    I will concede that Beatles For Sale is overlooked, but nothing they did was "unnoticed" imo.

    Except the Yellow Submarine soundtrack.. which was..

    Use to listen to a few of their tracks like She loves you and In my life now and then, then a few months back 'Help!' was on the radio and suddenly i've become obsessed. Like one of the few bands I like to just sit there and listen to them for hours on end. The history and meaning behind some of their songs are so interesting too.
    It'd be too difficult to create a top ten list:( but there seems to be a Beatle's song for every mood.
    Not to mention their films too XD

    Can't stress how good this album is.

    Well worth a hear, and probably the best of his later years.

    Loved this movie!! I actually started to cry of some kind of emotional joy when they began singing You've got to hide your love away. :'D

    I just really can't get into the majority of Pauls solo stuff. I wish I could as I love him as a Beatle.

    this is probably an irrational hatred for his character and weirdness.

    Most people think he made the most catchiest, easiest to listen to music after The Beatles out of all of them.

    But in all truth, they are fairly indulgent and kind of give off a visual idea of what he's about. Where as the others merely wanted to express their ideals, skills or just wanted to show a tune they had.

    Paul's solo work reminds me kind of like indie stuff today. I'm generalizing of course but it's really interesting to see that style translate into the trendy indie styles today.

    The great thing about Paul's solo work is that his songs are deceitfully deep, just masked under the sing-songy nature of them.

    It's to cheer the modern pop crowd up that they're living in times where pop is meant to be the spirit of the times.

    It's too bad they're pretty poor.

    They should make a Ringo documentary, he's pretty understood in my opinion as most people just see him as "the drummer".

    Where was that at? I just saw Ringo in concert on the 3rd of July. I drove all the way from Oklahoma to Alabama just to see him. It was the closest he was coming to me. Totally worth it.

    So one of my dearest family friends passed away, and he was a HUGE Beatles fan. I mean, huge. He listened to the growing up and till the day he died, he was real hardcore.

    "Yoko broke the band up!" etc.

    Anyways, at his funeral they played In My Life before the pastor read the Gospel and it was so beautiful. I think pretty much everyone in the room was in tears. That song is just so fucking timeless .

    Nobody thinks this. I worry if anybody thinks this article is legit.

    Edited:

    I've seen the actual article. You can really see it there but it goes on to say how good One Direction are for selling out to Nintendo. It's a joke piece.

    Edited:

    Not sure what Beatles song I want at my funeral. Something great and sad. Like In my Life.

    Golden Slumbers.

    Edited:

    Anybody watched Yellow Submarine on any drugs or anything?

    Hope this hasn't been posted before.

    Hey Bulldog is my absolute favorite Beatles song, mostly because of the awesome bassline throughout the entire song. Imagine my overwhelming happiness when I came across this:


    Paul is seriously one of the best bass players I know.

    The Mono version of Rubber Soul in this collection is SUPERB. Finally, I've found the best sounding version of it.. It's not harsh and spread out like the crappy new remasters.

    At the very beginning he sounded like he was kinda choking up or sick or something. It started kinda messy but the whole performance was great.

    Well.. she has done a couple good/more radio friendly things.

    But as a whole, she does things I can't comprehend, it's like she's free spirited to the point where she's become some kind of beast.

    Pauls performance at the Olympics was kinda naff to be fair. His persistent touring is admirable but doing horrible things to his voice considering Tom Jones, Ben E King and Ringo sound almost the same as they did in the day. Paul performs without vocal warm ups or drinking anything, his band act like it's inspiring when it's killing his vocal cords slowly. In 2005 Paul sounded almost the same as 60's Paul, now he can barley project and the harmonies from the drummer sound better than he does. The sad part is it's going to kill him if he doesn't learn to take more than three days off touring at a time, how long has the On The Run tour even been going on? A year, and there was only a month between his last tour. I saw Paul in March and he was full of energy and wit and everything but his voice was frequently drowned out by the instruments. I hope to god he doesn't run himself into the dirt, I know Paul was always the fame hungry Beatle but people are seeing his appearances at EVERY massive world concert as less of an honour and more of a predictable obligation. He goes on about how The Beatles wouldn't get back together incase it tarnished the name, this relentlessness touring is killing his.

    I can't help but feel if John Lennon was alive it'd have been him on that stage doing Imagine as it fits the shows tone a lot more. Oh well. Arctic Monkeys did a very very good cover of Come Together, was very surprised at that.

    well Lennon wasn't a fan of performing live.

    His last ever performance was only because Elton John bet that their record would reach number 1.

    On the night, Lennon threw up right before the performance. It's kind of confusing that he hated them tbh since he seems like the loudest out of the lot.

    And seeing as he did some avant garde things with yoko on stage, you'd think a pop song would have been a walk in the park.

    Maybe the "crowd" atmosphere is what he hated.
