this is good
you got the ball
get on with it, progress us
okay i'm joking
Wow, read through the thread and still don't know what it is its trying to establish. Is it we cant progress (musically) without letting the Beatles fall from the status they have earned? Confused?? (*.*)...?
Although I think the Beatles are overrated, that is a good album. I have a slight preference for Rubber Soul, because of "Drive my car" and "In my life."
beyond the beatles? yes
why do they still hold sway
i loved rock around the clock
yet somehow the hands got stuck
it's not what have they done lately, it's what have we done lately
sure, i live in the past, yet why would i leave?
Think of it as one man's existential struggle. Either that or he's drinking again.
Do you think the Beatles would have chose to play MIM Fenders? I mean, if they existed then.
No, they would have played MIC Squiers.
moi? i love sartrism
i dunno, ask a squierious question, get the MIC taken out of you
The great thing about this post is no ones right or wrong, just a matter of personal taste. I base my opinion on the fact I was alot more excited about Led Zepllin at the time than I was about any other band. Now days I listen to equal amounts of both Zep & the Beatles. Know what, they both sound as good today as then. Love them both.
I go through binges with the Beatles. I'll focus on other things for 10 years, then will get on a Beatles kick again for a year or two. Their quality and originality always astounds me. The stuff that I don't like, I have always not liked (White Album, etc.). In Geoff Emerick's book, he discusses how important it was to them that each song be recorded differently. I have heard in other ways that the issue of quality was always present, and they wouldn't settle for anything. One way that I have come to appreciate was their public personas. In interviews, they always had thoughtful, and often very funny, things to say. So many artists since then come across like dullard half-drunks, saying F this, F that, etc.
We have moved on since the Beatles. Haven't we? I see these The Beatles weren't the best" sentiments in this forum all the time.... Never anyone else, Hmmm. And if we feel we have struggle to climb out of some kind of shadow they still cast almost 50 years since the last note they played together, then, maybe they are the best.....
They were good based on promotion and album sales....
Based on promotion and album sales the BeeGee's were good too...
The world turns on promotion and album sales.... for some.
But not for everyone.
That said... I think later Beatles from Sgt Pepper onward sounds dated and the reality was that that later material just wasn't everyone's cup of tea when it was released.
The early dance stuff still sounds tight and gets people up and dancin'
"Kill your Television" Godfodder
Is the OP ok? I mean, mentally, substance use...etc.?
