Top Beatles Sing-Alongs

The Fab Four's Best Sing-Along Tunes

By

Sure, The Beatles have written and performed some great songs, no doubt about that. But what if you want to share your love of The Fab Four with your little ones? Where do you start? Which songs or albums do you pick? The best idea is to enjoy the songs with them, not play the songs at them. Looking through The Beatles’ albums, I picked out fourteen tunes that would be best for Beatles sing-alongs, songs that’ll get the whole family to join in.

"Love Me Do" - from the album 'Please Please Me' (1963)

Very simple lyrics, easy-going tempo, and that “Pleee-ee-ee-eeeease…” in the chorus…who could resist singing along?

"All My Loving" - from the album 'With The Beatles' (1963)

One of the most rockin’ love songs ever! Sung quietly and slowly, this makes for a beautiful lullaby, as well.

"Can't Buy Me Love" - from the album 'A Hard Day's Night' (1964)

Relentlessly upbeat, another great chorus (No no no, nooooooo!), and the guitar solo is just nuts!

"Eight Days A Week" - from the album 'Beatles For Sale' (1964)

Another great rock love song. This tune could be sung to any kid, just replace “babe” and “girl” in the lyrics with the child’s name!

"Help!" - from the album 'Help!' (1965)

Everybody now: "Helllp!" I love the line in the chorus "...and I do appreciate ya bein' 'round..." Plus, it's kinda funny to hear a little kid sing "When I was younger, so much younger than today..."

"Nowhere Man" - from the album 'Rubber Soul' (1965)

The A-A-A-B rhyme scheme is easy for kids to pick up, the title character is mysteriously interesting, plus the ridiculously beautiful middle eight and gorgeous harmonies throughout make this tune an absolute classic.

"Yellow Submarine" - from the album 'Revolver' (1966)

Hands down, the coolest kids' song ever written.

"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" - 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' (1967)

You just can’t beat the childlike imagery! “Tangerine trees and marmalade skies,” “Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,”…now, those are fun words to sing.

"Hello Goodbye" - from the album 'Magical Mystery Tour' (1967)

Courtesy Apple/EMI/Parlophone/Capitol
One of the best sing-alongs ever! I use this tune in my toddler music programs because most preschoolers are familiar with the words used in this song.

"Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da" - from the album 'The Beatles' {the White Album} (1968)

Courtesy Apple/EMI/Parlophone/Capitol
A great story song about a family who loves each other. And another fantabulous chorus!
