A Definitive Ranking Of The Top 20 Beatles Songs
Lisbeth Calandrino

"The Beatles" were my childhood. It was a family tradition on road trips to always play Beatles songs during the last hour, and my dad's love for The Beatles led to their music being the first music that I remember listening to. It also taught me that tone-deafness runs in my family, because none of us could actually sing any of their songs.

Suffice to say, "The Beatles" bring back good memories, which is probably why I'm playing their songs on repeat in these stressful weeks leading up to finals. Guess what? You too could de-stress using Beatles Music by listening to the songs I'm putting on this handy guide of the top 20 Beatles songs. You're welcome.

20."I Feel Fine"

"She's in love with me, and I Feel Fine"? This song is adorable. Enough said.

19. "Don't Let Me Down"

A hit long before The Chainsmokers released a song with the same name. The Lyrics include:

"I'm in love for the first time/Don't you know it's gonna last/It's a love that lasts forever/It's a love that has no past."

18. "Day Tripper"

A classic about the person who wasn't who you thought they were.

17. "Eleanor Rigby"

If this song doesn't make you cry, do you really have emotions?

16. "With A Little Help From My Friends"

I know for a fact that none of my friends are going to stand up and walk out on me when I sing out of the tune.

15. "Strawberry Fields Forever"

99% chance they were high when they wrote this song? And every college student can relate to the lyrics: "It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out...It doesn't matter much to me"

14. "Ticket To Ride"

13. "Helter Skelter"

This song is really hard to describe, so just listen to it--I promise it's good.

12. "Paperback Writer"

Another one of those Beatles songs that I've listened to probably more than 200 times, but I'm still not sure exactly what they're talking about...

11. "Hey Jude"

Possibly the most famous Beatles song (for good reason).

10. "Revolution"

"Don't you know it's gonna be all right?"

9. "Something"

Another adorable love song.

8. "Across The Universe"

This song is also the name of the highly underrated 2007 musical (starring Evan Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess) composed of Beatles songs.

7. "If I Fell"

"And I found that love was more than just holding hands..."

6. "Oh! Darling"

If you like the song, you should also listen to the cover by Juliet Simms.

5. "Help!"

Probably the 2nd most famous Beatles song on this list?

4. "Blackbird"

A song written for black women during the Civil Rights movement.

3. "I Saw Her Standing There"

I feel like it says something about me that my top three favorite Beatles songs are all SUPER CUTE AND PERFECT.

2. "All My Loving"

"Close your eyes and I'll kiss you/ tomorrow I'll miss you/ remember I'll always be true..."

1. "I've Just Seen A Face"

The link to this song is to the cover in "Across the Universe", which is also one of the best scenes in cinematic history.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
