I'll do this before I go to bed!

 

1. I Am The Walrus - don't particularly like TW, at least IATW is fun

2. Get Back - good dance song, NM's lyrics are better but GB is more invigorating 

3. Girl- nice song better than TE

4. Tomorrow Never Knows - excellent backwards nonsense 

5. Two Of Us - AHDN is iconic but I personally prefer the sweetness of TOU and it's a song that always makes me happy

6. I've Just Seen A Face - I am sorry YGTHYLA, an absolutely brilliant song but I am one of the biggest fans of IJSAF and I can't Let It Down like this!!!

7. Got To Get You Into My Life - ba dum dum dum dummmm bop

8. Ticket To Ride - excellent guitar, good lyrics, happy ASJ.

The Word . Was my favourite song, still probably top 3.

Nowhere Man . The harmonies clinch it

The End . Powerful stuff at the end of the song

Tomorrow Never Knows . It isn't IWY(SSH)

A Hard Day's Night . Good old fashioned rocker

I've Just Seen A Face , I guess

For No One . French horns!

Ticket To Ride . Very clever song

This will stay open for a day, let me know if ya'll would rather vote on four matchups for this round instead of eight.

Happy to do 8, or 4 if others want.

1. The Word (IATW is cool, but it's also a little too weird unless I'm in the mood for it, whereas TW is ~g r o o v y~ and I'll listen to it anytime)

2. Nowhere Man (pretty cool bassline + nice vocals + cool lyrics and message = awesome song)

3. Girl (one of my favorites, it's just soooooo good! The harmonies are fantastic and the lyrics are great and everything about Girl is great! TE is epic and all but its                     powers aren't really activated unless it's with the full Medley to precede and build up to it) 

4. Tomorrow Never Knows (backwards guitar solo is feckin' cool as hell stuart-sutcliffe, also not a big fan of IWY*)

5. A Hard Day's Night (an icon, also I love Paul's vocals on AHDN )

6. I've Just Seen A Face (Sorry Dylan-esque Lennon, but IJSAF is just such a cute lovely song heart)

7.  For No One (ahhhhhh so difficult I love boooottthhhh soooo muuucchhh, but in the end, FNO has to win because of that amazing french horn solo and the fact                                 that it's just overall really gorgeous!)

8. Ticket To Ride (another iconic track-- Ringo really be out here showing off on the drum bit)

 

*I also really can't believe IWY won over motherfrickin' Hey Jude but it really gotta be that way

- I Am The Walrus

- Nowhere Man

- The End

- Tomorrow Never Knows [By a very small margin as I love both songs with all my heart, but judging by what the others are saying about I Want Youpaul-mccartneyI'm guessing it wouldn't have gone farahdn_paul_01but it is an amazing song, underrated as well, it appears. If it ended at 4 minutes it would probably have won my bracket. But, you know, Ringo's drumming on TNK is just on point and the editing is nuts for a 1966 song so yes, I'm happy with my decision.]

- Two of Us

- I've Just Seen A Face

- For No One

- Ticket To Ride [I hate to put a Help ! track over an MMT track but... I listened to both and I gotta give it to it. It is slightly bettera-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-7]

I Am The Walrus - Unique.

Get Back - Never been much of a fan of 'NW'.

Girl - It is such a great song whereas 'TE' works far better when played thru in the medley.

Tomorrow Never Knows - Both are brilliant but this is incredible and far shorter.

Two Of Us - Both great but I have a real liking for this. Two great album openers.

I've Just Seen A Face - Love both but 'IJSAF' is so feckin' cool; the opening, the fun.

For No One - Beautiful. 

Ticket To Ride - The promo is so cool (never mind the song) plus I prefer the 'Love' remix of TFOTH'.

I Am The Walrus vs. The Word

Get Back vs Nowhere Man

Girl vs The End

I Want You (She's So Heavy) vs Tomorrow Never Knows

A Hard Day's Night vs Two Of Us

I've Just Seen A Face vs. You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

Got To Get You Into My Life vs For No One

Fool On The Hill vs Ticket To Ride

I Am The Walrus –what is wrong with you people?

Nowhere Man –childhood favorite, and though it's probably not even in my top ten anymore, I still have to pick it.

Girl–love both, but The End only works with the rest of the Medley, while Girl makes for a complete statement all on its own.

Tomorrow Never Knows –BEST SONG ON REVOLVER, HELL YEAH!

A Hard Day's Night –while I was singing ToU earlier today, I think that opening guitar part on AHDN does it for me.

I've Just Seen A Face –two amazing songs, from the same album??? Why would you do this to us...

For No One –easy choice.

Fool On The Hill–hard choice, but I'm comfortable with it.
