Hans Hot 100 Beatles Songs: #52: ‘Helter Skelter’

#52: “Helter Skelter’- one of 13 songs from The Beatles White Album- that makes the Hans Hot 100 Beatles songs countdown. If I had done a countdown on The Beatles songs back in the last 70’s- ‘Helter Skelter’ wouldn’t have ranked very high- it wouldn’t have made a Hot 100- it would have been near the bottom. Over time this song has not only grown on me but I’ve come to love it. Paul McCartney wrote it- after hearing about an upcoming song by The Who being the loudest dirtiest song they’ve ever done- and he came up with an idea to top that. He did.

The Countdown so far- 100-‘Any Time At All’/ 99- ‘No Reply’ / 98- ‘You Know My Name [Look Up The Number]/ 97- ‘The Inner Light’ / 96- ‘ You Won’t See Me’ / 95- ‘Baby’s In Black’/ 94- ‘Sexy Sadie’ / 93- ‘I Need You’ / 92- ‘Love Me Do’/ 91- ‘Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey’/ 90- ‘Doctor Robert’/ 89- ‘There’s A Place’/ 88- ‘Good Day Sunshine’ 87- ‘It’s Only Love’ 86- ‘I Want You [She’s So Heavy] 85-‘Yer Blues’ / 84- ‘From Me To You’/ 83-‘She’s Leaving Home’/ 82-‘Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite’/ 81-‘I’m So Tired’/ 80-‘The Ballad of John and Yoko’ 79- ‘Baby, You’re A Rich Man’ 78- ‘Yellow Submarine.’ #77 ‘Things We Said Today.’ #76: ‘When I’m Sixty- Four’ #75: ‘Happiness IS A Warm Gun’ 74: ‘I Will’ 73: ‘Within You Without You’ 72: ‘ This Boy’ 71: ‘And I Love Her’- #70: ‘Fixing A Hole’ #69- ‘Drive My Car’ 68: ‘I Should Have Known Better’ #67: ‘Getting Better’ #66: ‘If I Needed Someone’ #65: ‘I’m Down, #64: ‘Good Morning Good Morning.’ #63:’ Hey Bulldog’ #62: ‘The Long And Winding Road’ #61:’ The Fool On The Hill’ #60: ‘Get Back’ #59: ‘Eight Days A Week’ #58:’ Because” 57:’Two Of Us’ 56:’Girl’ #55: ‘Come Together’ #54: Michelle’ #53″ And Your Bird Can Sing’ #52: “Helter Skelter’

One response to “HANS HOT 100 BEATLES SONGS: #52: ‘HELTER SKELTER’

  1. I love this one as well. I’ve never heard a cover of it that I like as well as The Beatles. U2 did a good cover of it but nothing with the intensity of this. The metal bands that have done covers of this don’t get the rawness that the Beatles did.
