Rules: Vote for your LEAST favorite song. This poll will be open for 24 hours, at which point the song with the most votes will be eliminated from the competition and the next round will be started. This process will continue until only one song remains in the 'Please Please Me' draw, and we move on to the next LP. And so on and so forth.

In the event of a tie, the tied songs will be eliminated together, UNLESS it is a tie between the final two songs in any draw, in which case the voting time will be extended.

Once again, if any of you don't have access to this LP and would like to hear the songs you don't know, tell me in this thread and I will link you up via PM to a zip file containing the whole album.

Let's up the voting for people - the more participation, the better!

I always knew this was going to be the hardest match for me.

It's going to get VERY difficult, VERY quick. But as for now, I'll have to say goodbye to Her Majesty. I love it, but it's just the easiest one to let go right now.


I really don't know which one I want to win the whole match. I have a feeling none of the medley songs are going to win, because they aren't quite as strong on their own as some of the Side A songs. If I had to choose one from the medley though, I'd probably go with She Came In Through The Bathroom Window.

From the whole album? I don't know, man. Probably either Here Comes The Sun (the obvious choise for winner and probably will be the winner) so maybe I'll root for Oh! Darling this match.

Yeah, sounds good. That song is pure bliss.

Thank Gawd that is over. That took ageeeeees. Four to go!

Her Majesty. Garbage.

Moving on, what do we all want to win? At this stage I'm going for I Want You (She's So Heavy). It fucking rocks. If I had to pick a medley song I'd pick She Came in Through the Bathroom Window. It's a very good album from George Harrison; both song and guitar wise.

Come Together, Here Comes the Sun, Something, I Want You (She's So Heavy), Oh! Darling, You Never Give Me Your Money, Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight and She Came in Through the Bathroom Window is the good stuff. Very even round I think.

And good to see I have a supporter in my support of Oh! Darling.

Her Majesty. I like it but it's definitely the weakest of the lot!

I would pick You Never Give Me Your Money as the best song on the album, hands fucking down! Although, Here Comes The Sun and Something give it a good run of it's money!

How the hell did something as insignifcant as Blackbird win The White Album?

Alrighty, here we go. Abbey Road.

For my two cents, The End is the best track from the album, and Something, Here Comes The Sun and Octopus's Garden all NEED to make up the final four with The End.

I Want You (She's So Heavy) must be elminated first....

...otherwise the bigot in me will be furious.



What insane person voted for Octopus? It's gorgeous...

Wrong, wrong, WRONG!

I agree with your first line but the rest I do not.

Am I the only one here who thinks Here Comes the Sun is a little overrated? It's great and all, but I much prefer Something...

Whoever voted for Maxwell's Silver Hammer needs a stern talking to! It'd quite hilarious and perfectly bizarre .

I'm going to vote for Octopus' Garden as well, predominantly owing to the vapid lyrics.

Octopus' Garden is definitely a silly song, and shouldn't last long in this competition, but to vote it off before something like Her Majesty is even more silly.

IMO, of course.

Her Majesty was tacked on like an afterthought. Don't like it.

Maxwell's Silver Hammer, Polythene Pam, Mean Mr Mustard and Octopus's Garden are all delightful and weird.

My vote for winner? Because.

Octopus' Garden is a beautiful song. Should make it at least a couple more rounds. At least past Maxwell's.
