That ends Round 31. This time we lose "Don't Pass Me By" and "Revolution 9".



BEATLES SONG SURVIVOR - ROUND THIRTY-TWO

This round we continue with songs from The Beatles, (The White Album), as well as "Hey Jude" and "Revolution", the A and B sides of the "Hey Jude" single, released on August 30, 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.  "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: McCartney, with Lennon
2.  "Revolution" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Lennon
3.  "Cry Baby Cry" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Lennon, with McCartney
4.   "Good Night" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Starr
5.   "Hey Jude" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: McCartney

(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.

Not yet. It looks like it would be worth getting, though.

As for my votes this round.... geez, which to pick first? "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" or "Good Night"? They're both so bad in so many ways. But, like A-Rod and Cano in the post-season, you come to expect more from your "star", so on that basis, I have to vote Paul's off first because we expect badness from Ringo. Paul can be so much better if he didn't swim in the sap pool so often.

1) Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
2) Good Night

3) Cry Baby Cry  :'(

I hope "Cry Baby Cry" will survive this round... I love it.

1   Good Night
2   Cry Baby Cry

3   ob-la-di, ob-la-da

I'm no fan of ob-la-di.. but it does have a nice rhythmic feel to it.. The version on anthology is far superior to the one that got released.

2 Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
3 Cry Baby Cry

I really like "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" myself, I just like the others better.  I've heard John say he hated "Cry Baby Cry" and I could never understand why.

What a round.   It is a shame to kick off Ob-la-di, as Gant says it has a catchy tune but...........

Me too Matt

I remember being a bit miffed, when I bought the "White" album, to find Revolution was not the same version as the single. I love them both now but the single has the edge. That guitar intro and Lennon scream  :D gets me every time.

Which version were you familiar with first?  Me, I grew up with both versions, as my mother was a huge John Denver fan, and The White Album I've had since I was about eight or so.  Being familiar with the John Denver version, it used to be hard for me to comprehend that it wasn't an original John Denver song, because it so suits his personality and fits so well with his repertoire of songs about nature.  But to me there's something hauntingly beautiful about the Beatles' version, as it was probably written after or during Paul's visit to India, and seems to suggest a deep desire to be a "Mother Nature's Son" while he was surrounded on all sides by a mania that had only grown more scrutinizing since the original days of Beatle Mania.  Whereas John Denver could really rejoice in Mother Nature, Paul McCartney could only long for the ability to be able to rejoice in Mother Nature -- so Paul's original version, in a way, strikes closer to home for me, as a momentary celebration of all things non-materialistic while living in a very materialistic world.

Both versions are great for what they have to offer.

1) Wild Honey Pie
2) Rocky Raccoon

3) Mother Nature's Son

I like Paul's "Mother Nature's Son" a lot. I was surprised that when Paul was compressing his entire career down to about 30 songs for his 2002 U.S. tour that he included it. It still sounds great when he performs it.  (I haven't heard the J.D. version.)
