Ive seen several brackets made in different online forums, and I figured I run one for the Beatles Bible. I’ll take the top 64 Beatles songs from the forum ranks and seed them into a bracket, and have people post their votes each day as the rounds progress. I was thinking we could do it with 128 songs instead of 64 to leave for room for underdogs. Let me know if you’re interested, and I’ll get it up and running. 

Edit:

Here is the full Bracket for anybody that wants to fill out their own. 

 

And here are the results to the inaugural Beatles Bible Bracket Challenge!

May u put this in plain text

 

And let's go

1. I'm A Loser . Beatles For Sale is so underrated and this is one of the best on the album.

2. Can't By Me Love. I GIVE YOU ALL I GOT TO GIVE

3. Get Back . I can never remember Yer Blues

4. Nowhere Man . This song is like a hot knife threw butter.

5. And I Love Her . This song brainwashed me, I first didn't like it much but then it grew until it exploded my brain.

6. Think For Yourself . The End is ok.

7. I Want You. Hey Jude is super overrated

8. Tomorrow Never Knows . Hardest choice both are great

 

Oh fudge probably gonna lose all the brackets oh well.

If you want to participate in the first round I’ll leave it open a little while longer before Tallying the votes and moving to the next section of the Bracket

I found a website that does tournament bracketing for you, list of The Beatles cannon are easily available online but you'd have to scrap the initial one you made if you want to do an online version that is easy to track people's reactions.

I was translating it into an excel spreadsheet, since the seeds are based on the Forum rankings which took a while to create. i’m still figuring out the best option, maybe once this round ends and there are 64 songs instead of 128 it will be easier to use an online bracket maker.
