WHAAAAAAUUUUUGGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHHHHH

Disc 1 has stronger songs in general, but disc 2 has ‘Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)’. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14 I guess I’ll go with Disc 1 because of ‘Run Of The Mill ‘, though.

Boss Man Paul or Boss Man John?

I’m not 100% sure what this question means, but one’s answered in a few days so I’ll give it a go.

I’d say Boss Man Paul because the 2 albums he’s credited with being the strongest influence on (Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper ) are my 2 favorite Beatles albums.

If this was supposed to mean something different then whoops.

My Thought Process: George on Rubber Soul .  Oh wait Paul on Revolver is good too.  What was the question again?

I guess Paul on Rubber Soul because his songs were consistently good whereas George on Revolver had a knock out, a really good song, an extremely forgettable one (I’ll leave it to the imagination which one’s whicha-hard-days-night-george-10).

How bout I switch it around.  George on Rubber Soul or Paul on Revolver ?

Paul on Revolver with no doubt. Man, he gave really great songs, Eleanor Rigby , Here, There And Everywhere etc. I have nothing against George on Rubber Soul , but he didn’t give the best works on that album. He was still growing as a songwriter.

John on A Hard Day’s Night or Paul on Sgt. Pepper ?

Aaaaarrrrrhgflghdfkdgsjdgsgsf what a terrible, terrible decision. I guess John on AHDN ? Because of AHDN and I Should Have Known Better and If I Fell and all that magnificence?

George on Please Please Me or Ringo on Abbey Road ?

Ringo on Abbey Road without a doubt. It’s a better album anyway, and Ringo’s drumming on it is utterly magnificent and some of his best work ever. Plus, Octopus’s Garden .

John on ‘Fame’ or David Gilmour on ‘No More Lonely Nights’?

John on Fame, for two reasons:

1. John

2. Fame

I rest my case.

Billy Preston or George Martin?

George Martin, since he was essential to pretty much every Beatles album and contributed loads to plenty of my favourite Beatles songs. 

The reference to Ob-La-Di on Savoy Truffle or the reference to Lucy in the Sky on I Am The Walrus

Savoy Truffle because I love when Beatles trax reference others on the same album, like the Pepper reprise or Pam/Mustard. Plus the lament is funny and heartfelt. (Exasperated George to Perfectionist Paul after rehearsing the song 75 times: “We all KNOW it!!) 

Female name: Molly or Prudence?

Sorry (and no offence to anybody named Prudence reading a-hard-days-night-ringo-14), but the name Prudence reminds me of prunes, so I think I’ll go with Molly. ahdn_paul_02

Victor Spinetti as the TV director or the mad scientist?

The mad scientist. His part is bigger and funnier and in my opinion he plays it better.

Algernon or Foot?

Algernon is more lovable, but the character doesn’t even really look like a scientist to me. (Besides, Roy Kinnear will always be Veruca Salt’s dad to me.) Foot, I say. Up up up! Up up!

Get Back : John’s guitar solo or Billy’s piano solo?

John’s solo because 1) John 2) It’s a pretty decent solojohn-lennon-salute_gif

The orchestra in I Am The Walrus or Something ?

I’ll go with Walrus because the orchestra is such a distinct part of the song, whereas with Something that part seems to fall to the background more for me.

I Want You, because it’s the first half of the song and you haven’t grown tired of it yet.

(now I know this question has three Beatlethings to choose from instead of two, but it’s quite essential:)

Paul, George, or John as a guitarist, based on the The End solos ONLY?

I think George just has the edge over Paul in this regard, with John’s playing also being stylish and appropriate for the part.

Jelly babies or ripe tomatoes?

Ýoung Fred. Old Fred’s style of speech makes me impatient.

Paul noodling on the organ in Help ! or on the piano in AHDN ?

Organ. Anyone who uses comic books instead of sheet music has won my respect.

George playing sitar or John playing harmonica?
