Honey Pie gets my vote. It's not without charm (and I love John's vintage guitar solo), but enough is enough, Paul. No more schlock :mrgreen:.

Looking at all the sides laid out like this in the polls -- what an incredible album!

I've heard that one of the Holy Grails of Beatles songs is the original demo of this track with John singing and playing acoustic guitar, but the tape is apparently lost for good. I like the song, but dislike the treatment it received.

It’s all over the map, but most of it is great. And the lesser songs still work for me in the context of the album.

They should have made a dub version of Savoy Truffle.

Revolution 9. Shame Honey Pie seems to be on it's way out, reminded me strongly of a George Formby track.
