"The Great Songs" is a popular music game thread that will cover the recorded legacy of a group or individual performer(s).

The primary criteria to be used in the selection and eventual voting process are -

Performance - Music - Lyrics

Secondary criteria can include production values utilized within the recording, cultural / historical significance, and your own seemingly inexplicable idiosyncrasies.

If the games are successful, future artists in the pipeline are - The Beatles (Solo Recordings), The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel (Duo plus Solo), Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (Group plus Solo) and others to be determined.

This is the selection thread for "The Great Songs of... THE BEATLES"

You may make up to three selections per calendar day.

No cover tunes are allowed - Only original material.


We will continue making selections until we reach at least a total of 100.

I can extend the game by an additional 25 - 50 to reach a maximum total of 125 - 150 if necessary and this decision will be made by general consensus.

You may access this link to choose your selections -

Seriously? How can the answer not be ...


#1 Hey Jude
#2 Let It Be
#3 Yesterday
All three are great selections but in this thread, each tune needs to selected only once to merit inclusion in the series of games which will follow.

Feel free to submit three new selections which haven't yet been nominated - There's a list of selections which have been made so far that you can check - And then look through each of the following posts to ensure that you're not choosing tunes which have been nominated after the list was posted. I try to update a new list every 20 to 25 selections.

You can access this page for suggestions which haven't been nominated yet -

1. Till there was you

2. Eight days a week

3. What you’re doing
"Till There Was You" isn't eligible for selection as it's a cover written by Meredith Wilson - as stated in both posts # 1 and 22 - No cover tunes are allowed - Only original material.

Eight Days a Week was already selected - Feel free to swap it out with a different tune.

We have 106 selections as of this post and there will be a hard cap of 128 so that 8 games of 16 selections can be played -

That leaves only 22 selections open - and there are still plenty of good tunes which have yet to be selected.


Here's the link to the selections - Remember - No covers
