Revolution 9 is the shit!

It's exactly the kind of stuff I can just listen and mellow out to. Especially when the fire starts to crackle and John makes those noises <- Literally!

Mother Nature's Son
I like Wild Honey Pie though. I like almost everything on this album and if Abbey Road weren't blow-my-mind-awesome, it would be my #1. It was my favorite Beatles album for a long, long time.

Yes, there is a sped-up version of Revolution 1, which is the one you hear on the radio. It wasn't officially on an album, it was the B-side to Hey Jude, I think.

This version is notable for having an extra, important word in it.

"When you talk about destruction, don't you know that you can count me out ....... in!"

The faster, B-side version does not have "in." "In" changes the whole sentiment of the song, and it's a little eerie. In a good way.

Revolution 1 > Revolution

It has the squealing guitars, but it's not as obnoxious.

"Rocky Raccoon"

I've always LOVED this song for some reason. Lyrically it's got that great storytelling narrative, sort of like Pearl Jam's "Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town".

I know it's not going to win, but I would still like to see it make it at least half way through.


Go Rocky, GO!!!!

Jesus! That is allot of choices...

I'm going to start with Revolution #9 since that's just nonsense...

I would really like to see Blackbird win. I think it's one of McCartney's greatest songs of all time, in fact he also has another one of my all time faves on this album as well: Mother Natures Son...

The only other track I am comfortable with winning is While My Guitar Gently Weeps because it's one of George's best...

"Wild Honey Pie" is hilarious, so it stays.

Revolution 9 is tedious and kind of grating. Therefore, it goes first.

I love Revolution 9! So many interesting things going on throughout the song, it's like a movie on CD.

As usual, the most interesting song is getting eliminated first! Most people here seem to have no sense of adventure.

I like adventure. But I like it to be something other than a too-long pile of various noises.

Experimental does not automatically mean good.

Can we just vote on Blackbird, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Revolution 1 and 9, Helter Skelter, Long Long Long, Back in the USSR, Dear Prudence, Happiness is a Warm Gun, Julia, and I'm So Tired so this won't take 3 weeks to finish?

Bingo.

A bunch of random sounds put together doesn't = adventurous/interesting. It's lazy and tedious for the listener.

Now "Happiness is a Warm Gun" - THAT'S a fucking interesting song. It's amazing how well the drastic changes in structure work so wonderfully together.

Agreed. I didn't intend to mean that experimental automatically equals good. But most of the time, the more experimental songs don't seem to win here. Tomorrow Never Knows, Walrus, I'm Only Sleeping all lost.

Gotcha, thanks for clarifying. I was feeling a little defensive.

You have to admit though, Tomorrow Never Knows probably would have won had it not been meddled with. That would have been a point in favor of experimentation.
