De 100 canciones, ¿cuál es la mejor de los Beatles?

Esa misma pregunta se hicieron los responsables de la revista Rolling Stone que crearon una lista con 100 canciones de los Beatles y fueron eligiendo las mejores hasta que llegaron al greatest hit. El objetivo principal de confeccionar dicha enumeración era observar la evolución musical y compositiva que tuvo la banda en sus diez años de existencia.

En palabras de Elvis Costello:
Fue un grupo que pasó de hacer letras sencillas de amor a historias adultas, como “Norwegian Wood”, que habla de la cara agridulce del amor, o a otras canciones que recogían ideas más importantes de las que cabría esperar de un grupo de pop pegadizo. ¿Y cuál es el mejor tema de los de Liverpool según Rolling Stone? “A Day In Life”, compuesta por John Lennon y Paul McCartney y perteneciente al Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

La revista apunta que es “la mejor colaboración entre los dos artistas”, aunque no fue reconocida como obra maestra hasta los años 80, después de la muerta de Lennon. Para componerla se inspiraron en los periódicos y en la vida del propio John, así como en la idea de McCartney de contar con músicos clásicos.


Y así queda conformado el Top 10 de las 100 mejores canciones de los Beatles, que se puede consultar de manera interactiva en la web de Rolling Stone.


1.- “A Day in the Life”

I read the news today oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade

And though the news was rather sad

Well I just had to laugh

I saw the photograph

He blew his mind out in a car

He didn't notice that the lights had changed

A crowd of people stood and stared

They'd seen his face before

Nobody was really sure

If he was from the House of Lords

I saw a film today oh boy

The English Army had just won the war

A crowd of people turned away

but I just had to look

Having read the book

I'd love to turn you on

Woke up, fell out of bed

Dragged a comb across my head

Found my way downstairs and drank a cup

And looking up I noticed I was late

Found my coat and grabbed my hat

Made the bus in seconds flat

Found my way upstairs and had a smoke

Somebody spoke and I went into a dream

I read the news today oh boy

Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire

And though the holes were rather small

They had to count them all

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall

I'd love to turn you on


2.- “I Want to Hold Your Hand”

Oh yeah, I'll tell you something
I think you'll understand
When I'll say that something
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

Oh please, say to me
You'll let me be your man
And please, say to me
You'll let me hold your hand
I'll let me hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy
Inside
It's such a feeling that my love
I can't hide
I can't hide
I can't hide

Yeah, you've got that something
I think you'll understand
When I'll say that something
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy
Inside
It's such a feeling that my love
I can't hide
I can't hide
I can't hide

Yeah, you've got that something
I think you'll understand
When I'll feel that something
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand-

3.- “Strawberry Fields Forever”

No one I think is in my tree, I mean it must be high or low.
That is you can't you know tune in but it's all right.
That is I think it's not too bad.

Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about.
Strawberry Fields forever.

Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out.
It doesn't matter much to me.

Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about.
Strawberry Fields forever.

Always know sometimes think it's me, but you know I know and it's a dream.
I think I know of thee, ah yes, but it's all wrong.
That is I think I disagree.

Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about.
Strawberry Fields forever.
Strawberry Fields forever.
Strawberry Fields forever.

4.-“Yesterday”

Yesterday,
All my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh I believe in yesterday

Suddenly,
I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go
I don't know, she wouldn't say
I said something wrong
now I'm long for yesterday

Yesterday,
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go
I don't know, she wouldn't say
I said something wrong
now I'm long for yesterday

Yesterday,
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh I believe in yesterday

5.-
“In My Life”

There are places I'll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

6.- “Something”


SOMETHING IN THE WAY SHE MOVES
ATTRACTS ME LIKE NO OTHER LOVER
SOMETHING IN THE WAY SHE WOOS ME
I DON´T WANT TO LEAVE HER NOW
YOU KNOW I BELIEVE HER NOW

SOMEWHERE IN HER SMILE SHE KNOWS
THAT I DON´T NEED NO OTHER LOVER
SOMETHING IN HER STYLE THAT SHOWS ME
I DON´T WANT TO LEAVE HER NOW
Letras4U.com » letras traducidas al español
YOU KNOW I BELIEVE HER NOW

YOU´RE ASKING ME, WILL MY LOVE GROW?
I DON´T KNOW, I DON´T KNOW
YOU STICK AROUND NOW IT MAY SHOW
I DON´T KNOW, I DON´T KNOW

SOMETHING IN THE WAY SHE KNOWS
AND ALL I HAVE TO DO IS THINK OF HER
SOMETHING IN THE THINGS SHE SHOWS ME
I DON´T WANT TO LEAVE HER NOW
YOU KNOW I BELIEVE HER NOW

7.- “Hey Jude”

HEY JUDE, DON´T MAKE IT BAD
TAKE A SAD SONG AND MAKE IT BETTER
REMEMBER TO LET HER INTO YOUR HEART
THEN YOU CAN START TO MAKE IT BETTER

HEY JUDE, DON´T BE AFRAID
YOU WERE MADE TO GO OUT AND GET HER
THE MINUTE YOU LET HER UNDER YOUR SKIN
THE YOU BEGIN TO MAKE IT BETTER

AND ANYTIME YOU FEEL THE PAIN
HEY JUDE REFRAIN
DON´T CARRY THE WORLD UPON YOUR SHOULDERS
FOR WELL YOU KNOW THAT IT´S A FOOL
WHO PLAYS IT COOL
BY MAKING HIS WORLD A LITTLE COLDER
NA NA NA NA NA
NA NA NA NA

HEY JUDE DON´T LET ME DOWN
YOU HAVE FOUND HER, NOW GO AND GET HER
REMEMBER TO LET GET INTO YOUR HEART
THEN YOU CAN START TO MAKE IT BETTER

HEY JUDE BEGIN
YOU´RE WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO PERFORM WITH
AND DON´T YOU KNOW THAT IT´S JUST YOU
HEY JUDE, YOU´LL DO
THE MOVEMENT YOU NEED IS ON YOUR SHOULDER
NA NA NA NA NA
NA NA NA NA YEAH

HEY JUDE
HEY JUDE, DON´T MAKE IT BAD
TAKE A SAD SONG AND MAKE IT BETTER
REMEMBER TO LET HER UNDER YOUR SKIN

8.- “Let It Be”

When i find myself in times of trouble, mother mary comes to me
speaking words of wisdom, let it be
and in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
speaking words of wisdom, let it be
let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree
there will be an answer, let it be
for though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see
there will be an answer, let it be
let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
there will be an answer, let it be
let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
whisper words of wisdom, let it be
let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me
shine until tomorrow, let it be
i wake up to the sound of music, mother mary comforts me
speaking words of wisdom, let it be
let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
there will be an answer, let it be
let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
whisper words of wisdom, let it be

10.- “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it need sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
how to unfold you love
I don't know how someone controlled you
they bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted
you were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
no one alerted you

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

Oh, oh, oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah yeah
