A Day In The Life rules. It's the best Lennon and McCartney composition and it features George Martin's best ever orchestration.

Hands down A Day in the Life.

This is even betraying the song that made me think the Beatles were awesome in the first place to say this. But A Day in the life is conceptually and ultimately a much better song in my mind.

When you want to convince a hard rocker or a pop lover that The Beatles are the coolest thing on Earth (at least musically speaking), you can play "A Day In The Life" to them, with high volume and that will keep their big mouths open... It has worked for me a couple of times. Terrific song, their best produced one, and one if not the most amazing song ever.

I Am The Walrus. Brilliantly produced and the tune is perfect. I hate the crescendos in A Day In The Life.
