    I'm opening three simultaneous polls in order to choose those songs that are likely to be in each personal Top 20 Beatles songs list. The pre-selection of songs corresponds to the resulting tracklist from a previous poll series for the creation of a Beatles compilation. The objective is to obtain a list including the 20 most voted songs from the three polls. The polls will be open for 1 week.

    NOTE: You don't need to choose a total amount of 20 songs from the polls, since some of your actual Top 20 Beatles songs may not be present in the lists.

    The other two polls:
    POLL: Top 20 Beatles songs (1/3)
    POLL: Top 20 Beatles songs (3/3)

    This list does a better job of capturing my favorites than the previous list of 20. I would have added "For No One"

    That's 13 more, on top of the seven I voted for in the first poll. That doesn't leave much room for the third poll, does it?

    Edit: added Norwegian Wood and A Day in the Life on double-checking. Already up to 20. That doesn't leave ANY room

    Also non poll tracks I list highly.... I thought i was the only one, especially with regard to the latter, one that seems almost universally dismissed.
