For the new issue of EW, which will arrive on stands this Friday (Sept. 4), our music staff spent countless hours debating a very important question: What are the 50 best Beatles songs? In the end, after giving the remastered Beatles catalog a thorough listen and weighing strong arguments pro and con for many potential No. 1 picks, we settled on the safe consensus choice of…drumroll, please… “Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand.”

Just kidding! Come back to the Music Mix tomorrow to see our real No. 1, and pick up the new EW for our full list of the Top 50 Beatles songs — not to mention our picks for the worst 5. Then let us know what you think of our lists in the comments section below. Or get an early start by posting your own picks for the best Beatles songs of all time right now!
