Usually with the survivor pool, songs don't so much get voted out because they're not liked, it's just that the other songs are stronger.  Especially with these mid 60s Beatles releases. 

With the Beatles songs, picking the ones I really like or don't care for can't always be explained properly. I was around when these songs came out and remember in many cases what was taking place at the time.
For example, I really like "I've Just Seen a Face" from the Help! album. Not so much for the quality of the song but rather the "good vibe" that I associate with it. It was a hard decision to vote it out.

I feel the same way about It's Only Love, pretty simple song, and not some of Lennon's better lyrics, but I like the feel.  I can't believe it was one of the first to go.

I know Lennon disliked the song, but I love it too. It's so fun to sing!

John was often unkind about the songs from the early Beatles years.  I wonder if he would've softened on that stance had he lived beyond 40.

My heart wants to give every original Beatles album 5 stars out of 5. My head wants The lowest rating to be 4 stars. No other band means more to me..... except The Beach Boys.

And wouldn't it be nice to live together, in the kind of world where we belong?
