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!

Hey guys, I'm considering an idea, and I'd like to know what you think.

Basically, I'm thinking, after all of the LPs have been done, but before the final draw starts, I will allow the chance for the final round of any ONE LP to be done again.

When all the LPs are finished, I would start a poll with a question along the lines of "Which LP do you feel will be misrepresented in the final draw, and therefore should be put to a re-vote?"

The options for the poll will be all of the LPs, plus an option that says something like "None. All of the LPs are accurately represented as is."

If that last option wins the poll, nothing changes and the final draw starts. If any of the LPs wins the poll, I would re-make the final round of that LP and you all would have the chance to vote again.

The point of this is, if enough people feel that, say, Tomorrow Never Knows should have won over Eleanor Rigby, or that WMGGW should have won over Blackbird, or so on and so forth, they can have the chance to prove that they are in the majority. If the original winner wins again the second time around, we'll know that it wasn't a fluke, and if the original loser wins the second time around, the majority will have 'justice', if you will.

I would only allow this to happen for ONE LP(the winner of the poll), because if I just start allowing all of the LPs to be voted on again, chaos would ensue. Also, I would not allow any re-voting beyond the final round of the winning LP, i.e., if you feel that the first song eliminated from the White Album deserved to win, you're shit out of luck, 'cause we're not doing 30 rounds again.

Thoughts?

Sounds like a good idea, if only to get Tomorrow Never Knows into the finals.

But I'm curious about something else I thought of the other night. What about singles and b-sides and unreleased songs and stuff? Are we going to have any special rounds for them? For instance, I would be willing to bet Hey Jude is the most popular Beatles song ever, but it's not on any of the albums. Also, my favorite song from the Get Back sessions is Don't Let Me Down, but I'm assuming that won't be up for the Let It Be round either.

Y'know?

Don't Let Me Down was on Let It Be... Naked though, which could be a round of its own I think.

Who voted for SunKing?



Picking from this album is so damn difficult. It's like trying to decide which of my children to stab in the face.

I stab Polytheme Pam. You were a cunt anyway.

All of the official b-sides and stuff that wasn't released on LPs is on the Past Masters compilations, and we'll be having one round for each. That will cover Hey Jude, Don't Let Me Down, etc.
