Abbey Road - I think both Abbey Road and Let It Be are underrated albums, but Abbey Road has the edge for me with several great songs, skilful work from George Martin, and it is really the last album.

Blue Jay Way or Flying ?

Strawberry Fields Forever because IMO its music is more mystical and I love the inward vision and subtle emotion in the lyrics. And John's vocal is SUPERB.

We Can Work It Out or Day Tripper ?

OUCH a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I'm gonna go with Day Tripper because RIFF. It's very very very close though, WCWIO is such a great counterpoint of Len and Mac and I've loved it forever.

Magical Mystery Tour in its original EP form or Capitol's butchered Revolver ?

okay this was literally the EXACT same thought I had when I read that question, WORD FOR WORD.

and to answer your question I'd say MMT because Revolver has NO JOHN SONGS!!!

well that's not true but it certainly has less and the missing ones are essential to the album. So.

George's eyebrows or Paul's eyelashes?

Oh, man. I'd say George's eyebrows because 1) George and 2) eyebrows (both of which are things I adore independently of each other). It's close, though, Paul has some amazing flutterers.

(Revolver is just too good to accept in any form less than its unadulterated perfection. So. Wise choice, Fiddy.)

(Also, Day Tripper is very fun to play because, as I said, RIFF)

Yesterday or Tomorrow?

The almighty eyebrows, as seen in glorious wiggling action here:

Oh, and to Beatlebug's question, I'll go with Tomorrow. It never knows...

ALAS! I have only seen Time Bandits, so I shall have to choose it over Life Of Brian (which I need to watch, I know, I know).

Basslines: With A Little Help From My Friends or Rain ?

AAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHH I'm going to go with Something because I'm very very fond of the chord progression of that song. It's extremely close, though.

Drum fills: Something 'I don't know' section or Come Together main riff section?

"Something " in the way those elaborate bass parts move, they can feel a bit overthought. (George thought so) "Hey Bulldog " bass drives that song along; "Something " is more meditative. I'm choosing "Bulldog"'s bass as more necessary to the song, less like exquisite decoration. (plus, funkier!)

Norm or Shake?

Hm, interesting point to make that HB's bass drives the song more whereas Something meanders lazily around the song like ornate Baroque architectural adornment. Both marvellous and serve their respective songs in different ways that suit the songs, just depends on what mood you're in.

Something 's section is harder to play so I'll choose that. Underrated bit of drumming there.

Mr. Bloodvessel, simply because he's never done anything outright evil (although that beach scene just goes on and on and on...)

Shea Stadium or Hollywood Bowl?

Hollywood Bowl: Shea has been somewhat tainted for me since I learned that the 45th POTUS attented the show, allegedly. 

"Electronic Sound" or "Life With The Lions "?

Life With The Lions . I actually enjoy No Bed For Beatle John, and altogether (now) I would say that Life With The Lions is more interesting.

George's or Paul's outfits for the rooftop concert?

AHDN . I regret to say that he kept the MMT hat for a rather unfortunate amount of time (he still has it in the Mind Games music video!)
