I read the news today, oh boy....

http://necaonline.com/lennonnews1.html

First read about it in THIS article. I opened the page hoping to see that Michael Jackson was going to be forced to sell the publishing rights to the Beatles songs, now that he's faced with severe financial difficulties. I'd love to see Paul be able to get his songs back.

A small article about the Lennon Action Figure follows the Jackson story.

My fellow Beatle fans, you're depressing me with all these votes for "Happiness Is a Warm Gun"!   :(

I consider it one my best.  It's a beautiful song, and I really like all the things that are happening in it.

I think this is my favorite on The Beatles album.

Me too, but it's too late to save it now. It's way ahead in the voting.  :'(

The votes for "Helter Skelter" are killing me as well. "Helter Skelter" and "Don't Let Me Down" are tied for 2nd place, so one of them will have to go as soon as I tally up the points.  :'(

That's it for Round 92. We had a tie, so I used the until-now infallible point system. For the first time, we still don't have two clear "losers", because there was a tie for 2nd and 3rd place. Here's how the votes panned out: "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" - 18; "Don't Let Me Down" - 9; "Get Back" - 9; "Dear Prudence" - 8; "Helter Skelter" - 8; "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" - 2.  So, we lose "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" for sure. But what about the second song to get tossed? I decided to go back to the way the regular votes came in for those two songs ("Don't Let Me Down" and "Get Back"), and give the edge to the song that had less regular votes. "Don't Let Me Down" had 3 votes (as did "Helter Skelter") but "Get Back" had only 2. Therefore...  "Don't Let Me Down" will be the other song to go this round.




BEATLES SONG SURVIVOR - ROUND NINETY-THREE

This is the last round for the fourth run-through. There are six songs left, but we'll still be voting off two songs, and listing a 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.  "Let It Be" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: McCartney (From Let It Be)
2. "Two Of Us" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: McCartney and Lennon (From Let It Be)
3.  "Something" (Harrison); Lead vocal: Harrison, with McCartney (From Abbey Road
4. "Carry That Weight" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: McCartney, with Lennon (From Abbey Road)
5.  "Here Comes The Sun" (Harrison); Lead vocal: Harrison, with Lennon and McCartney (From Abbey Road)
6.  "Come Together" (Lennon/McCartney); Lead vocal: Lennon (From Abbey Road)

(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.

I'm really surprised "Carry That Weight" has made it this far. It HAS to go this time.

1) Carry That Weight
2) Two Of Us

3) Let It Be

I didn't realise Get Back was that close to getting the punt.

Time to start the Beatles Christmas messages!  :D



"The Beatles Christmas Record" was a fan club only special release. Recorded on October 17, 1963 (the same day they recorded "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and "This Boy") and released December 6, 1963, this was sent out only to Beatles Fan Club members. Only about 30,000 copies were pressed.

Listen to it here: The Beatles Christmas Record (1963)

2 Let It Be
3 Something
