Well, I guess these final selections more than make up for the John-dominated no-Paul Rubber Soul finals, Range  LOL

Rei, you did dump IOS too. There isn't John song I like here except "And Your Bird Can Sing". Should smb. list Top 20 Beatles, I wouldn't be surprised to see it there.

For No One should be in the final three, one of my favorite Beatles songs ever.
Taxman gets my vote for the ones that are left though.

.Survivor #8 is going to be DOUBLE the amount of fun!

Hope so.  Thanks for putting up with all the squabbling, pixletwin.

Two of my very favorites didn't make the cuts,  "And Your Bird Can Sing" and "I'm Only Sleeping".

I'm not that big a fan of "Eleanor Rigby" - loved the extended version Paul did in the movie, tho.

I love "Taxman"  and won't mind if George wins one.

I am going to vote for "Here There and Everywhere" - one of his very best songs.

Looks like I missed a couple rounds. Oh well.

Don't really know how to vote for. I'll choose Eleanor Rigby.

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. More at wikipedia.com




Here we come to the final round. The three top survivors.
Revolver is a great album. Each Beatles started to define their own individual personality apart from the group. Once could say that, in a way, this was the beginning of the end.

17 votes spread across the top 3 songs.
One smiler loves Here, There and Everywhere. Unfortunately not everywhere enough.

7 smilers loved the hard driving rock Rhythm of George Harrison's "Taxman". But, HA HA Mr. Wilson, we don't have enough to win.


The winner with NINE votes is...

E l e a n o r   R i g b y
Round#1 Love You To April 10
Round#2 Yellow Submarine April 12
Round#3 I Want To Tell You April 15
Round#4 Doctor Robert April 18
Round#5 Good Day Sunshine April 20
Round#6 Got To Get You Into My Life April 22
Round#7 She Said She Said April 24
Round#8 And Your Bird Can Sing April 27
Round#9 For No One May 1
Round#10 Tomorrow Never Knows May 3
Round#11 I'm Only Sleeping May 6
Round#12 Here, There and Everywhere May 8
Round#12 Taxman May 8

Join us for Beatle Survivor #8 where we will pick apart the best of the best from Past Master's Volume one (minus the German songs plus a few from vol. 2 from the same time period). I am going to divide this album in two. So each round we will be voting off TWO SONGS!!!!

Are you ready?

Any of the 3 remaining would have been satisfactory to me - a real strong group of songs
