Summary, etc.:
"The Beatles loom large over the musical landscape even now that nearly a half-century has passed since the four men from Liverpool played their last notes together. While the story of their stunning rise and brief but brilliant time together on top of the pop music world is undoubtedly fascinating, it would ring hollow without the scores of incredible songs that accompanied each milestone. These songs are the focus of rock writer Jim Beviglia's latest foray into the catalogs of rock royalty. Counting Down the Beatles: Their 100 Finest Songs features Beviglia's list of the best songs in the band's unparalleled oeuvre. Ranked in descending order from #100 to #1, each song is accompanied by a lengthy essay providing information on the song's writing and recording, context on where it falls within the band's timeline, and the author's analysis and explanation why it deserves its position in this hallowed canon. Every fan of the Beatles, from attendees at their first U.S. tour to the newest generation's devotees, will find this collection an informative, insightful, and entertaining adventure. Not only will it reveal little-known facts, but it just may start some arguments and settle a few debates." --
