"Yellow Submarine" is really overrated, to me anyway. But "Rain" I think is really underrated.

Eh, it's all opinions. But other people like "A Day in the Life" a lot more than I do. And I like "For No One" a lot more than other people do.

I like Get Back, but I think its kind of overrated, and a little overplayed on the radio. As for most underrated, I'd say And Your Bird Can Sing.

I'll concede, Yesterday is overrated & Baby You're A Rich Man is underrated (because it's one of my all time favorites!:P)

Has anyone noticed a trend developing? It seems that the over-rated songs are the ones always appearing on the radio or within the tracklistings of every compilation album whilst the under-rated numbers are the underdogs - the 'track 10' of the original albums so to speak.

I think 'The End' is vastly under-rated.

Overrated: Yesterday

Couldn't agree more! Vastly under rated.

I honestly don't find any Beatle song to be over rated. The popular ones get all the recognition they deserve.
