Twist and Shout

In My Life
Yesterday
Help!
You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
A Hard Day's Night

Found this one harder than the other list. Many more songs here I like equally. And where was Hey Jude?

Agreed. Anyways, here are my picks:
We Can Work It Out - love the meter shifts.
In My Life - all about that keyboard solo!
I Feel Fine - I really love Ringo's drumming and the vocals are pretty great too.
No Reply - LOVE the bridge.
Nowhere Man - a classic, grew up with it from the Yellow Submarine film.
Rain - This song just has a great vibe and feeling to it, and again, I like what Ringo does with this one.
Ticket To Ride - I love drumming to this song, Ringo's change of the beat really spices things up halfway through the tune.

My love for Ringo's drumming definitely shone in my picks this time. Lots of great songs in this batch, though. I suspect a third and possibly fourth batch in the future?

-Marc.
ATTENTION - I am currently taking a hiatus from running any Survivors at the moment,
 but feel free to check out others' that are running in the Polls/Survivors Forum!!! Maybe in the coming months, I'll start up again with a different band if there is interest...

In some ways, that was even more difficult than Part I. SO many good songs. It breaks my heart that I left some of my favorites from the choices off too.

We Can Work It Out (Life is very short, and there's no time for fussing and fighting my friend. Good GOD this song is amazing.)
In My Life (I've always had a special place in my softie heart for this one.)
Do You Want to Know a Secret (I'll say it again - George was SO underrated. Love this one, and IMO this is one of the true gems from the early stuff.)
No Reply (UGH. So good.)
Rain (Classic, classic song. Classic Beatles harmonies too.)
Drive My Car (Yes, I'm gonna be a star.. Great song.)
Day Tripper (Another classic.)

Songs that I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally wanted to vote for but couldn't:  Help!, Nowhere Man, You've Got to Hide Your Love Away, A Hard Day's Night (anyone who hasn't seen this movie really should - it's hysterical, and just a really fun time), The Night Before, Ticket to Ride. I still really dig the Help! soundtrack, and sad that I just couldn't vote for all of those songs in the poll.

Only voted for two here, Yesterday and Help!

I feel like Paperback Writer is one glaring omission here. I would certainly have voted for that had it been here.

Agreed on Paperback Writer.  When my brother and I were kids, he used to sing "Guy who writes books" instead of "paperback writer."  I still find it kinda funny, especially when you try to sing the staggered harmony vocals. :biggrin:

This one was a little easier than the last one.  I chose

We Can Work It Out
In My Life
I Feel Fine
Nowhere Man
Rain
Hard Day's Night
Day Tripper

Some of the softer, very early stuff (All My Loving, And I Love Her, etc.) is a little "meh" to me.

Well, I couldn't include everything, but after posting the poll and looking at the song choices again, Paperback Writer and You're Gonna Lose That Girl were the two that made me think, "They probably should have been on there."
