Best Beatles Song Survivor - The Final Draw - GRAND FINAL

On July 1, 2006 - exactly 16 months ago - the idea of an Interference Best Beatles Song Survivor was introduced. It was thought that it would take until January of 2007 to complete. However, as it does with so many other things, life got in the way. Delays, lengthy draws, and occasional forgetfulness have made this competition a long and sprawling one. But we can now smell the scent of its completion.

And as our mouths water with that scent and our hearts beat in anticpation of crossing the proverbial finish line, we also look back on the last few rounds of this Final Draw and we see just how difficult it was to eliminate any of these final 5 or 6 songs. In fact, at many points during this competition, it wasn't any easier.

And perhaps that is what we should ultimately take away from this - that the reason it was and is often so difficult to eliminate songs in this competition is because of the depth and quality of the catalog we're looking at. Perhaps this isn't about winners and losers, but about gaining a new appreciation of just how good this body of work is. Of how these songs are ingrained in our consciousness for all time. And of how our great-grandchildren might just be playing this music for their great-grandchildren.

This IS, however, a competition, and every competition must have an ultimate victor.

16 months ago, the idea of an Interference Best Beatles Song Survivor was introduced. Today, we crown a champion.

Don't forget to vote for the one you want to WIN, not eliminate.

Strawberry Fields Forever. The song that was so good, Lennon spent the rest of his career trying to redo perfectly over and over again cuz he never felt he had done enough.

I'm completely torn between the two songs and don't know how to vote.

Must think it over.

Two of the greatest songs of all time.

namkur you should put a time limit, at least a week to see how many votes both songs can get

Strawberry Fields, because it's the bomb. It probably is my 2nd favorite behind Across the Universe, so hopefully this will all work out.

The limit is 24 hours, just like every other poll in the competition.

A Day in the Life for me. In my mind, this is one of the several greatest songs ever composed, largely owing to its striking yet intangible resonance. It also seems fitting in the sense that it is probably one of the few examples of a true Lennon/McCartney collaboration, and therefore is representative of both of these phenomenally talented songwriters.

Oh my god, I can't believe SFF is out in front.

Over time, though, the fools will outweigh the sages.

Hopefully not enough in 24 hours.
