The improbable run of SPLHCB (Reprise) ends in this round (I think & hope)!

It never seemed improbable to me. I always assumed it was a highly regarded Beatles song, more so than the song it reprised.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

And yet three people—three!—have so far voted for a reprise over a consensus inner circle Beatles song. When we did these polls with the Clash, even when I disagreed (vehemently at times) with the results, I could understand the basic thinking behind it. The choices in these votes so far—chiefly the last three albums—completely bewilder me. It's approaching Manson levels of "what the hell are you hearing?"

A Day In the Life is the one song on this album that makes me think “I see why this gets hyped.” Voting for it to go over a fucking reprise (and I don’t even hate the reprise, but it’s just a reprise) is baffling.

I hope so. If someone actually voted for the reprise over A Day in the Life...I'd definitely want to hear the justification.

Agreed and then some. It can be critiqued as stitching together two unfinished songs, but the overall effect is epic.

I just think a lot of people underestimated how well that reprise is regarded. Hate to be smug but I knew it would do well.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: democracy simply doesn't work.

I was musing the other day on whether it would be fun to do this kind of exercise for Bowie albums. But when I realized with this board we'd be assured of "Rebel Rebel" winning, I decided no, it would not be fun.

You absolutely don’t hate to be smug. You just don’t get many chances.
