Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey .

If you could only listen to side A or B of every Beatles album (side A/C or B/D for The BEATLES), what would you choose?

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

For me,apple01 sides beat apple02sides fairly consistently in the discography - twice in the case of the white lp. Plus, all of the soundtrack songs were on the A. So, while I'd miss things like the AR medley and TNK, all A sides (plus one C) is the way I'd go.

Traditional Parlophone label or rainbow-swirly Capitol label?

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!"

Rainbow swirly Capitol! ahdn_john_08_gif I wish the guys at Parlophone and pretty much all of the UK EMI labels of the time were just as funky with their designs, especially when things got psychedelic... a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

Dark Horse or Gone Troppo album cover artwork? 

"Duit On Mon Dei"

"Beatles For Sale " would be my pick, as it's cover image is more standout and original comparative to "Please Please Me ", or any of it's 1964 counterparts as well. Something about that distant look along with the fuzzy filter is pretty hipster-like, in a good way.

'My Lungs are Breaking': "Helter Skelter " or "Got To Get You Into My Life "

Helter Skelter . It's a perfect storm.

"The Beatles meet an iconic musician" - Elvis or Bob Dylan?

(Not comparing the musicians, but rather the stories of them meeting The Beatles) 

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.

Dylan. Regardless of what you think of marijuana, that meeting lead to a great direction in their music...a-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-george-10

John & Yoko or George on Dick Cavett?
