The keyboards on Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite, The Word is a great song but the harmonium part's not as exciting.

Better solo?

Something or Octopus's Garden .

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

Ringo's tonsils, because it adds to the controversy of "Who Is the Fifth Beatle?" by adding Jimmie Nicol.

 

Who was more against a Beatles reunion? George or John?

I can't be sure, obv; but I like to believe that the Paul-John friendship bond was a deeper one than that between Paul and George - and possibly John respected Paul's musical gifts more than George's? Anyways, I'm guessing that George was much less enthused than John about a prospective reunion.

Honey! An entire "...Pie" or just "A Taste Of..."?

Honey Pie , definitely. It's such a sweet little song, and one of my very favourites, while A Taste Of Honey is... well, it's alright I guess. I don't dislike it but it's not one that I find myself going to very often.

All Those Years Ago or Here Today ?

It is difficult to choose but 'Here Today ', as it is just so heartfelt, so sad and Paul singing personally to John.

 

Original 'Double Fantasy ' or 'Double Fantasy Stripped Down'

'How Do You Sleep?' - Would be closer if it was the Anthology 'SaG' but the 'WaB' cut is so overproduced and battered by all that was thrown on it.

 

George Demo's - 'Circles' or 'Sour Milk Sea'?

"Sour Milk Sea" has a better beat and the opportunities for that Beatles' harmony would have made a great song.  Circles kind of plods along; it needed more work, and George did more work on it before he recorded it during his solo career.

 

Which instrumental:  Cry for a Shadow or Flying ?
