Only posting this as I don't trust the PM system. 

@The Hole Got Fixed, I have sent you a PM with my votes in the form of an excel file via my Google drive.  Any issues, like you don't receive it, let me know. 

 

Anyone who didn't vote please do so. It took me about 6 minutes (after a day of searching, wondering where my last vote was - I have every other piece of electronic paper from the last poll bar my actual vote).

Just voted as well. 🙂

If I hadn't marked the deadline red in my calendar, I swear I would have missed it in the midst of all the business. And many thanks to @The Hole Got Fixed also from my side!

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

The system worked perfectly, thanks!a-hard-days-night-george-10

Yep, with fractionally over 2 minutes left, you got yours in! Thanks to all 26 legitimate voters.

I'll try to get the first batch of results out as soon as I can (I'm not promising anything...)

G day @The Hole Got Fixed, I definitely think it's a great time to run a new Canon Poll. My rankings have gone through some changes since the last poll in 2018. apple01

I was thinking the same thing last week actually, @sigh butterfly . Technically the non-Canon poll is ongoing, so @Ron Nasty will need to advise whether we should start a 2021 Canon poll or not.

I'm more than happy to run it, though.

That's true Holey. @Ron Nasty are you ok with putting the non-Canon poll on hiatus for a few months?

Holey and I are having a Zoom chat in a couple of hours to discuss polls, @sigh butterfly. We should have some news after that.

We have come to the conclusion that the best way forward is to finish the non-canon poll, and RN has asked me to help him finish it. 

We will keep part one and part two open until the end of the month for those who never voted - we will release the results from these at the start of February.

We will open part 3 for voting at the start of February. We will aim to have the full results - from all three parts - released by the end of March, or not much later.

 

As for the canon poll @sigh butterfly - I will aim to release it sometime in April or May.

Sounds good!apple01

I bet the song versions in Part 3 of the non-Canon poll will be more familiar to the forum voters. ahdn_paul_02a-hard-days-night-john-7a-hard-days-night-george-9a-hard-days-night-ringo-7billy-preston_01_gifgeorge-martin
