Guess I'll go with Don't Pass Me By.
Had the potential of being a much better song.

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.

Why Don't We Do It In The Road? I guess.

I think this one is easier to decide the top 3 than to winnow out ones from the bottom. My top 3:
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
I Will
Julia

EDIT: With Back in the USSR and Dear Prudence bringing up the next 2.

Sorry if I just skirted the rules a bit here. :D

As tempting as it sounds Why Dont We Do It In the Road is just not safe

I'd like to keep it going, especially since The White Album will feature quite a few votes.

No I'm not tired of this.
People might still be on holiday, and this album probably doesn't have as much love as the others.
Abbey Road should get a lot more activity

Alright. I'll do a tally later today and we'll move on. I think RangeRover has just dropped pout of the game because there wasn't enough love for McCartney in the final rounds so far.  LOL
