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 ?

I prefer Flying , but a lot of that is admittedly its context within Magical Mystery Tour (the Capitol album)

I think it makes for a nice interlude, but not really something I’d listen to on its own much

Who had the better Simpsons guest appearance: Paul (Lisa the Vegetarian) or George (Homer’s Barbershop Quartet)?

Great question, and wildy relevant to two of my favourite topics!

Although I prefer the whole episode of Homer’s Barbershop Quartet because it is crammed full of Beatles references, in terms of the cameo itself, I have to hand it to Paul and Linda. I mean, they were pioneers in making vegetarianism cool.

 

Ringo’s plotline / character arc in A Hard Day’s Night or Help ?

A Hard Day’s Night , because it has aged better.  Getting painted red isn’t as funny now as it was in the 1960s.

 

Which song to you prefer when it comes to Paul’s problems with Jane Asher, I’m Looking Through You , or You Won’t See Me ?

Take 1 of the former. You get a great feel of the anger felt but it’s so much fun, take 4 sounds more mournful. 

Cries of despair – ‘I’m A Loser’ or ‘Help !’?

I’m A Loser . Help sounds more like a standard pop song to me whilst I’m A Loser really pulls my heartstrings. John sounds more desperate in it.

 

Yellow Submarine or Winedark Open Sea?

I really like ‘WOS’, despite it getting a lot of heat, but since I was a kid I’ve loved John’s echoing vocal at the end of ‘YS’, especially how he sings “in our yellow”, the effect on ‘yellow’ is magnificent.

 

Songs donated by John and Paul on the forgotten ‘Ringo’s Rotogravure’

Cookin’ (In the Kitchen of Love)‘ or ‘Pure Gold

Beaucoups, I’ve never really connected with standards and that, and me being Albertan means I have a bit of a soft spot for (certain) country

probably a really obvious one that’s already been done, but

George songs from Yellow Submarine : Only A Northern Song or It’s All Too Much ?
