Look up Freddie Mercury's pre-Queen band Wreckage doing a 1968 cover of Rain. Its really good.

i'm not a huge fan of their early years. from revolver and on is my favorite

The studio years were where they really got interesting
Rubber Soul onwards I'd say.
Anyway, have any of you beatles geeks seen these , I find it abselutely fascinating, although it could be accused of 'sucking the fun out of music'.
#49
Same. Rubber Soul and beyond. I'm not too fond of the early stuff, though I don't hate it.

Yeah, and Alan Pollack's site. I've checked it out every once and a while.

Ultimately The Beatles are and will always be my favorite band. They were the first rock band I actively listened to.

I think a lot of people are like that. The Beatles are played throughout everyone's life even if they don't consider themselves a fan. Especially with the boomers all having had kids within the last 15 - 20 years the Beatles popularity has really boosted.

Nobody else in the history of music will ever do that. Seriously that's stunning thanks for the info.

Does last.fm have more younger listeners than older? (Old is like 35+)

Well, I guess I should tell my story. I discovered the Beatles about 3 years ago. The first song i heard was Let it Be, and for a long time I didn't really see them as anything special. Then my friend was like "dude, the Beatles are awesome", so I started to listen to more and more. Of course, I heard the more general Beatles songs first: Hey Jude, Strawberry Fields etc. But then I started to delve deeper, and discovered Revolver, with songs such as "I'm only Sleeping", "Taxman".....ah, it was heaven. Since then, they've been my favourite band. No on will surpass them


And through all of this, my mom always bitched at me. She grew up in the Soviet Union, and there was this guy in their apartment complex that always listened to the Beatles......she hated it. She still hates it. Every time I pop in a CD into her car she tells me to "turn off that damned old-person's music"..............um yeah


Maybe she'll see the light someday.

I'm not entirely sure but if you look at the top beatles listeners accounts there all around 20.

The person who has listened to it most this week is 20, 2nd most: 17, 3rd: 28

not sure how much of an indication that is but I'd say last FM is mainly young people anyway, so ye preety damn amzing when you think about it.
#59
Hands down greatest band EVER!!! and if anyone disagrees they can take it up with me!


my favorite album is Sgt. Pepper

I think they have more older listeners. Well today's youth may have heard about them but don't have interest to get more deeper into them. If I only look at my class nobody realy cares. But there are still older people who were young when they were popular, like my father, who is also a fan, I believe there are more like him.
#62
Yeah, I reckon a lot of people don't give them a chance because of their more manufactured 'cheesy pop' early music. People don't realise that they became a very origonal rock band later on.

As a side note, I finally got round to buying the white album today, I'm listening to the first half as i type.
#63
Their earlier work didn't realy fascinated me either, but later on I didn't even have to know the song to know I am going to love it in some way. It's great they stop touring and made all that great stuff. White album is great, while my guitar gently weeps, yer blues, happiness is a warm gun and cry baby cry are my favorites.
#64
^ Their early work suited the times. Had they not done that they wouldn't have even left Liverpool.

That's true, I'm just saying they might not make Revolver, Sgt. Pepper,… if they wouldn't decide to stop with tours.

Agreed, but I'd say it's the more experimental stuff that left the lasting impact on music.

Revolver drops the bomb baby, its right at that interval between their early poppish stuff and the Psychadelia era, Eleanor Rigby, Yellow Submarine, Within You Without You, Doc Robert and Tommorow Never Knows < Best Beatles tune (IMO) plus it has the awsomest cover, theres a freakin monkey comin outa Paul's ear!!

Yuh, same here. It really has that feel of a bunch of guys playing together, IDK, maybe that's cos I've seen the film. Abbey Road is my other favorate, theres just not a single weak moment.

You Never Give Me Your Money
Oh! Darling
Golden Slumbers
Maxwells Silver Hammer (except the chorus)

...are pretty annoying songs IMO.

To be brutally honest if I had to get rid of one of the Beatles It's have to be Paul. Obviously he has written loads of amazing songs for them and I love his bass lines, but I always find that my least favourite songs generally seem to be the one he sings.

No disrespect to him though. He is a genious - but I find alot of his songs too poppy and boring.

There is only so much i can say about the beatles in this forum. If you just listen to their songs with an open mind and hear the talent that was put in its truly amazing. They were the ones who started everything back then. 'Revolver' was the break-through album (as most people say) and with the things they did on its no wonder why it was. Im only sleeping had backwards guitar solo's, john sung out of rotating 'leslie' speakers on 'Tomorrow never knows' and paul brought an orcastra(sp?) in for 'Eleanor Rigby'. Everything they did weather with great effort or no effort at all was increadible. Anyone who plays an intrument and writes songs can agree that what they did was not easy. The beatles are the only band who had 5 songs in the top 5 spots at the same time. They came out with hit after hit and album after album like it was nothing. crazy.


anyone else know that "Got to get you into my life" was written by Paul about marijuwana, i guess he admited it at a press interview during the 90's..kinda crazy if u listen to the lyrics.
