Thanks to the new voters. This poll will remain open until the morning, when it will be locked and replaced with the non-Canon Poll Part Two: 1964-1966.

  

GMT time? 

What's the buzz, tell me what's happening

Depends on when I wake up after what's been a tough and frightening day with the problems with my electric referenced elsewhere.

So RN, the all important question: did we end up with more votes than the 2017 attempt? iirc that's 11 to beat.a-hard-days-night-george-4

I really wanted to vote but never got around to making the playlist. Maybe in the future we could leave them open all year.

You do recall correctly, Holey, it was 11, not including mine. This time around, 12.

Myself, I don't see that as feasible, ExTex. "See you next January with the results," I don't believe would be welcomed by most.

However, knowing that you're not the only one who didn't vote because they felt they didn't have enough time, I propose leaving this poll open to new voters until the third part of the poll closes in seven or eight weeks, and flagging the result as it is as provisional. Those who have already voted will not be allowed to alter their vote, and I am unlikely to do the same with the second part of the poll as it's a much shorter list.

We shall see if anyone else decides to join in as the results start appearing over the weekend.

The second part of the poll is almost completed and will be up at some stage today.

Apologies for the delay, more-or-less killed my credit watching the concert Saturday.

Me too, I absolutely loved getting into the nitty gritty of my Beatles obsession. I suspect this spreadsheet and playlist will be much easier for me to make.

Awesome. That's great news that more people have voted now.beatlemaniacs_02_gif

I agree that leaving this part open for a while would be a good idea.

I guess I should stop reading Batman comics and watching Stanley Kubrick films and make a playlist soon.

have you talk to @Timothy about Batman, he got me onto some great comics when I mentioned Batman. I’m a really big Batman fan myself.

No, I haven’t. I’ve been a fan all my life but not a huge collector. Just got back into him after not really keeping up for a few decades. I sort of stopped around Killing Joke/Death in the Family/Dark Knight Returns time. Now I’m playing catch-up. Also into the 1940s stuff. Currently reading Bob Kane newspaper dailies.

If you need any more Batman comic recommendations, or are looking for a particular style of story, feel free to ask. I also like listening to Batman soundtracks (from movies, games, TV) as well. For a character without powers, his music is the most stirring and heroic.

This thread is The Beatles Bible 2020 non-Canon Poll Part One; not a discussion thread for Batman comics.

I thank you.

I finished making the playlist for poll one. I could swear you missed a song, but going back through I can't find it. Also, on my Star Club recordings sometimes there were two songs and only one was listed in the poll and I couldn't always figure out which one, so I just chose one (Till There Was You , maybe?)

Going to make playlist two and then start with that one.

No. It was A Taste Of Honey that had 2 live versions.

I’m up to the letter I. I have to say these songs are overall not as enjoyable as the proper albums.

About halfway through now. I’m rating these a bit lower overall than poll 2.
