Beatles in the Blood said

I just told Egeorge that he could list it as the anthology or album version because I thought it was a good idea.

Um... not sure if that was a typo or not... just so you know, I'm a girl. :)

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.

Others will probably join in after it really gets started.

I can give you a top 1, i might be able to get a top 10 but a top 30 or 50? No chance on this fairy tale planet, especially when you throw in the bbc tracks. I tried to edit down the first 5 albums to one 78 minute cd for someone and failed dismally.

As for allowing the snippets because theyre on the fly on the wall disc, sorry dont agree with that. Might as well go the whole hog and include the unreleased outtakes. How you can include a song based on a 8 second odd snippet is a mystery, especially when Child Of Nature is based on a tiny half arsed run thru and not the demo recorded in '68.

I don't see why you could include Fly on the wall but not both the Anthology version AND the album version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps..

Anyway, sounds cool, but it'll take me a long time to come up with a top50

Thank you for these suggestions but I'm not going to take any more unless its because it doesn't make sense, outtakes are now allowed.

A top 50 of all Beatles songs would probably take me hours. I don't have the patience for that..

I just looked at the songs I've given 4 and 5 stars to on iTunes, as every once in a while I just like to listen to those. And I have 68. Eliminating 18 might be a bit of a chore, but not to bad. At least the 5-star ones make a neat 25.

Is there a way to change this topic name? Because, I'm sure Help!  I Need Somebody Help! is attracting much people! There's not anymore posts floating around much here. (Yeah I'm not very patient.) Something like The One-Hundred Best Beatles Songs sounds like a more appropriate title.

Joe might change it if you ask him to, or maybe one of the mods could change it.

I will make the list every time there are three people to add up their songs, so it'll be like 3 posts, 6 posts, and so on.

Sorry Linde, but you can only have one version of a song, you put the anthology and studio version of WMGGW.

Question, (weird considering I'm the starter and rule maker here.) but how would you calculate this, like on the three list given already, In My Life places 1,3,17. Would the 17 bring to the value of In My Life, please tell me how that would work.

Umm... maybe add up the numbers, and then the lower numbers are higher on the final list?

Example: In My Life = 1 + 3 + 17 = 21, Something = 2 + 6 + 1 = 9. Something scored lower, so it ranks higher.

Does that make sense?

I would direct you back to my suggestion in post 9.

Mja, your method is good and would make sense, but since we're spending time organizing it into order by rank, I thought the rank could play a part in it (see my idea in the post above yours). Just a suggestion, though.

But part of the reason for that is that people have started making contributions before a final set of rules and explanation have been settled on. In post 9 there is also a suggestion for whether people's lists should be ranked or just, my favourite 50 Beatles songs, in no particular order.

So, should they be ranked?

My argument would be that people's individual contribution lists are not ranked, but then a ranked list is compiled from the individual contributions. As more people contribute, you get a clearer view of where things are.

That makes sense.

Okay, everybody, from now on, you don't need to rank the songs. Just give us your top 50 in no particular order. Thank you.

Did I insert myself into this without even asking or officially becoming part of it? Sorry...
