As I mentioned in my earlier post I am going to pick my favorite Beatles song and after doing a little research here is how I am going to do it. There are about 208 Beatles songs depending on how you count some songs. I am including their covers and some of their very short songs for the sake of thoroughness. This is not going to be an exact science of course. I wanted to kinda  put the songs together in a somewhat random way while still keeping the better songs from matching up very early on. I did this by taking a random persons listing of all the Beatles songs. I don’t agree with their rankings but it seemed like a good jumping on point. So without further ado here are the first 16 songs that are being matched up. I will post results tomorrow. I may do a little commentary on the pairings but no promises:

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

v.s

Tomorrow Never Knows

 

All Together Now

v.s

Strawberry Fields Forever

 

When I’m Sixty-Four

v.s

Rain

 

Her Majesty

v.s

In My Life

 

Anna(Go to Him)

v.s

Girl

 

Chains

v.s

No Reply

 

Yellow Submarine

v.s

I’ll Be Back

 

Don’t Pass Me By

v.s

Within You Without You

 

I realize that a lot of the people who read this blog are not really Beatles fans but I would welcome people’s opinions on the songs. Check back tomorrow for results and another 16 songs

A Return to Action

It has been just over two months since my last post. I could say I stopped posting because I got really busy which is true but the bottom line is I just haven’t made the time for it. I really regret that because I have enjoyed doing this blog in the past. I have written primarily about more serious matters and haven’t done a lot of more fun posts. I would like to do more of that. A great deal has happened in the last couple of months, most of it good. My best friend got married, I met a wonderful w0man and have been dating her for a coming in on two months, the delivery program is off the ground, and I have began training for another half-marathon. All in all a very good couple of months.

I will write more about what has happened soon but like I wrote before I want to do some more light things as well. So what I am going to do is something I have been thinking about for a little while. I am a huge fan of The Beatles. I have not been a fan my entire life but they are something I came to as an adult. Well here of late that has been pretty much all I have been listening too. I have made my way through their albums time and time again. I love starting with their first album, Please Please Me to their last Let it Be. I have also listened to Past Masters which collected their singles. I don’t have a lot of musical knowledge but I know what I like. So what is all this leading up too…? Well I thought I would rank the Beatles songs. Why would I want to take on such a big endeavor? Mainly because I kind of love lists and also because a few people have asked me on multiple occasions what my favorite Beatles song is and I haven’t been able to commit to just one.

I haven’t decided exactly how I am going to do it. I was thinking of a tournament or something like that. It looks like there are about 208 songs. I am going by the Beatles UK discography and including Past Masters. I am not including instrumentals or songs that were less than 1 minute long. As soon as I figure out exactly how this is going down I will post it.It is good to be back
