I was thinking about hanging fire and voting tactically, but nah, Warm Gun is just blatantly the weakest song here.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Man, those duelling guitar solos in The End are one of the greatest moments in music ever. All three of them trading awesome licks. Then you have Ringo's excellent and poignant backing vocals on Carry That Weight. And Golden Slumbers ain't half bad either. What a way to say goodbye.

Fools.

Sorry, the triptych needs to go. Carry That Weight is carrying two other songs that wouldn't be sniffing the finals on their own, imho. It's, uh, carrying too much weight. It's a testament to Carry That Weight that I haven't voted for it until this round, but the math just doesn't work from here on out.

I'd love to shovel shit on the Abbey Road medley, but I can't. But it's going up against jaw-droppingly amazing stuff. Sorry, Heston, your turn to be bitter has arrived.

As I said in the last pole, it's getting more and more difficult each day. I think each of them has their own merits, it's going to be interesting to see where this goes.

Golden slumbers do not cry just because we have to say goodbye.
