    Everybody likes the Beatles (even though many people won't admit it). I grew up on Beatles records.I still listen to them and they always continue to surprise me with how great those records and songs are.

    Beatles rule! My favourite period is probably from Help! to Magical Mystery Tour - before that they were too formulaic and after that they were too Yokoed. Not that they didn't do some good stuff in those other periods of course. Take Abbey Road - a lot of people pick it as the best, and while it's got a lot of great work on it, to me it's brought down by John's "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" - and at almost 8 minutes long, it just kills the album. Worse than George's mystical meanderings of "Within You Without You" on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band, which is 2 and a half minutes shorter and surrounded by stronger songs. Can't help but wonder what direction the band would've taken if John had never met Yoko...

    Also wonder what the sixties would've been like if George Martin had produced the Rolling Stones instead of the Beatles. Sir George was a very integral part of those recordings.

    The Beatles Rule. They did more for pop music in 8 years than most can hope to accomplish in a life time. They will be discussed in 200 years much in the same way we discuss Bach, Beethoven, or Mozart today.

    The Beatles sold in excess of one billion, one hundred million records worldwide; one hundred sixty-six million, five hundred-thousand in the United States alone. They had 27 number one hits. Their compilation of these hits, released 30 years after they disbanded, has sold in excess of nine million units in the United States alone.

    I never really understood what a good song was until I began to listen intently to the Beatles. I was probably 27 years old. The way I listened to music changed. The music styles I liked changed. Sometimes listening to the Beatles moves me to a different 'level'.

    There is no formula, production trick, or breast enhancement that can make music like that. It's a good thing The Beatles came out in the 60s...I don't think they woulda been given a chance these days.

    LOVE the Beatles. Rubber Soul and Revolver are tied for my favorite album, but all of them are great. A few years ago I burned a couple of Beatles compilation CDs for my oldest son (he's 6 1/2 now) and he loves them too. And now my 3 year old is getting into them too. I can't tell how cool it is to be driving down the road and hearing my boys singing along with Love Me Do, Drive My Car, Get Back, etc. Always puts a smile on my face.

    The Beatles are the greatest band of all time, period. People will still be listening to them 200 years from now (as stated above), and beyond. It's difficult think of another band that's even close to comparable. Their longevity will be untouchable.

    What really irritates me is when the flavor-of-the-week boy band comes along and are immediately compared to the Beatles. GIVE ME A BREAK!!! Yes, there may be screaming girls present, but that's about it. It's not even apples and oranges. It's apples and ... what? Dogshit?

    I was fortunate enough to see Paul McCartney on his Back in the U.S. tour. Let me tell you, it was like a religious experience. The man is a LEGEND. "He's old, he's past his prime, bla bla bla." WTF??? It's PAUL McCARTNEY, you idiot! He still plays and sings as well as he ever did, I think. I am glad to be alive at the same time as this guy, and am thankful I got to see him live.

    My 5yo daughter watched him at the Superbowl and now she call him the Rock and Roll Boy.

    I've tried to hate the Beatles, but I can't

    Great songwriting, great proudction, great hooks.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    I just finished reading "The Beatles Anthology" - it took me a long time as I did not read it straight through, but of course the parts I've been reading lately are the parts about the end. And here it is, 30 years later - I've read versions of the story many times and yet it still makes me sad reading about how it fell apart for them. I thought it'd be fun to relive Beatle history sometime - probably never really do it - but to do an 8 year deal where you pretend the first year is '62 and play the albums on the day they came out originally, play the singles, watch the movies, etc. all through the years and just kind of see what it was like timewise every time a new Beatle product came out. It seems so short reading about it, but spread out over 8 years, it seems would give a better sense of what it was really like to experience the changes and everything that went through. I just wish that they'd made a decision in '69 or '70 to take a couple of years off, go do the things they wanted to do, then reconvene and see if they wanted to make music together again. The only part about the book that was wrong was they picked mostly John quotes that were kind towards McCartney, which totally glossed over the mean spiritedness and animosity that plagued their relationship through much of the '70s. Still a good book - just doesn't travel well!

    Whatta silly question!!

    BTW - Was there not a thread on these guys some time ago?? Or am I/have I losing it/lost it??

    I think the question s/b, who DOESN'T like the Beatles??

    If you haven't already, pick up the tribute concert that they did for George Harrison, by Eric Clapton and friends. Most notably, Paul and Ringo. An excellent show.
