She's Leaving Home makes me recoil. Worst thing they ever put out IMO.
In 1967, as kids break free of tradition and authority, the Beatles ask, "Have you thought about your parents?"

How about the Nilsson version?

Grr, got it wrong. Again. Voted for Kite but should've gone for WaLHFMF. Not that it's bad at all, I just really love this side .
I'm making an executive decision as poll leader. This round ended in a tie, but because Tom meant to vote for WaLHFMF instead of Kite and because the poll has already ended and I can't edit...I'm taking a vote away from Kite and awarding it to WaLHFMF which means She's Leaving Home is the sole track to be voted off in this round. Bye, bye.

The mono version of She's Leaving Home is pretty fantastic in my opinion. I think the strings are tasteful. I like Paul's vocal and the lyrics are nicely done, definitely painting a picture without being too maudlin. John's weary backing vocal is also great. It might not fit the mood of the album, but it's a solidly realized track.
