That ends Round 33. This time we lose "Wild Honey Pie" and "Rocky Raccoon".



BEATLES SONG SURVIVOR - ROUND THIRTY-FOUR

All the songs this round are from The Beatles (The White Album).

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.  "Back in the U.S.S.R." (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: McCartney
2.  "Dear Prudence" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Lennon
3.  "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (Harrison); Lead vocal: Harrison
4.   "Helter Skelter" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: McCartney
5.   "Glass Onion" (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.

This round is a sign of things to come later in the game after we've already eliminated most of the songs. All five of these songs are amazing, and all in different ways. How can you really compare "Dear Prudence" and "Helter Skelter"? They're both perfect for the type of song they are. Well, time to get to work.....

1) Glass Onion 
2) Back in the U.S.S.R. 

3) Dear Prudence  :'( :'( :'(

1- Back In The USSR
2- Dear Prudence
3- Glass Onion

Hardest round yet,and as Matt said a sign of things to come later.All five songs are brilliant,so it's going to be sad to see two fall this early. :'( :'( :'( :'(
It's certainly a lot easier to vote when there's a Ringo song in the five.

Yeah, five amazing songs, and I can't yet decide how to vote.  I know I really, really want "Dear Prudence" to survive this round, though... Hmmm....

2 Glass Onion
3 Helter Skelter

This great event will start tomorrow in Paris.
As I must go to Paris soon, I'll go to see this exhibition that is described as fantastic and really moving in the press.
Among all, there is a 10 minuts film realized by Raymond Depardon, a french  journalist and film-maker who was in New York the evening Lennon had been murdered,  he took his camera and went to Central Park, filming people, without any comment.

Well, I'm sorry to see us lose "Back in the U.S.S.R" and "Glass Onion", but thankfully "Dear Prudence" survived the round.

This round is much easier for me:

1) I Will
2) Honey Pie

3) Birthday

Sorry Paul... but, they gotta go before the other two.

Can you imagine what George must have felt like when he found out about Manson's interpretation of their music, and especially his song, "Piggies"? He must have felt like the whole world had gone crazy. I can't imagine what it must have been like to have been a Beatle ... to go through those crazy years of touring, and then the horrors of the last tour with the KKK threats, Beatles burnings, the trouble in Japan and the Philippines, and then the Manson family's violent acts. It's amazing they didn't lose their minds.

I just came across a website that contains the dialogue from a lot of the Beatles' press conferences. I just read through the one they did before their 1966 Japan concert... it's amazing how much more hostile the press became by this time, and how well the Beatles always handle the questions. It's HERE, for anyone who's interested in reading it.

And HERE is the index for anyone who wants to read other Beatles' press conferences.
