Into the top 50 we go!

=52 (195*, 7.8) Two Of Us
=52 (195*, 7.8) If I Fell
=52 (195*, 7.8) Because
=52 (195*, 7.8) Carry That Weight
=52 (195*, 7.8) She Loves You
=49 (197*, 7.88) I’m Only Sleeping
=49 (197*, 7.88) All My Loving
=49 (197*, 7.88) Lovely Rita
=47 (198*, 7.92) Hey Jude
=47 (198*, 7.92) Got To Get You Into My Life

 

I’m quite surprised that She Loves You and Hey Jude didn’t get in the top 20, if I’m honest. Maybe they’ve got what I’ll dub ‘Yesterday syndrome’ – they’re so popular, they’ve lost their gloss. A bit annoyed Lovely Rita and Got To Get You Into My Life aren’t higher, but a very good selection of songs here. 52 tens were given, and Hey Jude got the most with 8.

I’m really surprised Rita is up there actually. It’s more popular than I thought…

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Surprised to see Lovely Rita , Carry That Weight and Because in the top 50.

I thought Hey Jude would be a lot higher.

I know I only posted 2 days ago, but I also know that I’ll be unable to for the next 5 days, so here’s this next round in advance:

=42 (200*, 8) I’m So Tired
=42 (200*, 8) You Never Give Me Your Money
=42 (200*, 8) Eleanor Rigby
=42 (200*, 8) Come Together
=42 (200*, 8) Lady Madonna
=38 (201*, 8.04) Get Back [album version]
=38 (201*, 8.04) You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away
=38 (201*, 8.04) Back In The USSR
=38 (201*, 8.04) Sgt. Pepper ‘s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)
=36 (202*, 8.08) Happiness Is A Warm Gun
=36 (202*, 8.08) She Said She Said

Some very, very good songs in this batch. The reprise, She Said, and Lady Madonna are all utterly fantastic songs, that IMO ever so slightly eclipse the other songs in this round. Not by much though (with the exception of Boredom Happiness Is A Warm Gun ). I realise that my opinion on HIAWG is very unpopular though – it completely annihilated any of the other song’s chances of getting top honour for this round, with 10 tens, and no other song came close to that. 51 tens were given in this round. Also note that the album version of Get Back has now appeared, but not the single version.

All good songs but I am not expecting many duds at this point. I don’t understand how the reprise is higher than Hey Jude

=33 (203*, 8.12) Get Back [single version]
=33 (203*, 8.12) Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
=33 (203*, 8.12) Girl
32 (204*, 8.16) Here, There And Everywhere
=29 (205*, 8.20) I Saw Her Standing There
=29 (205*, 8.20) With A Little Help From My Friends
=29 (205*, 8.20) Sgt Pepper ‘s Lonely Hearts Club Band
=27 (206*, 8.24) Something
=27 (206*, 8.24) I Want To Hold Your Hand
26 (208*, 8.32) And Your Bird Can Sing

 

My stance on Something should be widely known across the boards, but I’ll still say it: how the hell does it get into the top 30? It’s higher than @Ahhh Girl for goodness sake! Another note I have: And Your Bird Can Sing (beatlemaniacs_02_gif) was coming first after the first 10 voters, iirc. That made me a very happy hole!

64 tens were given, with Something and Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds getting the most (9 each).

Girl tied with Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds ? I’m glad Girl is so popular. 

One thing that’s always bugged me: the song titles appear in blue,all except for Girl. Why is that?

It has something with the way @Joe set up linking. Maybe he can give us a refresher.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 One reason was that ‘Girl’ as a word appears in more than one username. Were it to be linked to the song article, every time Ahhh Girl’s name appeared, or Beatlebug when she was Silly Girl, they would link, which could get confusing with mentions as well. Not all songs are linked. There are also problems with songs titles with brackets in, so Anna isn’t linked; while there are others, like Something , that only link when the word has a capital S – it still means it often links in conversations that aren’t relevant to the song as it can often be the first word of a sentence.

The majority of song titles are linked because they’re pretty much all that can be meant when using them, but a few don’t because of how common the use of the word or phrase is, or because brackets prevent it.

I thought Something would be higher to be honest. I would have guessed top 10-20 at least but top 30 isn’t a bad effort.

4 more batches of results to go – this one will be 10 songs, and the last 3 batches will be 5 songs each…

25 (217, 8.35) Nowhere Man
=21 (209*, 8.36) For No One
=21 (209*, 8.36) Day Tripper
=21 (209*, 8.36) Taxman
=21 (209*, 8.36) Paperback Writer
=18 (210*, 8.40) Dear Prudence
=18 (210*, 8.40) Penny Lane
=18 (210*, 8.40) Help !
=16 (213*, 8.52) The End
=16 (213*, 8.52) A Hard Day’s Night

 

The End received 13 tens… 70 were given overall. Honestly I really don’t think there are many surprises now – these last songs have to be very good to get an average of 8.5 from an entire forum – some of us (including myself…) were very hard markers, so anything above an 8 is a very, very good score, imo. I’m a touch surprised The End and Paperback Writer didn’t get higher – Paperback Writer deserves to be higher than =21st. In the last 15 remaining songs, only 6 scores of 1, 2, 3 or 4 were given. From 26 people, and 15 songs, these last few must be really good. Better than these latest songs?

Paperback Writer deserves to be higher than =21st”. I’d say the same about Day Tripper and Taxman , I love those. Can’t wait to see the rest of the results. It’s getting really good now beatlemaniacs_02_gif
