OOOOhf that's a hard one, but I'll have to say the blue tie shirt, because it has a sense of humour to it that wins me over, even though the velvet jacket is objectively fabulous.

'Ouch!' or 'Hold My Hand'?

AH! Both so good! I'm going to have to go with 'Hold My Hand' because it combines more Beatles songs than Ouch does ahdn_george_06

Leggy Mountbatten or Brian Epstein? (warning: this question has a right and wrong answer)

Cynthia. I have a thing for blondes brian-epstein and she’s such a talented and graceful lady, a loving mother. I love and respect Olivia too, butahdn_paul_01

John’s glasses in the Imagine video or in Live In New York City ?

Oh man. That's a big one.  They're both so amazing.  I think I'd go with Too Many People because I've known it longer and obsessed over it just a little harder.

Scrambled eggs or attracts me like a cauliflower?

Attracts me like a cauliflower. I hear it in George's laconic drawl and it cracks me up every time. ahdn_ringo_09

Beside a mountain stream, sounds like my ideal habitat. I'd rather eat the cornflake. Preferably with a lot of other cornflakes and milk.

Apple Records or Banana Records?

Penny Lane . I love all the little details like the guy who recognises John as he's walking through Liverpool and follows him for a while. 

Favourite Beach Boys inspired Beatles track: Here There And Everywhere or Back In The USSR ?

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.

Here There And Everywhere by a long shot because it is just perfection on earth, although I'm not sure I consider it as directly Beach Boys -inspired as Back In The USSR .

Shakespeare bits in I Am The Walrus or seagulls in Tomorrow Never Knows ?

Shakespeare bits in IATW. I like how it was all linked to the PID bullshit because the bit that was played in the song was the death scene. Completely random thing that was made out to mean something else.

 

George songs: I'm Happy Just To Dance With You or Don't Bother Me ?

Hmm... I’d have to go with IHJTDWY just because every time I hear it I think of John dancing in AHDN .

A hard one. 'Red Rose Speedway ' for 'Little Lamb Dragonfly' (I prefer the 'One Hand Clapping' version of 'Maybe I'm Amazed ' over the album cut) but that album is filled with mediocre filler ('When The Night', 'Get On The Right Thing', 'Single Pigeon'), pointless crap ('Big Barn Bed', 'One More Kiss') and unlistenable unbearable shit ('Loup' and the abomination that is the medley').

Can I burn an E.P. with only the tracks that stand up to repeat listenings?

 

John tributes: 'Here Today ' or 'All Those Years Ago'?

Here Today . It’s more personal than All Those Years Ago, even though the little “I always looked up to you” in All Those Years Ago is really touching.

Boys or I Wanna Be Your Man ?
