The editors at NME took a long, hard look at the 185 self-written Beatles tracks and rated each and every one of them. The band's 1966 Revolver closer, “Tomorrow Never Knows” topped the chart, with 1967's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club finale “A Day In the Life” coming in second, Paul McCartney's 1968 tour-de-force and nine-week chart-topper, “Hey Jude” following at Number Three.
Coming in at Number Four was John Lennon's “Strawberry Fields Forever,” with the Top Five rounded out by George Harrison's sole Number One hit for the band — 1969's “Something.”
Incidentally, the Beatles song that came in dead last at Number 185 was McCartney's 1968 one-man-band snippet from the “White Album” — “Wild Honey Pie.” The runner up — at Number 184 — was the equally short “Dig It” from 1970's Let It Be.
