A Day In The Life is the most impressive, but I'm far less likely to listen to it as a standalone track. Even Sgt Peppers as a whole, I kind of need to be in the mood for more so than many of their other albums. It's very hard to decide between these four songs, so I'm going with the three I find myself listening to more often.

We have a tie of 3 votes to In My Life and A Day in the life.

This is impossible. Will have to think about this... Ahhh!

NOLA you want to settle this?

First new vote for either of those decides the round.

Ok guys. This is the culmination of a lot of work and patience. Lets do this. Lets decide what song of all the winning survivor rounds is the song which desrves the title of...
!!!BEATLES SUPER SURVIVOR!!!
[/b][/u]




9 smilers voted across 3 songs.

I read the  news today (Oh boy) that 4 smilers voted this song off....  

We finally made it to the FINAL THREE.

This round changes, don't forget. This time we VOTE FOR which of the three remaining songs is YOUR FAVORITE!!!!

Tally on May 18

In My Life
Eleanor Rigby
Strawberry Fields Forever

Round#1 Real Love March 23
Round#2 Twist and Shout March 26
Round#3 Hey Bulldog March 29
Round#4 Don't Let Me Down April 3
Round#5 Helter Skelter April 6
Round#6 No Reply April 9
Round#7 All My Loving April 13
Round#8 Let It Be April 19
Round#9 I Feel Fine April 23
Round#10 I Want To Hold Your Hand April 25
Round#11 While My Guitar Gently Weeps April 30
Round#12 If I Fell May 3
Round#13 Help! May 7
Round#14 Here Comes the Sun May 10
Round#15 A Day In The Life May 15


This is going to be as tough as we all knew it would be. All 3 songs have at various times been m favorites.

In My Life, just because it shows a side of John which was so rare to glimpse. The melody is beautiful. I love the lyrics and the production.

Eleanor Rigby has that wonderful haunting melody and string quartet backing. About as perfect a song as has ever been produced.

Strawberry Fields has that amazing production. I love the brass section and the cellos. I love the psychedelic weirdness and John's beautiful words and likely his greatest melody.

Arhgggggghghhghgh!!!!

I'm going to go with Strawberry Fields Forever.

The one benefit of losing A Day in the Life is that it makes my vote for the top song a no brainer

I can never really choose my favorite between Day in the Life and Strawberry Fields, but I'm glad one of them came out on the toppermost.

Im the same with The Beach Boys with Warmth of the Sun and Surfs Up.   

Great to play.  Thanks for hosting.
