Alright. I'm changing my vote to Love You To. That middle bit of Doc Rob is its saving grace.
That's the spirit! 3D

This is the album I consider to be the end of the Beatles v.1 (i.e. the moptops).

Quote
Revolver is the seventh studio album by the English rock band the Beatles. It was released on 5 August 1966 in the United Kingdom and three days later in the United States. The album was the Beatles' final recording project before they retired from performing concerts and marked a progression on their 1965 release Rubber Soul in terms of the group's readiness to experiment in the recording studio. The album's diverse sounds include the incorporation of tape loops and backwards recordings on the psychedelic "Tomorrow Never Knows", a classical string octet on "Eleanor Rigby", and Indian-music backing on "Love You To". Reduced to eleven songs for the North American market, where three of its tracks instead appeared on the June 1966 release Yesterday and Today, Revolver was the last Beatles album to be subjected to Capitol Records' policy of altering the band's intended running order and content.

Good first round. 13 votes spread across 5 songs.

But 6smilers don't Luv U2. Bono is ok, I guess.


Per the usual, vote off your LEAST FAVORITE.

Tally on April 12.

Taxman
Eleanor Rigby
I'm Only Sleeping
Here, There and Everywhere
Yellow Submarine
She Said She Said
Good Day Sunshine
And Your Bird Can Sing
For No One
Doctor Robert
I Want To Tell You
Got To Get You Into My Life
Tomorrow Never Knows

Round#1 Love You To April 10

For the second round the choice gets harder. I know,  initially,  I voted for Doctor Robert... But I am hard pressed to even vote it off this round. I need to do some more listening before I can vote.

What's your least favorite?

Vote!

Yellow Submarine

I've always thought Yellow Submarine was a big of a square peg on Revolver, and would've made a better stand alone single.

Yellow Submarine is one of their defining songs, but it doesn't come close to everything else on here.

I can't vote off Yellow Submarine yet. It is so quintessentially British. It's iconic.

Sorry George. I have to tell you that I am voting "I Want To Tell You" off.

You guys who are voting off "For No One" are breaking my heart. That is in my top three for this album.  Cry  LOL

It's definitely a good song, just that the competition is keen.

What gets me is people voting for She Said She Said. That's in my top 3 for this album!

There's definitely going to be a lot of this. Honestly, there are probably only 4 songs on this album that I would be surprised by someone listing one of them in their top 3. Even then, I'd only be remotely surprised and I'd probably think it was cool. Arguably the strongest album 1-14 ever made.

I understand people voting for Yellow Submarine, but it's really annoying me!  Grin I used to kind of dismiss this song when I was younger as "uncool" and not belonging on Revolver, but that same 'me' also considered For No One an after-thought (now I consider it a masterpiece!). It probably wasn't rockin' enough for me as a teen. I also considered I Want To Tell You a bit of a favorite. I connected with it. I still love the guitar lick and Paul's Indian-style vocalization at the end, but now I'm appreciating other songs more. It's funny, I just listened to the album a few times and made a list from favorite to least, but every time I listened to a song I'd look at it's placement on the list and think, "nah, that can't be right" and I'd want to bump it up 5 spot! LOL and I'd just go round and round like that...

I vote for I Want To Tell You. I'm far too mesmerized by George's harmony vocal in Yellow Submarine (and everything else about it). Anyone think it's too uncool for Revolver? I think it's badass to include it! Not to mention Side 1 is a collection of different genres/styles, in that sense it fits. And it's iconic...

Might as well go ahead and do it, doesn't look like it will last long, anyway:  "Yellow Submarine"

Revolver had George's strongest set of songs up to this point.

To me, Yellow Submarine was the obvious weak link (even if it's still a great song), so it's going to be difficult here.

But, I'm gonna go with
