I'm going to shuffle on Spotify and list 5 songs now for the next ranking! (Although I don't know how we choose who picks the next 5 going forward?)

 

Twist And Shout

Don't Let Me Down

Penny Lane

Within You Without You

A Hard Day's Night

  

5. Don't Let Me Down - Hard to say, something about that song never fully connected with me. When it comes up in a playlist or on Past Masters or at a Beatles tribute concert I'm always a bit like "Okay, I guess it has to be there, but I'm more interested in what comes next". Needless to say it's still a good song!

 

4. Twist And Shout - Together with Long Tall Sally my favourite cover song of the Beatles. It's energetic and a cool rocker.

 

3. A Hard Days Night - Catchy and iconic, with the vocal switch between Lennon and McCartney as a highlight!

 

2. Penny Lane - One of the best songs ever, Beautiful melody, beautiful slightly baroque instrumentation, the perfect companion piece to Strawberry Fields Forever .

 

1. Within You Without You - One of the best songs ever, Harrison on creative fire. Strange, spooky, touching, wonderful, masterpiece, shivers...

Well, I did this before, but I feel like doing it again. I have 5 songs, and you have the option to vote for your favourite. 

The songs are:

I Want To Tell You

Baby You're A Rich Man

Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Good Morning, Good Morning

Piggies

After enough users have voted their favorite, I will tally up the results, and see which song is beloved by the most fans. Use your opinion, not others, and you can write your feelings on the song if you want as wellpaul-mccartney-thumb_gif.

And, like last time, when there are enough answers, someone else can do 5 songs.

How about we make it like the baker's dozen. In this game, if you make the 8th answer, you choose 5 songs to have others vote for. You can do songs other people did before, but you cannot have 3 or more already used songs in one poll.

The reason I'm making a second one is because the first one went off topic, and I wanted to make a more organized one.

Good luck voting!

Buy "Riding so high: The Beatles and drugs" right here: https://www.amazon.ca/Riding-S.....038;sr=8-1

I've read it, and it's great!  

And don't forget to vote blue jay way (and rocky raccoon) higher up on the 2021 Beatles song poll. If you don't wanna vote it, that's fine.

Yes, this is similar to the Baker's Dozen, but not similar enough that I will take this thread down.

Moderators can move this to forum games if people have loads of fun with this.

@Magill I have moved your posts to this thread, because we do not need multiple threads on the same topic as it keeps the forum neater and easier to navigate. As said on page 1:

Ahhh Girl said
^ We could deleted the lists of songs in the thread title so that it would just read "Which of these songs are your favorite?"

Anyone want to second this idea?

  

Implying this thread can keep being used with any number of combinations of different songs.

Thanks, @The Hole Got Fixed. I'm pretty sure I mentioned that you can move the most. I forgot all about this one.

anyway,

5. Twist And Shout : Great song. These songs are all too good, though! 

4. Don't let me down: I really like it!

3. Within You Without You : IF THEY ONLY KNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEW!

2. Penny Lane : It's worth more than a penny!

1. A Hard Day's Night : I'm about to buy a 12 string guitar because of this song!

Now, lets see you rank I Want To Tell You , Baby You're A Rich Man , Happiness Is A Warm Gun , Good Morning Good Morning , and Piggies

@sir walter raleigh Only Beatles or solo songs can be used, but I like the Zeppelin one the best. By the way, they won the trial against spirit recently. Oh, and R.I.P. Eddie van halen.
