Yeah, I can't partake in something like this.  How do you judge "Strawberry Fields Forever" against "If I Fell"?  Or "Hello Goodbye" against "Taxman"?  

Like FP said, they're like my kids.  I love them all for all their quirks and idiosyncrasies, and they're all perfect.  To try to argue that "I'm Only Sleeping" is somehow superior to "Hey Bulldog" is like multiplying zeroes.  

E is for 'Ergent'.

I'm afraid I have similiar problems to our friends above, I also couldn't disqualify the covers. How could things like Twist And Shout and Long Tall Sally not make the Top 100?

However, not to be wholly negative, were you interested, could I make a suggestion? Ask people to contribute their top thirty, or their top fifty songs that they performed (you can't get down to versions, that would be too confusing - single version against album version, original against Anthology - in my opinion) in no particular order, and then add up how many times songs appear in those various lists. You may end up with joint #99s, #47s or #1s, but it would be the most honest reflection. And if people were just offering their favourite so-many, those who may struggle to join in because they couldn't choose their #1 might be more comfortable contributing.

I know I would, so long as covers are allowed.

Can I have, for example, both While My Guitar Gently Weeps and While My Guitar Gently Weeps from the Anthology on my list?

Does the Abbey Road Medley count? (Probably not... blue-meanie)

And you're right, mja- I don't know why somebody hasn't had this idea yet. I'm glad Sam started it. apple01

No, sorry. Hope that didn't disappoint you too much, I hate doing that.

Here, I'll make a direction guide right here.

So, each poster will make their top 50. Making sense so far, then with the glad to help mja, me and him will keep track of the numbers. Say, In my Life had 78 people having it in the top 50,  that would make it number one because no other song had as many places in the top 50. Another rule is that you can only use songs from official releases so you can use songs from Live At The BBC, and Anthology series, IF the songs that you use are the ones that were first released on that. But you could chose the version you prefer and put it next to the song. Outtakes and covers are allowed also.

EDIT: The Abbey Road Medley will not be an excuse to have more songs, their separate.

Please tell me if this makes sense I'd be happy to improve.

P.S. Glad you like the idea Ilove George (gasp I just gave away you're secret!a-hard-days-night-ringo-6) It means a lot more than most would think, but I'm not getting into my personal life on the web.

I'm still a little confused about the Anthology thing- for example, I know you said I couldn't put both versions, so could I omit the White Album version and put only the Anthology version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps?

A vote for "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is a vote for "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", the version won't be specified in the overall list, just the song. But Sam, could I point out that "Child Of Nature" (a short fragment maybe) was released on the "Fly on the Wall" disc of "Let It Be... Naked". "Because I Love You So" from that disc is in my Top 50! Is it not allowed?

EDIT: Oh, and you're the pioneer of this whole Top 100 made up from forum members. I got the idea from you of what was possible, and like Egroeg said, why's nobody thought of this idea?

Sleep! I need Sleep! Maybe late night, early hours for you. It's 5:12am for me and I am ill. My last comment of the night!

Yes! When mja and I make the tallys we would just put the one with the most marks on it. Thanks for a solution.

Crap, forgot about Fly on the Wall, I'll allow it just because of the two songs you mentioned above. I'll edit my directions. And boy do I hate it when I post things while other poster are posting. I just told Egeorge that he could list it as the anthology or album version because I thought it was a good idea. Well you did tell me I'm the boss and I'm sure you won't mind. Also, Why do I have a feeling Mja, Egeorge and I are going to be the only ones doing this.
