Are the Love bonus tracks still available on iTunes. If they're not, we could try asking if anyone on the forum has these bonus tracks.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Let's ask in the meantime while I go on the hunt for them:

Does anyone here have a copy of the two Love iTunes exclusive tracks (Girl and The Fool On The Hill )?

You can listen to those tracks for free when you sign in to Deezer (the basic version not the  premium version it's basically the same as Spotify). There are also the Polydor records available.

The following people thank Martha for this post:

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Well, what do you know! If you don't want to stream via Deezer (well found Martha), I can point you in the direction of an mp3! (of the Love iTunes exclusives). @Ron Nasty

Amazingly enough, you can download the two exclusive iTunes tracks from iTunes. 

It may not matter to the list but it should be noted that 'Revolution ' and 'Back In The U.S.S.R.' are complete on the DVD-Audio and from iTunes whereas they are edited on the CD.

Out out of interest, when will voting go live and when will voting end?

So, the voting form is complete. I have spent the last couple of days working hard on it. It just needs double-checking.

It would seem a good idea for a live link to be posted on 1 June.

I would suggest voting is open until either the end of the month, or for six weeks, though am happy to see discussion on that.

Yay!

I would suggest six weeks, because 425 songs is a lot to go through in a month.

Can the voting form be filled in gradually (saved as you go on) or does it all have to be completed in one? If the later I doubt I have the time to sit down and go thru 400(?) songs and rate them.

You can only purchase them ('Girl' and 'The Fool On The Hill ') from iTunes, you cannot buy them anywhere else.

@Starr Shine? will know more about if that's an option that can be put in before the form is switched on, @meanmistermustard.

However, we did manage to accommodate those voting in stages during the last poll.

You can submit one, then submit another as long as you put your username on both.

So I would need to remember where I got to and wouldn't be able to revise earlier scores? There is no way I have the time to do this in one sitting.

A live link to the form has been added to the first post, with a few comments.

This is the link.

It should be working.

Is there not a problem in titling some of the tracks the same even if there is a number next to them which is linked to something or other that I cannot remember?

Can't the source be added so it's easier to differentiate when voting?

My suggestion, @meanmistermustard, would be to take a copy of either the A-Z or Chronological (the one to which the numbers apply) list, and score that before putting the scores into a form. However, as I showed in the Canon Poll, with more than one person, and which I remember included you, I was always ready to provide copies of what they'd done, as well as being able to point to those they'd missed. Very happy to provide you with a copy of your votes up until an hour before voting has closed, and make any alterations you want, as we will for anybody else.

I hope this helps. The only other way to do this would be to have everyone log into the form using a Google Account, and I felt that would exclude people who were uncomfortable with that.

I would rather not make the poll only available to those prepared to sign into it.

As to adding further information to the list, there are two lists that contain all the information, the A-Z and Chronological (marked by the numbers). You pile too much detail into the form, and that makes the form confusing. Streamline and ask people to reference the thread lists, or pile everything into the form and have people suggest you've overcomplicated? I decided to keep it basic.

I'll happily complicate should that be desired.

Not sure why or how it's more complicated having the voting form read

A Taste Of Honey ('Pop Go The Beatles' #6 - 23/7/63)
A Taste Of Honey ('Easy Beat' - 23/6/63)
A Taste Of Honey ('Pop Go The Beatles #3' - 18/6/63)
A Taste Of Honey ('Pop Go The Beatles #13' - 10/9/63)
A Taste Of Honey ('Side By Side' - 13/5/63)

instead of

A Taste Of Honey [BBC radio session] (096)
A Taste Of Honey [BBC radio session] (107)
A Taste Of Honey [BBC radio performance] (120)
A Taste Of Honey [BBC radio session] (130)
A Taste Of Honey [BBC radio session] (169)
 and having to scroll thru and consult a separate list to find what it is but hey ho.

Presumably because he wants to be a little more specific. Also, why are you voting in alphabetical order instead of chronological, nothing wrong with it, it's just weird because I would think that it makes more sense to use chronological order.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.
