Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

That's all she wrote for pre-Help Beatles. I'm pretty sure that there are only five songs that haven't received one vote yet; A Day In the Life, Strawberry Fields Forever, Helter Skelter, Here Comes the Sun and Let It Be. They might have received a vote from somebody earlier who left the game but I don't think so.

Sorry that I left you guys with little time to get your next nominations in. I was off the grid these past few days. Hopefully everybody can get the votes in but if not I'll make the decision on Thursday if I'll extend the voting or not.

Also, Henrik and Honorio, are you guys back? I won't vote for you until Thursday.

Sleep well:

24 Golden Slumbers
23 She Loves You
16 A Hard Day's Night
15 Day Tripper
15 Paperback Writer

Close: Rain, Across The Universe

RULES: Vote for 5 Beatles songs using this format:

5: Song
4: Song
3: Song
2: Song
1: Song

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

Songs will be eliminated every Monday and Thursday and a new vote will begin each day. In the event of a tie all songs receiving the elimination vote will be eliminated.

40 or less left: Eliminate 4 rather than 5.
20 or less: Eliminate 3
10 or less: Eliminate 2 for two cuts
Final cut: Eliminate whatever is left (There will be 6 songs or less left) and declare a winner!

The tiebreaker rule will still apply for every round.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

3: Revolution
2: Help
1: And your bird can sing

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

Not a bad cut. Three were on my list and the other two were close. I'm really surprised everyone considers Helter Skelter a top 30 Beatles song. I would have thought it would be a polarizing song at least when it comes to the top 75 or so.

5: Come Together
4: Something
3: Eleanor Rigby
2: Dear Prudence
1: Hey Jude - This wouldn't be here if it weren't for the ending that goes on and on.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

John, I'm back and here's my vote:

5: Rain
4: Penny Lane
3: We Can Work It Out
2: While My Guitar Gently Weeps
1: Across the Universe

I can't believe "She Loves You" and "A Hard Day's Night" are gone.

2: You Never Give Me Your Money
1: Blackbird

Only one new entry for me this time; it’s possible Dana Carvey’s Jimmy Stewart impression ruined “Blackbird” for me. A pretty, well-constructed song, its lyrics are borderline trite, and it sits in the slightly uneasy category of songs about the Civil Rights movement by white rockers…and it’s nowhere near, say, U2’s “Pride.”

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

Let's see:

5: Yesterday
4: Hey Jude
3: Penny Lane
2: Nowhere Man
1: Here, There and Everywhere

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

The top 30 should not include:

5: Dear Prudence
4: Across The Universe
3: We Can Work It Out
2: Come Together
1: Norwegian Wood

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

Very sad to see my #1 pick "Golden Slumbers" go this week :(

5: Rain
4: Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
3: Helter Skelter
2: And Your Bird Can Sing
1: Tomorrow Never Knows

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

5: Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
4: I'm Only Sleeping
3: Penny Lane
2: She Said, She Said
1: Across the Universe

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

I voted for Helter Skelter, and am doing so again, so only 4 songs that haven't received a single vote yet.

5: Nowhere Man
4: Helter Skelter
3: Across The Universe
2: Dear Prudence - No songs left I really dislike, so now it's just a matter of voting off the filler.
1: Revolution

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

Oh I missed that. There still is one song that I missed then (I think).

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

And that song is Help. That's almost more surprising than Helter Skelter.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

5. Blackbird
4. Here, There And Everywhere
3. The End
2. And Your Bird Can Sing
1. I'm Only Sleeping

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

5: Happiness Is A Warm Gun
4: We Can Work It Out
3: Nowhere Man
2: Helter Skelter
1: Across The Universe

Here's another vote for "Helter Skelter", although it is great. I hope to help save "Rain" from elimination this time. It's one of the Beatles' best.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

I just noticed Dumbangel voted for Help but I don't think it's been voted for before this week.

Penguin, I agree with you, but even though it was on the close list this cut I have a feeling it's going to stick around for a little bit longer. I hope so at least.

Re: Beatles Survivor: Cut 35

This cut, as we have only 31 songs in the game, I decided to listen to all of the tracks I could vote for and make an all new list. So, I left the fourteen ones I like so much that I would never even think of putting in it, and listened to the other seventeen. As a result, the voted ones continue almost the same, with the only exchange of In My Life for a more acclaimed song.

Yes, John, the song you were referring to was Help, but with Dumbagel's vote for it, Harold Wexler's for Let It Be (oh, no!) and mine for my new entry, I'm glad to see that "all" (i.e., two) of the absolutely intact songs are top 10 ones for me!

5: You Never Give Me Your Money
4: Tomorrow Never Knows
3 New entry) A Day in the Life: Why do everybody love it so much, at the point of considering it (see the AM songs poll) the best song of all time, except me? I think the reason is that, before listening to this song for the first time, I had already read so much incredible comments about it, and lots of people claiming it was the greatest song ever created, that I had my expectations frustrated after knowing it. The orchestra part really astonished me, as for Lennon's vocal and Ringo's contribution, but I still don't find it so excellent as everybody do. The main melody is somewhere between regular and good, thinking about of quality and creativity. Despite that, all the other aspects amaze me; maybe that's the only upsetting thing.
