Rank The Beatles Songs
« on: January 22, 2010, 06:32:44 AM »

Penny Lane suggest I just make a thread about this so here I am. Sorry if I step on any toes... ;sorry

I'm currently in the process of running a fan-run ranking of The Beatles best songs through the internet using a bunch of websites, Facebook, forums, et cetera. Why? Mostly just for fun and to make it a truly fan-run thing instead of these Entertainment Weekly things made by someone who also gave a Thumbs Up to Miley Cyrus' new album.

What I'm looking for now is just people and their ballots. When I say ballots, this is exactly what I am looking for:

A list of your top 25 Beatles songs in order (meaning #1 is your favorite/best Beatles song).

That's all I really need from people who want to participate. If you want to help out more, just let people know and get people to vote. The more voters/ballots, the more varied the list gets and the more definitive it gets.

But for right now, I'm really just looking for people who would be interested and their votes.

As per when I need them, I would like them as soon as possible just so I can add them to the rolling list and see how many people I have so I can see what else I need to do to get more.

Thank you guys so much for your time; I greatly appreciate it!

I look from the wings of the play you are staging. As I'm sitting here, doing nothing but aging. While my guitar gently weeps.

I don't think the Abbey Road medley is actually one song, and anyway "Here Comes The Sun" is part of it.

My list may or may not follow in the near future, but my favorite Beatles songs change with my mood, so it may not be very accurate for long after I post it.

It's not. You Never Give Me Your Money is the first song of the medley.

I always considered the entire second side of the album linked, since "Here Comes The Sun" ties into "Sun King" thematically and lyrically, even if the first two songs don't actually fade into the next. (Although because of the thick layer of hiss on the 1987 CDs, I thought they did until you pointed it out just now and I listened to the stereo remasters to check!  :P )

Anyway, the entire album when listened to straight through, part of the medley or not, is great for certain "romantic activities", if you catch my drift! In fact, I'd wager that they had that in mind when creating the album as a whole. "Come Together" and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" certainly, at least.

These change probably daily, but here they are, at least for today:

1. Yesterday (call me cliche, but I still love this song)
2. Abbey Road Medley (I'll cheat and call it one song)
3. Martha My Dear
4. We Can Work It Out
5. What You're Doing
6. You Won't See Me
7. Here, There, And Everywhere
8. For No One
9. Good Day Sunshine
10. Got To Get You Into My Life
11. Sgt. Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band (not including With A Little Help From My Friends)
12. Fixing A Hole
13. The Fool On The Hill
14. Lady Madonna
15. Hey Bulldog
16. Hey Jude
17. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
18. Blackbird
19. Why Don't We Do It In The Road?
20. Two Of Us
21. Oh! Darling
22. Eleanor Rigby
23. She's A Woman
24. Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey! (cover)
25. I'm Down

You can probably tell this pretty much ended up being somewhat chronological, this is because I was just looking through albums/singles and couldn't put them in order, so don't take the actual rankings too seriously, just what songs are included.

As for the medley, I've always considered You Never Give Me Your Money through The End the medley (I mean, the verse of that first song shows up in the Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight part too...). Every place I've looked has considered it too...

I'm counting votes though as anyone who puts down ONE song part of it as a vote for the whole thing. If people voted for TWO songs though from it, I just ask them to re-do their vote to add one more.
