I love I Will, but I don't understand how it has survived this long. Is Blackbird not a classic?

I've always considered I Will a hidden gem. Conversely, Happiness Is A Warm Gun is a common favorite (though it is a bit polarizing). Even The Beatles themselves considered it a top track. Anyway...

I Will

Anyone have a mono/stereo preference? They are noticably different.

"Yesterday" been the "Gun"/ "Will" tie. police Anyhoo, yahoo! Boring song's gone. Smiley Don't care if Beatles like it.

"Dear Prudence" is nice if too slow, "I Will" too cute to be good. But, it features cool vocal bass, iir there isn't many songs with it? So,
"Dear Prudence".

The writing was clearly on the wall. This was the beginning of the end...

We are going to split the album in two, so round #11 is Disc 1 and round #12 will be Disc 2.

Quote
The Beatles, also known as the White Album, is the ninth studio album by English rock group the Beatles, released on 22 November 1968. A double album, its plain white sleeve has no graphics or text other than the band's name embossed,[a] which was intended as a direct contrast to the vivid cover artwork of the band's earlier Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Although no singles were issued from The Beatles in Britain and the United States, the songs "Hey Jude" and "Revolution" originated from the same recording sessions and were issued on a single in August 1968. The album's songs range in style from British blues and ska to tracks influenced by Chuck Berry and by Karlheinz Stockhausen.

On release, The Beatles received favourable reviews from the majority of music critics, but other commentators found its satirical songs unimportant and apolitical amid the turbulent political and social climate of 1968. The band and Martin have since debated whether the group should have released a single album instead. Nonetheless, The Beatles reached number one on the charts in both the United Kingdom and the United States and has since been viewed by some critics as one of the greatest albums of all time.

12 smilers voted for 2 songs. This should make for a great final round!

I Will be voted off this round by 7 smilers.  Grin

Welcome to the FINAL ROUND. Please remember to VOTE for YOUR FAVORITE TRACK!!!

There are a ton of tracks on this one!  Shocked Shocked Shocked

Tally on September 30

Back in the USSR
Dear Prudence
While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Round#1 Wild Honey Pie August 7
Round#2 Piggies August 10
Round#3 Don't Pass Me By August 13
Round#4 Why Don't We Do It In The Road? August 20
Round#5 The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill August 22
Round#6 Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da August 29
Round#7 Glass Onion September 1
Round#8 Rocky Raccoon September 3
Round#9 Julia September 6
Round#10 I'm So Tired September 12
Round#11 Blackbird September 15
Round#12 Martha My Dear September 22
Round#13 Happiness is a Warm Gun September 25
Round#14 I Will September 27

My top two songs are gone. I would have loved I'm So Tired and Blackbird to battle the final round with the Weeping Guitar, with Blackbird as the survivor,  but alas it wasn't to to be...

I wanted to vote USSR ages ago, so obviously that is not my fave (Beach Boy tribute not withstanding).
I love Dear Prudence, especially the last bit. George's guitar line against the reprise of the first verse and chorus are pretty great.

but...

I love While My Guitar Gently Weeps. This is George coming into a mastery of his own unique style and it is finally equal to the Lennon/McCartney powerhouse.


Vote! VOTE!  V O T E ! ! ! ! !

No contest

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

One of the highlights of The Beatles catalog.  Possibly George's finest moment.  And, in a 50+ year career, I'd also say it's one of Clapton's finest moments.

Don't get me wrong, I love While My Guitar Gently Weeps, but I love rockers and therefore Back in the U.S.S.R wins for me!

I'd replace "Guitar"/ "Dear" with "Piggies"/ "Rocky Raccoon". It's better George song & "Rocky" really rules! 3D The issue with "Guitar" is the bit "I don't know why-y-y-y" & some arr. choices. What does it leave?
