We All Live in a Yellow Submarine

Today is the 40th anniversary of the psychedelic rock album Yellow Submarine by The Beatles.

Although released to correspond with the film of the same name, Yellow Submarine is usually considered The Beatles' weakest release, because it featured only six songs by the band. This album never reached the #1 spot in the US or in the UK.

However, the single, Yellow Submarine, is my 16 year old daughter's favorite Beatles' song.

Side one
All tracks were credited to John Lennon and Paul McCartney, except where noted.

"Yellow Submarine" – Originally from Revolver
"Only a Northern Song" (George Harrison)

"All You Need Is Love"

Side two
