    "Are we considering each song in a medley as separate?"

    For now, yes.

    I think that perhaps there is a reason for that, Tod. ;)

    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

    • 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.

    "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.

    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" is one of the most overrated Beatles songs ever. So I'll vote "A Hard Day's Night".
