Okay. We'll start tomorrow morning.

Should we do one LP at a time?

Please Please Me Side A
Please Please Me Side B
With the Beatles Side A
...and so on?

Narrow it down to the best track from each LP for the final round?
What would Pete Best do?
Wait for a vote on the tracks they did with Tony Sheriden?

How are we doing the medley on side two of Abbey Road? Those individual songs are weird half-sketches mostly , but I love most of that side as a single track that’s just a tremendous outpouring of ideas (kind of like "B-Boy Bouillabaisse")
My favourite Beatles song is the Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End section of the medley. I just see that portion as one song.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

That's your favourite Beatles song? That's way more outre than my championing of "You Know My Name."

Really? I thought it was recognised as a classic? My next favourite is the definitely well regarded SFF.

I can honestly say that you're the first person I've encountered that named anything from Side 2 of AR as their favourite Beatles song.

It has been 136 days since I proposed this poll. 4 months & 13 days. Thank you all for sticking around & staying engaged for so long.
