With the Beatles. It's longer and it has some really excellent cover songs like Devil In Her Heart and Money (That's What I Want).

Agreed!

Julian or Sean?  

Hm. I'm going to have to go with Sean because I've listened to more of his music and generally am more familiar with him. Plus he has great taste in clothes.

Singing: Yoko or Linda?

Probably Yoko. Linda has a very nice voice but I haven't really heard her on her own, she's always singing with Paul.

George's hair: 1964 or 1965?

I'd have to say 1965. I love the extra shagginess.

Hard to choose, but I think Ringo looks happier in this smiley: a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Penny Lane or Strawberry Fields Forever ?

And in the end

Strawberry Fields Forever . It was the first Beatles song I ever heard, and I've always liked darker, creepier songs over more upbeat ones.

Revolution or Revolution 1 ?

Isn't he a bit like you and me?

ERRGGGGHHHH I'm going to have to go with Revolution 1 , because it was my anthem when I was like eight and I have a bit of an sentimental attachment to it. (Otherwise I wouldn't be able to choose.)

She Loves You or I Want To Hold Your Hand ?

Both superb, groundbreaking songs/records/singles, but "She Loves You " has the more compelling lyric, so it wins (THIS TIME)

Paul's crap trumpet on "Northern Song" vs. John's crap saxophone mouthpiece on "Helter Skelter "?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

John on Helter Skelter , purely because I like the song more. 

The Sgt Pepper or White Album 50th Anniversary Remaster/ Reissue? This includes all the bonuses and whatnot. 

Helter Skelter or I Want You (She's So Heavy)

 

Feel free to answer the other if you like, but I realised I wanted to ask the latter question more

Helter Skelter . I'm widely known for not liking IWYSSH and HS is a much more reasonable length.

The Sgt Pepper or White Album 50th Anniversary Remaster/ Reissue? This includes all the bonuses and whatnot.

Something . I find it less corny than Here Comes The Sun . And the solo is really nice.

PID or not PID?

ahdn_paul_01Paul isn't dead. The whole thing is ridiculous. Anyway, who would want Paul to be dead? 

Help or AHDN (the movies and the albums)?

Movie: AHDN . A solid movie with wonderful camerawork and subtle humour. And the boys are looking amazingbeatlemaniacs_02_gif

Album: Help . It's my favourite in their early era, with beautiful melodies that feels like summer breeze. I love almost every song.

Rubber Soul or Revolver ?

Ohhhhh what a very impossible question... I'll go with Rubber Soul because it's perfection. It's like the quintessential Beatles album. I love it. (Also it was George's favorite 😉 )

Hey Bulldog or I Will ?

Hey Bulldog . I Will is a lovely song, but Hey Bulldog is one of their best rock songs and has aged really well, plus the solo is amazing. 

Yellow Submarine (song) or Octopus's Garden

YS is one of the great Beatleproductions, and OG is kinda second-hand in that regard. But it's a better song, adding wistfulness to the whimsy. So, Octopus it is.

A-side. Both songs are masterpieces, but I Want To Hold Your Hand is much more iconic and frankly is a better song.

Martha or Corky?

Martha. Not only is she adorable, but I remember seeing her in a bunch of music videos when I was younger and thinking "who's that dog?" 

Dig A Pony or Sun King ?

Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Dig A Pony - I think it's generally underrated, and a great song in the Apple Rooftop performance.

Considering the songs (rather than the films of the same names), A Hard Day's Night or Help ! ?

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

Help !, because it has such a great melody, and because I feel like it was one of their first songs with really creative lyrics.

Fixing A Hole or Getting Better ?
