Sorry, LemonMelon. It just makes me picture McCartney donning some old-timey suit and top hat and soft-shoeing around the studio or something, and I just want to smack him.

Just a little.



As for Yer Blues, I'd rather listen to some basic bluesy riffing and singing than a bunch of freaking noise.

Dear John: Save it for your albums with Yoko. Kthxbye.
Rev 9 is surely worth keeping for the Can You Take Me Back thing or whatever....that's a charming little tune sung by Paul...

And there is music beneath the surface....

Is that "can you take me back" bit attached to Rev 9? I do like that little bit.

But not enough to revoke my vote.

Technically, that song is a part of Cry Baby Cry.

But it does have parts of Revolution 1 in it, so I'm happy about that.

OK, I've decided that I really like all of the following:


Back In The USSR
Dear Prudence
While My Guitar...
Martha My Dear
I'm So Tired
Blackbird
Julia
Birthday
Mother Nature's Son
EGSTHEFMAMM
Sexy Sadie
Helter Skelter
Long, Long, Long
Revolution 1
Cry Baby Cry

Every other song on the album can fall in a ditch for all I care.

I literally don't know half the songs on this album, so I just voted randomly for Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me and My Monkey because it sounds funny

I believe that the Zoo TV Tour intro was inspired by Revolution 9.

Finally!

Okay, Wild Honey Pie HAS to go. It is terrible, sickening, horrible, ear-poisoning garbage. If we were describing songs in terms of tempature, Wild Honey Pie would get Absolute Zero, which is 0C Kelvin, or -273C. At that temperature, even Hydrogen and Helium are solids. That is how bad Wild Honey Pie is. Utter crap.

Some other things I'd like to get off my chest:
- There is a fair bit of filler on this album. That's the danger with making an album with 30 songs. Happened to the RHCP.
- Here's hoping for Monkey to win! It's a MAD song.
- Revolution 9 may be crap and pointless, but I would still rather listen to its 8 minutes than Wild Honey Pie's 50 seconds.

Makes sense. Hasn't Bono always said they were most inspired by the White Album?

I'm surprised at how many people like Revolution 1... I think it's pretty bland myself. Is there a faster version or a remake I am thinking of? My Dad reckons its there best song...when I heard I was all like, "Meh."

Top 3 on iTunes:
1. Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey - The Beatles - 12 Plays
2. Eclipse - Pink Floyd - 11 Plays
3. Anybody Seen My Baby? - The Rolling Stones - 11 Plays

I can't believe While My Guitar Gently Weeps has one vote. Come on, you may not like it, but there's a lot of crap in the album that deserves to be voted out first!

There's no Beates-dissing in this thread; White Album is just pretty average overall. At its best, it's up there with their best and most experimental, at its worst....

It's no sacred cow. It's a good (not great) Beatles album, which is a sad thing.
