No real surprises when i think about it, they are either covers or songs that are slight, or at least viewed as such by the masses.

Never liked the Kansas City medley and would have put it here if i hadn't of forgotten about its existence - the original is pretty crap as well. I do like Little Child, a fast rave-up, but best to not think of the lyrics (tho there are plenty of songs that border the side of creepy). DML is a good rocker but badly misplaced in regards its placement on Help! (not the only one by the way, Act Naturally is the other).

 

Next up will go for Bungalow Bill, Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby, I'm Happy Just To Dance With You and Love Me Do (it must be soon considering its often grumbled about).

 

Oh - i really like Honey Don't by the way with its rockabilly twang - tho the BBC recordings are better.

I think Bungalow Bill will be soon.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

I can't believe that Kansas City and Her Majesty (which I absolutely love!) got so little votes.

Too bad about "Dizzy Miss Lizzy," but I had a feeling based on the discussions here.

I'll say this: I just noticed recently upon looking at the complete set list from Shea Stadium (not just songs appearing on the video) that Dizzy ML was included. So not only did they play it a the Hollywood Bowl, but they played it at Shea - two of their biggest venues.

Considering how many covers they had in their repertoire, that tells me they had to really like that song (and/or their interpretation of it). So there; at least I have John, Paul, George and Ringo in my corner.

Hey what's wrong with Bungalow Bill?

No real surprises in this list. I can't believe so many people hate on Good Night though. I love that song.

I think if it was somewhere on the 3 with covers, it'd be higher. It just really disrupts the flow of Help!.

Linde said "I can't believe so many people hate on Good Night though. I love that song."

I think this is one of the rare times George Martin didn't get it right. This should have been a simple piano arrangement - a little bit like "Scared" on New. It would then have ranked much higher; at least on my list.

I guess it was more a case of John not getting it right, then, since the Hollywood strings were his idea, I think.

I don't love "Good Night" very much myself, but I do appreciate it's placement right after "Revolution 9" in theory. And I find it heartwarming that Ringo gets the very last song all to himself - especially considering that the album begins with two Starrless tracks.

I hate Honey Pie. It's so boring. I'd rather listen to Wild Honey Pie than regular Honey Pie. Money and You Really Got A Hold On Me should also both be higher I think, along with Boys.

What the hell?!!

You Really Got A Hold On Me & You Know My Name this low???! And below Flying, BoysHoney Pie & Bungalow Bill!! 

YRGAHOM is one of their best covers and one of the best tracks on WTB for goodness sake.

I'm on the verge of demanding a recount.

Totally agree. Money is also one that's really bothering me with it's lowness.

I understand that many people don't enjoy You Know My Name right away, but Boys?!?! a-hard-days-night-ringo-2 That's an amazing song!!!! Poor Ringo getting so many low ratings, that's one of his best!!!!!!

I'm finally surprised, thought that one'd be quite a bit higher... a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Ringo will find all of you who gave Boys a low score! a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I didn't vote but I will be interested to see the results as they come in. I wonder if Piggies will end up in the top 10 :)

Anna probably gave it extra points on the sheets she was adding for you. You'll add everything up without checking and... Piggies will be #1!

Scary thought right?
