As much fun as that ‘CBML’ scene is ‘AHDN ’, ‘TTR’ gets it from me. Ringo and his snow dog is the highlight but there is so much other stuff as well, plus I prefer ‘TTR’ as a song.

@meanmistermustard  Kind sir I think you've forgotten to add in your two Beatlethings.

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

The first image, if you will. I always believed George actually had a hidden third eye, and this picture is a prime example of that. Here we have George foreshadowing the rise of the slasher horror subgenre of movies that will dominate the movie market throughout the seventies and eighties. If you don't think George is some sort of mystic here, I don't know if you ever will.

I'm sure as you all know, I am merely joking

I choose "A Day In The Life ." "IATW" may be more trippy, but I like "ADITL" a bit better overall paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

George being extra salty in his songs:

"Think For Yourself " or "Taxman "

There are a few other salty George tunes, of course, but I just picked this two out of the mix for the game's sakea-hard-days-night-george-10

I'm not entirely sure if the Beatlethings above are indeed Beatlethings, or it's a really obscure inside joke that only the toughest of Beatle walnuts can understand (which I understand I am not at that level, yet), but carpets will be my choice. Carpets are by far superior to rugs as carpets are soft and fluffy whilst rugs are course and stiff, in order to get rid of feet dust, after all.

"Would you rather...": Accompany the once-Fab-Four in their post-Beatles Apple meetings or Go on a vacation with Allan Klein for two weeks

^Go on a vacation. At least it's a vacation and I could probably shake him off and enjoy myself. Also, he might not be so bad outside work.

(also have no idea what carpets and rugs have to do with the Beatles, but ok mccartney-shrug_01_gif)

Julia . I prefer it as a sleepytime lullaby over Good Night , anyway; the latter has too much going on to be as truly hypnotizing and relaxing as Julia is.

Songs about the sun: Good Day Sunshine or I'll Follow The Sun ? (you thought I was gonna say HCTS didn't you)

I'll Follow The Sun . I like the slight mellowness of it

My pick would be "I'm Only Sleeping ", but that would be mainly due to my bias in song rankings between the two.

Wow, leather-bound Elvis-inspired John or sideburns-clad Rubber Soul John aren't options? a-hard-days-night-john-3 Oh well, then 1967 hippie John all the way) john-lennon-salute_gifheart

(he is still quite a cutie then, I have to admit!)

Which Macca bass: Hofner violin or psychedelic Rickenbacker?

Rickenbacker. I just love how dry and thunky Ricks are. They cut right through the mix and compliment Paul's fluid melodic basslines so perfectly. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I hereby declare that lovelyritametermaid shall inquire discreetly
[convenient snip] leather-bound Elvis-inspired John or sideburns-clad Rubber Soul John [judicious trim]?
