To celebrate Lennon's life and music, let's fight!

The Challenge: 21 best Beatles songs NOT on One, the Red or the Blue compilations. That's right, it's a bigger challenge but the Beatles deserve this kind of thought and debate. There are lots of people out there who have never heard any album tracks not on one of those comps. It is our job to rectify that situation.

First shot:
And Your Bird Can Sing

"You Never Give Me Your Money" - My favorite Beatles song of all-time.

Some second thoughts:

"I Saw Her Standing There" and "Twist and Shout"- Please Please Me
"For No One"- Revolver

"She Said"

I could also rhyme off a string of fab covers ("Besame Mucho," "Chains") but they aren't originals. But I've always used covers as a way to measure a band's passion for their infuences. The Beatles were pretty passionate. They enjoyed playing.

"Hey Jude" is on both One and Blue. Doesn't count.

How about "Only a Northern Song" and "It's All Too Much" off Yellow Sub?
