The best Beatles songs: Ultimate bracket

There have been hundreds of articles written about the best Beatles songs of all time and all of them seem determined to outrage die hard fans.

"How can they rank 'Cry Baby Cry' so low?"
"How can 'Wild Honey Pie' be higher than 'Honey Pie'?"

We are hoping to end these meaningless debates with a bracket, voted on by readers of this site, to determine once and for all what the best Beatles songs of all time are.

Using our new community features, we will post polls in the Beatles group that include all the songs on a particular album. You may vote for more than one song but please limit your votes to only the best songs on that album, not necessarily every one you enjoy.

In order to participate, you must sign up for our community but we promise not to spam you or share your information with anyone else. We're hoping this poll encourages lots of conversations and helps us begin to build a fun new community. We also hope to do this with many other bands in the future.

Once polls are closed, the results will be included in this article so be sure to come back often to track which songs are making it to the final bracket.

To cast your vote in ROUND TWO, visit our Beatles group!
