"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.
"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?
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.
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.
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).
"Don't you know it's gonna be all right?"
Another adorable love song.

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..."
If you like the song, you should also listen to the cover by Juliet Simms.
Probably the 2nd most famous Beatles song on this list?
A song written for black women during the Civil Rights movement.
I feel like it says something about me that my top three favorite Beatles songs are all SUPER CUTE AND PERFECT.
"Close your eyes and I'll kiss you/ tomorrow I'll miss you/ remember I'll always be true..."
The link to this song is to the cover in "Across the Universe", which is also one of the best scenes in cinematic history.
