Baby You’re A Rich Man - Such a good song. 'HS' is good when listening but it's not a difficult choice.

Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite - Such a fun, different kind of song. 

You Won’t See Me - One of my favourite 'RS' tracks and 'Pepper' is very ho-hum.

Happiness Is A Warm Gun - Brilliance v meh.

No Reply - One of my top five Beatles' songs

Paperback Writer - Cracking riff, great harmonies. '64 is another meh song when extracted from 'Pepper'.

Revolution 1 - I really like the laid-back vide in contrast to the single.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps - Two great George tracks but c'mon, the choice is not hard.

Bracket for the new page:

sir walter raleigh said 

29 Baby You’re A Rich Man vs. Helter Skelter

17 Glass Onion vs. 16 Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite

25 You Won’t See Me vs 8 Sgt. Peppers

23 Eight Days A Week vs 10 Happiness Is A Warm Gun

21 No Reply vs. 12 You Never Give Me Your Money

27 When I’m Sixty Four vs. 16 Paperback Writer

19 Revolution One vs. 14 Carry That Weight

31 The Inner Light vs. 2 While My Guitar Gently Weeps

  

My votes:

Baby You're A Rich Man , only because HS is a little too long

Glass Onion . Top 10 song I reckon

Sgt Peppers. French horns!

Eight Days A Week . It isn't HIAWG, so it wins

You Never Give Me Your Money

Paperback Writer . Paul being creative and succeeding.

Carry That Weight . ahdn_ringo_09, and also it isn't R1.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps . The Inner Light isn't quite good enough to get my vote

Another somewhat meh round with few standouts for me.

1. BYARM - might have gone HS before hearing Take 17 which I really love and dims the original release IMO

2. GO - love Kite but listen to me!

3. YWSM 

4. 8

5. YNGMYM - toughest choice in the round and I'm hoping for a tie here so the loser gets another chance

6. PW

7. CTW - not even close for me

8. WMGGW - the first George v George IIRC - IL got a lot of exposure on Instagram lately, which reminded me that I really don't care for it

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

1. Baby Your A Rich Man -- great song. HS is good but I have to be in a certain mood to listen through it, but I'll listen to BYARM anytime

2. Glass Onion -- I've never been a huge fan of Kite....it's a fun listen but I like GO better

3. Sgt. Pepper 's --  I love YWSM, but Pepper's intro is just so much more rockin' and fun! 

4. Happiness Is A Warm Gun -- this was the song that prompted me to listen to the White Album for the first time. 8DAW is good, but HIAWG is so much better!

5. You Never Give Me Your Money -- paul's beard voice tho 

6. Paperback Writer -- that bassline tho *chef's kiss* (I'd marry it if I could ngl)

7. Revolution 1 -- CTW is an okay song, but Rev. 1 holds more water 

8. While My Guitar Gently Weeps -- *another chef's kiss* brilliance. TIL is nice but WMGGW is a masterpiece like c'mon, there's really no contest!

19 Revolution One vs. 14 Carry That Weight

31 The Inner Light vs. 2 While My Guitar Gently Weeps

 

Baby You're A Rich Man (only because here in America HS was ruined for me by the Manson murders)

Glass Onion (This one is too close, possibly pushed this way because I know John wasn't too keen on Benefit, and a little embarrassed about "copying" it)

You Won't See Me (Another close one;  I really like the harmony in the chorus)

Eight Days A Week (For some reason, Warm Gun has always annoyed me a little, just a lot of lyrics thrown together to me)

No Reply (As some have said, the best song from BfS; but I really like YNGMYM, too)

Paperback Writer (Just a lot better than 64)

Carry That Weight (I like the sentiment of Revolution 1 , but I know I always turn up Abbey Road when the medley starts, and this song is part of it)

While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Favorite song from the White Album )

Rich Man - From intro to outro the entire song is spectacular 

Glass Onion - maybe the most unique set of lyrics ever penned. oooooh yeeeeaaaaah

Sgt. Peppers - You Won’t See Me is underated, Sgt. Peppers is Sgt. Peppers

Warm Gun - Phenomenal song one of my all time favorites

No Reply - I saw the light

Paperback Writer - Steamin single with killer guitar riffs and classic Beatles vocals

Revolution One - I prefer it to the single, “don’t you know its gonna be” just makes me feel so good

WMGGW coming for every song in the bracket’s families

1. Helter Skelter

2. Glass Onion - though I don't particularly like either one

3. Sgt. Pepper 's- bopadeebopbop

4. Happiness Is A Warm Gun - sick guitar brah

5. You Never Give Me Your Money - absolute beauty of a track

6. Paperback Writer - quite cute

7. Carry That Weight - just for that GORGEOUS YNGMYM call-back

8. While My Guitar Gently Weeps - best Beatles song, smashes The Inner Light (sorry George).

Ahhhhh, how did I not see this until today?!?!?!?!?! Well anyway, hope I'm not joining in too late.

Helter Skelter –how can the first heavy metal song ever not win this matchup?

Mr. Kite–narrowly wins out, I definitely love both songs, but today I'm going with this one.

You Won't See Me –Apologies to the greatest album of all time, I just don't think Pepper feels like a great standalone song.

Eight Days A Week –This was basically a tossup, but EDAW gives me so much nostalgia every time I hear it.

You Never Give Me Your Money –another hard choice, but I just adore that song.

Paperback Writer –Again, hard choice, but Paperback Writer is one of my favorite Beatles songs.

Revolution –that was an easier choice.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps –definitely the easiest choice.

I hope nobody yells at me for jumping in a week late a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Here are the results from last round. We will do this tiebreaker round first, and then finish up the first round and advance to the next, where the matchups are very tough.
