If I’m right by my deductions, then that must mean WMGGW is in the top 5 (woohoo). My top 3 Beatle songs; Norwegian Wood , Dear Prudence and WMGGW have fared very well in this.

Wow, i didn’t know it was this popular! I love it, I’m pretty sure I gave it a ten, I guess I assumed their later songs would be more well liked.

I’m surprised Tomorrow Never Knows is this high, i would’ve expected it to be somewhere in the 30’s or 40’s, same with Ticket To Ride .  

I’m not that surprised. It’s a heavy duty song.

I’m not really surprised with any of these songs. They are all popular and big songs.

Before I reveal the top 5 songs, I’d just like to thank everyone who voted:heartfor everyone! 

Ok, enough pre talk. In we go

5 (236, 9.08) While My Guitar Gently Weeps
4 (229*, 9.16) Abbey Road Medley
3 (230*, 9.2) Strawberry Fields Forever
=1 (231*, 9.24) A Day In The Life
=1 (231*, 9.24) I Am The Walrus

These songs (and selection of songs) are so popular I’m not surprised that they’ve ended up in the top 5. I will, however, say that I was the only person not to give any of the top 5 songs a 10. 81 tens were given, and the mediocre While My Guitar Gently Weeps received most – 18. This makes WMGGW the song with the most 10s, too. 

Again, thank you all – and see you again in a year or two!

I don’t know what you’re seeing @sir walter raleigh but I’ve been updating the entire list after every round of scores, so the full list is already there.

I assumed A Day In The Life and Strawberry Fields Forever would finish joint first. Did I Am The Walrus get a better score than last year? (I wasn’t on this site then mccartney-shrug_01_gifahdn_george_06) @TheHoleGotFixed

I Am The Walrus is Number 1?!?!? I mean it’s a great song but I don’t think it’s No. 1 material.

 

Also, @The Hole Got Fixed WMMG mediocre? I’ll fight you m8!

How did the Abbey Road medley beat While My Guitar Gently Weeps . Besides that, great list.

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

Ah yes, I forgot to say fair play to AHGF, truly great work and well done on running this. 

 

I look forward to the next one in 3 years time and I’ll light a candle for the poor soul who has to manage it.

Abbey Road Medley should be number one.  No other song besides Sexy Sadie is even close.

I am really happy to see Abbey Road Medley in the top 5 as well!  paul-mccartney-thumb_gifpaul-mccartney-thumb_gifIt’s endlessly listenable.  “A Day In The Life ” definitely deserves to be near the top too.  The 3 others, although I love them all, would not have sniffed my top 5.  By no stretch of the imagination is “I Am The Walrus ” the best Beatles song, nor is “While My Guitar Gently Weeps ” a top 5 Beatles song.  I’m sure I gave them all 10s though!  Maybe eightysomething 10s was a few too many to give on my part?!? mccartney-shrug_01_gif Will have to rethink my strategy for next time if I want to see “Hold Me Tight ” in the top 5.

Thank you, @The Hole Got Fixed, for all of your effort! john-lennon-salute_gifjohn-lennon-salute_gif  I’ve really enjoyed reading the differing opinions here.heart
