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!

Wow, Eleanor Rigby? I know each song up there is fantastic, but no way I choose that over, say, And Your Bird Can Sing, which is a great song in its own right, but it is no Eleanor Rigby.

I loooooooooove "And Your Bird Can Sing". George's guitar work is amazing there.

Most definitely.

But the way Eleanor Rigby is structured and the haunting lyrics far outweigh the guitar work in And Your Bird Can Sing.

To me, anyway.

I'm Only Sleeping.

No way is that a better song than And Your Bird Can Sing, Eleanor Rigby or anything else left on this album.

Alright, time for the gloves to come off, you've got to be kidding me "I'm Only Sleeping" is a classic tune, second only to "Tomorrow Never Knows"... on this album IMO.

Really??? It's not a bad song by any stretch, but it's so forgettable to me. I'd forgotten it was still on the list of tunes left!

It's one of John's best early works, not counting Nowhere man and You've Got To Hide Your Love Away.

I love the backwards guitar solo, their first experimentation of this sort...

I'm picking Here, There, and Everywhere. Not a bad song, just not as exciting as the others. I'm Only Sleeping is awesome -- one of my favorites.

For No One gets my vote. It's a good song, just not as good as the others.
