Crazy. Better song than either remaining.
I think there's some voting going on for icon status rather than quality.

Nah, She Loves You is better on every level than the other two. It has a rush of excitement that marks it down as one of the greatest ever pop singles for me.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I like it better too, I'm just musing on some other reasons.

Oh yeah. Crazy is definitely better. Willie Nelson writing for Patsy Cline can’t be beat.

One vote for "She Loves You" here. "I Want To Hold Your Hand" is a great song, but to me it's not quite as good.

Tbf songs are usually iconic because they are great. A turn of events that is not totally surprising.

I'm not what I'd call a passionate beatles fan, so a lot of times the Big Name songs are the ones I like most *shrug*
