Ive earned a break and am chocking so what better time.

1.Your Favorite Beatle? John or George

2.Your Favorite Beatles song. No Reply.
3- Your Favorite Beatles movie. Help!

4- Your favorite Beatles quote. "We like'd to do another number, 'cause that's what we're here for. While Paul fiddles with his amplifier. I hope you can hear me, I'd be awfully disappointed if you couldn't. We'd like to do another number from one of our LPs, albums, long players, records... Oh yeah. It's a slow number and it's a waltz for all of you over 10. Some people play fast waltzes and some people play slow waltzes but we're gonna play a slow one and it's called 'Baby's In Black."  (John Lennon at the Hollywood Bowl - Baby's In Black intro 29/8/65)

5- A Beatles song that makes you cry. I dont think there is one.
6- A Beatles song that always cheers you up. No idea.
7.- A Beatles photo that makes you happy. A Day In The Life.
8.- Favorite Beatles album. Abbey Road
Number 9- A Beatles picture makes you angry/sad. No idea.
10- Favorite Beatles outfits. Shea Jackets era 


11- Favorite Beatles era. Mid 1964 to 1966
12- A Beatles song you know all the words to. Quite a number, the first one i remembered was Im Down.
13- Your least favorite Beatles song. Hold Me Tight by a country mile.
14- 5 Things you would change about the Beatles. Im not one for that kind of thing. Life happened the way it did and we got some excellent music. However one would probably be the way they split and all the difficulties between Paul and John and Paul and George. The way John died is another, senseless and i cannot get my head around it ever. Very painful to revisit so i dont.
15- Your favorite Beatles book. A few. The Beatles Anthology would be one but the John C Winn books are excellent as are Lewinsohns and Sulpy's.
16- Favorite art drawing from or of the Beatles. Havent got a clue.
17- Your favorite Beatles wife. I liked Linda.
18- Your least favorite Beatles wife. Heather for being a golddigging lying bitch, Yoko for trying to turn John into a Saint and selling everything and anything of his for a price in the pretense that John would have approved. Absolute bollocks.
19- Your favorite Beatles child. No idea. Cant say i have one. 
20- Your least favorite Beatles album. Yellow Submarine. 4 new songs and 3 of those arent that good.
21- A Beatles song you listen to when your sad. Dont really listen to the Beatles when im sad.
22- A favorite Beatles instrument. Ringo on his drums, very cool to listen isolated, and John on harmonica .
23- Favorite Beatles tribute band. Dont like them, if i want to see the beatles i'll watch the beatles.
24- Favorite staff members of the Beatles. Mal.
25- Favorite Beatles poster
 They ooze confidence, style and arrogance (in a good way). They knew they were good and miles ahead of the pack and i can see it in that. And i love how Johns looking into the camera whislt the other 3 are looking away.
26- Favorite Beatles moment. I have no idea. Would have to think about that one.
27- Your favorite Beatles concert. Probably the rooftop, one last outing of happiness for all four, even George got into it; either that or the Star Club in December '62 when they rocked heavily like in the early days - after this it was more polished.
28- Your favorite Beatles hairstyle. See picture above in Q28.
29- Your favorite video of the Beatles on youtube (could be anything, interviews, them goofing, whatever). Im Down In Munich 1966. Paul forgets the words, confers with John (who was always forgetting the words to his own songs) and still completely messes it up. You can see they are having fun, a rarity in 1966 when on tour. Always perks me up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....hqAwpK5nQ4
30- Least favorite Beatles concert. 30th June 1966 Nipon Budokan, Tokyo, Japan. Often out of tune, obviously didnt give a shit or want to be there (especially George and John, Ringo looks bored senseless) and hadnt bothered rehearsing. Complete mess. There are also a few bootlegged concerts in 1964 and 1965 where they were simply going thru the motions.

Yes, that's the one I was referring to earlier. I could barely get through the whole thing.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I don't really like that concert, either.

Hey, I just noticed something... this could go in one of my old threads, but around 16:20 or so John sings "I'm in love with me and I feel fine." :)

That's... pretty awesome. Which thread?

Randomly, I just remembered this is one of the concerts where Paul is missing half a toofus, which is always good for a yuk or two.

Is that true? There are enough incredibly stupid and money wasting scientific experiments that it wouldnt surprise me. We have had the perfect cup of tea, how to butter toast, why toast lands butter side down.  There has probably been highly expensive scientific 3 month experiment on how to put your trousers on; sit at a 46 degree angle with your left leg 12 degrees off the ground, thrust your trousers quickly in the air to reduce trappings, tanglings etc, ensure unbuttoning and/or unzipping is carried out, at a speed of 0.3 mph pull on the left leg 3/4's of the way up the thigh...

I wasnt ranting. I was perfectly settled in my mindset when posting that,  its true that a load of money is wasted on a number of silly experiments. There was one a while back about how to cook the perfect fried breakfast, it baffles me why that needs money spent on it.

At this current moment i want to break the tv due to the Scotland National Football team so best i dont post elsewhere otherwise there will be a lot of anger and swear words. Just when you think it wont get worse it does. Anyone want to trade National football teams?

Edit: I think the songs i listen to should become side 2 of Abbey Road as thats what im listening to at the moment and its got me more cheerful. Such a bright, hopeful, perfect set of songs.

Here goes:
1.Your Favorite Beatle?
Paul
 
2.Your Favorite Beatles song  
Hey Jude or Dear Prudence (but I love so so many)

3- Your Favorite Beatles movie  
A Hard Day's Night or Magical Mystery Tour

5- A Beatles song that makes you cry
Hey Jude

6- A Beatles song that always cheers you up
Hey Jude

I don't know how to post photos on here, but this one:

http://www.catanna.com/weblove68.jpg

Lovely photo

8.- Favorite Beatles album

The Beatles (White Album)

Number 9- A Beatles picture makes you angry/sad

This one:

http://www.maccafan.net/Galler.....gTapes.jpg

They look absolutely miserable here. Plus, Yoko.

I wish they'd swapped Not Guilty and What's The New Mary Jane for Revolution 9 on the White Album. I wish they'd never gotten involved with Allen Klein. I wish they'd released the 4 YS songs (and Across The Universe) as an EP as originally planned. I wish they'd never used Phil Spector and issued one of Glyn Johns' Get Back albums (with the famous cover updating PPM). And I wish John had never met Yoko. As a close 6th, I wish Brian Epstein had never died so he could have continued to be the steady guiding hand and they could've avoided the chaos that eventually led to their demise.

Hey Jude

22- A favorite Beatles instrument
Rickenbacker 360/12, Epiphone Casino

23- Favorite Beatles tribute band
Don't have one, don't care for them

24- Favorite staff members of the Beatles
Neil and Mal

I've got dozens from my youth, but I always loved this one:

http://data.whicdn.com/images/....._thumb.jpg

It was on my wall in high school and college

26- Favorite Beatles moment

What does this mean? Event in their history? Probably the recording and release of Sgt. Pepper...what a towering achievement!

1968 era

Right, I'll try now. I have a feeling this may take some time.

1.Your Favorite Beatle? Depends what in what way, but let's say George.

2.Your Favorite Beatles song Impossible to say, tho I've been listening to 'Here Comes The Sun' a lot recently.
3- Your Favorite Beatles movie  Hard Days' Night!
4- Your favorite Beatles quote  "I am alive and well and unconcerned about the rumors of my death. But if I were dead, I would be the last to know."
5- A Beatles song that makes you cry 'Because'
6- A Beatles song that always cheers you up 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand'
7.- A Beatles photo that makes you happy

or

8.- Favorite Beatles album Aaaah! At the moment, Abbey Road.
Number 9- A Beatles picture makes you angry/sad

The look of boredom on their faces says it all.
10- Favorite Beatles outfits

or

11- Favorite Beatles era 1963, when they were still new to fame, and enjoying it a bit more than 1, 2 years later.
12- A Beatles song you know all the words to all of them?
13- Your least favorite Beatles song 'Yellow Submarine'
14- 5 Things you would change about the Beatles Wish they had taken Paul's advice and not touched Klein with a bargepole and I wish they had enjoyed their success a little more (which nobody can change).
15- Your favorite Beatles book Don't really have one but I guess 'You Never Give Me Your Money'.
16- Favorite art drawing from or of the Beatles

 

(does this count)
17- Your favorite Beatles wife Pattie, I suppose. Never thought about it before.
18- Your least favorite Beatles wife I'm not going to say Yoko 'cause that will just be mean (and pointless) so I'll say ''No comment''. Oh, and Heather, she was a right bitch.
19- Your favorite Beatles child Dhani is pretty cool.
20- Your least favorite Beatles album Help!
21- A Beatles song you listen to when your sad 'You'll Be Mine' (Quarrymen, really)
22- A favorite Beatles instrument George's sitar or  Rickenbacker 360-12

24- Favorite staff members of the Beatles Brian.
25- Favorite Beatles poster


26- Favorite Beatles moment Oh, difficult one. When they get off the plane in America.
27- Your favorite Beatles concert They must have been pretty amazing to see at The Cavern. Maybe after they got back from Hamburg, once they'd improved considerably. Or the 6th July 1957.
28- Your favorite Beatles hairstyle Rubber Soul period for all except Ringo, who suits a beatle cut (shorter version) more than any of them.
29- Your favorite video of the Beatles on youtube (could be anything, interviews, them goofing, whatever) Them playing 'I'm Down' at Shea Stadium. I can never stop laughing at that.
30- Least favorite Beatles concert
The last one. Great location (yet again, pioneers). Great music. But it's the last one.

Okay, a couple of days to think about this, here goes...

1 - Your Favorite Beatle? John. No thought needed or required.
2 - Your Favorite Beatles song? At the moment, and this can only be an "at the moment" thing, it Revolution [take 20] - a still unreleased outtake that puts to bed the lie that everything worth releasing has been released.

3 - Your Favorite Beatles movie? Can't choose, but it's between A Hard Day's Night and Yellow Submarine.
4 - Your favorite Beatles quote? "I'd like to thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves, and I hope we've passed the audition..." I love how that the last line on the last album released by them AS a group. Or "We were just a band that made it very, very big, that's all," from the 1971 Rolling Stone interview.
5 - A Beatles song that makes you cry? Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight or, though not Beatles, but about them, Ringo's Early 1970.
6 - A Beatles song that always cheers you up? Here Comes The Sun or All You Need Is Love or... this list could go on forever...
7- A Beatles photo that makes you happy? I love Astrid and Jurgen's photos. If I had to go for one...

8 - Favorite Beatles album? All of them, but "at the moment" I am mainly listening to The White Album and Abbey Road (alongside The Esher Demos bootleg).
Number 9 - A Beatles picture makes you angry/sad? Another Astrid shot, John and George in Stuart's attic studio at Astrid's home after Stuart's death. John just looks so broken and lost, and George just being there for his friend. Astrid said of the photo that it wasn't planned but she looked at them and needed to take it. And then there's that echo of what would be used on With The Beatles as well.

10 - Favorite Beatles outfits?

11 - Favorite Beatles era? 1960-1970
12 - A Beatles song you know all the words to? All of them. Two things that stick in my mind about lyrics: Back when I was at school, and studying English Literature for a long-gone exam called CSE, one of our set poems was She's Leaving Home by John Lennon and Paul McCartney: I had a music book called something like The Greatest Rock and Roll Songs of All Time, and everything that The Beatles had covered, they gave their version of it - to the extent that the lyrics to Honey Don't included Ringo's shout-outs to George, and still credited to Carl Perkins!
13 - Your least favorite Beatles song? That's like asking who your least favourite child is! I'm sorry, I love them all.
14 - 5 Things you would change about the Beatles? Much as there are things I would rather were not, the lives are the lives and that is why we love them. You change things and you risk damaging the beautiful gift they gave us.
15 - Your favorite Beatles book? Hunter Davies' Authorised - for all its flaws, his witness reports of the writing and recording of Sgt. Pepper is a remarkable insight. Anything Lewisohn. Revolution in the Head. The Beatles at the Beeb.
16 - Favorite art drawing from or of the Beatles? Another of my favourite Beatles books is called The Art of The Beatles by Mike Evans. The last artwork he discovered for it, included as an epilogue and used as the fly sheet, is a painting by Barry Agar called the Trojan Horse. It is a remarkable achievement, and I have had to hunt the web to find a complete copy. It's moreorless their Beayeux Tapesty. Incredible.

17 - Your favorite Beatles wife? Who am I to judge what makes them happy?
18 - Your least favorite Beatles wife? Hopalong.
19 - Your favorite Beatles child? Who am I to judge?
20 - Your least favorite Beatles album? Gun held to my head, Yellow Submarine! Only four sodding songs! The ep was a much better idea and then let Capitol create an album out of it and whatever else was available.
21 - A Beatles song you listen to when you're sad? I don't really have one. If I need cheering up, I listen to The Beatles. Could be Revolution 9 and I'm still grinning.
22 - A favorite Beatles instrument?

23 - Favorite Beatles tribute band? Probaby The Bootleg Beatles. There used to be a great tribute band called The Cavern Beatles. Don't know if they're still around. They had a great John Lennon.
24 - Favorite staff members of the Beatles? Alf Bicknell.
25 - Favorite Beatles poster?

Beautiful Richard Avedon shots of the group issued as posters through various routes. I created my own t-shirts from these. John and George get worn the most.
26 - Favorite Beatles moment? John messing up the lyrics to Don't Let Me Down on the rooftop. I just love his gooning.
27 - Your favorite Beatles concert?

mja: If you mean The Cavern Beatles that play there, yes, they are still around. Whether they're the same as when you saw them though, I don't know.
