So, you like The Beatles? Part 1

It's only fair that I post this up: a compilation of my favorite Beatles songs, one (perhaps two) from every album, and every b-side from every single they've ever produced. I've already done this with The Who (excluding singles), and somewhat with Radiohead, though not officially. It's going to take more than one post I'm sure. Let us begin.. we'll start with UK studio albums.

and, stopping at UK Studio albums in 1965 for Part 1..

Rubber Soul (#1 for 8 weeks, plus another 11 weeks at #2; 47 weeks on chart)
Label: Parlophone PMC 1267 (Mono)/PCS 3075 (Stereo)
Released: 1965-12-03

MP3: Michelle - The Beatles (YSI)
MP3: Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) - The Beatles (YSI)

Tomorrow (perhaps tonight, if I'm bored) we'll continue with UK Studio albums of 1966, starting with Revolver, then we'll dive into compilations, then singles, or singles then compilations. Damn The Beatles for being so goddamn great.
Just kidding. Good for you I'm an extremist.
