If you ask me what the best collection of Beatles songs is I'll say white album, absolutely. As far a albums go, ones that are to be listened to all the way through, its not even top 3 for me. I put it behind revolver, rubber soul and abbey road. Each of those is a masterpiece. White album gets interrupted by shit, as thenewgreen points out below. That said, happiness is a warm gun and helter skelter are probably my favorite songs of theirs.

My favourite song has to be either Paperback Writer or Julia

Julia is the only Beatles song ever released that features only John playing. Written for his mother, as I'm sure you know. Wonderful, wonderful song. Paperback Writer has such a kick ass guitar riff. Reminds me of this old post: Ask Hubski -Best Beatles Guitar Riff

you know what else has great guitar, Helter Skelter. I just love the energy behind it.

Hell yeah. Also Revolution. -Was the first song that introduced what "distortion" is to me.

I have a question about Revolution. Was the original the slow or the fast one? I love both but they each have a different feel.

I had the reverse, I used to spell the bug Beatle when I was a kid.

I was kidding about Yoko.
