Some would say this is where the cracks began to show in the Beatles Mystique... Maybe more like hairline fractures....

That's a heck of a final four. 

But, I'm reluctantly picking Penny Lane. 

Maybe I'm a little burnt out on it, but in truth, I like Fool on the Hill and I Am the Walrus more, as well as (what should be) the obvious winner of Beatles Survivor 10 - Magical Mystery Tour.

At this point don't really know which to vote for. I'll go with I Am The Walrus, if only because one of my sisters can't stand that song. :D

I think I saw 7 smilers kicking Edgar Allan Poe!

Here we are. The end of the line for MAgical Mystery Tour. Final three songs are listed below.

VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE, THE ONE AND ONLY SURVIVOR!!!!

Tally on August 4

Fool on the Hill
Strawberry Fields Forever
Penny Lane

Round#1 Baby You're A Rich Man July 8
Round#2 Flying July 13
Round#3 Your Mother Should Know July 17
Round#4 Hello Goodbye July 19
Round#5 Blue Jay Way July 23
Round#6 Magical Mystery Tour July 27
Round#7 All You Need Is Love July 30
Round#8 I Am The Walrus August 1

I wanted the Fool to leave last round, so obviously that one isn't my choice.

I love Penny Lane. I love the bass line. I love the vocals. I love the trumpet. I wouldn't mind this one winning, but I can't vote for it.

My vote goes for the place where NOTHING IS REAL. STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER. Although John always thought that Paul sabotaged this song with the production, I think it's perfect.

1st, let's be glad IATW didn't get to finish. Smiley Those saddened by it - pat to the back, everything's cool. Smiley Haha!

"Penny Lane" is great Beatles song. Nice to see you'll be OK it wins, pixletwin.

Thing with SFF is it's really mundane. It's very cool that Paul played that Mellotron intro & sabotaged song etc. - well done, Paul! 3D

Why people don't explain the SFF choice? Don't you like "Penny Lane"? It's objectively better than it. Why not give Paul chance to win? It's always John song that wins. You realize what you do?

Watamushi, don't you like Paul's songs?

B.E., you said Paul will get chance later during early Survivor games. So...when is that chance? When do you vote for Paul song?

NOLA BB Fan, explain your choice too, what beautiful "Penny Lane" lacks that SFF has? & don't tell me again it's lyrics Roll Eyes I don't care big time about who dedicated John the song to, his childhood blah blah. Lyrics is the LEAST important aspect in song - reality check, you know.

Waiting for replies. Ta.

Well, Paul's having his chance. He won Revolver and I voted for it. He could still win Magical Mystery Tour. Actually, I was disappointed that Your Mother Should Know and Baby You're A Rich Man were voted off so quickly. The White Album is a toss up. I don't know what to expect. Both Paul and John wrote fan favorites. Paul should also have a chance to win the late-period singles with Hey Jude. He'll clean up on the Let It Be album. Across the Universe is the only non-Paul song that even has a chance to make it to the final round. As for me? it's obvious I prefer John's songwriting, but I think John's songs were more team efforts. And that's what I love most..The Beatles. John let the rest of the guys shine on his songs. You can say John was lazier or less talented than Paul, but it was for the best! It might be Paul's fault (his great contributions) as much as anything that I vote for so many John songs! Grin

Btw, Penny Lane is my 2nd favorite song on MMT. And, yes, I like the lyrics of SFF more.

I DO like Penny Lane. Just like SFF more.
As for lyrics, we'll have to disagree on that. Depends on the type of song. For certain types of songs lyrics are vitally important (in my opinion).
However the reason I prefer SFF is the music. I like how it builds up with each verse. I really like the outro.
And I absolutely love cranberry sauce!  Cheesy
If it's any comfort to you, I like a lot more of the "Paul" songs on the White album as opposed to the "John" ones.

Two of Paul's best songs up against possibly the best song in the catalog IMO (I go back and forth between it and Day in the Life).
