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'm going with The Long and Winding Road. It was between that and I Me Mine. But I'll pick Road because of the long and whining strings on this version.

How many times am I going to have to requote myself?

Ok guys, I need to make a very important clarification at the outset of this draw, and you need to understand this because it could conceivably effect your voting: Across The Universe, Let It Be, and Get Back WILL NOT APPEAR IN THE PAST MASTERS VOL. 2 DRAW. SO DO NOT VOTE OFF ANY OF THESE SONGS THINKING, 'IF IT WERE THE PAST MASTERS VERSION, I'D WANT IT TO WIN, BUT SINCE IT'S THE LET IT BE VERSION, I'M VOTING IT OFF'. JUST PRETEND THE VERSIONS OF EACH OF THESE SONGS ON LET IT BE ARE YOUR FAVORITE VERSIONS OF EACH. This has to be done this way because I can't let there be any chance of a song competing against itself in the final draw. Thank you.
Sorry if I seem to be overreacting, but this is like the third or fourth or fifth time I'm having to repeat myself. I just would have to see any song get eliminated because people aren't reading. I suppose I should have clarified further that this general rule also applies to The Long And Winding Road since there won't be a Let It Be...Naked draw, but I figured you'd get it on your own.

Meh, I wouldn't want the song to win this round anyway. I understand your rules, but I'm comfortable with my decision.

You most certainly are overreacting. The version on here sucks, and that's ultimately what you have to vote on. Your way of thinking is not logical - you don't "pretend" your favorite version is on here. You have to go with the one actually being represented.

No, you don't. This isn't the 'Best Beatles Song Arrangement' contest, and ultimately that's what you're voting on when you say, I won't vote because the strings suck, maybe I'd vote differently if it were the naked version.

And it would be different if there was going to be a separate draw for let it be naked, but there isn't going to be, therefore if - and this is a big if because I don't know if you like the naked version anyway - you like the naked version, this is your only chance to say so voting-wise in this contest.

There are very specific reasons which I have laid out why I put these clarifications and rules in place. You may think my way of thinking is not logical, but I can say the same for yours. I want this contest to be as inclusive as it can possibly be in terms of all the songs represented, but I don't want to spend the time on a separate draw for the naked album nor do I want to take the chance of a past masters version of a song going up against the let it be version of itself in the final draw, so I had to make these clarifications. I don't know what isn't logical about that.

I'm voting on best song. If an arrangement makes one version of that song drastically different from another, I don't consider it the same thing and won't vote for it if I don't like it. Plain and simple.

And this contest wouldn't be fully inclusive unless you included every released song, in every version. Because you don't, this is going to happen. I understand your reasons for not going that route, although the chances of two versions of the same song meeting up in the final is remote at best. But by doing it this way, people are going to vote based upon what is actually there, not by what they wish was there.

Well, perhaps others would be more willing to use their imagination in instances like this. Anyway, clearly neither of us are changing our minds, so it would probably be most beneficiary to simply agree to disagree and be done with it.

Back Road Be Universe

I only know Get Back, The Long And Winding Road, Let It Be, and Across The Universe, so I won't vote until the only songs left are songs I know.
