I understand why they put "We Can Work It Out" as the A-side (Or rather, the primary A-side) but I've always preferred "Day Tripper".

I like PS I Love You better than Love Me Do

I like Day Tripper better than We Can Work It Out

and I like I Am The Walrus better than Hello, Goodbye.

Releasing Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever together as a single was the stupidest thing ever.

For the rest I agree with the A and B sides.

If Paul played those piano licks more props to him, I want to play the piano like that.

Alternatively: B-Sides that are better than their A-side. 

What do you think? Are their any? I would go with Old Brown Shoe > TBOJAY, Rain > PW and This Boy > IWTHYH.

Yeah, sure "Let It Be" is beautiful and elegiac, etc., but I find the B side, "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" to be infinitely more pleasing because that day, they all went quite mad.

The following people thank Pineapple Records for this post:

QuarryMan, Von Bontee, Beatlebug
