1. Twist And Shout -- John's shredded vocals and energy really make this a hardcore BOP + the forever iconic "oooohhhh"s; arguably the sexiest Beatles song in my book (SHAKE IT UP BaaAAABbY NOW! paul-mccartney

2. Martha My Dear -- GB is a good song but c'mon MMD is about Paul's adorable doggo and thus it's one of the most wholesome songs in existence! Plus I really enjoy all the brass on the track and Paul's piano work, making it a bop 

3. I Will -- It's just so sweet and lovely and I can never get enough of it heart

4. Birthday -- what can I say? This song's a blast....aaannnnd now it's stuck in my head.....ahdn_paul_01

5. All My Loving -- Tough choice, but AML one of my top Beatles songs of all time; John's rhythm guitar work with those triplets are spectacular and overall it's a wholesome bop that I adore. Sorry ILTY, you're a great song from my favorite album but you just can't beat AML-- press F to pay respects ahdn_george_05

6. Taxman -- an excellent opener to an excellent album that's just dripping with George's wonderful cynicism and a feckin' banging and rippin' guitar solo from Paul 

7. Because -- ahdn_george_05heart

8. Norwegian Wood -- I wouldn't be surprised if this mofo came out on top in this bracket-- *chef's kiss* pure excellence!

Btw, was the tiebreak winner posted and I just didn't see it? a-hard-days-night-john-3

  

Nah it wasn't posted-- though I counted the tiebreaker votes myself (just because I was curious-- I'm not trying to take your job, swr, I swear!) and it seems there's a tie between Blackbird and HTE.....and if sir walter goes with his regular pattern of removing his vote in the event of a tie, then Blackbird would win, however, I cannot speak for him so there may be a surprising outcome-- who knows? a-hard-days-night-paul-4(besides the Bracketmaster, of course a-hard-days-night-george-10

and here are the winners. For the tiebreaker, the last round saw Penny Lane Advance in a tiebreaker, So we will try one of two things. 

edit: Do we just want Blackbird to advance or should we do another tiebreaker vote that includes Dr. Robert?

If we vote on the tiebreaker again and then have a tie in this round, we still have a dilemma. Why not wait until the current round is over and then re-do the tiebreak before round four? That way all possible tie-eliminated song can be considered.

sounds good to me. we can also do the first half of round four before the tiebreaker that way every song gets a chance to get back in. For now, just vote on the current round

Twist And Shout - It's simply better in almost every way.

Getting Better   - Close but this has the better lyrics.

I Will - Have never cared for 'WALH'

Sgt. Pepper (reprise) - It's a cracking tune whereas 'Birthday ' is going thru the motions.

I’m Looking Through You - A bit more lively but a toss of a coin.

She Came In Through The Bathroom Window - Taxman is great when listening to it but not a track I seek out often whereas 'SCITTBW' is a lot of fun.

I Me Mine - Love this so much. 

Old Brown Shoe - Due to how much fun it is but another toss of a coin.

Twist And Shout . Sorry George, TaS is such a bop

Getting Better . So different, yet so familiar. So good.

With A Little Help From My Friends a-hard-days-night-ringo-10ahdn_ringo_09a-hard-days-night-ringo-10ahdn_ringo_09a-hard-days-night-ringo-10RINGO!

Sgt. Pepper (reprise). Birthday is cool but the reprise is short and sharp, and to the point.

I’m Looking Through You. Gotta love the messiest song in the Beatles catalogue!

She Came In Through The Bathroom Window . The harmonies clinch it for me.

Because . Hard choice, but again, the harmonies clinch it for me

Old Brown Shoe . I started this bracket with a bop, imma end it with a bop too!
