    "A Day in the Life" wins: 7-3

    And thanks to General Kenobi, I realized that I had 62 songs instead of 64. So, MaidenLumpe, your nominations have been added. :)

    Now, I will change the format by having two brackets at once. Do not confuse this with a 4-way bracket. It's still between the two songs in each of the brackets.


    Round 1 - Bracket 2


    Across the Universe (Lennon/McCartney)

    "Sounds of laughter, shades of life, are ringing through my open ears, inciting and inviting me. Limitless undying love, which shines around me like a million suns. It calls me on and on across the universe..."

    All You Need is Love (Lennon/McCartney)

    "There's nothing you can do that can't be done. Nothing you can sing that can't be sung. Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game. It's easy..."



    Round 1 - Bracket 3


    And I Love Her (Lennon/McCartney)

    "Bright are the stars that shine, dark is the sky. I know this love of mine, will never die. And I love her..."


    VS


    And Your Bird Can Sing (Lennon/McCartney)

    "You say you've got everything you want, and your bird can sing. But you don't get me, you don't get me..."

    The first one is a pretty tough choice. I'll go with "Across the Universe."

    I don't think I had ever heard "And I Love Her" before except for the one time I saw the movie A Hard Day's Night (I'm pretty sure it's in there). I found the song on the school network and gave it a listen. It's a good song, but in my book "And Your Bird Can Sing" is easily better.

    what a disgrace. How can all of you vote for all you need is love? Have you ever even listened to across the universe?

    There will be no criticizing others for their choices. Everyone's free to vote for whatever song they want. And there will also be no voting under socks, sleazo. Your "Across the Universe" vote under Lamb-chop is voided.

    In bracket 2, "All You Need is Love" edges out "Across the Universe": 8-7.

    In bracket 3, "And I Love Her" wins: 9-6.


    Round 1 - Bracket 4


    Baby You're A Rich Man (Lennon/McCartney)

    "Baby you're a rich man. Baby you're a rich man. Baby you're a rich man, too. You keep all your money in a big brown bag, inside a zoo! What a thing to do!"


    VS


    Blackbird (Lennon/McCartney)

    "Blackbird singing in the dead of night. Take these broken wings and learn to fly. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise..."



    Round 1 - Bracket 5


    Can't Buy Me Love (Lennon/McCartney)

    "I'll give you all I've got to give, if you say you love me too. I may not have a lot to give, but what I've got I'll give to you. For I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love."


    VS


    Carry That Weight (Lennon/McCartney)

    "Boy, you're gonna carry that weight. Carry that weight, a long time. Boy, you're gonna carry that weight. Carry that weight, a long time..."
