^ Nobody will. They were the first big stars, they couldn't even go to the studio without being mobbed. It got so bad they couldn't even play live anymore. They were the first and at some times were the industry scapegoats. They also made music videos 15 years before anyone would care about using them for their career.

Well, I haven't heard much Beatles, but I like the song I Am the Walrus and I'm looking for a few other songs (or albums but preferably songs for now) to listen to that are somewhat similar.

I also really enjoy John's solo work. Another reason I ought to listen to more of the Beatles I guess.

I love The Beatles. They're very talented, their music is a musician's dream, and they've written so many friggin hits! It's just like an undeniably awesome band. They're not nearly my favourite, but without them, most of my favourite bands wouldn't exist.

They are probably my favorite band. They are one of the bands that got me deeper into music when I was just a young boy. It's ironic that they are the only one of those first bands that still gets heavy rotation on my Ipod and in my Cd player. No matter how many times I turn to other bands and other styles of music, I almost always come back to the Beatles.

It is a shame. His songwriting and playing skills were so great. "All Things Must Pass" was such a great album.

Although, I think McCartney was probably the best musician out of all of them. He played the guitar and bass so well. Not only that, his voice is, in my opinion, one of the best in Rock.

While I was walking over to a friend's place today, and on the way I listened to Revolver for the first time in awhile. It just completely rekindled my love for The Beatles. It's all I've been listening to all day.

^I might be up for that.

Even though they all hated each other during this album..."Let it Be" is one of my fav's.

Songs such as Let it Be, Get Back, The Long and Winding Road (my fav ever), and I've Got a Feeling.

Great Stuff...

Sgt. Pepper's is amazing...and the White Album too

Revolver is, in my opinion, the greatest of all Beatles albums. Then Sgt Peppers, then Magical Mystery, and then a tie between Abbey Road and the White Album. It's hard to decide, but possible.


What's harder (no, impossible) is to rank your favourite Beatles songs


I mean, can anyone here honestly list their five favourite Beatles songs? I can't even list the top 20.

I probably couldn't even do a top 50. I mean honestly, choosing between Beatles tracks is like choosing between children.

Thumbs up

I really like the Beatles. My fav album by them is a tie between their fisrt album and the White album. The Beatles had a major impact on music and our culture in many ways. Without the Beatles our music would be totally different than it is today. The Beatle that had the biggest impact were John Lennon and and Paul McCartney. Actually more so Lennon than McCarteny. The Lennon/McCartney team helped revolutionize the way we write music today. Lennon/McCartney can absolutly be conciderd one of the best song writing teams ever. The Beatles overrated, I think not. Were would be today without the music of the Beatles.
I hope you have a nice day and ROCK ON!!!

Well, my favourite Beatles' song is Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, it was the first song I can ever remember liking as a kid, and the images it puts in my mind are as vivid and powerful as they ever were. Plus, going up to hardcore Beatles fans and saying "Lucy in the Sky is about LSD, y'know," is even more fun than naked ping-pong.

I love the Beatles, from their first hits through the band members' solo carrers. Abbey Road is my all time favorite album, you just can't beat it.

Paul McCartney inspired me to play bass when I was 12 when I heard the basslines in Something and I Wanna Hold Your Hand

Yeah, choosing between children is hard, yet they choose between you and your wife pretty fast after a divorce.

My all time favourite track at the moment is definately "I Am the Walrus".

Wait for me to contradict that in a matter of days.
