"Are we considering each song in a medley as separate?"
For now, yes.
What? Nobody has nominated the famous Number Nine song.
I think that perhaps there is a reason for that, Tod.
Wow, there are quite a few good ones left but I'll nominate...
Across the Universe
Martha My Dear
Only 4 more songs are needed to start the tournament.
She Came In Through The Bathroom Window
Old Brown Shoe.
Someone needs to nominate "Day Tripper"!
or Octopus' Garden, I Want You, Carry That Weight, Doctor Robert, With a Little Help From My Friends, etc.
carry that weight
she came ion through the bathroom window.
Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey
she's leaving home
how is this going to work, are the songs goign to go at it at random, or will there be some division like pre psychadelic verus post?
Maiden, I'm sorry, but your post came a little late. "Everybody's Got Somethin to Hide..." and "Carry That Weight" were songs #63 and #64.
Before I post the first bracket, here are rules for the tournament. Read them carefully.
Tournament Rules and Notes
[ul][li]There are 64 songs in the tournament.[/li][/ul]
[ul][li]Brackets are in alphabetical order(i.e A Day in the Life goes against A Hard Day's Night).[/li][/ul]
[ul][li]Read the the latest posts carefully before voting, to make sure you are voting for a song in the current bracket.[/li][/ul]
[ul][li]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.[/li][/ul]
[ul][li]Please do not vote twice by using socks. That will lead to your votes being voided.[/li][/ul]
And now, the first bracket.
Round 1 - Bracket 1
A Day in the Life (Lennon/McCartney)
"I heard the news today, oh boy. About a lucky man who made the grade..."
A Hard Day's Night (Lennon/McCartney)
"Yeah, it's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog..."
A Day in the Life
"Hard Day's Night" is one of my favorite early Beatles songs, but I have to go with "A Day in the Life." It's simply brilliant.
Also, I have a suggestion. This tournament is twice is big as the Nintendo games one, meaning it will take over two months if it proceeds at the same rate. Maybe you should do two brackets at once in the early rounds?
I was thinking of doing that. It would help speed things up a bit. I just hope it doesn't lead to any confusion.
a hard day's night was my first favorite beatles' song. so it gets:
1 vote, hahaha!
Definitely "A day in the Life" I love that song
Although a hard day's night is good too, it just isn't as good as A day in the life.
A Day In The Life
"A Day In The Life" is one of the most overrated Beatles songs ever. So I'll vote "A Hard Day's Night".
A Hard Day's Night
A Day in the Life.
One of the best.
