Default Song Battle#2: Yellow Submarine vs Octopus\'s Garden

The two light-hearted underwater Ringo songs.
Choose the one you like more and and say why.

Personally, I will go for Octopus's Garden. I used to like Yellow Submarine more before but it gets old after a while. The guitar riffs alone makes OG a better song in my opinion.

Octopus's Garden - 1
Yellow Submarine - 0

I'd pick Octopus's Garden because Ringo wrote it and also because when I was about 4 years old that was my song, I had no idea who sang it or wrote it but it was my favourite.

Octopus's Graden, Yellow Submarine is so generic

Octopus's Garden has better lyrics, and is a little underrated. I pick this one.

Well, since I feel for Yellow Submarine
at this point in the voting tract, as well
as the fact that I think Yellow Submarine
is the quintessential Beatle children's
song, I'm gonna go with YS!

Octopus's Garden, hands down and no doubt about it for me.

Octopus Garden, since I always laugh when I listen to it, or at least, it makes me smile

They are both good. I guess I prefer at the moment The Yellow Submarine.
