To me, 8 Days a Week has no business representing an album. I think No Reply is a much better song, and if you look at the results, three songs were eliminated in a 3-way tie, with only 7 total votes cast. That's hardly a consensus.

namkcuR, I don't want to make you do extra work, but you should look at these results closesly and determine yourself which ones look a bit sketchy, and re-do whatever looks like it deserves one. In my opinion, Beatles For Sale should receive this treatment.
Beatles For Sale is, imo, one of the weakest Beatles albums. Looking at those four songs - Eight Days A Week and the three-way-tie, I still think Eight Days A Week would have been the majority choice to win the album anyway. No Reply, I'm A Loser, and Rock And Roll Music are not that well-known. None would have defeated Eight Days A Week, imo.

Okay, well my vote for Eleanor Rigby vs. Tomorrow Never Knows still stands.

Untrue. TNK will never, nor has ever been the best song on Revolver. Neither song deserved to win that draw. It should have been She Said, She Said or I'm Only Sleeping IMO.

I'll take the Let It Be over Across The Universe draw.

I don't get the love for Tomorrow Never Knows. It's not that good.

But Blackbird?? Come on!!

How about we redo the white album with: Dear Prudence vs Monkey...

Ahem. Blackbird is one of the most beautiful of all Beatles' songs.

As far as Tomorrow Never Knows, it's good, but it's not as much of a fan favorite as Eleanor Rigby is.

It's beautiful yes, but there's about four songs at least that deserve to win before it.

I just have to download I Feel Fine and I've got them all.

Come to think of it, I wouldn't have minded seeing A Hard Day's Night redone. Can't Buy Me Love is a much better song.

And I'm still bitter that Something lost. *wasdesperatelyhopingforayounevergivemeyourmoneyvssomethingfinal*

Here Comes the Sun is probably George's best song ever, in my opinion.

I wish Paul would've let him write more of the band's songs.
