...which one would you be? And why?

Anything goes, guys. You can be a person who(m*) has to do with the Beatles, if you want, like Mal Evans, Yoko Ono, or even Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. a-hard-days-night-paul-2

You can only be one person, though. Choose carefully. a-hard-days-night-george-4 (Actually, I don't really care if you choose more than one person, I just want to hear your opinions! a-hard-days-night-george-9)

 

*I don't know how to use that word

Have fun!

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

Paul. He's not my favourite Beatle, but these are the reasons:

1. I'd get to work with John Lennon.

2. I'd be a mega-talented songwriter and musician: the most successful in popular music, in fact.

3. I'd have survived the 60s, avoided drug addictions and major scandal, and have come through to the other side reasonably intact (I'll gloss over the Heather Mills years).

4. I'd be having the time of my life touring the world at the age of 68.

Who/whom (adapted from another site):

Use the he/him method to decide which word is correct. 
he = who 
him = whom

Examples:

Who/Whom wrote the letter?
He wrote the letter. Therefore, who is correct.

For who/whom should I vote?
Should I vote for him? Therefore, whom is correct.

In the above example, you're saying "He* has to do with the Beatles", so who is correct.

*or she, but we'll ignore that

Since Joe picked Paul, my first choice too, and for the same reasons, I pick George.

Then I could not only be a beatle (with everything it means, like playing with John, Paul and Ringo), but be also a glorious guitar player, inventive and skilled.

I could be friend with lots of rock stars (who would think I'm a über-rocker in return) like, for example: Eric Clapton, I could work with Monty Python's crew and would be in the Simpsons.

And I would write "Something" the best rock ballad in this Universe, hence, everybody would love me.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Darn it Marcelo you got my first instant pick. a-hard-days-night-george-6

 

Umb. It's hard. I'd be… I'd be….. I guess John. Why? I'd have the guts to say my mind when I was a teen and look for my dreams and lead 3 awesome artists to the uppermost of the toppermost. I'd make a difference in this world. I'd be an awesome artist. I'd write beautiful stuff.And I'd have found the love of my life twice.

 

So that's why. I'm a frustrated writer, sarcastic son of a bull, activist, musician and rock star And John was all that.

Thanks, Joe! a-hard-days-night-john-6

Oh my goodness! I forgot to post mine! a-hard-days-night-george-2

I'd probably be Dhani's wife, but since she doesn't exist, I'll choose an actual person.

I'd be George Martin, 'cause I'd get to work with the Beatles and they'd all love me and I'd be famous for my work with them and things. Plus I'd get to live for a looooong time:

I'd pick george-martin as well. I wouldn't really choose to be one of the BEATLES, because I guess I'd rather produce the Beatles than BE one of the Beatles. 

If I was John, I'd have drug problems, have countless affairs, and there would be that whole thing with Mark David Chapman. (Shudders at mention of name. I guess he's the Voldemort of the forum!)

If I was Paul, I would live longer, but I would lose several friends during the course of my life. 

If I was George, I would be attacked by a weirdo with a knife, and die of lung cancer.

And if I was Ringo, I'd be short and often overlooked. My mom said the other day, "You know, I think Ringo was kind of ignored because he wasn't as good-looking as the others." Me: "What do you mean? He's adorable!" Mom: "Yeah, but the others were supernaturally good-looking." 

Plus, if I was George Martin, I'd get to tell the Beatles what to do! :)

If I'm not allowed to pick the same person as someone else, I would be Mal Evans or the apple01 scruff who climbed into Paul's house. 

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

I'm with Joe - I'd wanna be Paul, for all the reasons Joe listed. It's just cool how Paul lived through all that stuff and remained a well-adjusted angst-free decent human being without succumbing to displays of rock-star assholery (aside from the occasional minor display of insecurity like the silly "McCartney-Lennon" thing.)
