My Lost On A Desert Island music collection would have 28 songs from 1967 on it, 12 by The Beatles. Sadly, original Beatles songs are not available as videos on YouTube. Seems to me like someone is losing a lot of money since YouTube pays royalties when one watches a video.
I tried making private Beatles videos but it takes a while to make them and even longer to upload them to YouTube, so I’m giving up on that venture. In future Music on Mondays posts, I’ll just list the songs by The Beatles and you’ll have to search them out on your own. Here are the 12 from 1967:
- All You Need Is Love—Peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
- Eleanor Rigby—The B side of the Yellow Submarine single yet still made it up to #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
- Good Day Sunshine—Released as the B side to the Jukebox only single Here, There, And Everywhere.
- Got To Get You Into My Life—Not released as a single until 1976, 10 years after being released on the Revolver album and six years after The Beatles broke up. Made it up to #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1976.
- Hello, Goodbye—Peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart
- Here, There, and Everywhere—Released as a Jukebox only single in 1996.
- I Am The Walrus—Released as the B side of the Hello, Goodbye single.
- Penny Lane—Released with Strawberry Fields Forever as a double A-side single. Peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
- Strawberry Fields Forever—Released with Penny Lane as a double A-side single. Peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
- The Fool On The Hill—Released as the B side of the Jukebox only single Magical Mystery Tour in 1996.
- Yellow Submarine—Peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
- Your Mother Should Know—From the Magical Mystery Tour album. Not released as a single.
