Best psychedelic refinish, Ricky or Rocky.

  

Rocky looks like a happy fun children's party; Ricky is more disturbing, with a minimal colour palette and those runes or characters or whatever. I think Ricky feels more psychedelic, so it wins. (But Eric beats 'em both!)

Congas in "Getting Better " or bongos* in "Lose That Girl"? 

(*needs more cowbell)

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!"

Bongos in Lose That Girl for sure. It's much more of an essential element to the song and also SUCHAGOODSONG.

John's granny glasses or John's hipster glasses?

Love one another.

John's hipster glasses. Summer of love, all day long (even if he wore them after it).

Song to (painfully remove) from Revolver : "She Said, She Said" or "I Want To Tell You "

Pretty new to this forum.

She Said She Said is one of my favorites and it's the most "Revolvery" song to me, so I would have to (painfully) say I Want To Tell You .

Best song to terrorize small children with: Maxwell's Silver Hammer or Revolution 9 ?

I would've called Rev 9 the more traumatizing a year ago, but that was before 50yearslate (? I think it was her) played it for her babysittees - actual small children -  who found it hilarious! So in this case, I'll defer to the opinion of actual kids, who evidently find Rev 9 funny rather than terrifying.

Arthur Alexander cover: "Soldier of Love" or "A Shot of Rhythm & Blues"?

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

Soldier of Love, most definitely. 

 

 

Most iconic album cover - Abbey Road or Sgt. Pepper ?

I’ve actually played them both songs, and they think Revolution 9 is good weird and Maxwell is bad weird (they’re wrong about maxwell but what can you do?)

Abbey Road is prooooobably more iconic? I see more people wearing Abbey Road shirts than Sgt Pepper shirts.

Covers by George on With The Beatles : Roll Over Beethoven or Devil In Her Heart ?

Love one another.

Devil In Her Heart . i love the slick guitar lines and the vocal harmonies.

Larry Williams covers: Bad Boy or Dizzy Miss Lizzy ?

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.

"Bad Boy ", with its fun lyric and those dramatic breakdowns. 

Half-speed keyboard: "In My Life " piano or "...Rich Man"'s clavioline?

"In My Life " would be my (personally speaking) quite obvious pick. The baroque-sounding piano solo during the middle of the song gives me a sense of sentimentality and acceptance. Also, I never really quite understood the praise surrounding "Baby You're A Rich Man ".

John Lennon Collaborations: Mick Jagger's "Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup)" or David Bowie's "Fame"

Fame - it's a better song, with a better artist.

 

McCartney collaborations - Ebony & Ivory or The Girl is Mine?

E&I is trite and cringeworthy; "Girl" is slight but charming. It wins. 

Same two collaborators: "What's That You're Doing" or "Say Say Say"?

My pick would be "Say Say Say". This is because (to me at least) "What You're Doing " is one of the less good Beatles songs on "Beatles For Sale ", in contrast with "Say Say Say" which I would say is one of Michael Jackson's most underrated songs (same can be said about McCartney's part as well). 

"Egypt Station" track: "Back In Brazil" or "Hunt You Down/Naked/C-Link"

Haha, well I was referring to "What's That You're Doing", continuing the Stevie -vs-MJ theme of the previous post:

New answer: I will pick "Say Say Say" over "What's That You're Doing", but only by a small margin.

"Egypt Station" track: "Back In Brazil" or "Hunt You Down/Naked/C-Link"

Back in Brazil. For some reason it reminds me of Paul's songs from Off The Ground .

The Beatles doing Chuck Berry or Berry himself on Roll Over Beethoven and Rock & Roll Music?

The Beatles.  They honestly made most of their covers better than the original.

 

Rubber Soul US or UK?

While they're both great albums, i'm going to go with UK because it has Nowhere Man on it.

Alternate version of A Hard Day's Night : Mexico (replaces Can't Buy Me Love and You Can't Do That with Long Tall Sally opening side B) or Columbia (replaces those tracks with Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand closing side B)?

The Mexican alternative version would be the pick for me. I'm sure no one on this forum would outweight "Komm Gib Deine Hand" over "Long Tall Sally ". However, if there is someone that feels this way, I am apologetic if I do offend you in someway (if I did). But for the most part, I think the majority choice is clear.

Song to (painfully) remove from "With The Beatles ": "Please Mister Postman " or "Money (That's What I Want)".

Tough call but i'm going to have to go with Money (That's What I Want). While i prefer it over Please Mister Postman , cutting the less preferred song would mean having a 6 track A-side and a 7 track B-side, which is bad since you typically want the A-side to be longer.

What side of Hey Jude (AKA The Beatles Again) do you prefer to listen to first, A or B?
