Four votes for In My Life to one for Happiness is a Warm Gun? Really? I mean really?
I'll say this: your hectoring against this song has led me to return to it in the past week, and I didn't appreciate it as much as I should have. It's a fantastic preview of Lennon moving away from stereotypical Beatlesque songs to stuff that is odder in construction and performance. It's like the best of his early post-Beatles records.

(That said, I appreciate more the sincerity of In My Life, but at this point in the game it really is to each their own.)
We've long passed the point where there are bad songs on this list, no matter how insane Heston is.

EDIT: That being said, there's no reason to vote for "In My Life" when you can knock off a presumptive winner that presumes a little too much in my opinion...
I think my strategy (in order) will be

In My Life
SFF
AHDN
Revolution
Happiness
ADITL
SLY
When people can vote out In My Life over Happiness Is a Warm Gun, anything can happen. I've realised I'm not the lunatic in this asylum.
Oh no, don't worry, you're still chief lunatic. There are others, yes, but you're still the gold standard of loco opinions.

There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

That you're unsure where you are is evidence of your mental imbalance.

I'm just betting this is the only board in the world that would elevate Warm Gun above In My Life. It's insane.

Not my ranked choice, but on the other hand it shouldn't be a strike against the group for being unconventional. I expect TNK to get the boot in the next round or the one after, but I will raise an eyebrow if SFF doesn't make the final 3.

in my heart, i want a TNK vs HiaWG finale, which almost certainly won't happen, but I'm happy to try.

Do we really want Heston's suicide on our hands?

Yes, that would finish me off.

Don't worry, it won't happen. When you go, my hands will be around your throat.
