dose. we just mumble em out by accedent! i think Ringo would make the nicest freind. Me and Ringo would be laughing at things together! ive noticed Ringo sometimes laughs at things that arnt funny.well there funny to me and i laugh at things that arnt funny too.

I like George but he would be too quite calm and serious(because im relly hyper and funny) I would probly have a hard time having a conversation with him.

For me, I'd have to say quite honestly Paul and George. Paul is a family man and I think his values are really not too different from mine. Paul appears to be the kind of person who enjoys spontaneity and I also think he is an excellent conversationalist. I would really enjoy having a conversation with Paul. I also think Paul is natural; honest; loyal and a very nice person. He also has class and is brilliant and those are qualities/attributes that I really respect.

For many years I was painfully shy and when I was younger, I often had George "talk" for me. My impression of George is that he was a very intense person with a wonderful, satirical wit and I could really get into a having a heavy conversation with him. I would enjoy listening to what he wanted to talk about; learning about gardening from him and discussing a myriad of topics with him. I think George had a very strong core and was an honest person and someone I have the deepest respect for.

Paul would be my best friend, there's no doubt in my mind. However, since I've been in love with him since last January, it would probably be very hard at first to be normal around him! Paul is my favorite Beatle, and not just because I like his songs the best, nor because he was... visually appealing [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] but also because of his good values and strong character. He seems like he'd listen to me and help me through hard times and enjoy good times with me too. He's charming and funny and intelligent, and I think he's really sweet. Ah, life would be so much more fun if Paul even knew I existed...

The best friends for me personally would be Ringo and/or George.

Most of you seem to forget that the Beatles had a PR face, and a private face...no, I'm not pointing fingers...(lol)...

Anyway, I go with John. Enough said.

I think George for me, I see him as gentle, kind, and considerate(that would be a good friend), Ringo would have been my choice, had I not known about his violent side, guess the drugs messed him up, I wish I could say Paul, but there is too much of an attraction there and has been for so long, I would like to have been a best friend with him in another way.

George would be the greatest friend, I think. He is so funny and shares the same values and interests as I do. He could talk all day about things which interest him, and I could just listen and listen. He's a fantastic storyteller...and prone to 'acting out' skits which would put his buddies in stitches. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] He would be such amazing company. To me, he has the most intellect and 'balance'. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

All of them have different personalities, that all of us could relate to.

John- We are both libras, so in my mind, I know that we would get along great. However, I'm not thrilled of making fun of people, on the other hand I do rather have a sarcastic mouth. I could picture a good laugh and meaningful deep conversations between us.

Paul- According to Heather's book, Paul could talk to anyone about anything, so I could imagine just talking about every subject in the world with Paul.

George- I could feel a sense of George that if you don't stab him in the back, he won't stab you. You respect him, he'll respect you. I like that attitude.

Ringo- To tell the truth, I have no absolute clue on what Ringo and I would talk about, however I feel that if I'm down or something, Ringo's a kind of guy that will let you cry on his shoulder. Also someone who could gives safe and comfy hugs.

To narrow it all down, it's really hard to choose between all of them. However my pick crosses between John and Paul. George and Ringo would somewhat be "once a month" visitors (but not crampy or annoying, grouchy...they would be welcomed opposites)

That's a tuff one. Paul is nice, but moody, John is John, George may be good, but I think Ringo would be the best. Just a natural guy like he always was, played with all the Beatles after breakup and "has a sweet disposition...likes to enjoy himself".

I feel the same way. Not only would George be neat to talk to about gardening, he'd talk to me about spirituality, and lately I can not get enough of that. Another thing about George and Paul is, they would teach me about so many things in regards to life, music, and creativity. Those two I feel I relate to more than John and Ringo, not that their is anything wrong with them, for I think they are awesome as human beings too. It's just that when you relate to the person or persons, it's much easier to talk to them, and because of that, you end up becoming close friends with them.

In my opinion, I would say Ringo because, we both play drums, we both have a good heart for comedy, and were both the buddy-buddy type of person.

Great topic! This is very hard for me. I would honestly love to have any of them as friends. If I had to pick who would be the BEST, it would be very close between George and Ringo. George because I've heard so many of his friends say that he had a way about him of making you feel like you the were the most important person, like you were incredibly special. I think that is an amazing character quality! What a compliment to George!
Ringo would be great, because, well just look at him. He always seems so friendly and fun. So easy going, but honest too.
Now, I need to esteem Paul and John too. Paul would be good because he's my favorite Beatle! Just kidding. No, Paul would be good because he's incredibly cool and interesting. And he seems like he would be a good time. John would be a good friend because he was deep. I bet you could have an amazing conversation with him! And he would be freaking hilarious.

In truth, I would surrender my first born to be friends with any of these guys. Every time my friends and I watch footage, we always say how much fun they look like they would be, and how great it would be to hang out with them.
