Im not a huge beatles fan. I really only liked their earlier stuff when they played gigs to small crowds and did crazy things. They were actually funnier than most people think. John played one show with a toilet seat around his head.

I find it annoying that most people only listen to their later stuff and decide that they were really boring and how on earth they could be considered 'rock and roll'. I think some of their earlier pieces should be played more often. They are far more entertaining than the stuff they produced sitting around in a recording studio.

One thing that I really like about the Beatles is the hard work they put in. We watched a video of them in music and it says when they went to Hamburg (Europe's Hollywood) they played for 7 hours an evening for two months! It shows how hard working and dedicated they were to their music.

I like pretty much all of their songs but don't really love any of them. If I had to pick a favourite it would be "Please Please Me".

I agree to that their early stuff is really good up to above rubber soul then sort of deteriorated but they were still a great band the last 2 albums were pretty good though Abby Road and Let it Be.

I've seen early shows of theirs the were quite crazy i model my playing and guitar style after them sort of.

Well of course most influental, and successfull band of all time. What can I say?
They were great. The early stuff is great compared to modern pop rock standards. The latter half is what defined them though. Incredible stuff. Abbey Road is my all time favorite album.

The beatles are probably the best band out there. They played everything and had unmeasurable talent. Mostly because of the acid. But my favorite song by them is Maxwells Silver Hammer. Go listen to it if you've never heard it.

yes of course but some youd be suprised by some people i received a reply from a website about this topic and they had this to say

" Yes, we really do believe he's dead. John put in clues but panicked when people got closer to the truth than they thought they would. John had to make out it was a joke, and misinformation was spread by Russ Gibb who misrepresented a lot of the clues which made it look like it was a hoax.

There was a death sentence on anyone giving the game away. Why do you think John Lennon was shot in the end? It was an assassination. His final album "Double Fantasy" really means "Fantasy of a Double" but Yoko hijacked the album from its original intention, which was to expose the impersonator who John liked to call Faul meaning False Paul."

I've seen a few people say that they enjoy The Beatles earlier sound over their later sound, but to be quite honest, I find their early sound to be quite annoying.

Songs like Love Me Do, for instance, are to me, just trash.

Though I consider their "early" stuff only their first couple albums, anything included on and after A Hard Day's Night is awesome.

I felt like this was where they started to evolve more musically, and their talent and musical diversity was realized.

ridcullylives
08-05-2006, 01:27 AM
Love Me Do is a horrible song. I'm sure Paul would admit that. And there are some great covers on their first couple albums and some really good originals...it's just lacking the consistency that the stuff Hard Day's Night on would have.

Revolver is my favourite album. Modern Indie music owes so much to that album. By the way, I think John may have put a few hints in albums about Paul being dead - it seems like his sense of humour.

actually they are pretty funny, and not because they suck. help was hilarious, hard days night was pretty funny, and yellow submarine was pretty good, though not actually starring the real beatles.

what you are confusing with suckiness is probably zaniness (in the case of help anyways)

and for the record, monty python were influenced by them, and george harrison has actually appeared in some of their stuff (the rutles anybody?)

really? see i think let it be is one of the biggest effups of a solo ever. not that it's bad, and i certainly don't know what to put in its place, but i just think the solo section (any version of it) is what brings the song down a lot in my book. it's not surprising that we disagree though, i love their early stuff loads (including love me do, although clearly there are a number of far better songs).

hmm, for my favorite george solo, perhaps Nowhere Man. He did do the lead on that right? Although, to be fair, the best beatles solo is still taxman.

To marines rock, see if you can find an e-transcript of the Yellow Submarine script, then demand your mother read it and ask her to point out the drug references within it. There are none. The only thing that could be considered drug influenced in that movie are the animations, but that was art during the 60's. Also this movie is intended to be for children, the nonsensical plot can be credited to drugs, but it was not the intention to be some flick to get your kids to acid. Sit down and try to explain this to your mother and have a intellectual, rational conversation with her about. This film is a cultural experience and should be viewed as such. PM me for advice or tell me how it goes, I'm willing to help you out with this one brother.

I've been looking for a thread like this for a loonng time. I'm so glad I found some other people that like The Beatles. For any of the people here that want to learn the rhythm for all of the Beatles songs I have this great chord book that has every Beatles song recorded. The book also has some songs that they recorded before they were famous and unreleased ones (In Spite Of All the Danger, Not Guilty, What's the New Mary Jane), including George's Indian influenced songs (Within You Without You, Love You To). It's called the Beatles Complete Chord Songbook and it has the four of them sitting in a row on the cover. A must have if you're looking to play Beatles songs.

Is it just the chords or does it also have Georges solos? If so, do they have the Sitar solos in his songs? just curious

It's only chords because its used if you were to play guitar and sing at the same time or to play with a vocalist. They do have write down the chords played during the solo break, so you can figure out the solo or do what I do and improvise it.

EDIT:

That video was amazing! I believe that that version was the first take from The White Album? You can tell because there's an extra verse that wasn't included in the finished version. Was the song and video from Anthology? I've been wanting to get that for a long time, is it any good?

There is another Beatles chat around here, a little further down the page, that is a little more active. But anyway for the time being, try Yer Blues, the single version of Revolution, I Want You (She's So Heavy), and Helter Skelter.

I pretty much grew up listening to the beatles (I'm not old but that's all my dad used to listen too), but my dad only listened to their nicer, melodic songs. It wasn't until I got older that I discovered songs like Helter Skelter, I Want You, and Oh Darling. Those guys rocked, definitely one of if not the best bands of all time!!!

I am a huge Beatles fan, although I do have to admit I haven't seen one of their films. I own every album and have a favourite Beatle.

I have to say I prefer the later, more "rock" tracks, particularly Lennon's, that preference actually becoming a trend throughout all the albums.

The choice of my favourite album is easy: Abbey Road, nudging out The White Album purely because it was the first Beatles record I ever owned. But asking me what my favourite song is, or even my top ten song list, is a challenge. They simply have too many great songs to just pick out two or three. But right now, off the top of my head, I'm going to list five of my favourite Beatles songs:

Help!
We Can Work It Out
Revolution
Hey Jude
Something

It's definitely hard work trying to think about a song for long enough that you know it's definitely a favourite, but not too long as to think about the other great songs you like.

You should really see the films, Ezuma. They're amazing.

Especially Hard Day's Night ;)

What is really great about the early stuff is the energy caputured on the recordings, these were done basically off the floor, very few over dubs. I love the old Motown covers, they feel so good. "Love me Do", got them on the charts but not much else. Their 2nd single Please Please Me was original and fresh and so it went until they were done. If I only had one Beatle product it would be Abbey Road. It has it all.
