Tune Talk: Top 3 Best Beatles Albums

Willie Williams , Staff Writer

3. Sargent Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)
One of The Beatles best known work came from this legendary album in 1967. Not only was this album great but it was released just before “The White Album” and “Abbey Road.” If you don’t know what I mean there, I basically just mean that we got back to back legendary albums from the greatest rock band to ever form. Most rock and roll fans tend to overlook this album and don’t really see the true beauty of the album overall. This album featured some great hits like “Sargent Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club band,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “Lonely Rita,” “Getting Better,” “A Day in the Life,” “Sargent Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise),” and “Within You Without You.”

2. The White Album (1968)
Said to be the greatest album The Beatles ever released (Mr. Stewart), this album was definitely some of The Beatles greatest work in the 60’s. This album showed us the true talent that George Harrison had as The Beatles lead guitarist and it also featured some great songs. “Happiness is a Warm Gun,” “Wild honey Pie,” “Back in the U.S.S.R.,” “Glass Onion,” “Martha Dear,” “Blackbird,” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” were all released with this album. I have to say. This album was pretty great. If you’re a Beatles fan and you haven’t checked this album out yet. I’d highly suggest you do before Mr. Stewart finds out.

1. Abbey Road (1969)
This album is known to be one of the greatest albums of all-time. The Beatles changed so much within their time of being in a rock group from 1962-1970. Abbey Road had so many great hit singles on it that it’s hard to pick which ones were the greatest. I mean like a top 10 best songs off of the album. I’d say that the top 3 songs off of the album would be “Come Together,” “Here Comes the Sun,” and “Octopus’s Garden.” Anyways, this album was put in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1995 and won “Best Engineered Album” in 1970 also from the Grammy’s. The Beatles have also sustained a lot of recognition from the street that they had crossed on in London. Tons of people to this day still take pictures of each other while crossing the legendary crosswalk. This album gave us some great hits like “Something,” “Oh! Darling,” “Come Together,” “Here Comes the Sun,” “The End,” and of course, “Octopus’s Garden.” This album also came with some controversy stating that bass guitarist, Paul McCartney, was dead since he has no shoes on the album art.
