Ticket To Ride because: 1) the song is one of my favorites 2) their irresistible cuteness clumsily skiing in the snow beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Favorite stage performance in A Hard Day’s Night: If I Fell or And I Love Her ?

I choose "Yoko", a wonderful final word in John's canon of recorded gob-iron performances, and his most Dylan-like arrangement.

Instrumental break: "In My Life " or "Girl"?

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

I love You Know My Name, but I have to go with I Am The Walrus , one of their best songs ever.

 

Abbey Road solo: George's guitar solo on Octopus's Garden or Ringos drum solo on The End ?

The Walrus was probably Ringo

Lucy. Cool bass and trippy marmalade-tinted imagery.

Brackets or y’know?

If I have to pick, I would go for brackets.

Battle of singles: "Paperback Writer " b/a "Rain " or "We Can Work It Out " b/a "Day Tripper "

I should've explained, i was referring to George Harrison 's guitars.

Rocky is his 1961 Sonic Blue Fender Stratocaster that him and John got in early 1965, later painted in mid 1967.

Lucy is his 1957 Cherry Red Gibson Les Paul that he got from Eric Clapton during the White Album sessions.

Anyways, Paperback Writer and Rain .

What US release do you prefer, Magical Mystery Tour or Hey Jude ?

Magical Mystery Tour , it counts as an album for me. The Hey Jude compilation is more a micro version of Past Masters .

 

Iconic cover art: Sgt Pepper vs Abbey Road .

The Walrus was probably Ringo

Sgt Pepper ,only because there's more to look at than on the AR cover.

 

Favourite track featuring sitar: Norwegian Wood or Love You To ?

Damn, that's hard. That's really, really, really hard. I love Norwegian Wood . I love Love You To . I'm going with Norwegian Wood , but barely.

 

Opener vs finale: I Saw Her Standing There or Twist And Shout ?

Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown). I admire George's tenacity and love for Indian-inspired music, but it doesn't move me.

 

I know the answer, but Norman Smith or Geoff Emerick?

I will have to go with "Twist And Shout ". Whilst I do like "I Saw Her Standing There ", in my opinion "Twist And Shout " has the better vocal and guitar performances. John's vocals still blows my mind on how high yet raw it sounds, unlike many male singers recently (a certain "Baby" is a good example).

Geoff Emerick would be my (rather obvious) pick. 

 

"Revolver " heavyweights: "Taxman " or "She Said She Said " ?

Interesting that you praise Twist & Shout for it's vocal performance. Technically, it's pretty shoddy (and Lennon hated it afterwards) but emotionally it's brilliant.

I'll go for Taxman . A great opening track to, I think, their greatest album.
