    Welcome to the second Census tournament, dedicated to the music of the Fab Four!

    Nomination Rules/Notes [EDIT: Nomination is over]

    • The tournament will consist of 64 songs. I will add 32 myself and you will get to nominate the remaining 32. See the list below for the songs already in the tournament.


    • There will only be 2 nominations per person. Do not try to nominate more songs with a sock, please.



    Tournament Rules and Notes

    • There are 64 songs in the tournament.


    • Brackets are in alphabetical order(i.e A Day in the Life goes against A Hard Day's Night).


    • Read the the latest posts carefully before voting, to make sure you are voting for a song in the current bracket.


    • If you have not heard any of the songs in a bracket, abstain from voting or try to find a way to listen to the songs.


    • Please do not vote twice by using socks. That will lead to your votes being voided.

    Mastadge, "I am the Walrus" is already in the tournament. You have to nominate two songs that are not already on the list of songs in the first post. After we get 64 songs, the tournament will begin.

    A point of order: Are we considering each song in a medley as separate? e.g. Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End as 3 distinct songs? Sun King medley & Sgt. Pepper/With A Little Help... also are commonly played as medleys...

    Anyhoo, my nominations:

    Nowhere Man
    Don't Let Me Down


    Gosh! So many good songs not yet on the list!!

    (USSR, Lady Madonna, Blackbird, I Feel Fine...)

    This sounds cool! Come on folks, let's get 64 & get it going!! :D
