ahdn_paul_06 It could also depend on the people voting cause if their were ten of me voting then Piggies would be in the top ten.

Never say never, cause it's never 'never'

If you are like a new thingy than introduction your self in the into place here

If you did that then you win!

Into the Sky with Diamonds said

@vonbontee [regarding the "Michelle" discussion above]

"Actually, I'd suspect the Grammys had more integrity in the mid-'60s! My chief complaint with them is that, for as long as I've been aware of them, they seem to regard huge record sales as the chief mark of greatness. How else to explain such timeless "Record of the Year" winners as Toto IV, Natalie Cole's Unforgettable, orThe Bodyguard soundtrack?"

Well doesn't that bolster the value of "Michelle"? It wasn't even released as a single, so it had zero record sales (except as part of Rubber Soul of course). If Grammy voters generally go with the big sales, they had to be REALLY be impressed with "Michelle" to vote it Song of the Year.

Again, this is not to say that the song deserves to be in our Top 10 or that our tastes have to mesh with Grammy voters of 50 years ago, but I'm surprised that such a classic has not even made it to the top half of our list. That's either a result of our small sample size or a sign that the song has not stood the test of time.

lol okay, fair enough, you've got me! You've turned me completely around…Call "Michelle's" nomination the exception that proves the rule! :D

I probably should have engaged your comments rather than just reacting instantly at the citation of the Grammy Awards. I think "Michelle" is mostly just great and would happily put it in the top, uhhh, 40. And in this case, I do appreciate the nomination under the terms you propose, in the same way I appreciate the enshrinement of "Yesterday" as a standard, and Frank Sinatra's famous endorsement of "Something". (Both of which are also Top 40 in my book.) Because all the appreciation from these "legitimate" tastemakers just illustrate this band's multifaceted greatness all the more.

If I'm not mistaken, with a sample size of 17, a single vote putting yesterday 92nd or lower would be enough to move it from #5 to #11. out of the top 10.  Probably nobody would put it that low, but a single vote of 21st would move it from 10 to 11 (thus out of the top 10).  Regardless, I suspect the 17 were mostly the big posters here, and I'm watching the thread just to get a sense of the beatlesbible "community" :)

 

EDIT:  Replaced 'nonetheless' with 'regardless'.  If any of you wonder why a lot of my posts are edited, it's because I always miss some little picky thing like that despite previewing it.

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I just now checked the results that were in the results thread. Wow, some of it kind of offends me. Yes It Is, What You're Doing, One After 909, Matchbox, and Piggies are all much lower than I would have put them. They should at least be above… well, I don't know, but I think they all should have beaten Bad Boy. That song is pretty unremarkable in my opinion (the vocals are good, but… eh), and am I the only one that likes Slow Downa-hard-days-night-john-7 Probably.

Then again, when it comes to Beatles songs, almost any cut is difficult. At least Old Brown Shoe and I'm Down aren't out yet. a-hard-days-night-paul-5a-hard-days-night-george-3(Although they obviously won't either be in the Top 5, that's what I expect anyway.)

I can't agree to that! :D

(lol second time I've made that joke today! I always reply to that particular question in that fashion, even if I don't know what the context was. I overheard Jess saying it to Traci in the lunchroom when I arrived at work this morning and had to chime in.)

Any way to send to someone else, say meanmistermustard as I know he was helping, and get them to do the business for you?

I'm happy to do whatever i can but its Faceo's project so if we are to wait until he has all together again then i'm happy with that too. I'm treating the break as one of those tv cliffhangers that you have to wait a year to find out what happened. I still haven't seen the last Christmas Doctor Who episode.
