Heal I Saw Her Standing There 40

Hurt Helter Skelter 37

I hope we all remember that the purpose of this is not to choose your favorite song, but the song that you feel is more of a "rocker." Just in case anyone forgot/wasn't sure. And if you don't believe me, check the first post.

:)

Totally agree, which is why my vote has been unwavering. Helter Skelter is one their greatest ROCK songs, but to me a ROCKER is something more akin to the original spirit, and style, of rock'n'roll. The "Rock" songs that I would call "Rockers" are few and far between. It's all down to the definition.

An interesting view. But I still vote for Helter Skelter.

HEAL I Saw Her Standing There 41
HURT Helter Skelter 37

I think Helter Skelter is AWES, obviously. But based upon the limited definition of "rocker" that I'm arbitrarily making up on the spot (but entirely sincerely!), it's too much of a stand-in-one-spot-and-spontaneously-combust-and-ultimately-melt-all-over-the-floor number to "rock" in the classic sense. It hasn't got that constant forward momentum that the other song has. (But hey, give me another month and I'll change my mind and invent a reason why Helter Skelter better fits the definition of rocking!)

That definition made me imagine Abbey Road Studios spontaneously combusting and melting...

Well "I Saw Her Standing There" fits rock and roll rather than normal rock while "Helter Skelter" resembles metal rather than actual rock. I was wondering why some songs got eliminated and I guess I wasn't paying attention to the rules. Nevertheless I like I Saw Her Standing There better than Helter Skelter.

Seem to have opened a debate about what a "rocker" is, which can be no bad thing now that we're coming down to it. No bad thing to show that those of us voting often here have reasons based on our own understanding, rather than just being obstinate in favour of our favourite song.

Me, I didn't want to get into a debate about what is or isn't a rocker - I've just been voting with my heart all along! But then egroeg said we're not supposed to do that so I had to justify it somehow. Maybe next month (or next week) I change my mind and decide I like "Helter Skelter" better and vote differently. But for now, I choose the one that you can dance to.

HEY WAIT A MINUTE, it just occurred to me that there's got to be a couple of addition errors somewhere - the total number of votes should always be 80, and there's only 78! Let me take a few minutes to find out where...

The sum wasn't 100 because there was 8 on the list. Still, wonder how the Get Back and Tell Me Why got messed up.
