Have I ever mentioned that my favorite Beatles song is the one above – Hey Bulldog? I was prompted to remind everyone of this because of a ping I received on Facebook, of all places, from a high school classmate. The video that the Beatles performed for the song is up on YouTube. It is one of my earliest musical remembrances as I was 4 years old when it was released. It appears in the movie Yellow Submarine as well (so that film needs to move up in my queue now).
So picking a favorite Beatles song is a lot like picking a favorite Kubrick film. They are all good, but it depends on lots of intangibles when picking a favorite. It’s complicated and it doesn’t necessarily have to be the critically agreed “best” of a given artist’s work. Everyone knows my favorite Kubrick film right?
