Honestly, the Abbey Road album is about as perfect as you can get. Most of their albums from Rubber Soul all the way to the end are greatest hits albums, not a bad song on any of them. One of the greatest bodies of work from any band. I think the total sum of all of their work amounted to just 10 hours of music, amazing!

I just can't narrow it down that much. I like 90% (at least) of what they did.

That's what make this a bit of a challenge.

They wrote a great selection of songs, and when the did 'cover' a song, they pretty much made it their own.

that's amazing. It's crazy to think that they only recorded for 8 years. And toured for much less.

That's what makes it a challenge.

Putting all their songs to pick from, instead of just the ones you remember off hand or the singles..........



when i was coming up with a beatles songs covered playlist (on Finetune, back when they let you make playlists) even picking cover versions of beatles songs was a challenge. (the playlist is here:http://www.finetune.com/playlist/2272171). So many people have done them.
