Post by WestwayKid »

Nowhere Man versus In My Life... a battle of 2 Lennon heavyweights.

2 incredible songs. I cherish them both, but I cherish Nowhere Man a little more.

Just the opposite for me. I think the bridge lyrics are worse on Nowhere Man. They'd overdone the listen/missing rhyme by this point.

In My Life was what my wife and I danced to at our wedding, so my vote is on no way rational.

Bowie would have done a great Nowhere Man. Pin Ups era or Hunky Dory.

Voting to move Nowhere Man forward. One of my fave Beatles songs since I was a kid. Grabbed my imagination at a young age and never let go.

There's a beautiful melancholy underlying "In My Life." Can't vote against that.

This is a great point. The 3rd time was not the charm.

In My Life is one of those songs where John & Paul differed on the question of authorship. Paul has claimed that he was responsible for most of the music. It actually does sound more like Paul, but the lyrics clearly John.

I love both of these but after a back-to-back listen, In My Life comes out ahead.

Just to follow up since I'm seeing the love for In My Life, but I won't be at all unhappy if that one advances either. Probably the first real coin flip matchup of the semis imho

In My Life is one of the very best Beatles songs and really should progress here.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board
