Any songs you think they did better live than in the studio?

Also, please name the live performance that you like.

For me, Dizzy Miss Lizzy is infinitely superior in its live version, at the Hollywood Bowl. The lead guitar sounds like something from a hair metal song (which is rarely a good thing but in this case it is compared to the studio guitar), the backing is extremely heavy for 1965 and John's vocal is fantastic.

'Boys' and 'I Wanna Be Your Man' are better live in general; I can't think of any performance specifically tho.

Actually, all 'Please Please Me' album tracks are probably better live. 

Agree about 'Dizzy Miss Lizzy', tho my go-to is the 'Real Love' CD single as I love John's spoken intro.

I forgot about the PPM LP, that one is basically a live album anyway so it's not surprising they often surpassed it.

The only studio cut from 'Please Please Me' I can think of that might equal the live performances is 'Twist And Shout'.

I absolutely love the live version of Roll Over Beethoven which is included on Anthology 1 - Ringo's performance on the ride cymbal is from another planet! I'd prefer it to the version on With The Beatles any day, in fact to any other version, really.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I have heard some live versions of George doing Something. I enjoy them more than the studio version. Here's an example.

Personally, I find the intro to 'Something' is needless as is the extended instrumental break, even George thinks it's time to restart singing in the above video.

The Bangladesh performance was good.

 

And then there is this.
