    Absolutely. Add to that some awesome vocals, a funny story, and a killer bassline, and you have what IMO is one of The Beatles finest moments.

    I like Act Naturally, but I recognise it can be pretty bland. Funny tho.

    Abstain from the second.

    I do believe Act Naturally was your nomination

    Sorry about the delay guys, had a rather big weekend.

    Drive My Car defeats Act Naturally (8-3) & Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band defeats The Long and Winding Road (7-6)

    Next round:

    Misery (Please Please Me) v Lovely Rita (Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

    &

    Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds (Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band) v Ticket To Ride (Help!)

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Lovely Rita first up; it's a bit of a ditty, but a superior one. I love the line "Took her home, I nearly made it; sitting on the sofa with a sister or two".

    Lucy second to make it a Sgt Pepper double. Has that gorgeous lysergic flickering effect they did so well & John's nonsense lyrics show a wry and peculiarly English intellence.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Lovely Rita - Very good tune, one of my favourites on SP and
    Ticket to Ride - Help was the first Beatles album I heard

    I find Lovely Rita incredibly annoying (sorry to disagree with you guys). Once again, for the second battle in a row, I have an opinion on both fights.

    Misery
    Ticket to Ride

    Lucy nearly got my vote, but only for William Shatner's version.

    Misery. Lovely Rita is yet another of the hundreds of lame nursery-rhyme-like Beatles tunes that any of The Wiggles could have written in 5 mins on the back of a napkin
    Ticket To Ride
