Given the resultes of this poll where SFF beats PL hands down, how come PL made number one in the States and not SFF?
I'll tell you why.It's because the disc jockies decided why people bought the single and gave PL more airplay.
And that's why it's not on ONE. ::)

There both great songs but the simplicity of Penny Lane allows it to fall  short of Strawberry Fields! Strawberry Fields is a big number with blended vocals and rich guitar riffs! It's just got more body than Penny Lane! I think of Penny Lane like For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite it's just rhymed off in a matter of fact way that simplifys the song!

Strawberry Fields Forever.

Er ... lookin' at my user-name, you can tell i'm partial to this song. The lyrics are so complex but...not headachely so. Penny Lane is a good song, more...commercial-like, though. I just can't relate. I've never seen a nurse selling puppies poppies from a tray. =o Strawberry Fields has to be one of John's greatest with the Beatles. <3 Fantastignificent.

Whoooo... my brain hurts bad... I can't imagine what fans thought when the double-A side 45 came out in 67 - Penny Lane b/w Strawberry Fields. Then the U.S. plopped them both - and others - onto the manufactured "Magical Mystery Tour" soundtrack. But I guess where else would they go in AOR land?!

The decision would more aggravating if we were talking about the alternate take of Penny Lane with the extra piccolo trumpet lines (it adds something though it's less radio friendly), but Strawberry Fields has to win as the better overall song.

They're both delightful songs. I picked Strawberry Fields because it's so classically Beatles from that time, but Paul's tune is certainly fun to hum along to.

Penny Lane, and once again my Paul bias shines through. A week ago I would have said Strawberry Fields Forever but just the other day I listened to Penny Lane (multiple times) and it just sticks with my taste.

I voted Penny Lane. However I cannot say I like it better, they're just different. I don't know why but it always seems a very sad song to me. I just love the lyrics - words after words, simple and usually not used together (summertime and November poppies, blue suburban skies and rain) that creates constantly changing and at the same time everlasting picture in my mind. There's something fresh, something cozy and something nostalgic (I suppose because of Paul's voice). Add to it the bass rhythm that is sooo serious yet jumping, the melodic piano, filling the atmosphere with sounds, and the tiny insertion of the piccolo trumpet.
Very strange.
 ;)
Just now Strawberry fields for me is a song that makes you sit in a corner and tells you truths about life, universe and everything else with John's voice saying "down" - so grave  :X
