Ranking Every Beatles Song (216 Songs)

In which I assign 216 Beatles songs with a score from 0-100, and rank them from first to worst. This is something I’ve long wanted to do — and with the magic of the Beatles on Spotify, I was able to efficiently refresh my feelings on and assign a proper score for each song. This was a lot of fun to put together. I might do it from scratch again in a few years and see how the ranking compares.
