It's a little too melodramatic for my tastes.

As for Abbey Road, I only hope the long medley on side 2 is counted as one song and not a ton of little ones, because that would just take too damned long.

I can hardly wait until we get to the White Album. That'll be hilarious. I won't even know what to vote off, there's so much crap on it, especially CD 1.

Glass Onion
Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill
Happiness Is A Warm Gun (yes, I personally hate this damn song)
Don't Pass Me By

All of these songs make me want to kick puppies. Ob-La-Di is straddling the fence.

They should all be separate because if they were all combined, there would be no way it could lose. The Abbey Road Medley (YNGMYM through Her Majesty) is probably the single greatest piece of music in the rock catalog.

It will not be counted as one song. All 17 tracks will be represented.

And if you think that's long, wait until the White Album...each album will have only one representative in the final draw, so we can't do each disc of the White Album separately...so it's going to be one 30 song draw.

I never liked counting Her Majesty as part of it. I mean, I know that when Abbey Road was originally being made that Her Majesty was really a part of the medley instead of just being tacked at the end, but I like thinking of the medley ending with 'and in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make'.

I actually don't count YNGMYM or Sun King as part of the medley either. I mean, they're still part of the whole cohesive tension of Side 2, but the so-called "medley" is really just Mr. Mustard --> The End.

I don't mind counting it because I've always liked Her Majesty. Of course, it would sound a lot better ending with, you know, The End, but I'm a completist like that.

I disagree. Sun King goes directly into Mr. Mustard with no obvious gap. If anything, you should cut the medley off after She Came In Through The Bathroom Window because there's clearly a gap there.

Well...musically that's wrong...YNGMYM was meant to be the start of the medley...the way you know this is that the melody of YNGMYM is reprised in the middle of Carry That Weight, the second-to-last song of the medley...it was meant to go full circle like that, and then into 'The End'.

You could also argue against that. YNGMYM and Sun King are two complete and seperate songs, must like all the preceeding album. Just because there's no gap between Sun King and Mr. Mustard doesn't mean it's part of a medley. It's just good album production. I mean, it's pretty stupid to even argue about this one way or another, because the whole second half of the album is only how it is because the band hated each other at this point and couldn't really finish all these songs they started. Thank God for George Martin.

But the reprise in Carry That Weight doesn't automatically include YNGMYM in the medley. Are we going to argue that the SGT Pepper reprise constitutes a full album cycle, so it's all one grand concept suite? I mean, not quite the same case, but you get my point. I'm just saying, if you added a one-second gap between YNGMYM, Sun King, and Mr. Mustard, the album would still sound perfect. If you did that with the real "medley tracks" it would sound horrible. That's because YNGMYM and Sun King aren't in the "medley".
