A.  I gotta start at the beginning.

McCartney or McCartney II

Here | There | Everywhere

The one and only Billy Shears (AKA Paul's Replacement)

2016:2016 Award 1

McCartney II . McCartney seems too home made and amateurish.

Nowhere Man or Nobody Told Me?

Turn off your stream, relax and float down mind

"Nowhere Man " would be my pick. Whilst "Nobody Told Me" has some good lyrics, I think "Nowhere Man " feels more personal in terms of both lyrics and music. Also, I prefer a complete song by it's original composer (I don't mean any harm towards Ono, who did a good job finishing the incomplete song).

Song to (painfully) remove from "Magical Mystery Tour ": "Strawberry Fields Forever " or "Penny Lane "

HAVE to keep strawberry fields.  If not there is no emotional grounding for an other wise very upbeat album.  Without this song it is almost a different album.apple01

Do you want to pick two Beatlethings for us to choose from, @IzzyMissLizzy ? 

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.
