are sure to be some flukes in The Beatles’ career, even from a group as iconic and respected as them. The mere reason that nobody’s perfect epitomized just how normal and common the fab four was, just like the rest of us. It’s indeed hard to identify what those stinkers are per album, but we’ve narrowed down these tracks for your judgment of whether or not they truly deserved to be included in The Beatles’ legendary catalog.


“There’s A Place”

Album: Please Please Me (1963)

Conversely, “There’s a Place” is the album’s poorest original track. Though excellent, it doesn’t belong in the same category as the band’s commercial breakthrough release.

“Please Mr. Postman”

Album: With The Beatles

The Beatles didn’t need to include this cover of The Marvelettes’ original, considering that the album already has gorgeous love songs such as “All My Loving.”

“When I Get Home”

Album: A Hard Day’s Night (1964)

When I Get Home is just a bland rocker that doesn’t add much to the album’s pleasantness, in all honesty.

“Words of Love”

Album: Beatles for Sale (1964)

While the entirety of Beatles for Sale is enjoyable, perhaps the least brilliant cover is The Beatles’ rendition of Buddy Holly’s “Words of Love.” It doesn’t make sense no matter how you spin it.

“It’s Only Love”

Album: Help! (1965)

The song goes largely unnoticeable that you’d hardly remember that the song even exists in the album in the first place. Help! generally is a good album, but it does have its flaws, “It’s Only Love” included.


Album: Rubber Soul (1965)

Rubber Soul was a leap of faith by The Beatles, who now ended their clean, mop-top looks and replaced them with a more experimental touch. This is why the song “Wait” isn’t fitting at all; it only reminds the listeners of what the fab four was before they started to get eccentric.

“Doctor Robert”

Album: Revolver (1966)

The song is a natural holdover to the overall masterpiece, that’s all.

“Fixing a Hole”

Album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)

Sometimes, it’s not enough to just accept the fact that Sgt. Pepper’s is perfect in any form; we have to admit that there are some (or perhaps one) that completely missed out on the album’s concept. That’s what “Fixing a Hole” is.


Album: Magical Mystery Tour (1967)

This perhaps is a filler song, something that the band didn’t bother putting effort into that much since they only wanted to fulfill the desired album length. It’s good, but not the Beatles kind of good.

“Honey Pie”

Album: The White Album (1968)

The song, which was meant to be upbeat, is just a forgettable parody that highlights how drawn out The Beatles is.

“Only a Northern Song”

Album: Yellow Submarine (1969)

Perhaps this song is the most resentful and frustrated song that George Harrison ever recorded inside the band because of how cynically and bitingly it airs the band members’ grievances and other personal business.

“Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”

Album: Abbey Road (1969)

At first, it was fun to see McCartney develop another sense of musical ability for the group, but when songs like “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” repeatedly gain a spot in any Beatle album, you’d know for sure that something’s wrong with the band’s decisions. John Lennon even referred to it as “granny music.”

“Dig It”

Album: Let it Be (1970)

The song “Dig It” is a perfect example of the kind of shapeless jamming that the band has often done inside the album. In all honesty, you just can’t dig “Dig it.”
