Thanks RB!

Is this list ordered in any way? It's 100 tracks picked by other artists, right? As such, I would assume that it's unordered. But it certainly has an ordered feel to it....?

My guess is this is ordered, but that's just me.

I would like to see Paul's songs higher. Also Octopus' Garden would be nice to see, maybe instead of Yellow Submarine.

'Strawberry Fields Forever' tops NME's list of greatest Beatles songs ever
Music's biggest names polled to discover their favourite songs by the Fab Four

'Strawberry Fields Forever' has been named as the greatest Beatles song ever in a new poll by NME. 
The 1967 single came out on top of a poll of music's biggest names with Beatles producer George Martin and Pete Townshend of The Who both opting for the song as their favourite as well as members of Hot Chip and Palma Violets. 

Other artists polled to create the list of 100 songs include Dave Grohl, Julian Lennon, The Vaccines, Suede, Nile Rodgers, The Libertines, Noel Gallagher, Matt Bellamy of Muse, The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson, Royal Blood, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner, Johnny Marr and Run The Jewels. 

Ethan Hawke, whose character in Oscar nominated film Boyhood famously gave his daughter a 'Black Album' mixtape of solo material from John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, is also interviewed in the issue about why the post-split years are such a significant part of The Beatles history. 

RANKED!

'Blackbird' in the top 5. Fab!!
But....'Everybody's Got Something To Hide...' isn't in the top 100 and the truly abysmal 'Across The Universe' is number 7??? Not so fab. That's the bloody NME for you.
Peace out to Henrik and all at the AM Forum. Keep on truckin', ya' dig?

Welcome to the forum, EdAmes!

What struck me most is the inclusion of "Like Dreamers Do" and "Now & Then". The former is on Anthology 1, but the latter is unreleased! But apparently Liam Gallagher has heard it...

RB, I edited your initial post with a link to the top 50-1 and a couple of titles that were missing (#62 and #48 to be exact). I hope this is ok.
