You can help with the recording of just one song. Which song do you choose, and how are you involved (i.e. what instrument you play, playing George Martin and helping to produce it, etc.)?

Ooh, "Helter Skelter"! I'd love to have been an extra guitarist on that one – it's one of the very few Beatles tracks I can play in its entirety, more or less. And if they didn't need another guitar, I could employ my (entirely self-taught) (and entirely incompetent) saxophone skills to contribute to the noise-freakouts…

 

Ugliest album cover?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

Only one album? :)   I've got a few minor tweaks I'd like to execute. On With The Beatles, I'd switch "All I've Got To Do" and "All My Loving" - two fast ones followed by a slow one, like the other early albums. Also, I'd prefer Rubber Soul to end with "Wait" instead of "Run For Your Life", so I'd do a bit of jumbling there. Finally, side 2 of the White Album has too much Paul, and side 4 too little, so I'd try to even that out, maybe move "I Will" to side 4.

 

OK, you have the ability to time-travel back to when John was still living. What piece of modern-day music (like, from 1990 or later) do you take with you to play for him and BLOW HIS MIND (whether in ecstasy or horror, doesn't matter) at how freaky and futuristic it is?

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Arcade Fire's Funeral.
Let It Be… or Abbey Road as last?

I think Tomorrow Never Knows' question went unanswered,but i really have no idea. As for sun king's question, i suppose Abbey Road would have been better but then again it's merciful it wasn't because perhaps people were not quite as disappointed for beatles' breakup(if that really had any effect)

Do you think that the line"lift my head" in I'm Only Sleeping refers to john or whoever it is that is trying to wake him up?(im asking this because there was a really weird translation of that line in finnish edition of cant buy me love)

John- Instant Karma

Paul- Maybe I'm Amazed

George- Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp

Ringo- I'm The Greatest

 

If The Beatles were starting out today, would they be successful? Would they reach Lady Gaga status?

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

Yes, by default. The actual question for me is would they be so loved now, or would they basically end up an indie band who makes it big, an Arcade Fire, if you will. But back to this;
New Question:
You could correct 1 production error of George Martin's, what would you change, how, and why? (for example {not true in the slightest for me} someone would say the solo in
In My Life. George should have had a solo on guitar. It was a mistake because it dates the song. That's paraphrasing what a member said months ago - not honest to me in the slightest.)

The orchestration on Good Night. I know its meant to be that way but it is way too sweet, clingy and clawing. A very sickly arrangement that makes it very difficult to swallow and keep down. Oh and remove the orchestral work on WMGGW on Love and Grow Old On Me on the Lennon Anthology.

 

Should the Magical Mystery Tour lp be ripped up and Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane taken off and placed back on Pepper for itunes accouts, sorry future releases, to make everything nice and ordered, sorry period relative?

John – Bring It On Home To Me/Send Me Some Loving (Rock 'n' Roll)

Paul – Dont Let The Sun Catch You Crying (Tripping The Live Fantastic)

George – Roll Over Beethoven (Live in Japan) (edit: just remembered George's cover of The Everly Brothers Let It Be Me so i'll go for that instead)

Ringo – Whispering Grass (Don't Tell the Trees) (Sentimental Journey). I heard this on a bbc documentary broadcast to promote Let It Be's release in 1970 (via a mp3 download – im not that old) and quite liked it.

 

Of all the songs that the beatles covered either in concert or at the bbc but didnt include on their albums would you have liked to have been? (For example i'd have loved I'm Talking About You and/or Soldier Of Love.)
