I don't really get the Beatles post-Sgt Pepper too much - to me those albums are wildly hit or miss (none made it to my top 60s list - they are a 65-67 band to me mostly and starting in 68, the Stones overtake them and everyone else) but even those later Beatles albums do have some of the greatest music ever recorded.
No order but the first is #1 : almost all Lennon because, well.....I'll be nice and diversify the list but I could do a top 20 and they'd all be Lennon really.
In My Life No Reply Eleanor Rigby Norwegian Wood If I Needed Someone
A Day In The Life
When I Get Home (a wildly misunderstood song that Lennon dissed (wtf John) about cheating on your girlfriend/wife - taking everything about Rock at the time and inverting it - it's some dark and lacerating stuff in 2 minutes and it often goes right by people)
"Eleanor Rigby" "A Day in the Life" "Happiness is a Warm Gun" "Yesterday" "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" "I Am the Walrus" "Something" "Across the Universe" "She's Leaving Home" "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"
Something like that, and with too many honorable mentions to name. This is really difficult to do.

Love their music to pieces It's amazing how it still feels so fresh after all these years.
One of the hardest things to rank, so I'll just look up into my top 10 most listened in last.fm and change a few things.
1. Here Comes The Sun 2. Eleanor Rigby 3. Strawberry Fields Forever 4. Something 5. Across The Universe 6. Hey Jude 7. I Want To Hold Your Hand 8. Yesterday 9. While My Guitar Gently Weeps 10. All You Need Is Love
Across the Universe Carry That Weight A Day in the Life Hello, Goodbye I Am the Walrus In My Life Paperback Writer Penny Lane Strawberry Fields Forever Ticket to Ride
Honourable mentions: Helter Skelter, Twist and Shout, And I Love Her, Revolution 1, Baby You're a Rich Man, She Said She Said, Getting Better, Tomorrow Never Knows, I Want To Hold Your Hand, Blackbird.
Happiness is a Warm Gun Strawberry Fields Forever (first two are basically tied for my favorite Beatles song) Hey Jude Eleanor Rigby I Am the Walrus Across the Universe Penny Lane Sexy Sadie (the most underrated Beatles song) Something A Day in the Life
I only just recently discovered that the chorus of Radiohead's Karma Police is strikingly similar to the piano part in Sexy Sadie. I thought it was a cool connection because it's kind of an unusual harmonic progression.
