Yesterday vs. Blackbird vs. Eleanor Rigby
« on: May 11, 2008, 02:40:45 AM »

seemed like a good idea for a poll. three of Paul's most acclaimed songs. and they're all very similar. Paul is the only Beatle to appear (not counting John and George's brief harmonies on the "Lonely People" line) and they all run just a little over two minutes.

I've always thought Eleanor Rigby was one of their greatest songs, so I voted for that. but Blackbird is brilliant in it's simplicity (great riff too!) and Yesterday.....well what can I say that hasn't already been said?

Eleanor Rigby, then Yesterday, and last Blackbird.

I love the sound and story behind ER, great song alot of emotion.  
Yesterday of course one of his greatest, probably is.  I still prefer to hear ER though.
Blackbird, great song.  Just my least favorite out of the three.

1. 'Blackbird'
2. 'Yesterday'
3. 'Eleanor Rigby'

Never been all that fond of 'ER'. Too 'down' for me, though I appreciate the quality of the songwriting.
