"Favorite Beatle Poll" Results...

Thanks to those who voted in the "Who's Your Favorite Beatle?" Poll. The poll has ended and the results are George: 11 votes, Paul: 10 votes, John: 9 votes, and Ringo: 5 votes. It's a bit surprising to see that George beat out John and Paul. Good for him! I may run the same poll again in the future as it's an interesting one.

This month's poll is at the right. What's Your Favorite Beatles Movie? Technically "Magical Mystery Tour" was a TV special, but we'll consider it a movie.

By the way, if you're torn between more than one movie, you can vote for more than one :)
