Paul's grandfather A) because he's funnier, and B) everytime I think of Ringo's aunt,I think of the scene where John piles the spaghetti on her plate, and it makes me nauseous paul-mccartney

 

Pick between these 2 early tracks: From Me To You or I Feel Fine ?

I Feel Fine , no contest. Not fond of From Me To You , but IFF has a stellar riff and groovy Latinesque rhythm.

Side 1 or side 2 of A Hard Day's Night ?

Side 1 is by far superior, no question. It has AHDN ! I Should Have Known Better ! If I Fell ! I'm Happy Just To Dance With You ! And I Love Her ! Literally every song is a masterpiece!

Side 1 or Side 2 of Abbey Road ?

Rubber Soul . Besides containing my favourite song, I love all of them, something that can't be said for the White Album (Revolution 9 , Happiness Is A Warm Gun etc). That being said, John's output on Rubber Soul would be pretty hard to beat full stop!

 

The Abbey Road Medley or the entirety of the Beatles' 1967 output?

How those 2 songs are in the same parenthetical baffles me.

The Abbey Road Medley or the entirety of the Beatles' 1967 output?

Oh jeez okay 1967 means Sgt. Pepper AND Magical Mystery Tour !  But the medley is the medley!

This is painful, but I don't think I could physically live without the medley, so I'll go with that.  

Happiness Is A Warm Gun or Revolution 9 (because apparently these are comparable now?)?

That's a really tough question... I really don't like either but I guess I'll go for Happiness Is A Warm Gun - it's actually a song and it's shorter.

 

Hairstyles: 1964 Ringo or 1969 George?

1969 George, he looks rather regal that way. 

Sexy Exi's: Klauss or Astrid? (sorry Jurgen paul-mccartney)

I'll go for Astrid. She was hot, although i think Klaus is so cool though.

Bouncy synths in the latter are a delight to my ear, but the song itself is crap. "War Is Over" for me, thank you.  

Moog (rhymes with "vogue!"): "Maxwell" or "Here Comes The Sun "? (not comparing songs, just the synthesizer parts)

I would say Here Comes The Sun . Moog parts really fill in the rest of the song. Scrambled Eggs or That's a nice Hat?

Scrambled Eggs! It's iconic and also it has a lovely tune a-hard-days-night-george-10

Acoustic Paul Songs on Help : I've Just Seen A Face or Yesterday ?

Please Mister Postman . I always thought George's delivery on the latter was a bit shaky on both vocals and guitar, and I have the association of the former with one of the most iconic videos on the internet a-hard-days-night-john-6

Favourite Larry Williams cover from '65: Bad Boy or Dizzy Miss Lizzy

Hmm... I’d have to say Bad Boy ... it’s not quite as well known but I was listening to Bad Boy today and I think I enjoy it more than DML.

 

Paul rock and roll vocals: Lucille or Long Tall Sally ?

Spectacular Little Richard covers, both of them. I like the Lucille vocal for the way Paul shrieks out the title, and for George's whammy bar abuse, but LTS is faster and builds to a bigger climax. Hm...I'm gonna arbitrarily choose Lucille because I've heard it less, and because Paul messes up the "...built for speed" lyric. (Star-Club Sally is the definitive version anyways)

Birds! "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" or "And Your Bird Can Sing "?

EDIT: Just noticed I read the question wrong and evaluated the entire recordings, not just the vocal, sorry. So if anyone wants to give ThatWeirdBeatlesGirl a proper answer and skip mine, that's fine. apple01

Norwegian Wood . I just like the song better. I also like the fact that Dylan thought enough of it to record a similar sounding track on his album (4th time Around).

 

John songs from the White Album : Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey or Cry Baby Cry ?

Argh, that is a tough one. Cry Baby Cry is the definition of cool, and EBGSTHEMAMM (what an acronym!) is an awesome rocker that it's fun to go a bit crazy to. I think I'll go with the former, because the lyrics have a little more to dig into.

Sleepy John song: I'm Only Sleeping or I'm So Tired

I'm So Tired because I like how it is a bit more figurative in meaning.  I also really like the contrast between the beginning part and the line "I'd give you everything I got for a little peace of mind"

On that note

Angsty John songs: Help ! or Yer Blues ?

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

@The Hole Got Fixed, just wanted to salute your choice of She Said She Said on the last page, that is the correct answer john-lennon-salute_gifa-hard-days-night-george-10

I'd go with I'm Only Sleeping because I relate sooooooooo much a-hard-days-night-paul-10 but for Angsty John, I think Help ! wins by a sliver because the backing vocals are so cool. Really, they're hardly comparable in my mind, despite having similar lyrical themes.

Rockin' album closers: Twist And Shout or Money (That's What I Want)?
