Damn you, 4iiiis!! Now I know how Sophie felt!

Anyway, I went for Girl because I've been on a kick lately. I played it for some friends the other day who said they hadn't listened to the Beatles in a long time, but one of them kept saying that Rubber Soul was her favorite album. We were driving in my car, so I popped in a CD and blasted Girl. All of us were singing and grooving, and we all agreed that John's vocal (as well as those beautiful, perfect harmonies) was phenomenal! (I'm kind of obsessed with John's vocal on Girl, btw.)

But Woman... my goodness! That song can make me weep, it's so beautiful!

Maia, you know I am with you 100& on the sheer brilliance of "Girl." I have to the decision that it is the most underrated song by the Beatles- period. It's a majestic work of art.

And "Woman" is such a magnificent, stunning, incredible song. I know three separate people who have had it as one of their main wedding song dances- and we did as well, though I didn't count myself.

But seeing as I have been OBSESSED with "Girl" I went with that choice.

However, when we finally get into the DF analysis I can almost GUARANTEE you I will become obsessed with "Woman" to the point of absolute devotion to nothing else but that song for months. So I think it was only telling that you made this poll now. I am a good PR spokeswoman for "Girl."

Gem, flaw-free, perfection, gorgeous, amazing vocals, YOUR FAVES COULD NEVER.

Although I'm feeling pretty good about my choice because, as Scruffie wrote, Girl is "[g]em, flaw-free, perfection, gorgeous, amazing vocals"... I just listened to Woman again and... wow! So amazing. In the video, starting at about 2:54, I wonder what John is saying to Yoko as they walk through the park... it looks like something funny, because Yoko looks like she's trying not to crack up.

He was funny all the time, so I imagine so.

BTW: my mom wouldn't have blinked. "Woman" is a song she loves with a fiery passion.

Me, me, me: I just voted for "Woman" and this without any hesitation

When I heard "Girl" for the first time, I skipped it and thought "what a boring song" ... Anyway, it took me quite a time, before I started to like this song at all. Now I find it a good song, but not as outstanding, as many other think.

"Woman" is pure perfection to me, the lyrics, the melody (the video ) and also a symbolic song of John's (short but powerful) comeback. For me personally, it just can't be beaten by any other love-song from John

I voted Woman. Sorry, but it is the most perfect song in existence (outside of some other John songs) and Girl just falls a little short in the romance department, which was my focus since I didn't have any other choice but to create a focus.

But f*** this was a hard poll! I liked it though. Please create more.

Default Where can you actually vote?

I don't see it.

I prefer "Woman" because of the gorgeous melody, the emotion expressed and the respect he shows to the female gender.

"Girl" -- the work of a young man who both wants to lord it over and yet deeply fears women, probably out of his need of them. I can't help thinking of the old "vagina dentata" trope when I hear the song. This female in the song is hideous and powerful, and yet he calls her a "girl."

It's a fascinating look into the man's psyche, and there's a lot more I could say, but it's too early for me right now.

Always love your analyses, Wilde. The poll is at the very top! I wonder if they're different for each person or something. Maia said she couldn't see who voted.

"Woman" is a truly singular love song. I almost feel guilty for voting for "Girl." But not that guilty...

Well, I fully agree with you, Scruffie: You should feel guilty...

"Girl" is a nice love-song, no more, no less; but "Woman" is truly outstanding

Oh, no, "Girl" is not a "nice love-song." It's not really a love song and it's not NICE. At all. It's a song about longing, about obsession, about humiliation, about need, about anger, about fear, and about misogyny. Love doesn't even really enter the picture!

Oh yeah... Girl reveals a dysfunctional youthful attraction... but if you have ever been attracted to someone you knew was bad for you, then you truly get what makes this song so cool.

Plus, it's much more than just a nice song... it's sexy as hell!

...and just to show you how awesome and sexy that amazing song is, here is an adorable Italian guy (I think he's Italian, anyway) who calls it "one of the most amazing performances as a lead singer by John Lennon"... and I must agree! (Omg, he's so damn cute when he says, "Sounds easy, but it's not" at about 1:00... guess I'm just a sucker for an Italian accent. )




Oh... and here's a pretty trippy vid:
