George never had a moustache, seriously it was so thick and didn't look good on him (he lost his cuteness of a being a beatle)

John kept the Sgt Pepper persona for longer

Paul should have kept a moustache for longer  

Honestly, apart from Tom Selleck and Burt Reynolds, I think George and Ringo are the only other guys I know of who genuinely look good with a mustache.  Paul NEVER looked good with facial hair.  I didn't mind John's mustache initially (when it was 'extended'), but when he reduced it just before the Sgt. Pepper album cover photo shoot, it lost something.  Ringo was the only one who looked good with a beard; John's and George's made them look like old men, Paul's came off as a baby-faced guy desperately trying to assert his manliness.

This will do nicely, thanks.

Here are, controversially, some things I don't like about the Beatles' records.

1. The fuzz-bass on Think For Yourself

2. The hammond organ on Mr Moonlight

3. Yoko on The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill

"So unkind" wouldn't work at all though. There's actually quite a good internal rhyming scheme in MSH, which McCartney mostly sustains throughout the song. "So" is to rhyme with "Oh-oh-oh-oh", "Maxwell stands alone", "Joan" and "tells them so". The odd line is "Wishing to avoid an unpleasant scene", which doesn't rhyme with anything.  

The rhymes (as you say) are internal. 'Avoid' rhymes with 'annoyed' in the previous line and 'testimonial' is used to rhyme with 'alone'.

The second verse (Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine) is the only verse that doesn't have an internal rhyme in the third line to rhyme with the end of the previous line - ('phone'). Instead McCartney uses an end-rhyme only ('Joan'). It's this verse that I consider to be the odd one out. Somehow though, it still works.

I wish The Beatles only did mono or stereo mixes for their albums as opposed to having 2 different mixes per album.
