ROCK WARS 10 (ACROSS THE UNIVERSE): Round 2, Match 5
Okay boys and girls, here we have 32 truly unique takes on some of The Beatles most endearing songs (all taken from the movie Across The Universe), which will be pitted against one another, Match by Match, Round by Round, weeding them all out until they get to the FINAL MATCH, which will have our two favorite songs from Across The Universe face against one another to see which one emerges as Grand Champion of our latest (mini) Rock Wars!
As always, this TOC should be voted using a very simple criteria, which song do YOU like more, which do YOU feel you would rather listen to, and which would YOU say is ultimately more deserving to move on. Easy.
Pretty basic really. Songs are matched up, you all vote on the one you like more, the winner goes to the Next Round, and we do this over and over again until the Rounds are Over. I do ask that you all give objective opinions and votes here, listening to All songs and arguments here within this TOC with an open mind, beginning to end, and base your honest votes from that.
So without further adieu, why dont we get started with our First of Many matches to come, in HCRs latest Rock Wars, Favorite Across The Universe Song!
So what say you all. Which of these songs will move onto the Next Round, and which will make us cry out for Yellow Submarine?

If I Fell was very pretty, but like in the first round I felt the lack of the complex harmonies in the original left it a little flat. I wanted to vote for it anyway. Despite myself, I found myself getting into Come Together, so Come Together it is for me.
Once again, Joe Cocker trumps my Come Together burnout. Going with Joe.
I want these clixed: Doc Savage, Fu Manchu, Tarzan, The Shadow, The Green Hornet & Kato, Conan, Solomon Kane, The Phantom, King Kong, Killraven, Black Orchid, Manhunter (Paul Kirk), Xemnu the Titan, unclixed Kirby Fourth World characters, and Lilith, Daughter Of Dracula.
ULTRA-HUMANITE of the SSOSV Clan!
ROCK WARS TRIO WINNER: RUSH!
