There are a ton of apps/add-ons for browsers that download and convert youtube video's, just search "youtube download". Or you can use clipconverter which is as simple to use as it could possibly be.

 I think it'll go like this:

1. A Day In The Life (ADITL is nearly always number 1 on any "which is the best Beatles' song" poll so I'd say we'll be the same)

2. Here Comes The Sun

3. Strawberry Fields Forever (I prefer Penny Lane over SFF, personally).

@Wigwam

Thanks for that poll. I do prefer ours.

It would be fun to perform a META-ANALYSIS:

Look at multiple polls (as many as possible) and see what songs come up most often in the top 50 (or top 40, or top 30,...)

That might be the ultimate consensus.

Any song showing up on everyone's Top 10 for example would be a consensus "top 10 song" etc....

Yay! @Starr Shine? is on! The Top 3 will soon be revealed. So excited! Still hoping, against all the odds, that Revolution 9  will be #1!

SFF and ADitL was a very interesting battle. I, like many, expected ADitL to romp home. It was always close though, and ADitL was never in front. They were either tied or SFF was in front.

Actually, I tell a lie, very near the end of voting ADitL was in front by around seven points if I remember rightly, but it was false. The third to last person to vote voted in two stages. They did their vote, which covered the first half of the list, including ADitL, and said they'd do the rest later. The weekend before votes closed they still hadn't completed. AD40 and I had a discussion over what to do with their vote if they didn't do the second half before the poll closed. We decided it would be excluded if they didn't complete. Luckily they did, putting SFF back in front, and so we didn't need to go there.

I would like to thank @Starr Shine? for her huge contribution and help with this poll. If it is considered a success, much of that is down to her. Should she agree, I look forward to doing the non-Canon poll with her at the beginning of next year.

I do hope we have served the forum well with this poll, and have conducted it as we laid out in the first post over in the thread that set it up.

For myself, it has been a pleasure to do this for all my fellow beautiful Forumpudlians (and even the ugly ones among you a-hard-days-night-george-10).

I've enjoyed the ride, I hope you have too.

Huge thanks to all that took part, whether by voting or commenting along the way.

It's been fun!!!!

I think the most surprising thing is that SFF and ADITL did not get closer to 390 points.  Either a number of Forumpudlians thought they were not worthy of 10s, or a couple of us rated them really low.  That's some pretty harsh (or pretty determinedly contrarian) judging.  Oh well, as ASJ would say: vive la différence.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.
