Question Greatest songs

When Rolling Stone published their latest "500 Greatest Songs Of All Time", the Beatles were well represented. How many Beatles songs made the list and which song ranked the highest?

Still not correct. "Hey Jude" is the correct second half of this question.

Are you including solo songs by The Beatles as part of the count?

26 songs made the list. Hey, Jude ranked the highest at number eight.
