Hmmm... the Abbey Road medley? Idk I guess it was on the forum poll ranking but is it fair to put seven songs against others? It will wipe out like five rounds before it even gets the possibility of getting defeated and we're already voting for those tracks separately.

I thought about removing the medley and keeping the individual tracks or vice versa. Number one seeds should be a juggernaut, but I agree the medley may be a bit too much. Also i know that that picture is really hard to read and I apologize. The next round will be much clearer. 

I mean, if you ask me, Golden Slumbers and You Never Give Me Your Money are jaggernauts on their owna-hard-days-night-paul-5

My heart aches for some of the songs I didn't choose in this round. Such good music tossed aside.

  

The last few rounds have been especially tough! Its only going to get more difficult

Let’s see how far they make it. billy-preston_01_gif

Very exciting round. Polythene Pam and I’m Down both advanced on tiebreakers. We also see major hits such as Yesterday and Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds being eliminated in the first round. 

88C8452E-1852-480F-A87C-AE3493E7912B.jpegImage Enlarger

Next round goes like this

4 In My Life vs. 24 Your Mother Should Know

17 You’re Gonna Lose That Girl vs. 16 I Should Have Known Better

25 Good Morning Good Morning vs. I Saw Her Standing There

23 Hello Goodbye vs. 10 Back In the U.S.S.R

21 Savoy Truffle vs. 12 I’m So Tired

27 Love You To vs 6 Day Tripper

19 Across The Universe (Album) vs. 14 If I Fell

31 Blackbird vs. 2 Rain

  

In My Life

I Should Have Known Better

I Saw Her Standing There

Back In The USSR

Im So Tired - tough one, but I gotta go with this gem, plus I derive my display name from it. 

Day Tripper

Across The Universe - another tough one, but AtU is just phenomenal

Blackbird - I love Rain but Blackbird has to be by far the most underseeded track and I want to see it get the upset.

Not sure if it's 64 or 128 tracks but can't you substitute the next track down for the 'Medley' if it's deemed unsuitable? Would it matter that much if it was a straight swap? Or reshuffle the numbers if you have the time.

Doesn't matter to me either way if it's here or not.

I have an Idea. After this round we can do a vote on the songs that lost due to tiebreaker. The winner will replace the Medley as the #1 seed

Another exciting round. Rain advanced over Blackbird in a tiebreaker therefore we must vote between

Here There & Everywhere

Lady Madonna

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

and Blackbird

Please vote for one of these songs to replace the Abbey Road Medley in the tournament, as well as the next section.  

1 Strawberry Fields Forever vs. 32 She’s Leaving Home

15 Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except For Me and My Monkey vs.  18 I Feel Fine

11 Come Together vs 22 Please Please Me

7 I Want To Hold Your Hand vs 26 Octopus Garden

9 Get Back (Single) vs. We Can Work It Out

5 Penny Lane vs 28 Doctor Robert

15 I’m Only Sleeping vs 20 Don’t Let Me Down (wow this is a really tough one)

If I'm reading that ^ correctly, it means we get to repick a song that has been previously cut so that it has a second chance? If so Blackbird .

 

1. Strawberry Fields Forever - it was the forum's favourite for a reason.

2. I Feel Fine - that guitar is iconic

3. Come Together

4. I Want To Hold Your Hand

5. We Can Work It Out - Really bloody difficult this one but we get the single version for GB so I'm holding out for that

6. Penny Lane - I don't really like DR

7. Don't Let Me Down - IOS has gorgeous harmonies but then again so does DLMD 😉

8. Here Comes The Sun - AYNIL is great but really sloppy, HCTS is great and beautiful- no contest <3

Tiebreak

'Lady Madonna ', 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds ' or 'Blackbird '? 'Blackbird '. I voted for it the first time around and now the second. 

Next Round

'SFF' - No contest.

'IFF' - Such a great track. The intro, Ringo's beats to get the song back up and running. It's my 15:55 alarm and I never tire of it.

'CT' - Really difficult to pick one over the other but 'CT' as, well, I don't really know why, it just does. 

'IWTHYH' - Iconic and rightly so. Holds up every time.

'WCWIO' - The driving nature of 'Get Back makes it such a good song but 'WCWIO' is way above it.

'DR' - Arguably the weakest track on 'Revolver ' but I'd rather listen to that than 'PL' which is just dull. John calls Robert Bob a handful of times and I like Paul's harmonies a lot.

'DLMD' - One of my faves. John's vocal, the harmonies, the track feel.

'HCTS' - 'AYNIL' is a very enjoyable song to listen to whenever it comes on but 'HCTS' is such a great relaxing refreshing number. A narrow win.

 

[Have added the two I somehow missed out.]

The irony, I didn't vote for any of the tiebreak songs. Lady Madonna is my vote.

3 Here Come the Sun vs 30 All You Need Is Love

  

SFF definitely 

I Feel Fine . Monkey is Cool but IFF has Ringo on fire

Please Please Me . CT is ok, PPM is great

Octopus's Garden . The backing vocals clinch it.

We Can Work It Out . I always forget how good it is

Love em both. Have to pick one... Doctor Robert I guess

I'm Only Sleeping . The backwards guitar is so cleverjohn-lennon-salute_gif

Here Comes The Sun . Can't quite justify voting for AYNIL

For the tiebreaker I'll pick Here, There And Everywhere .

then:

- Strawberry Fields Forever

- I Feel Fine

- Please Please Me

- I Want To Hold Your Hand

- We Can Work It Out

- Penny Lane

- Don't Let Me Down

What about this one? I'm guessing we're voting for the single version and not the rooftop/naked version right? Because the Rooftop version of Don't Let Me Down is far and away so much better than the single version, and it would probably win my bracket. Even if this is the single version, I'll pick it over I'm Only Sleeping , but if it is the single version is not gonna last much longer in my bracket.

Lady Madonna for tie breaker

 

Strawberry Fields Forever - Duh

I Feel Fine - This song slaps

Please Please Me  - Eairly Beatles is best Bealtes

I Want To Hold Your Hand - The German version is better though.

We Can Work It Out - Life is too short not to pick this

Penny Lane - DR is a middle song

I’m Only Sleeping - This is a top song

Here Come the Sun - All You Need Is Love is the worst Beatles song to ever exist. Kill it with fire.

- Here Comes The Sun

  

I presume they are the regular standard commercial versions as first released with distinctions made between the few variations where applicable (eg 'Get Back ' single and album mixes). To be including any of the future alternates would only complicate matters.

Tiebreaker: Blackbird

1. Strawberry Fields Forever (yeah this was a pretty easy choice to make ~let me take you doooowwwwnnnn~)

2.  I Feel Fine (*feedback* + iconic guitar + Ringo going ham + overall bop)

3. Come Together (a difficult choice. love PPM but CT wins out in the end)

4. I Want To Hold Your Hand (another hard bop-- the song that won over America)

5. We Can Work It Out (*chef's kiss*)

6. Penny Lane (not too partial to PL but I'll take it over DR any day) 

7. Don't Let Me Down (this was a really really hard one because I love both songs-- IOS has the cool backwards guitar and overall is just a cool song, but DLMD has those heartwrenching vocals so yeah gonna go with that)

8. Here Comes The Sun (gorgeous! wholesome! wonderful!....no contest against AYNIL!)

Here There And Everywhere - what if there's a tie in the tiebreaker? a-hard-days-night-george-10

1. SFF

2. IFF (I'm sensing a pattern)

3. PPM ("without which it may not have been")

4. IWTHYH

5. GB

6. PL (a song I quite like, seemingly alone)

7. DLMD (it's all about that bass)

8. HCTS

 

I have a suggestion... after the next seeding, we should all post our votes as spoilers.  I love seeing everyone's picks, but I hate that they might somehow influence mine.  If they are posted under spoilers, I can go back after my picks are posted and see what you all have to say. 

Everybody knows there's nothing doing Everything is closed it's like a ruin

Let It Be , Get Back , and maybe Across The Universe have two unique versions in the bracket. I’m not sure if the single ATU made the cut, but for LIB there is a big seeding difference between the album and single. The Single has already been eliminated whereas the album version will probably go far. If the rest of the bracket is a success and people enjoy it, I would run a non-canon Bracket or even a solo-career bracket. This doesn’t have to be a one and done. 

Tiebreaker: Here There And Everywhere

@Teddy Salad if there is a tie in the tiebreaker we’ll have to improvise. I think i’d probably remove my vote and revote with a smaller field, or add any new tiebreaker songs and do another voting round. 

SSF - like mmm says its like picking between my favorite child and a bunch kf trash in the dumpster

I Feel Fine - Maybe the best guitar riff of all time

Please Please Me - I think Come Together is a great song but its way less exciting than PPM

Octopus Garden - Stellar guitar song plus having the harmonies through the leslie gives such an insane underwater effect

Get Back - Billy Preston RIPS on this song one of the greatest and breifest keyboard solos ever

Doctor Robert - I love the ‘well well well’ section.  Blows me away every time 

I’m Only Sleeping - This is easily the hardest choice for me so far. Both songs are so great for such different reasons. I’m going to have to go for the Revolver track, I’ve got great memories with it. 

Here Comes The Sun - George is a straight up master of his craft, sneaking up on the rest of the band and banging out their most iconic song
