Do you dig the Beatles?


The Beatles are probably still my favorite band of all time. Besides writing and performing great tunes, they defined an era in western culture. An examination of the musical transitions the band underwent from 1962 to 1972 clearly shows that this was a band that was never content to rest comfortably on the (unprecedented) success they had achieved. They were always pushing forward, trying new things.

So, in the interest of Friday fun, I invite you to take part in my Beatles poll.

Beatlemania!
Who is your favorite Beatle?
John
Paul
George
Ringo
No favorite, I like them all

Cool, man!

Has anyone seen the amazing movie, "The U.S. vss John Lennon?" That is why he's my fave fab four member.

Their music was so reflective of the social changes that it could be studied instead of a history book for the 60's and 70's.

As for great music; there is so much from which to choose, but "Norwegian Wood" still evokes some great feelings. Kinda like smelling marijuana...smells SO good, but we dare not indulge (randoming and all that jazz)....

Bonjour from France, Dade!

Thanks for the link and polls. Got to say, I think that Eleanor Rigby is perhaps one of the most beautiful and tragic poems ever penned.

As for the favorite member, I used to say Paul, but he's been a bit questionable lately, so that taints my perception. I rather think of them as a whole, indivisible. I don't think any of them as individual artists were anything near what they were as a group. White is my favorite album. Come to think of it, I think I completed my Beatles album collection by burning some of your discs!

Big love to you and Maty...
