    I don't think Imagine is Lennon's greatest song.

    I think my favourite Lennon solo song is Watching The Wheels. I've been listening to Borrowed Time a lot today, having not really noticed it before. Great song.

    Also, just realised that one of the cool things about Harrison's God-focused songs is that they pretty much work as multi-faith gospel.

    I think Working Class Hero has the best lyrics of any Lennon song. My favourite is Give Peace a Chance though, so simple yet very motivating.

    Just listened to A Toot and a Snore in '74.
    I can safely say that Revolution #9 is more easily comprehensible.

    It's interesting to listen to them, the snippets of conversation, but they only get through one or two songs.

    Dude, they were all high..

    For 3 tracks it was Lennon complaining.

    The only musical good parts were parts in Lucille which was both Paul and John going crazy and Cupid which was only Stevie Wonder(with Lennon in the background) :3:

    Lennon's cocaine-fuelled rage at the microphones and headphones was funny at times - I laughed at "Will everyone that doesn't know Stand By Me put their hand up?".

    They were totally wrecked.

    I really connected with "I'm Only Sleeping" today.

    It definitely is my favourite Lennon song, now.

    Suddenly John avatar what with it being his 70th birthday weekend.

    The fist weekday after a Beatle's birthday is now a national holiday, if that day is already a holiday then that holiday get removed.

    I guarantee the originals will be superior to most of the remasters.

    :smug:

    Plastic Ono Band, Mind Games and maybe one other are the exceptions.

    Cloud Nine by George Harrison has one of the worst album covers in music history. The actual album itself is pretty good I've heard but man that is one bad album cover.

    That album cover would be terrible if it wasn't for the fact that that man is George Harrison.

    I've always thought it's so naff looking that it's awesome.

    Also as BrokenHobo said, George is on it.

    Edited:

    Every time I see it though, I notice that the guitar strap is only over his right shoulder, rather than over his neck. It bothers me so much, but George can get away with it.

    We're singing Beatles in Revue in my choir.

    It has gotten me into the Beatles, although I still don't like their music for the most part.

    Michelle
    Yesterday
    Let It Be
    Elenore Rigby
    All You Need Is Love
    Hey Jude
    Can't Buy Me Love
    Hard Days Night

    Those are the only songs of theirs I like.
    I like this songs more than the others, but I do like the entire collection of songs.

    Just got myself a copy of Concert for Bangladesh.

    Once I've finished, I'll give you the verdict on whether it is one of the greatest concerts of all time.

    Not so much "lady gaga"

    Perhaps, Radiohead or Arcade Fire of their time. :smug:

    I'm sorry, but the opinion to what is good or not has completely changed nowadays.

    This isn't an excuse, because I can't see the quantity of greatness in the 2000s. Too many lost geniuses, too many people propped up and giving people the illusion that they are better than what they are.

    Its pretty much a mess of culture :smug:

    Yoko Ono was Lady Gaga of their time.
