Wow, @ivejusteenafaceo! Thank you so much for proving me wrong! I really thought this was dead and gone! Is there any chance if your sending the full results to one of the mods just in case...?

They wouldn't jump over you in revealing them, but it would be nice to have them backed up.

I've got them backed up on multiple computers as well as on Google Drive, so I doubt I'll lose them again. 

If you want you can share the google doc with some of the other active members or a moderator so that in case of emergency you got other people to help you.

Probably a good thing we were all dead as their conversations are painful to read at times.

I have the file. I will back it up a few places too.

No, I will not take bribes to give out the list before Faceo posts the results. I'm not even going to peek.

Pretty undecipherable too with half of the conversation gone.

I am sorry to have nagged, @IveJustSeenAFaceo. I just thought it made sense for the forum to have a copy somewhere.

How often do you hope to reveal results from here on?

I'm not sure. I think once a day is a bit too fast, plus I'm not sure I'll have access to a computer every day. Probably every 2-7 days is a safe bet.

Thank God it wasn't sent to me. I want no part of that hit-by-a-bus curse Nasty just laid at Faceo's doorstep. Look both ways when crossing the street, AG and Faceo!

I emailed @IveJustSeenAFaceo this morning to see when he is going to post the next part of the list. He told me that his computer got a virus so he can't post right now. We will give him a few more days to try to get it worked out. If he can't post, I will add the next 10 songs.

I realized that we have all the data required to determine how the group ranks the albums.  The algorithm is simple - take the average ranking of the songs on each album and the group's favorite albums will be ranked from lowest average (favorite album) to highest average (least favorite).

for example, suppose that...

Abbey Road has 3 songs, ranked 4, 25, and 70.  Sgt. Pepper 's has 4 songs ranked 2, 23, 55, and 11. Average song rating for Abbey Road is 33, average song ranking for Pepper's is 47.5.  Therefore the voters rank Abbey Road higher than Pepper's. 

I think it would be interesting to see the results.  After all, we do love ranking things  ;)

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day

If Ahhh Girl puts up the list, will she add her thoughts about the songs like Faceo?

To quote one of Zig's favorite lines "That sounds too much like work." I'll just post the list and let you all take it from there.

I'm here. Next 10!

130. Wait (Solid song, pretty unremarkable, but I like it)
129. Think For Yourself (This one I'm a bit more disappointed about. I really like this song, especially the fuzz tone)
128. Sun King (another section of the Abbey Road Medley. Very relaxing, until Mean Mr. Mustard hits like a ton of bricks)
127. Magical Mystery Tour (another one I really like. It's fun)
126. I Need You (absolutely gorgeous volume swells from the guitar on this one)
125. Your Mother Should Know (This one is another fun one. Love the vocals from Paul here)
124. Yellow Submarine (this doesn't surprise me, due to most hardcore Beatles fans disliking it, but it's one of their most famous songs if not THE most famous, and I'm definitely a bit disappointed to see it outside the top 100)
123. Doctor Robert (I really like this one, drug related lyrics and all)
122. Any Time At All (One of the first Beatles songs I really loved, and quite possibly my favorite from AHDN )
121. All I've Got To Do (kinda meandering, though solid. Definitely an early song though)

Didn't expect All I've Got To Do end up higher than Think For Yourself (I love that fuzz tone too. It's cool) and I Need You . Kind of surprised at where Yellow Submarine ended up as well, I mean, I know most of us don't like it a lot, but it's a classic!

Man, reading this thread just makes me think that all my favorites will end up way down the list and all the ones that I don't like will make the top ten.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

Ditto to both.
