Default Vote for the Beatles in important UK poll!


Url:
www.guinnessworldrecord.com/music/vote/voting.asp

There you can vote for the best number one hits in the UK of all time. The result of this poll will be much publicized in the UK next year, because 2002 marks the 50th anniversary of the British charts, and it is important that the Beatles make the #1 position.

Here are the Beatles UK #1 hits:

From Me To You
She Loves You
I Want To Hold
Can`t Buy me
AHDN
I Feel Fine
Ticket
Help
Day Tripper/ We Can Work It Out
Paperback
Eleanor Rigby/Yellow Sub
All You Need Is Love
Hello Goodbye
Lady Madonna
Hey Jude
Get Back
Ballad Of John & Yoko

Don`t forget "Imagine" (which is currently at #2 in the poll)


As you see, faves like "Strawberry Fields", "Yesterday", "Peny Lane", "Let It Be", "Please Please Me", "Love Me Do", "Something" and "Come Together" never made it to #1 in this UK chart, so don`t vote for these songs, they will be excluded from the final poll.

Thanks for posting this, Wolf; I did my duty! I couldn't pull up the Current Top 100, though, so if anyone can, let us know how it's going.

There are some songs that have been voted for, that have never reached #1 in the UK. These songs will not be included in the final poll. This also means that all the votes for "Pennylane/Strawberry Fields" will not be counted in the final results. as this poll is just about UK #1 hits.

Easy to say ;too little Beatles songs, but other than that, a fast count comes to only about 15 songs here which I don't like.
