What if I liked Rain better than Paperback Writer?

Are there anything like that with you guys where you like the b side better than the a side of one of their singles?!?!

Revolution over Hey Jude.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

What about the singles that shouldn't have been? Yellow Submarine is the one that pops to mind. How Eleanor Rigby got only partial acknowledgement is shocking!!

Old Brown Shoe over Ballad of Joko.

IATW over Hello Goodbye.

DLMD over Get Back.

This Boy over IWTHYH.

BYARM over AYNIL

Strawberry Fields over Penny Lane.

Wasn't "Day Tripper" the A-side? As far as I can remember, PL/SFF was the first of their "double A-sides."

EDIT: Either way, I like "We Can Work It Out" better. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Day Tripper was their first Double A side, followed by Rigby/Submarine and then PL/SFF.

"Rain" is the obvious one that leaps to mind immediately.

I could be really perverse and claim that I prefer "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" to "Let It Be" but that's not really true! (Now, if it was the full uncut 6 minute take of "...Number" rather than the edited version that appeared on the single...)

Even though I'm not entirely sure what song it is on the B, I GUARANTEE you that I prefer it to "Long And Winding Road"!

Thank you! I was pretty sure it was either that or "I Me Mine" but was too lazy to look it up. (Even though it would've been a lot less trouble than typing up this explanation, obviously. I never think these things through.) 

Another thing that I've wondered: Exactly how did their double-A side singles differ from the normal ones - did the label actually indicate "Side One" on both sides?

They only differed in that it was considered to singles, so the sales were divided by two.

That reminds me of a blonde joke:

Q: How do you keep a blonde busy for hours?

A: Write "please flip over" on both sides of a piece of paper.

Except under Capitol, where Penny Lane took the A-side for itself (and got to #1, allowing it to be included on 1).

I agree.

Generally, I think Across The Universe should have been a single, not Lady Madonna, and Something backed with Here Comes The Sun. I'd probably go with All Things Must Pass ahead of any of the other four singles from 1969/70.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

No. The US had a policy of listing #1 sides as two separate singles. SFF got to #8
