Well, never mind then, my mistake. I thought we were talking about music.

The international Ringo fanbase are a puzzle. They're obsessed with the newer stuff despite it being a thousand times less interesting. I'm actually glad people don't post about MM or SS much because a lot of people probably don't really get them.

Anyway, I'll vote album version. It distills a lot of UK punk / new wave influences into a short and sweet pop hit, and it's a tighter recording than any of any of the lives. MM is zipping along by that point. The single ver. is pleasant, but much more like a lot of other J-pop/rock.

I chose the single version because it is so kawaiiiii (◡‿◡✿) uguuuuu.

Seriously though, I like both versions, but I prefer the single version because it works with the meaning behind the song which is important to me for corny/sentimental/personal reasons.

Album version, I like the extra edge the megaphone gives the song. In comparison the single version sounds a little too "Kawaii" for my taste, even if this is more in line with the lyrics.

I changed my mind. Ringohan version is the best.

Well, you could say the Fuji Rock version instead if you want the full-length version. Same arrangement, but with less distorted guitars and epic rain.
