Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

Brace yourself because this past cut we eliminated not one, but two albums, Beatles For Sale and Yellow Submarine. Yellow Submarine looked like it was holding on nicely after finding new life but that patch just wouldn't hold! With All You Need Is Love gone too, Piggies is the only remaining song from what I'll call the Beatles Oceanic 8.


15: Eight Days a Week
13: Hey Bulldog
13: It’s All Too Much
12: Julia
11: All You Need is Love

Close: For No One, I Want You (She's So Heavy, Good Day Sunshine, I'm Looking Through You, Think for Yourself, Mother Nature's Son, Piggies, Two Of Us, She Came In Through The Bathroom Window

RULES: Vote for 10 Beatles songs assigning 5 points to two, 4 points to two, 3 points to two, 2 points to two and 1 point to two. Please put the point value next to each song. Please follow this format to make it easy for me to plug into Excel.

Comments are very welcome but not required. I'd like it if you give an overall comment but you don't have to.

5 songs will be eliminated every Monday and Thursday and a new vote will begin each day. The deadline for submitting a list is 2PM on each elimination day. In the event of a tie all songs receiving the elimination vote will be eliminated.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

Does anybody know why Anthony isn't participating anymore?

I have to say I really liked the results this week. They might not have been the next ones on my list but I don't feel bad about any of them not making it farther.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

Sad to see Eight Days a Week go, but finally my least favorite Beatles' relevant song (i.e., excluding shit like A Taste of Honey) has been sent away from the island!

Something interesting we can realize now. We've frequently heard people saying that the White Album would have been something of unimaginable greatness if it had been released as a simple 14-track disc. And, so, I've always wondered which would be the selected tracks if this was the real situation. Well, now we've reached the point where there are exactly 14 white tracks in the game.
So it seems that, for the AM-Beatlemaniacs, the best possible version of "The Beatles" would be something like this (I've reordered the tracks in order to retain the fluency and cohesion of a real album):

1) Back in the USSR
2) Dear Prudence
3) Piggies
4) I'm So Tired
5) Cry Baby Cry
6) Sexy Sadie
7)While My Guitar Gently Weeps
8) Mother Nature's Son
9) Helter Skelter
10) Martha My Dear
11) Happiness Is a Warm Gun
12) I Will
13) Savoy Truffle
14) Blackbird

Proud to see my fab's favorite song making it!

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

Those two departing Yellow Submarine songs are among my favourites, it's good to see they both stuck around for an extra few weeks and rightfully made the top 100.

If Piggies or Good Day Sunshine last longer than For No One....

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

The only complaint I have about For No One is that it's short and ends abruptly. I kind of wish they would have thrown an extra verse on, maybe even an orchestration in the middle. I'm not close to voting it off but it feels incomplete.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

That's a good White Album but I think Savoy Truffle wouldn't fit anymore. If that were the 14 I'd replace Savoy Truffle with Julia or Rocky Raccoon to maintain the overall feel of the album. Savoy Truffle on that version would be like if Beck threw in E-Pro on Sea Changes.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

Still looks like a pretty patchy album...

New vote:
1: All My Loving: I like this song not because I feel good when listening to it, but cause I have kind of a sympathy for its spirit, the sentiment shown within its melody and lyrics. This means that, when I listen to it, I generally feel almost nothing, but even though I have postponed the most I could my voting against it. Hey, never would think this song could get so far! And I Love Her and If I Fell have already gone and this one's still with us, strange thing...

New votes:
1: Two of Us: during the last (and difficult) days of The Beatles Paul and Linda used to drive a lot going nowhere, running away from the continuous discussions. That feeling of freedom inspired many songs, “Two of Us” (“getting nowhere / on our way back home”), “You Never Give Me Your Money” (“Oh that magic feeling / nowhere to go”) and “The Back Seat of My Car” (“We was only hiding / sittin’ in the back seat of my car”). The three songs were outstanding but the first one was maybe too mellow.
1: Lovely Rita: a lovely Macca song perfectly built, acting picky I would say that I find here more craft tan real inspiration.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

Just a question :
Does anyone here have made one day a personal compilation of favourite Beatles songs on a CD-R of 80 minutes ?
I would like to do this but the choice of the songs is too hard for me.
If someone ever did this, I'd be curious to know your personal compilation.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

No, I haven't done that. But, if I made one and told you I'd be giving away my top 25! I don't think I've made a mix-cd since freshman year of college (1999). I was kind of an early adopter to MP3 players, I had a 512 MB Rio in 2000! You read right, 512 MB. Actually it might have been 256, it could store 100 or so low quality WMA's.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 27

Yeah of course. I made mix cds of their stuff years ago - that's how I got into it. It's not that hard for me to do but of course,I'm probably not so much a fan of their stuff beyond top 30,top 40 as most others here...
