Man, I love "Hey Bulldog" (who doesn't howl along with Paul to this song?)

I'm really not after Paul, though it may seem that way by the past few rounds. This has to be John's greatest creative period, and Paul was still doing lightweight stuff in comparison. Both of Paul's songs this round are really good, and I like them a lot, but... I have to save the two Lennon compositions because I just think they're awesome.  :)

1) The Inner Light
2) Hello Goodbye

3) Lady Madonna

Great round. All great songs.  O0

But not for long. Looking ahead at the songs that will be in the next few rounds, Paul is about to record a lot of his greatest material.

I love all these songs.  You gotta love a rock song that takes some its lyrics from the Tao Te Ching as "The Inner Light" does.  And "Hello Goodbye" might be fluff, at least lyrically, but it's mixture of pop and psychedelia is great.  And "Across the Universe" just might be my favorite song by The Beatles.  Okay, maybe I've said that before, but it's way, way up there.  Only my favorite version is the one you'll find on Past Maters Volume Two.  Quoting from the CD:

Quote
This one is commonly known as the "Wildlife" version because it first appeared on 12 December 1969 on a charity album for the World Wildlife Fund, and was adorned especially for that LP with wildlife sound effects.  But it had been recorded much earlier, in eight takes on 4 and 8 February 1968, as a rival to "Lady Madonna" for the Beatles' March 1968 single.  In March 1970 Phil Spector re-worked this original tape, omitted some of the original instrumentation in a new remix, omitted the sound effects, slowed it down and added an orchestra and a choir for Let It Be.

In other words he did everything he could to ruin one of the greatest songs John Lennon ever wrote.  I can barely listen to the Let It Be version, knowing the damage he wrecked upon that song. 

1 Lady Madonna
2 Hello Goodbye
3 Hey Bulldog

(I surprise myself with these picks. :))

I was thinking of linking to this version for this round too, but felt like we could have a round just for "Across the Universe" if I threw in all the versions of it. I love the version on the Anthology album too. So, here they are for anyone who's interested and doesn't have these versions:

Across The Universe - Wildlife Version

That ends Round 30. This time we lose "Hello Goodbye" and "The Inner Light".



BEATLES SONG SURVIVOR - ROUND THIRTY-ONE

This round, we'll hear the first songs recorded for The Beatles, commonly known as The White Album, released on November 22, 1968:




As before, vote off two of the following songs, and list an alternate third choice that will only be used as a tie-breaker if needed. The three surviving songs from this round will be brought back later in the game to compete with the other rounds' survivors.

1.  "Revolution 1" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Lennon, with McCartney and Harrison
2.  "Revolution 9" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: N/A
3.  "Don't Pass Me By" (Starkey); Lead vocal: Starr
4.   "Blackbird" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: McCartney
5.   "Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me and My Monkey" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Lennon

(When I end a round and start the next, I'll need to take the songs from the previous round down so that the next round's songs will fit on the website. Therefore the links in each round will still show up, but they won't work once that round has ended.)


You can join in the game anytime. You don't need to have been voting from the beginning to play.

1. Revolution 9
2. Don't Pass Me By
3. Everybody's Got Something To Hide

Over the years this has become my favourite Beatles album, variety and competitive edge to the writing carries the weaker tracks to make an impressive double album ( Led Zep's Physical Graffiti is another example of the double working when it really shouldn't ).

A nice wee joke in Men In Black when Tommy Lee Jones is showing Alien technology to Will Smith, he point out a tiny disc as a music carrier and mutters " I'll have to buy the  white album again " ;D
