Another great poll Dave! ha2ha
I voted for a personal favourite: Martha My Dear. Dear Prudence and Sexy Sadie are great as well. I don't really care about the other three. Especially Bungalow Bill is a low.

Martha My Dear is one of my favorite songs ever from ANY band. I like Dear Prudence and Rocky Raccoon as well. And Julia. Unfortunately Yoko's backing vocals on Bungalow Bill kill it for me.

My list:

1. Martha My Dear
2. Rocky Raccoon
3. The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill (Incidentally, if I were to judge from what few Yoko performances I've heard, I'd say she's singing awfully intentionally, for character effect. Her singing on "Happy Christmas (War is Over)" indicates to me that while her voice isn't exactly angelic, it's still much better than she lets on in this song. Assuming that's her leading the choir, that is. If that's someone else and she's singing a different part that I didn't notice, do tell me so I can listen more closely. If I hear a few songs where Yoko sings lead and remember this thread, I may change my tune at some point. Anyway, I find her part in the song to be rather entertaining.)
4. Dear Prudence
5. Sexy Sadie
6. Julia

Martha My Dear with Julia in a close second, then Rocky Raccoon. But I like them all besides Bungalow Bill, not one of my favorites.

Dear Prudence is my YouTube namesake, so I'd better like it! ha2ha

I chose Julia, I'm a sentimental person and this song gets me everytime.  :-[

But I don't mind Bungalow Bill. I try really hard to listen for Ringo's voice!!  ha2ha

I don't mind Bungalow Bill , think Yoko's vocal is calculated to annoy .
Double Fantasy shows she could tone down her cat been strangled vocal style if she wanted .

I chose Julia, since it's probably my fave Beatles song EVER, after Across The Universe.  The rest of the list for me probably goes Martha My Dear, Dear Prudence, Rocky Raccoon, Sexy Sadie and then The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill.
