POLL: Top 20 Beatles songs (3/3)

Discussion in 'Music Corner' started by Hombre, Nov 25, 2021.

    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 (2/3)

    No Julia? No vote. I could vote in so many different ways on any day, but this is a glaring omission to this forum member. No disrespect intended.

    A lot of great White tracks are not included and a couple of average ones are

    Aside from Julia, Mother Nature's Son would be a welcome inclusion

    Of course, there are many great or important songs that are absent from these lists; but they didn't pass the filter in a previous poll series. The pre-selected tracks obtained 60% or more votes in those polls.

    "Dear Prudence" and "Something" are clearly the most voted songs here.

    Correction: "Here Comes The Sun" and not "Something" is the most voted song in this poll.

    I much prefer this Beatles era vs. the ones covered in the other two polls - in particular, I wouldn't put anything from the first poll in my top 20 - so I was fairly generous with my voting:

    The Fool on the Hill
    Lady Madonna
    Hey Jude
    Dear Prudence
    While My Guitar Gently Weeps
    Happiness Is a Warm Gun
    Something
    Here Comes the Sun
    You Never Give Me Your Money
    Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End

    I think most here on SHF would as well. ( I am an early period person).

    The none of the above option for poll 1 was 5.8%. Poll 2 was 1.5%. Poll 3 was 1.6%.
