This is easy considering The Beatles released their 5 best albums essentially back to back.

Rubber Soul , Revolver , Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The BEATLES, and Abbey Road .

Here's a harder challenge, if you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring 5 discs and each disc had to be from a different band, what would you bring?

For me, it would be Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band (mono), Queen's Greatest Hits (We Will Rock You version), The Dark Side Of The Moon, Songs About Jane, and Master Of Reality.

  

read the question Fiddy!!a-hard-days-night-george-10

  

I've already made it clear that I can't read, accept it a-hard-days-night-john-7a-hard-days-night-george-10paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

In that case, I'll bring 1. It's just one disc a-hard-days-night-george-10

Does this mean I can't bring Reality?

@Dark Overlord when you said 'band' did you mean 'artist?'

Band, artist, are the desert island police going to throw our LPs in the CD depending on that? a-hard-days-night-john-6

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

It could be an artist or a band

It appears it is time for a new question!

What is your favorite type of eel

Why are people so annoying

What has happened to the world

Aren't eels eely

Unfortunately, I don't think I can come up with anything suitable. Would anyone else like to ask a question (on what seems to be turning into the "SF91 asks a weird question and everyone else answers it" thread)?

1) I don't have much of a preference. Electric eels, maybe?
2) Because they're not you
3) What always happens to the world -- it turns, and we turn with it. Because the world is round.
4) Yes!
5) Also yes! Hmm, I can't think of a good question right now though. Oh, how about this: What is your favourite movie (besides the Beatles ones) and why?

Right now I'd have to nominate probably For A Few Dollars More because I love spaghetti-Westerns to death, and I *think* that's my favourite.

What's the weirdest question someone's ever asked you?

 

For me: "Aren't eels eely?" 

 

Edit: Damn, just too late for this to be funny.

 

In answer to Bb: Tough one. Very tough one. I'd go for Airplane/Flying High (depending on where you live), because it's so stupid and I love that.

I will ask a question if you explain types of eels and your favorite ones especially (mostly because I didn't even realize there were multiple types of eels until that posta-hard-days-night-ringo-8and now I'm curious).

 

If you had to give up one Beatles album so that it poofed out of existence, which would it be and why?  You must answer with your first instinct upon reading this though you may include if you changed your mind from your instinct.

Though my answer is not really first instinct since I wrote the question I'll say Yellow Submarine because I'db losing only 4 beatles songs (since 2 were released through other means).

I realize this question is slightly evil maybe even blasphemous, but I'm curious about your responses.

Edit: oof other people posted. What's it called when you do this a-hard-days-night-ringo-8to a post that already has posts in between it by the time you actually post?

First instinct? If I had to give up one from my collection, Please Please Me . I don't listen to it all that much. However, that would logically never work because it was their debut and I can't just poof their debut out of existence. So I guess I'll go with Magical Mystery Tour , because it's a short album and I'd still have the singles, and I'd be much better able to live without those songs than live without Hey Bulldog and It's All Too Much .

Yes, this question is evil and blasphemous. Thank you for asking it. john-lennon-salute_gif

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!? How is this possible? How have you lived this long in the world without knowing that EELS are the best and EELIEST things in the world?!

Also, @Beatlebug, electric eels are not eels. They are knifefish

NO. I refuse to even consider such a thought. 

Wait , can we do compilations? If so, Red Album

Oh. Bother. It seems that saying electric eels are my favourite eels because electricity makes things cooler* is like saying WMGGW is your favourite Beatles guitar solo... it's not even a Beatle's guitar solo. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Okay, since I like spaghetti-Westerns so much, I'll go with spaghetti eels, how about that? a-hard-days-night-george-9

Everyone wants to get rid of the best albums! You would obliterate me from Beatledom if you obliterated Let It Be ! And MMT! 

Fine! I'll obliterate Please Please Me because there's not too many songs I care about compared to their other albums.

Also, Beatlebug, I'm not sure if you meant that as a joke, but for those of you who don't know, spaghetti eels exist!!!!!!

Eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels, eels!!

Hmm I guess you can choose compilations as long as you can explain why you chose that specific compilation over all the many other compilation albums they have.  I'll consider it a sub question of the first one.

I'd get rid of A Collection of Beatles Oldies because it's existence as a UK release is so pointless, and so oddly placed in hindsight (and if I get the name wrong that just goes to show how pointless it is).  The other compilations seem much more purposeful and worthwhile.

I don't watch that many movies, but my favorite would probably be Coco, the Pixar movie.

I can think of a couple off the top of my head:

- "Do you speak Indian?" (I've been asked this multiple times)

- "Is that your dad?" (My classmate in fourth grade who had met my dad before, talking about my grandpa who clearly looked over 80)

- "Does the bread go in the toaster or the microwave?) (my 9-year-old brother asking me how to make toast two days ago)

My first instinct was Yellow Submarine , but I couldn't live without Hey Bulldog or It's All Too Much so I would have to choose Beatles For Sale
