His dot post was voting 2nd time, now with "Here There & Everywhere". He somehow took it to mean that pixletwin arranged separate round, to choose between the 2. I explained to him it's still the same round. & showed him his earlier choice.
Watamushi, did I say it right?
Right.

This is what is right.  Cotton Insect (Watamushi) tried to change his vote.  Did it in a way to the best of his abilities.  Then was told he could not according to some rule I've never heard of, and I've been playing this game for over three years.

When is a game not a game?  When all the rules are set by only one person.  Makes it more a "Rank the Tracks" deal, per individual.  That can be done elsewhere.
No, I didn't want to change the vote, but I thought it was the new round between Here and Sleeping, and thought I had to vote for one of the two. If not for my misunderstanding, that would never happen. Sorry everyone.

Watamushi, may I ask if your name is a word, and if it is, what does it mean?  (You may answer; "It's my name, you fool." if necessary.)


wata means cotton, and mushi means insect.
Watamushi is a imaginary creature in my imaginary world.  It's not my real name, but all my friends and families know it.
And I usually use it as my username.

I explained just that - twice - but they don't believe me. Thanks to confirm my words.

Hmm. Suppressed voter.
Why do you say without knowing? You 2 have no idea what happened.

1) After pixletwin's "7 Here / 7 Sleeping" tie, Watamushi weirdly typed "Here There & Everywhere".
2) Then I reminded him that he already voted bringing up his past post during this round, which was for "Eleanor Rigby". He didn't say clearly that he changes his vote & it made me suspicious that he might got mixed up.
3) I pm'ed him further to clarify & he said that he thought that this is another, separate, round between only 2 songs "Here" & "Sleeping". I told him it's not. Hence he edited his post & replied to my explanation - which instead of jumping with your "rule I've never heard of" rubbish, you should've read Roll Eyes - "Right".

See? It's precisely what took place. Watamushi can confirm (wait! he DID confirm). It's not cool what the 2 of you say. Esp. I didn't expect from Emily to hint I suppress the voter. Apology imminent.
I'm not sure why you think I didn't know what happened.

I knew what happened and I responded as I did, so  that's not correct. Done with the topic.

Why tell it in the 1st place, then? Is there other definition to "suppressed"?

Just drop it please. It is a real buzz kill.

Yes, please.

Tough one. 

Im giving my vote to Taxman.  I love Ms. Rigby, but it feels more like a Paul solo effort.  Its not even my favorite Paul song on the record. That honor goes to For No One.

My favorite Revolver track is probably And Your Bird Can Sing, but didnt have the votes.  Oh well.  Not really a wrong answer.

It sure was a tough one. And I agree with you that For No One is the best of the Paul songs on this album (and one of his best, period, IMO)
Although I voted for "Eleanor" I wouldn't be upset at all if Taxman won. That's a wonderful song. And George would get even better, with the Beatles and especially solo.

I think Eleanor has better lyrics, but the music and melody of For No One is unbe-f***ing-lieveable

Exactly. For No One is as good as most part of Pet Sounds.
