There's also a very psychedelic version on a bootleg I've got somewhere that is really cool.

My votes are in.

I didn't have my 2015 votes for 11 songs.

Biggest winners since the last time I voted: Rain and I Am The Walrus .

Falling the most were: Let It Be [single] and Hold Me Tight (I wonder if mmm's rants have had an impact on my thinking on this one)

Maybe you've come to the obvious  realisation that 'Hold Me Tight ' is utter garbage and deserves to be taken to a nuclear wasteland and discarded. 

 

My results for 2015 are on my old laptop, if I can get it working I'll send them along with love From Me To You .

And if you can't get the laptop working properly, mmm, do you want me to register a vote for you with just one song scored - Hold Me Tight (given a 10, obviously....blue-meanie)

 

A brief teaser - some songs have changed rank considerably since 2015 so far...

And seeing as one week has gone by since I said that, it's now 3 weeks to go!  

And my maths tells me that we now have 2 weeks to go! 'Thank you' to those who have voted, and 'what are you waiting for?' To those who haven't!

@The Hole Got Fixed - Thanks for setting this up. If/when you send my confirmation PM, there is no need to alert me that I left two entries unrated. Since they are not official track titles that meet the entry criteria, it seemed silly to vote for them in this particular poll.

This poll is identical in content to the previous Canon poll, @Zig. Nothing has been added.

Maybe we will do a voting round that has 3 ratings: yeah, meh, ick. I wonder where each song would fall in that scale.

No problem Zig!

QuarryMan said in the 2017 non-canon thread
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.  

 But as long as you were consistent throughout voting, that doesn't matter!

So I just had someone vote with a username that isn't actually a username, and I have a suspicion someone used their real name. 

So if whoever just voted (101 minutes ago) could please PM me, I can sort this muddle out!

Thanks!

 

I'll also use this opportunity to give my 1 week to go reminder.

I'm begging on my bended knees, if those of you who haven't voted yet could only listen to my pleas... There are still a number of very active users who haven't voted yet. I implore you,

If you haven't voted yet, consider this. You don't need to vote for each selection. If you want, you can just rate your favorite 5, 10, 47 or any number of them. If you don't rate a song, it's the same as giving it the lowest possible rating anyway. It seems to me that would still suit the purpose of the poll which is to see what the consensus favorites really are. 

I hope that makes it easier for those of you on the fence. It looks like no fun at all. Vote now.

Not exactly. This time around, I'm counting votes by average, not by aggregate, so the results are more accurate. This means, if you leave a song blank, the only thing that happens is that I let you know, in case it was a mistake.

You had me fooled for a second there...stuart-sutcliffe

I will show aggregate scores, number of people who didn't vote for the song, and averages, but I will sort by averages to reduce the impact of songs not being voted on by anyone who didn't vote for a particular song!john-lennon-salute_gif

Voting closes tomorrow (my time), but I need to actually establish a deadline: This is how long you have to vote
