Greetings!

Today is the three year anniversary of @krista4's incredible 204 to 1, Beatles thread.   :D ❤️ :wub: :banned: :towelwave: :excited: :clap: :hifive: 🎉🎧
Link to Krista's thread

35 Beatle Diehards from the FFA thread sent in 1-25 lists back then. I thought of the idea a little bit after Krista started her thread and it went much better than the TEN we expected to get.  Link to 2019 (1-25) Composite Rankings Results    How much will those results change?

On the heels of "Get Back", Krista and I are back to do the 1-25 ranking all over again.  We would love to have you, your friends, family, co-workers and any other Beatle fans you know send me 1-25 lists. I think we can blow away the 35 number from last time!

Krista and I have been planning some of the details for when we release the NEW COMPOSITE COUNTDOWN the past few days. Very exciting news!!   Krista will be providing NEW WRITE-UPS for each song! How cool is that? 

Deadline - Sunday, January 30, 10PM
PM me your lists and lists of your friends any time before that.

Before submitting your list, please carefully review it and make sure there are no duplicates.
I don't mind a change or two, but please don't be a BinkyTheDorkman and send in several changed lists.  :wub:  theDorkman.  Just wait towards the end if you have to do that.  
Please number your choices.  #1 is best.  #25 is lowest.   

Same MVP style as before, your #1 choice will earn 25 points, #25 will get one point.


Here's the Krista approved list of songs:
  
    I added Free As A Bird and Real Love, distinguishing them from others in that they were original songs.  Basically limiting this only to albums and singles released while they were a band (not on Anthologies later), plus those two originals released later. 

I've ordered them by where they fell on UK albums, plus singles.  I just think of them this way and think many people would.  

Also I put Abbey Road medley as a whole (one song) as I did in my countdown.

I just spent the entire morning spinning every record and taking notes. My mom played these records non stop all throughout my childhood, and I still play them often. So I had to get it right.  With some honest cuts, I was able to get to thirty five in my pool.  Amazingly NONE from Revolver, and five or six from Peppers.  

Now the fun begins.  I'm pretty sure I had my top five before I even began, but what will be number one?

I started compiling mine the other day when I read there was going to be a new one in the Get Back thread.  Started off by going album by album and just picking all of my faves and that got me to 75 or so.  Then I was able to get to about 40 pretty easily.  Then it got harder.  Felt like I was picking between my children.  The last 5 were the hardest.  But I got down to my 25 yesterday evening.

The cool thing about this is if you ask me next week or next month or next year, there would be fair amount of change.  I would say there are probably 10 or so that probably would always be on my list for one reason or another and would never change.  But the others, are a snapshot in time right now.

Fun exercise and I can't wait to start reading!!!!

That's funny, because mine hasn't changed much in thirty years.  Probably because they are all so great and different.

Will our top 25 be made public? Speaking just in case someone else,  not me, but someone else decides Octopus’s Garden is ranked #1
:lmao:   I think last time Getz identified during the countdown the poster who ranked a song highest.  So this person, totally not you, would have been named.  We can do it however you guys would like, but my preference is only to have people “out” themselves if/when they wish, more like your U2 thread.

So who do I send this list to anyway?

For entertainment value, my 25-32 left off are...in no particular order

No Reply, Help, And I Love Her, Across the Universe, Love Me Do, and I'll Follow the Sun.

Just curious why this is.  I've listened to the Beatles basically my entire life and at this point I've heard the songs so many times that there will be almost no surprises as I go through the list.  Is this more you just want to give love to some other fantastic songs and have them in your top-10 or are you genuinely saying that some of these songs are not longer your favorites?  If the latter, is it because of just hearing them too much?

I blame @krista4

One for sure will be leaving my top 10 for the only reason is that I played it too much three years ago and now simply can't listen to it any longer. LOL.

There are several songs from three years ago that I just like more now.

One of my best memories of three years ago was clicking on the Youtube of each writeup and listening to the song while I read the writeup. Can't wait to do that again.

And after the song was over, I would continue, often times for hours listening to the random Youtube Beatles selections that followed. Great memories and there is nothing like waking up to a Beatles tune playing in your head.

Already have four lists!  :clap:
I just looked at the above from last time.  I waited until after I did mine to check it out. Kinda shocked.  Expected more from the FFA. Mine is certainly not chalky in comparison.  

I think I only had eleven of those twenty five on my list, lol.  Everyone seemed to be biased towards the later stuff last time.  I'm probably the opposite.

Well, I guessed I missed this announcement in the "Get Back" thread, so what a nice surprise to log on today and see this.  I have thought frequently over the last three years that I would like a re-do on my top 25, as I don't think I gave it the thought and analysis that it deserved.  I'm sure there will be some changes.  And new write-ups that no one will read?  Hooray!

:clap:

13 albums,  I'll play 1 per day while working (M-F).  Gives me a day, or 2 spare before the 30th to submit my picks. 
But they are all like 23 minutes long, lol.  

Also, this is much harder to do album breakdown then LZ was.

Perfect, i can put each one on repeat from 9-5.  This is serious business.


You might have a bit of trouble with the White Album and the "Singles, etc." list on timing.  Maybe combine Yellow Submarine and Magical Mystery Tour together, too.

My album breakdown...

Abbey Road-4, Peppers-4, Hard Day's-3, Let It Be-3, Singles-3, Help -2, and Rubber Soul had -2.  Four others had one each. PPM, FS, WTB, and White.  None from Revolver, but they would all be 35-55 I bet.

None from Revolver is a shock.  I'd be surprised if anyone else skipped that one entirely, but then again, there's so much to choose from...

No Hard Days Night is like the opposite of me.  White is always tough for me.  I actually really dislike the one EC covered, and most of it just bores me.  The only one I did pick was probably because the jam bands all do it cool now, lol.

Here is my breakdown by album and by composer (I didn't pick any covers)

A Hard Day's Night - 3

Abbey Road - 2

Beatles For Sale - 1

Help - 1

Let It Be - 1

Magical Mystery Tour - 1

Please Please Me - 2

Revolver - 4

Rubber Soul - 3

Sgt Pepper - 1

Single - 2

The Beatles - 3

Yellow Submarine - 1

The only album I didn't have a cut from is With The Beatles

Composer

George - 2

John - 13

John and Paul - 3

Paul - 7

Yep, a little John heavy, but I tried not to let that influence me.  The list is what it is....It's a snapshot in time.  If I were to make a list of solo Beatles songs, I would probably have more Paul and George as I feel their solo careers were overall better....

Totally in. I wasn’t visiting the FFA when Krista did her countdown and the original top 25 lists were sent in, but I gave a sense of my faves when I hippled the thread later on. I may have changed my mind about some things since then, but my 1A and 1B are still the same and probably always will be. 

I’ve asked my friend who did a list for the Zep countdown if he wants to do a list for this one. He’s obsessed with the Beatles to a degree that Krista might blush at. We were in high school when the Beatles albums came out on CD. He took the train to and from school — we went to an independent school that drew from all over the Philly area. On at least one occasion, he used his train money to buy the Beatles CD on the day it came out, then cajoled someone into driving him home. 

ETA: He also owned Press to Play on vinyl, cassette and CD. Three copies of Press to Play!
