This is the fifth month of the Ultimate Beatles Poll 2020. Big ups to WWK. 😎

PS: pulp Paperback Writer.
I should have done the math before I proposed it... ;)

...but seriously it has been a great time.
I've not commented much but thank you WWK, this has been a highlight of lockdown II for me.

That said, can't believe people are voting for Rain already.
Hey Jude is the bigger shock for me. Their biggest selling single, and surely it can only be fatigue that is making people vote it off first. A religious experience without needing religion.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I think the beef is that 90% of its lyrics are "na." Also it's pretty boring even without that.
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

That communal thing was new then, I enjoy the long fade with Macca going crazy. The main body of the song is superb.

Historical context helps the song a bit (and I don't mean the Julian Lennon part). Think about Western nations in 1968, especially the US. Shit was polarized, open violence, wholly contrary to the Beatles' worldview. They respond with what amounts to a campfire sing-a-long urging friendship and hope. It's pure Beatles, emphasizing commonality and love. And it was rejected in that context because the serious kids didn't want to hear any of that (for the same reason, the committed kids hated the b-side, "Revolution," with its rejection of violence and ideology). It's radical pacifism at a time when everyone else wanted to rip the other's throat out. I can't help but respect their commitment to another way, however naive and hopeless.

As it's on its way out, I will casually mention that I got to hit a few notes on the Lady Madonna piano when I went to visit a friend who works at Abbey Road. 😎

For the record I like Lady Madonna a lot. Unlike Hey Jude it’s not a boring wank that people put on a pedestal.
