Aw shucks, I guess there is more to life than the 60s - but as you'll glean from the brief takes on posts acts presented here, we're not yet convinced that there's more to life than the 70s. Also, 80s and 90s artists have been moved to separate pages.
The thing is that I don't find myself liking the Beatles quite as much as every other rock critic on the web.
Don't get me wrong, I love the band, but they are not my favorite. I do have some problems with them. Their songs are too short. I am a really big fan of long songs and side-longs. They always seem complete and often perfect.
The can be great epics, or pointless but excelllent compsitions. Yes, The Beatles' songs got longer toward the end and there's that thing on the second side of Abbey Road, but look at many of their others. It doesn't feel incomplete, just like it was a great melody that deserved another couple of minutes.
It gives me time to really enjoy the song.
The Beatles penned some excellent lyrics. They are the one of the only bands who can pen sad love lyrics "For No One" that don't end up sounding completely sappy.
However, some of their songs end up entirely stupid. But they make "Octopus's Garden" look intelligent. There seems to be a belief around the earth to the extent of "The Beatles can pen no bad songs. It is true that they didn't know the definition of the word filler, but sometimes the songs they wrote, no matter how hard they tried, turned out awful.
The first song that comes to mind is "Come Together" off of Abbey Road. I can't really put into words what makes me hate it, but it clearly shows that the Fab Four were not the Flawless Four. Does the title of "Most Revolutionary Band" belong with them? The title of "Most Overrated?
Ever hear of The Rolling Stones? How about the title of "The Greatest? I hesitate to say yes or no because of the comments I made on The Who. While I would not pesonally award them the title, it must be noted that most decent rock critics give them the title, so maybe they are the greatest band of all time.
Either the new songtrack or the old album, I don't care. It's in my top 5 beatles songs easily. George writes this simple little ditty that is acid inspired, but look at what it becomes.
Paul's Bass playing rules on this track. Not that his lines are all over the place but it's just awesome. Actually, what am I talking about This is the sweetest, awesomest, most amazing guitar tone and sound the beatles ever released It doesn't sound like the beatles!!!!
Ringo's drumming is outta this world too. The mix on the new yellow sub cd is prob. If at all possible, try to get the unedited 8 min.
I have it and am blown away. The version of 'only a northern song' on the new cd is much better though, since it's in stereo and the fucked up sound effects blow the mind. This tune makes the stuff on MMT seem pennylaneish.
In this case, material created by the Beatles, which true to art's function in society is to reflect the life and times. As for the length of their songs, at the time there were time length constraints placed upon the length of songs by radio stations.
If a song was to receive airplay it had to be short, averaging two minutes thirty seconds, however stations prefered two minutes. The Beatles did push this envelope with Hey Jude which ran over five minutes.
Despite all the enevelopes that the Beatles pushed, had it not been them, it would have been someone else. Personally, all this hype, which is commercially driven is spoiling a good thing. The more their music is repackaged and replayed, the more it destroys its intrinsic value.Watch video · John Lennon's art wasn't just expressed in his music, but in every aspect of his life.
The Beatles—which at that time meant John Lennon, Paul McCartney and in the most palpable argument. What the mainstream thinks and what musicians think has been widely different for at least 20 years now. The mainstream is absolutely rotten to the core at the moment, and the current innovation and influence is pretty much all taking place in the indie and underground scenes.
