We've been at this for 7 months. October 9th, 2020 through May 10th, 2021. Wow. Thank you all for doing this with me. It's been fun.

Big big thanks to WWK for the time and effort and endurance of our pissiness. It's all because we love too much. :kiss:

I've posted a shorter version of this before, but this clip from American Bandstand in 1967, showing the video for SFF and introducing a new, weirder looking Beatles, is apropos given our choices here. Which audience member are you?

Just to check, we're voting for the one we want to eject?

Oh, also, if we end up in a tie, I endorse the idea of co-champs rather than more revotes.

SFF for me, SLY is a beauty. Love the "Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!" at the finale, joining in with the last part of the chorus. Ends on a funny chord but overall I'd be happy to see it win.

G6 is not a funny chord. It is used a lot in rock/pop. The Clash used a few sixths in their time.

Ignore me, just listened again and it doesn't sound as odd as I thought in my head.

I can see it sounding funny to some. 6 is not the most consonant scale tone. I think 7 is a lot more common and relaxo for people.
