Thumbs up Paul, which I use a lot paul-mccartney-thumb_gif  

I've noticed. I associate it with you.

I CAN'T PICK ONE but I guess I'll go with all the devilish grinning Johns and Georges a-hard-days-night-john-6ahdn_john_08_gifahdn_george_06ahdn_george_08 and saluting John is extremely useful john-lennon-salute_gif as is nail-biting Paul a-hard-days-night-paul-7 and these two remind me of WeepyC ahdn_paul_01 a-hard-days-night-paul-10BUT the one for which I have the softest spot in my heart is probably
a-hard-days-night-george-4 Smokin' George a-hard-days-night-george-4 (Joe removed it for a time and I shouted so much, and continued to use it by copying it from my signature, that he brought it back a-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-george-4)

New question: what are some Anthology tracks/bonus tracks/etc. that you're really glad they released because you couldn't live without them?

You must be fascinated with the Anthology @StrawberryFields91 ! https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....gy-tracks/

My list on post 4 of that thread still sums up my thoughts. 

I said

If You've Got Trouble : Ringo! And it's not a particularly bad song either, and it's quite a good riff.

And Your Bird Can Sing : Honestly any incarnation of this song would be a good incarnation.

One After 909 : Good groove, and as the Let it Be is a good song, that prooves that it is a good song as both versions are good.

Only A Northern Song : practically the YS version, but without the overdubs and with an arguably better vocal part, and a stereo mix - what more could you want? It's a precursor to This Song, really.

I Am The Walrus : see above

Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da: a great interpretation of a catchy song.

I'll Be Back : Harmonies! Also a heavier version suits it a bit better imo

I Wanna Be Your Man : An incredibly good lie performance - I almost prefer it over the original, and the original is in my top 10 Beatles songs.

Come And Get It : Fun tune

My favs:

Free As A Bird : gorgeous love it beautiful (cover girl lol)

That Means A Lot : i remember hearing the reason they didn't put this on the album was because it was so similar to Ticket To Ride .  And I love Ticket To Ride , so this is like its lovable little sister to me.

She Came In Through The Bathroom Window : i like the slower vibes in this song and it reminds me a lot of Free As A Bird

Because : omg the acapella is so good

That's fair.  I like it fine, but I never had the same connection to it that I did with Free As A Bird .

I don't listen to anthology often but I love the Strawberry Fields demos.

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.

I suppose I am. This question was actually more intended for bonus tracks, but I figured that wasn't broad enough so I added Anthology.

Anthology 1 : Some fantastic vocal performances, so it's a difficult field but the highlight for me is Leave My Kitten Alone , and George's solo is pretty out there.

Anthology 2 : And Your Bird Can Sing for its alternate rhythm more than just the hilarity, and I agree about Only A Northern Song , hearing the basic track is a nice alternative to the YS version.  You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) illustrates the frustrating nature of the Anthology series, an almost perfect stereo copy of the full track minus a section (for no apparent reason) found on the official (Past Masters ) version, itself missing a major section. We know why the original edits were made, this edit makes no sense.

Anthology 3 : Step Inside Love/Los Paranoias. But I also like the blissed-out She Came In Through The Bathroom Window , and the John demos which great and sad at the same time. But most of this release is even more geared to beating the bootlegs if were possible to top the previous ones and it's such a waste of opportunity.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.
