Based on those photos, and the fact that I just prefer the particular frame model, I choose Paul. His make him look like what he is: a pop/rock pinup star; John suggests a harried junior accountant.

Fuzz bass! "Think 4 Yourself" or "Mean Mr. M"?

Think For Yourself ! I just adore those quintessentially swinging Sixties sounding songs from Rubber Soul (The Word , Wait ...)

 

Which solo album do you prefer:

George's All Things Must Pass , or John's John Lennon /Plastic Ono Band?

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

of days

All Things Must Pass . As much as I love John Lennon /Plastic Ono Band, because of how emotionally heavy it is I've really got to be in the mood to listen to it (and that isn't often). Not only that, but I simply enjoy the songs on ATMP more.

Which would you have rather seen written: a companion song to Mean Mr Mustard about a character named after relish, or after ketchup?

As far as condiments are concerned, I've definitely expressed my x-treme anti-ketchup opinions on the Forum in the past; and I find relish equally disgusting - can't abide that sweetness, gahh! More songs about delicious, versatile, wonderful Mustard and the extended clan of Mustard seedlings, pleeze!

(EDIT: Sorry, dunno how I misread the options - I wrongly thought I was to choose between a sequel-song about Mustard or a new one about either ketchup OR relish. My opinions about the substantial superiority of mustard to those other two unworthy sugary condiments remains, however.)

OK: Which is the better, more appropriate title for the whole January 1969 album/film/concept, "Let It Be " or "Get Back "?

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Let It Be . It could have been such an amazing finish had they successfully completed their live project. Luckily they gave us Abbey Road to compensate, and Let It Be is great too. On that note

Let It Be vs. 

Let It Be Naked

I probably listen to 'Naked' more now as it has 'Don't Let me Down' on it and I prefer the order of the songs. I do miss the little snippets though and say them to myself before or after the songs!

But 'Let It Be ... Naked'

Which do you prefer, Wings or Traveling Wilburys

Travelling Wilburys

Wings had one talent, TW had five. However, maybe if they went through as many albums and line up changes as Wings, it might be a closer call.

 

1970s Ringo albums or Ringo movies?

I only really 3 Ringo albums well, and like them and don't know any of his films, so ...

Ringo albums!

 

The John part in 'A Day In The Life ' or the Paul part in 'A Day In The Life '?

Just like the old one, only this time it's 100% Beatle! Same format: A Beatlechoice is offered (Dhani or Zak, Eleanor Rigby or Let It Be , etc) , and whoever answers first, and explains their choice, gets to offer the next choice. Oh, and answers of more than two words are encouraged! blue-meanie

Paul's part. Because Paul's part is all parts. And via the mathematical equations 'All > Some', and 'Good-er > Good', we understand that all parts is good-er than some parts. 

Side note: I apologize for my horrible grammar.

 

Recordings for songs with their original lyrics: "Maharishi" vs "Hey Jules"

I think it has to be 'Hey Jules' as it more personal and friendly rather than an attack! I think 'Sexy Sadie ' works better as it isn't obvious who the target in the song is ... though of course most fans know anyway! Pity John hadn't made 'How Do You Sleep?' more general, rather then an attack on Paul.

Ringo's role in 'A Hard Day's Night ' or his role in 'Help !'

I think John has said as much before, that it's a great song but people miss that.

Ringo's role in 'A Hard Day's Night ' or his role in 'Help !'

  

Great question. I'll actually say Help !, even though I prefer nearly everything else about A Hard Day's Night .

 

To carry on the How Do You Sleep reference - which Paul song is better, Yesterday or Another Day ?

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

of days

I think Yesterday is better. It's just the complete package of great words, great music, simple and inspiring.

 

Which Beatles cover of Chuck Berry is better:

Roll Over Beethoven or Rock And Roll Music ?

"Rock And Roll Music " would be my pick. I just think "Roll Over Beethoven " is just more lackluster compared to "Rock And Roll Music " overall, that's it.

Baked beans. Because they are baked and that' a good thing.

Lucy in the Sky or the Walrus?

Oh I think Lucy would much prefer being in the sky to being in the walrus.

(But genuinely Lucy In The Sky is my favourite, I heard Sgt Pepper first so it's nostalgic.)

 

Mean Mr Mustard or Polythene Pam ?

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

Mean Mr Mustard is just mean, and Polythene Pam is pretty cute. Sorry meanmrmustard. "Polythene Pam " all the way.
