Ultimate Battle of The Beatles

    Thanks El Gato, that was a really well run and enjoyable game.

    When I was a kid my dad had a pub band, and listening to the songs as they were posted made me realise just how much of his set was Beatles songs, including several I'd completely forgotten about. However it's clear our musical tastes differ, he sang quite a few that I really don't care for and voted against in this competition. You're supposed to rebel against your parents musical tastes though, aren't you? :D

    A bit more modern and heavier.... Sounds intriguing. I think Metallica could fit that bill, perhaps.

    Stones could be a good shout, but they have an awfully huge back catalogue, with a fairly clear division in terms of quality between the first half and the second.

    The Beatles were perfect IMO because the catalogue is pretty big, but not ridiculously so and the quality was consistent all the way through.

    Out of interest, I decided to google best Beatles song and got a link to a list compiled by Rolling Stone magazine. They had the same number 1 as we did, but our other two finalists were ranked 28th and 30th.

    There was a link to the magazine’s list of 500 greatest songs of all time and ADITL was only ranked 28th, with 5 other Beatles songs ahead of it! As the Americans would say, go figure!

    I really enjoyed that too, I think the final was the only one I missed bit I would have voted a day in the life. Great job putting in the effort and running the polls every day

    I forgot to vote in the final, some many great songs

    Well done El Gato

    Just a heads up to fellow fans. The Peter Jackson 3 part documentary is releasing at the end of November and the above is a companion book to it, just arrived today from amazon. Haven't cracked it open yet but it's huge!

    I have the similarly enormous Anthology book and I've only ever skimmed through it. Really looking forward to the Jackson series - I saw "Let it Be" on a dodgy VHS years ago and it was really interesting.
