Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

A low turnout this week probably changed the results a little. We missed you this week Anthony and Nicolas and I'm sure a couple others I'm forgetting!

Beatles For Sale has one song left! It's really interesting how Yellow Submarine was the first album to go and was brought back to life by the Wild Card round and now has one more song than two other albums.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

Well, I didn't expect I've Just Seen a Face to get much farther but I'm still disappointed to see it go.

5: All You Need is Love
5: She Loves You
4: Eight Days A Week
4: Savoy Truffle
3: Got To Get You Into My Life
3: Twist and Shout- No offense, but I think it's kind of an insult to the Beatles amazing songwriting abilities that a cover song is still in this thing. I think only one other person is voting for it.
2: Back in the USSR
2: I Saw Her Standing There: I've officially reached the point where it's hard to find faults with the rest of the pack (not including the ones above)
1: If I Needed Someone
1: Carry That Weight

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

For my first participation to this game, here's my list of songs that I want to leave out :

5 - Think for yourself
5 - Being for the benefit of Mr. Kite!
4 - She came in through the bathroom window
4 - I'm looking through you
3 - It's all too much
3 - Hey Bulldog
2 - Two of us
2 - Cry baby cry
1 - Good day sunshine
1 - Oh darling

It's a shame that such beautiful songs like "If I feel" and "And I love her" (2 of my Beatles favourites) are already out.
People who vote for these, I hate you !

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

5: The Fool on the Hill
5: It's All Too Much
4: Piggies
4: Think for Yourself
3: Fixing a Hole
3: Can't Buy Me Love
2: Sexy Sadie
2: All You Need is Love
1: Lovely Rita
1: Mother Nature's Son

John, once we reach a certain point - say, the top 50 - are you going to reduce the number of songs we have to pick in each round (say, to 5)? Just curious.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

A few minor switches in the list below.

5: Oh! Darling
5: You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
4: For No One
4: Eight Days a Week - I just realised this song is quite week weak
3: Mother Nature's Son
3: Hello Goodbye
2: Hey Bulldog
2: You Won't See Me
1: She Came in Through the Bathroom Window - the last of the not so outstanding songs from the medley
1: Two of Us - This is where I start to vote out songs I really like

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

It'll go down sometime Harold but I don't think it'll be as soon as 50. Probably at the 20-25 mark.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

5: Lady Madonna
5: Dear Prudence
4: Martha My Dear
4: All You Need Is Love
3: Lovely Rita

Wow - All five songs that went out this time were on my list, how often has that happened for anyone since this game started?
OK then, now I have to choose another five songs:

3: Day Tripper
2: She Loves You
2: Two Of Us
1: Eight Days A Week
1: For No One

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

5: Hello Goodbye
5: Ticket to Ride
4: Eight Days a Weak
4: Good Day Sunshine
3: Savoy Truffle
3: I'm Looking Through You
2: I'm so Tired
New votes:
2: Twist and Shout: agree with John, I love this song, it’s the perfect party song. But let’s get rid of the last cover at this point of the game…
1: Carry That Weight: a transitional track inside the Abbey road medley (although a wonderful one).
1: It’s All Too Much: well, this is a good song and had a well deserved second chance, but maybe its time has come.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

Damn, I didn't have time to vote in last cut and it
seems like I've lost the opportunity of putting Julia out of here (sorry Justin!), cause now it isn't receiving as much votes as in last round!

5: Julia
5: For No One
4: Got to Get You Into My Life
4: With a Little Help from My Friends
3: Mother Nature's Son
3: I'm Looking Through You
2: Come Together
2: Martha My Dear
1: Get Back
New vote:
1: From Me to You: I see no difference between this and the other already eliminated early songs. And surely it's far behind pearls like I'm a Loser and I Wanna Hold Your Hand.

Hey, where has all this so subtly hate against Think for Yourself come from???

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

Duh, From Me to You has already been eliminated...
So replace my vote for Cry Baby Cry, one of the most overrated White Album tracks!

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

The disparity between the pre and post-Rubber Soul songs remaining is fairly astounding. By my count, 12/87 (13.8%) of the songs from before Rubber are remaining, as opposed to 70/124 (56.4%) from Rubber Soul and beyond.

5: Good Day Sunshine
5: Hey Bulldog
4: It's All Too Much
4: Julia
3: She's Leaving Home
3: She Said She Said
2: Cry Baby Cry
2: Don't Let Me Down
1: Martha My Dear
1: Savoy Truffle (NEW): The last of the White Album filler on my list to get off.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 26

It seems we've lost a couple of regular voters... is there a reason for this?
