    I thought this was pretty neat. Asks you to pick Beatles songs in head to head battles and then eventually gives you your personalized list of your favorites in order. Worked well. It's not an elimination tournament - will ask you the same songs compared to other songs. Give it a try. Took me about 45 minutes to get my list.

    I've been on this board long enough to know that there are some people who would really enjoy this exercise as much as I did so I bumped the thread. If it's beneath you then just let it go without the unneeded rudeness.

    All The OP did was just post a link that looks like a fun little Beatles related activity….

    I did it for a bit, but didn’t make it through to do the list.
    I will say that my list would look much more different than yours (the OP).... fun stuff

    All I know is that when you look at a complete list of the songs they did you're looking at the best songs by any group ever.
    Damn they were good.

    I was looking through some of the pair-matchups.
    Some were no-brainers, some were tight choices and some were like the one you mention.

    This is pretty cool and I'm curious myself as to my results. Almost 50% now. Gotta get back to it later.

    Well, that took longer than I expected. The top 4 seem right, and the bottom has all of the bottom dwellers. Most everything else is probably relatively in the right general areas. I do have issues with the exact order of a bunch of choices. It was still an interesting exercise.

    My only complaint is that they split up Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight/The End. So, you can see that when any of them came up I treated them as the same song. I didn't quite do that with the other medley, but Sun King/Mean Mr. Mustard/Polythene Pam all ended up right next to each other. I did this by hand many years ago and results are probably still similar.

    I tend not to like ranking Beatles songs so my only two complaints are that the results are numbered & vertical. ;)

    Okay, I bit, which says a lot about my current priorities in life, and just because I'm positive absolutely nobody will be happy with it,* here's my top 30:

    1. Strawberry Fields Forever
    2. Penny Lane
    3. I'll Be Back
    4. Please Please Me
    5. I'm Only Sleeping
    6. I'm So Tired
    7. And I Love Her
    8. Hey Jude
    9. Rain
    10. Tomorrow Never Knows
    11. I Am the Walrus
    12. She Said She Said
    13. Things We Said Today
    14. Dear Prudence
    15. A Day in the Life
    16. Here Comes the Sun
    17. All My Loving
    18. I'll Get You
    19. Something
    20. A Hard Day's Night
    21. There's a Place
    22. And Your Bird Can Sing
    23. I Feel Fine
    24. Eleanor Rigby
    25. Glass Onion
    26. Julia
    27. Nowhere Man
    28. Come Together
    29. Let It Be
    30. Yesterday

    * I'm not happy with it either. Given the chance, I would reorder may of these tracks ("I Feel Fine" beats "And Your Bird Can Sing," "Julia" beats "Glass Onion," and "Something" most certainly beats "Here Comes the Sun"). Also, only 8 1/2 songs by Paul seems wrong. But overall, I guess you could still call them my top 30.
