Sadly, including myself, just 11 people chose to take part this time.

Thank you a lot for counting the votes and giving the results so early @Ron Nasty!apple01

It’s sad that only so few have participated but from the ones who have participated and I have talked to about the poll I know that it means a lot to them (and to me as well). My deepest appreciation for all your effort and let’s hope one can draw at least halfway representative results out of the votes that were made.

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

I feel so bad for not voting, i was thinking about it but chose not to because i only know the Apple canon Beatles songs.

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

I discovered lots of new music from doing this. For that, I am incredibly grateful!

Although only 11 voted, far more will view the list, and I hope many of them enjoy discoveries or re-listens.

I’m to blame a bit since lately I’ve been feeling rather apathetic and didn’t vote.

I am looking at the first batch being ready for publication towards the end of this week, beginning of next, @The Hole Got Fixed.

It’s just working out where the splits will be, and checking the order, etc. Juggling too many balls right now!

First results will be out by this time next week though.  

I’m sorry to always be the one reviving this thread… but…

I want the results please!beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Really don’t want to be impatient but are there enough votes now to release the results? Maybe at least the ones from Anthology or Love?

Thanks again for doing this project, it was really great fun to listen to all these tracks!

I’ve just voted. I think my voting, for anyone who might view it, may come across as tactical, and I must admit I perhaps overrated songs I think are deserving of more attention and underrated those I don’t like that much.

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

@Ron Nasty Mentioning you in the Jeopardy Race thread reminded me of this thread, which is *gasp in disbelief* nearing 2 years old… Any chance of getting results or will a 2019 poll have to conducted?apple01

Should we redo this again? Two years ago we got rather a low turnout but with many of the younger posters here being very active in the community, I’m sure we could get at least 20 people to complete the thing.

I could probably commit to doing this. I need to revisit the catalogue anyway.

It was highly dispiriting last time we tried it. People found the size of the list too off-putting, and we’ve had the Pepper and WA deluxes since, which would need adding in. Maybe it would prove more manageable and encourage more people to join in if we split it some (maybe 1958-1963; 1964-1966; 1967-1970 + miscellaneous).

I’m still disappointed with myself that I lost the motivation on this last time it was tried.

That could be a good idea.

Perhaps do it in 2 or 3 month batches, with roughly 4 years of content at a time? Would that attract more of an audience?

I like the idea of splitting it into batches, and we could make each batch a poll with its own results, and then go on to the next one once it is finalized.
