To each, their own i suppose.  ;)

You just watch what you say about the Beatles, young man... Hungary is not that far from Italy. :smth019


luckily finland is further away...  :-D

i never understood the "holiness" of the beatles. i had a music teacher in high school who stuffed beatles down ours throats all the time, made us sing 'michelle' and 'in my life' over and over again, every lesson, every year so i seem to recollect. if we watched something from tv we watched some beatles documentary. if we played some band stuff we had to play 'obladi oblada'... etc. etc.
dear god he just made me hate the beatles. (actually i wouldn't be surprised if he did made the whole class hate the beatles. :smth023)

but maybe i should actually thank him for it, because i can now dislike them without any regrets - i simply don't like most of their music, nor do i think it's really THAT amazing, composition-wise.
hugely overrated imo. maybe they achieved something as a group (well, of course they did - i'm not saying it's the worst group ever or anything). but especially some solo stuff of their former members... i mean things like that 'liverpool "oratorio"' by paul mccartney - dear lord, that's just plain embarrassing. :oops: it's just so poor. sorry but imo people should stick to they own field, onto something they know something about and not think they can do just about anything just because they happened to have been knighted or something. :roll:

sorry JB.. I cropped a few lines that had me rolling!! :smth043

I dislike "Sir" Paul.  ( with a vengeance) My favs are John ( god rest his soul. ) and George, as well as Ringo.. ( he may not be the best drummer but oh what a personality!!)
I really think that their producer had a lot to do with their musical success!

maybe we should have a new thread: Beatles

well, now I am going to put MY 2 cents worth in re the BEATLES...my older siblings loved them, and I was so happy to have their music around me when I was young...and yeah, so WHAT if some of their lyrics aren't full of soul-filled meaning...you know, when I hear their music, it takes me back to a much safer and happier world, where music didn't drive people to slit their throats or those of others... where I could play in the street without fear of being taken by a sexual deviate...where people actually SMILED at each other, and neighbours would hang over the fence for a chat..where people could travel overseas without the fear of being slain by terrorists...  the Beatles were excellent, for those of us who grew up with them... and we remember them with happiness... not just for their music, but for the world they, and we, were a part of..

I realize the discussion is over, but since I was one of the instigators I'd just like to wrap it up by saying that I agree with the fact that they've been sanctified and made into something bigger than they actually were -- I don't have a Beatles shrine in my house, but I love their music, that's all. (The solo stuff I don't like either, jb, with very few exceptions.)
So Steve, if you're still under the table, you can come out now (if scatcat agrees).
Now I have an urge to go put on Rubber Soul!
