First a word- if you don't know the songs, request 'em on Macca radio or YouTube 'em- don't complain you don't know 'em.

Any Beatle fan who doesn't have at least an idea of what these songs are (i.e. Pirate Song) is short on their Beatleducation.

That said-

I vote for Here Comes the Moon, shameless ripoff that it is.

Sorry dude its "Hong Kong Blues" or "Pirate Song". Because yesterday (Monday) was the deadline and these two songs were tied, so we are now in Sudden Death.

Huh!? The Pirate Song is NOT a song that every Beatles fan should know -- Hell, it's barely even a song. FYI, if a song hasn't ever been released in any form, it's not that essential.

If I'm still in time I vote Pirate Song - for the simple reason i believe (and I'm talking here as a Python fan - almost as big a Python fan as Beatle fan) that Eric Idle wrote it so its not per se a George song.

I'm know I'm nit-picking but otherwise I wouldn't be able to decide!

I guess if they should remaster "Extra Texture", "The Pirate Song" would be a bonus track.
