Wow. Rough one. I'll name my ten current favorites but not in any specific order (ordering one through ten would be far too difficult):

Taxman
Baby You're a Rich Man
Hey Bulldog
Things We Said Today
Ticket To Ride
She Said, She Said
Paperback Writer
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite
Across The Universe


(Edited to remove The Night Before and add Paperback Writer)

Drat. That's why I hate making lists like this. I should have added Paperback Writer to mine. At least, that's how I feel today.
