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!

We all know that Getting Better is doomed as doomed can be. And it's going to lose to what? Lucy (psychedelic tripe)? The title track (more than slightly annoying)? The overrated A Day In The Life?

It's very sad.

You're overrated.

I voted LSD. If anything, THAT track is overrated. Very good, but very overrated.

I think I'm going for the title track. The other four songs are just excellent, and while I love Sgt. Pepper, in the end it is just the intro to the album.

Dude, are you honestly going to tell me that Getting Better is better that A Day In The Life???

LSD is overrated, yes. But A Day In The Life? Is there any other song that is such a quintessential Beatles song?

It has Lennon's dreamy lyrics + McCartney grounds it with his verses followed by John letting out the most incredible AHHHHHs in the history of music (or whatever you want to call it ).

Gives me the chills every time

The only other track that I might feel ok with winning would be A Little Help From My Friends and only because it's Ringo's strongest track by far...

I voted for track 2. All these songs are classic anyway.

"Better" is so vague. A Day In The Life is definitely the more complex of the two, and the one that pushes more boundaries, but regardless of that, I can't enjoy it as much as Getting Better. I think it should have been longer, with more emphasis on the McCartney section, which to me, just feels really rushed. I think it's a great tune overall, but Getting Better is one of my top 5 favorite Beatles songs, period.

I agree. I really love that song. It's perfect.

Sgt. Peppers

It's a fun song, but nothing compared to the others songs left here.
