Can't stand them. They began the "pop craze"... Ever since then young girls chase a band around like crazy for a month, then that band becomes old and the next "big thing on the scene" replaces them for the girls to chase. Fucking annoying.
how could you not like the Beatles? Most of their stuff still sounds fresh today. I only listen to them every now and then but their stuff is timeless. So many great songs. It's hard to know where to start really.
I don't like the Beatles because all of their songs sound the same to me. Fans think they're all different and "fresh" as you said, but its all "I love you and oyu love me" or "Why don't you love me I love you" or of course the timeless, "You love me but I can't love you".
I don't have time to listen to that. I listen to music that people pour their hearts out into.
I'm kinda iffy on the Beatles. Their early stuff is too wishy washy for my tastes. I like their more abstract stuff, from the late 60s. I guess their stuff from that time can't help but be a little abstract, due to the massive amounts of acid they were on.
A little bit.. at least there not like the stones, still lingering on for no reason! I mean jagger looks like a freakin aids patient on stage, I don't get it?
The stones had some cool music up till the late 70's but now there fucking embarrising!
I love the Beatles, especially when they hit their stride. Musically, I think they were brilliant and lyrically they have some shit that is real poetry. I even like a lot of their solo shit, Wings and Lennon's stuff in particular. John and George were my favorite Beatles and Penny Lane is my favorite Beatles' song. Oh, and I like long walks on the beach and getting drunk with my puppies next to a warm fire.
Well done Jugg, you hit all cylinder as I knew you would. As far as "Black Bird", I thought Paul denied all overt social statement in the song. It can obviously be seen in the social context Manson mentions, and I agree that it's almost comical not to look at it that way. I remember looking into this question years ago, but I don't trust my memory as to Paul's (or the others') public take on this song in particular. You're acumen is obviously sharp in this area, what can you tell me.
