Why not? You're a member of the forum, after all...

Looks like many of the songs are quite close!

Wow, some tight matchups there in the first round. Most were decided by one vote. This will be fun I hope we can get as many people as possible in on the voting. 

Here is the next section of the bracket in the round of 128 as well as last rounds winners.

Ugh of course I Want You won...a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Bracket 1: A Hard Day's Night . I'm Happy... isn't a brilliant song but it's ok. AHDN beats it.

Bracket 2: I Want To Tell You . How could you not like such a cool song?

Bracket 3: I've Just Seen A Face . Very, very close, found it very hard to choose this one.

Bracket 4: You've Got To Hide Your Love Away . Don't like Within You Without You (sorry George), this is an easy one

Bracket 5: Got To Get You Into My Life . Another tough one, Long Long Long is much better musically but Got To Get puts a smile on my faceahdn_george_08

Bracket 6: For No One . French Horn ftw!

Bracket 7: The Fool On The Hill . The single version of Let it Be isn't the best version of an already good but not great song.

Bracket 8: Ticket To Ride . Mother Nature's Son is cool and all but Ticket To Ride is an absolute bop

Why the hell did The Word win that's such a blah song compared to Can't Buy Me Love , yiz are all freaks!!

 

1. A Hard Day's Night , which is really cruel because I do like IHJTD as it's so cute.

2. Two Of Us - lovely song and I don't care much for IWTTY

3. I've Just Seen A Face - it's in my top 5 Beatles' songs, absolute bop of a tune, leaves practically everything in the dust.

4. You've Got To Hide Your Love Away - really love this folksy track, probably in my top 10 Beatles' songs.

5. Got To Get You Into My Life - happy, cheery

6. For No One - one of my favourite Beatle songs to sing, it's trickier than you think.

7. The Fool On The Hill - purely because the single version of LIB is trash compared to the album version

8. Ticket To Ride - I prefer Julia to MNS and I really like TTR so would prefer to have both of those over MNS

 

George got an absolute slaughtering in my votes, I'm sorry George paul-mccartneypaul-mccartneypaul-mccartney

Oi, The Word was my favourite song all of last year - and iirc it's Dark Overlord's favourite too.

It's hard to read, can you please put the options in plain text like

 

A hard days night vs I'm Happy Just To Dance With You

 

It would be easier to see and to vote with.

A little tighter race this round.  Most of these songs lie in the mid-range of my appreciation, so the match-ups are fairly equal in my mind.

1. AHDN ...if for no other reason than Clang!

2. 2...one of my faves from LIB

3. HTnE...maybe a nod to Revolver over Help ! more than the relative merits of the songs

4. You've Got To Hide Your Love Away ...unfortunate "bias" against WYWY that lingers from when I was a kid and not musically open-minded yet 

5. Got To Get...top 20 song for me 

6. 4No1... simple heartfelt message 

7. Fool...a toss-up

8. TTR...stop worrying!

Ok I took the time and made the bracket's text myself. Now for my vote.

I'm Happy Just To Dance vs A Hard Day's Night

I Want To Tell You vs Two Of Us

I've Just Seen A Face vs Here There & Everywhere

Within You, Without You vs You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

Long, Long,Long vs Got To Get You Into My Life

Sexy Sadie vs For No One

Let It Be (Single) vs Fool On The Hill

Mother Nature's Son vs Ticket To Ride

 

I'm Happy Just To Dance - Such catchy, such happy. Good

I Want To Tell You - TOU is kinda overrated. Both aren't the best Beatles songs

I've Just Seen A Face - HTE sounds more like later Paul and I rather like the early stuff.

You've Got To Hide Your Love Away - Tough choice but YGTHYLA is ahead of it's time.

Got To Get You Into My Life - Another random George song that I constantly forget is gonna lose vs most anything for me.

For No One - FNO is one of the greatest songs to ever exist

Fool On The Hill - The anthology version is better though

Ticket To Ride - Closer than most but I generally like the early sound better.

1. A Hard Day's Night  

2. Two of Us 

3. Here, There And Everywhere (this was a really tough one because they're both in my like top favorite Beatles songs but I gotta go with HT&E, she's just slightly more dear to me than IJSAF)

4. You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (I really do love emo Bob Dylan Lennon)

5. Got To Get You Into My Life (don't get me wrong I love Long Long Long and I think its a very underrated and gorgeous song bc I'm a sucker for the slow sappy stuff, see #3, but like GTGYIML is such a wonderful song overall and is just so cheery and Paul's getting all worked up over how much he loves weed which is relatable ngl but anyhoo)

6. For No One (masterpiece. period.)

7. The Fool On The Hill (I almost said LIB but then I was like "Oh its the single version oof" and also FOTH is a blast and I like those flutes *blasts recorder*) 

8. Ticket To Ride (feck I feel bad bc MNS is like one of my all-time favorites but TTR just beats it out just for overall song quality) 

"....When I cannot sing my heart, I can only speak my mind...." 

"....This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around...."

1. A Day In The Life -  I'd be surprised if anyone picked Michelle tbh

2. I've Got A Feeling - nonsense bop

3. Lady Madonna - groovy dance tune

4. And Your Bird Can Sing - don't practically care for it that much but it's better than MMT

5. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds - another one I don't have strong preference for but it's better than I'm Down

6. Help !- Although I adore FMTY, I'm sorry 🙁

7. Hey Bulldog - THE BASS, THE BASS

8. Yesterday - it's a classic for a reason
