^^^ They must be listening to the Beatles in order to hate them so much. Otherwise, just don't listen. It's like the old restaurant joke: "The food is terrible! And the portions are so small!" Big Grin Razz

I don't hate them, I just don't think that they were very good musicians.

Nursery rhymes are kinda cool and I like reading them, but they aren't Shakespeare nor Yeats nor even Tennyson.

Back when I was young, Beatles' music was great to fuck to. The girls loved it and it wasn't anywhere near complex enough to detract from them nice firm boobies and...etc. The B-minor Mass or Glenn Gould playing the Goldberg Variations would have been a problem.

If y'all want to spend your mature/golden years listening to that shit, well then go for it and God speed! Smile

Glad we got that straight. They broke up 51 years ago.

Don't matter. That new movie prompted me. The premise is "what would it be like if the Beetles never existed?" My answer is "better."

Then I guess we would have been without a lot of small insects and small German cars.

I'm not going to convince anybody who doesn't like them. I will say that the majority of folks Ive run into with that opinion really aren't that familiar with the depth of the catalog. I am a bigger fan of Harrison's songs than Lennon/McCartney's, and most folks couldn't name even one.

I don't think that they suck, I just used to find them mildly annoying. Not any more though, I have lost most of my hearing, so that stuff doesn't bother me. Wink

I was a teenager when "Meet the Beatles" was released. While they weren't my favorite back then (I liked the edginess of The Stones), it's like Jim stated so eloquently; you just had to be there. Credit to the Beatles, though; they and their music evolved with the times and young peoples attitudes. They remained relevant for many years. I rediscovered them in college.

to the OP I say...Dry wines, especially dry reds, are an acquired taste.


The Beatles were an epiphany to rock and roll in the early '60s. Yes, much of their early stuff was "pop rock", good for the era and fun. It could be called cutting edge even if influenced by their own musician "heroes".


One has to remember these KIDS were in their very early 20s when they burst onto the scene...not really an excuse for "kiddy pop"...BUT...


Please remember that at "roughly" 22 years of age, they wrote/composed songs like Yesterday, In My Life, For No One and Elenore Rigby. Very deep lyrics thought and music for their age.


Then came "Sargent Peppers"...


An album that literally turned the music industry on its ear. (Research it...read the comments from their contemporaries at the time)


The White Album, Abbey Road (supposed to be their last hurrah) and Let It Be all have their strong points.


OP (and others) whom have contributed negatively to this thread need to pay more attention to rock and roll history and the depth of SOME of the contributions this band made to that history.


JMHO

It was The Beatles that encouraged The Rolling Stones to write their own songs. Prior to that, they just played covers. Credit to the Beatles, indeed. Smile

"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" blew the doors--and windows-- and wheels-- off rock 'n roll. There had never been an album remotely like it. But many would follow.
