Top Ten Questions About the Beatles to Ask People

The Top Ten

1 Who is your favorite Beatle?

That's tough...it was Ringo at first because I knew of him before I listened to the Beatles. But then it was Paul. So it's tied between all four- after all, the four of them worked together to create the great band, it was a group effort where everyone brought something wonderful and different to the table. - BeatlesMW

Mr. Lennon for sure. He wrote the better songs. He was a better singer. He was a peace activist. He was not selfish like Paul. On A Hard Day's Night, Paul sings the verse on the title track and gets the more memorable harmony on If I Fell, though they are both John's compositions. And Paul sings alone on his three songs from that album, And I Love Her, Can't Buy Me Love and Things We a Said Today; all of them could have used harmonies. - backflip

Why is George so underrated? He has always been my favorite. And I love While My Guitar Gently Weeps. I feel like George should be more appreciated

George definitely should be more appreciated! He's so underrated - kaitlynrad11

Best Singer: Paul / John (Paul was more polished, John was more raw - hard for me to separate them)
Best Writer: John (Best lyricist of all time)
Best Musician: Paul (Could play everything and anything)
Best Wit: John (They were all witty, but everyone would agree that John was the quickest) - lachiemc

2 Favorite Beatles Song?

And Your Bird Can Sing. I remember it from my days of first listening to the Beatles, on a trip to New York. I can still see where I was when I first heard it, what I was doing (staring out the schoolbus window on a field trip to NYC), and it's one of those rare songs that sticks with you and makes you go "wow," - BeatlesMW

Michelle - it's actually quite underrated, very beautiful song - kaitlynrad11

SORRY Abbey Road is my favorite album. Favorite song is I Want to Hold Your Hand

Hey Jude or Helter Skelter - Lucretia

3 Favorite Beatles Album?

It's pretty much a tie between Revolver and Abbey Road. - PetSounds

Abby Road: it is the reason I like the Beatles, it is the reason I like listening to albums, and it is the reason I love music.

Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. But I love most of their albums. - IronSabbathPriest

It used to change a lot, but now it is Help! Hands down. - BeatlesMW

4 Worst Beatles Song?

Wild Honey Pie. And I find Hello Goodbye to be one of the best! It's catchy and upbeat! - MontyPython

"Yellow Submarine", "Hello Goodbye", and "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" are a few I can't stand. - PetSounds

May be the first time I have to strenuously disagree with you my friend, while still respecting and defending your right to honest opinion - Billyv

One word and one number that strike fear into people's hearts: Revolution 9.0 - IronSabbathPriest

But such a creative and edgy work. Masterful in its own right though not meant for the broad appeal of many of their other works. They didn't create each piece to appease everyone nor should they have - Billyv

I really don't like Revolution 9. - BeatlesMW

5 Worst Beatles Album?

I wouldn't cal any Beatles album bad, but With the Beatles doesn't have a lot of their own content on it (being the second made) so maybe that one? Still love it, though. - BeatlesMW

Is that even a thing? - Pony

No Beatles album is terrible or bad in any way, but the weakest one would definitely be Beatles For Sale.

The songs are great, yes, but kind of bland as well. The ones that stood out were "Mr. Moonlight" (My favorite, but everyone else's hated for some strange reason.) and "I'll Follow the Sun". - MontyPython

Yellow submarine: only 4 songs were new on that album

6 Beatle with the Best Solo Career?

John! Not even close! Imagine, Mind Games, Happy Xmas, All of plastic Ono! Paul just had a couple hits like Maybe I'm amazed and Uncle Albert. George had nothing after the All Things Must Pass album.

Wrong with most of what you said... John's was great early on with Plastic Ono and Imagine, Paul has RAM and Band On The Run, Whilst George had All Things Must Pass... - lachiemc

McCartney for the privilege of longevity. George and John for brilliance. Ringo for having Fun and esp forming and fronting his All-Starr Band(s). Now, if we are really talking "solo" careers as being not as the frontman for other on-going bands, it is George Harrison without a doubt - Billyv

George all the way! I've got my mind set on you, do do do do.. - MontyPython

Paul went on to make a lot of great songs and albums and even collaborations. So did George. But every Beatle had at least a few good solo songs. - BeatlesMW

8 Do you think Ob-La- Di, Ob-La-Da is a good song?

I love Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-the. I play it on the piano and it is really fun. But I don't blame people for hating it (even though I said something completely different when I commented on the Beatles Worst Song list). I do blame people for hating Maxwell's Silver Hammer. That song is spectacular.

This is a great song! What's with all the hate? - IronSabbathPriest

Yes! Such a happy song, I can see them having a great time in the recording studio when I listen to it. - BeatlesMW

It's okay. - BeatlesFan1964

9 Do you wish John Lennon and George Harrison were still alive?

Yes cause the Beatles might've gotten back together, Paul won't be rapping with Kayne west, and Justin beiber would get booed of stage, yea MAINSTREAM POP SUCKS PEOPLE GET IT THROUGH YOUR EMPTY SKULLS!

Totally. I miss them so much! They would've helped music and the world today. - MontyPython

Imagine if George and John were still alive! Imagine if the Beatles got back for a show or for many albums! This is clearly a dream!

What a crazy question! Yes, yes..a million times.. YES!

10 Beatles Album with the Best Cover?

That's tough. Definitely the earlier ones, like Please Please Me, where they were all young and fresh-faced and had minimal problems with each other. I feel like towards the end some aspects of their career were slightly tainted. So maybe A Hard Days Night, because you can see their personalities and they're amazing. Revolver is also really beautiful and artistic. - BeatlesMW

Tough one.

My favorites:
A Hard Days Night - Really shows lots of personality.
Revolver - Has a mysterious feel to it.
Beatles For Sale - Seems simple, cute, and nice.
Sgt. Peppers - Really colorful and interesting.
Abbey Road - Classic and nostalgic.
Magical Mystery Tour - Really creative and lacks dull imagination.
Help! - Has a nice, fun tone to it. Really grabs you and makes you pay attention.

Overall, all of the album covers are great. - MontyPython

I'm not sure...I really liked Abbey road.

Revolver and Sgt. Pepper. - BeatlesFan1964

13 Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, or Revolution 9?

Some people think Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-the is stupid and some people (such as myself) think is a good and very fun song. But whoever heard of someone enjoying Revolution 9?

Revolution 9 sucks people on la di was fun

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-the, by far. - BeatlesMW

Ob-la-di, ob-la-the

15 How many Beatles are alive?

3 ( Including Pete Best). - Pony

Two at the moment. Wish it was four, though. - BeatlesMW

2, Paul and Ringo

16 Which Beatles Song do you think has the best lyrics?

I'm uncertain, but I think While My Guitar deserves more credit for its lyrics. - PositronWildhawk

Strawberry Fields Forever, Girl, Eleanor Rigby, Across The Universe, In My Life to name a few. - lachiemc

The Fool on the Hill. It used to really speak to me when I first heard it, listening to the song was kind of magical. - BeatlesMW

Strawberry flieds forever. lennon uses psyedilia to describe his inner childhood - RecklessGreed

17 Who of the Beatles members would you want to marry?

I'm not the one for dating and I don't really have feelings for any of the Beatles, but...

Ringo would seem like a funny partner who'd cheer you up. A slight problem would be that he'd be a bit careless at times.

George would be there to comfort you when in doubt. But a small problem is, he's always so quiet and he never manages to save any leftovers for you.

Paul would be the one who'd always talk on and on about how beautiful and amazing you are. Careful! He's still flirty towards others.

John would be the caring one who'd always shower you affection, and he'd been the one to defend you in certain situations. He'd might show a little bit of jealousy though.


If I had to choose, it would be George. Classic loving, understandable Harrison. - MontyPython

Either Paul or Ringo. George is quiet and kind of reserved, and John doesn't have a great track record with his romantic endeavors. Then again, Paul wants lots of kids, and I don't. So Ringo, my cute, sweet partner. - BeatlesMW

Um, what kind of question is this? - PinkFloyd87

None I'm 12 plus just because they're good musicians and good people doesn't mean I want to marry any of them

18 Is Revolution 9 really that bad?

I really like the idea of making something that chaotic, and John would have had a classic if he had used more musical chaos instead of creepy noise.

Think of it more as expanding one's horizons. - PositronWildhawk

Yes. It's not the good strange that other Beatles songs are, and I don't even know if I'd really call it a song. - BeatlesMW

No - BeatlesFan1964

19 Most Psychedelic Beatles Song?

I am the eggman, WOO, they are the eggmen, I AM THE WALRUS! GOO GOO GACHOO! - MontyPython

Blue Jay Way, I am the Walrus, Within You, Without You, or Tomorrow Never Knows. - BeatlesFan1964

Any of George's psychedelic sitar songs. They were crazy, but they're charming. - BeatlesMW

Don't know

20 Did you know Stuart Sutcliffe was in the band?

Yeah, the original bassist. I'll take Paul on bass over him, no offense, Stu. - BeatlesMW

Is he that guy that replaced Ringo on one song, or am I making things up?

No. He was the bass player when they began as a 5 member group but he was more interested in painting and Paul was a much better bassist. See the movie Back Beat for an enjoyable encapsulation of that time - Billyv

With a name like "BeatlesFan1964" what do you think? - BeatlesFan1964

no
