IWY(SSH). I admit that it'll be great to sing "nanana" with a bunch of friends, but that guitar outro is stunning, like a storm rolling across my mind.

Edit: Oops, I'm late. Father McKenzie's question: Favourite Ringo vocal,I Wanna Be Your Man ,or Act Naturally ?

Oof, a double post. To answer @Father_Mckenzie 's question: I've let it be known that I'm not a fan of I Wanna Be Your Man , so Act Naturally it is. I'm not huge on Ringo's vocals but I think they suit the subject matter of the song quite well. 

I'll repeat SFF's question:

Macca ballads: And I Love Her or Here, There And Everywhere ?

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. 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 don't particularly like "And I Love Her " very much at all, as a song, aside from George's classical guitar lines and the overall moonlight-serenade atmosphere. "Here, There And Everywhere " benefits from two extra years of songwriting experience, and is my choice.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Playing field scene is funnier and fresher to me (SORRY WE HURT YA FIELD MISTAH) and works better in the context of the film, 'YAY we finally get to run about!'. Also doesn't seem like it would be as cold and wet.

Summer afternoon listening: side 1 or side 2 of Revolver ?

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Again, even though side one is my favorite, I'll have to go with side two because it's just more thematically appropriate for a summer's afternoon. Really, though, either would be lovely.

I Me Mine or Two Of Us ?

Sorry George... Two Of Us . I just love the relaxed driving-aimlessly-through-the-countryside theme.

I don't really like one better than the other, but I'm going to have to go with For You Blue simply because it's on Let It Be and I have nice memories of it. 

Band On The Run or Tug Of War ?

Band On The Run ... I'm not particularly familiar with Tug Of War . (either the album or the song)

Beatle boots or collarless suits?

Collarless suits, since I associate them with The Beatles more. 

Early Beatles album to put on at a party (there will be dancing): Please Please Me or With The Beatles

I'll go for Oh Yoko. I do really like that one.

Eleanor Rigby is a real masterpiece. The lyrics say so much with so few words, and the story they till still creeps me out. I love how stark and simple the music is, too. Just as revolutionary as Tomorrow Never Knows , in its own way. 

But... I'll go with Penny Lane because of the sheer amount of detail in its lyrics and music. There's so much to hear in there that I don't think I'll ever get tired of it.

Well matched. And as much as Ringo personally prizes "Rain " (that weirdass hi-hat fill!), I find "She Said" even more remarkable a performance, equal to "Rain " in unpredictability/eccentricity, but showier, and with bonus time-signature changes and LOTS of cymbal. (I approve!)  "She Said She Said " is Top 5 Beatles material for me ("Rain " maybe top 15) and Ringo's performance is the same. That's the one. 

Better use of the "Paperback Writer " riff: "Paperback Writer " or "Got To Get You Into My Life "? ahdn_ringo_09(ok they're not note-for-note identical)

^Huh, never noticed that before. I'll go with Paperback Writer because it's more driving of a song, I like the way it chugs along rather than bouncing Motownly -- I mean, I like that rhythm too, but in the context of the riff, I'll go with Paperback.

OH! Oh Yoko or Oh! Darling ?

Oh! Darling , mostly because I had a very bad experience involving Oh, Yoko! once, and haven't liked it ever since (which isn't really its fault, but sort of is). 

Beatles For Sale or A Hard Day's Night ?

Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Hard Day's Night. Every song was an original,whereas there were a few covers on Beatles For Sale , and well,in my opinion AHDN is just a better album.

 

Francie Schwartz or Maggie McGivern?
