Well, I just learned about The Beatles in school today. I have this music class where we learn about American popular music. It's a six week class and it's almost over, but I have learned a lot about the United States' history of music.


Well anyway today I heard The Beatles and I actually listened to the music (I had heard it before, but never really listened) and I loved it instantly. So now I am curious. Are there any other Beatles fans here at LF?

I hope you realize that The Beatles were a Liverpool band, therefore from the United Kingdom. :indif:

Do I like the beatles?

OMG TEH YEES!

What albums have you listened to so far?

They still had a very large impact on the music history in the US(besides, that's where they were introduced to certain mind enhancements...)

You JUST learned about the Beatles?

Meaning you never heard them before?

Meaning you've been missing out on some of the greatest music of all time?

The Beatles are awesome. I'm not ALWAYS in the mood for them, but 95% of the time, Beatles = Hell Yes. ;)

The Beatles ROCK

My favorite album is Abbey road. (Little known fact: "Abbey Road" was the last RECORDED album of The Beatles, not "Let it be", Let it be was just released in america a tad late)

The White album is also awsome. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is one of the best songs The Beatles made, clearly George Harrison in his prime.

But I cant pick favorites, everything Beatles is AWSOME

Yup. We took class notes and titled them "The British Invasion."
I have heard of them before, but I never really listened to their songs.



And ZBomber I haven't given the presentation yet, but thanks to you I have more than enough information. And I even got a music sample for extra credit. I got their album "Toys in the Attic" from my dad.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps also had Eric Clapton on guitar, so that's why it's so kickass. Even though I think Something is a much better Harrison song.

My all time favorite Beatles song has to be A Day in the Life on Sgt. Pepper's. Simply majestic, and Lennon's vocals are almost orgasmic.

Since we're talking about our favorite Beatle's songs, I'd have to say "Cry Baby Cry" off of the White album.

*cough*Lennon>McCartney*cough*

I also really like "Girl", but it's not in my top favorites.

Even though they're kinda fuddy duddy, Beatles music still sounds pretty sweet.

It's funny ... when I was a kid there was a big thing that some famous kid (or kid of a famous person ...) who, when asked about the Beatles, answered "You mean Paul McCartney was in a band *before* Wings?"

Of course, that was when Wings had tons of hits, so it must have been 74 or 75 ...

Now if you mention Wings you get :confused:

My brother was a much bigger Beatles fan than I, but my taste has always ranged a bit to the avante ... I like their mid-60's stuff like Rubber Soul & Revolver quite a bit, as well as a smattering of their later stuff. Still have some of it and some L&M solo stuff on my iPod.

Meh... Yellow submarine, anyone?

Of course I like them... I'ts only the thing that my dad was born bour 58 years ago, and so I've listened at least 13˝ years for Beatles...
I still have times when I need the songs to calm personal emotions, but otherwise, I'm sick of 'em...

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely hearts club band! w00t!

I like Yellow Submarine, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Come Together, I Want to Hold Your Hand, and Hey Jude. Those are the only ones I can name at the moment. Anyone know where you can find some of their albums?

That's vinyl, to be specific. Vinyl or cd, it doesn't matter as they are still a record of the music.

If you kids are after something more modern than those oldfashioned cd thingies then you may be in trouble.

For some reason the beatles won't let ANY of their music on ANY of the download sites. So the only online options for fans are either p2p or *cough*allofmp3dotcom*cough*. :(

Sgt Peppers, Abbey Road are the best. White album, revolver and rubber soul are cool. Or you could get those two red and blue double-disc best-of sets.

I think one advantage that beatles had was that they went out on top, not hanginf around like the rolling stones or other bands of that time.

Back when foriegn people listened to british music... sigh... good times...

You LIKE YELLOW SUBMARINE????!??

- Possibly only their worst song ever. You do realise they were all drugged up when they produced it... figures when you listen to their song.

Come together is awesome and so is Hey Jude. You like Ticket to Ride? - another classic. And how about "Juju was a man who thought he was a woman..." :)

It's also one of their most famous songs.

That would be the song "Get Back" and it is "JoJo was a man who thought he was a loner".


Yellow submarine is a pretty decent song, but I can't believe nobody has listed Yesterday as their favorite beatles song...either that or Let it Be...those two songs rock my face.

My all time favorite Beatles song has to be A Day in the Life on Sgt. Pepper's. Simply majestic, and Lennon's vocals are almost orgasmic.

there are 2 versions, the one that comes with the CD that is played by the beatles and another one live played by Eric Clapton and George Harrison, and they are different (the same lyrics tho). IMO is the best harrison song, i just got tired of "something" and "here comes the sun".

Anyway my favorite ones are:
Strawberry fields
Something
I am the Warlus
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
Free as a Bird
A hard Days night
In my life
A Day in the Life
Hello Goodbye
Lady Madonna
Lovely Rita
I'm so tired
I'll be Back
Here comes the Sun
Cry Baby Cry
Blackbird
And some more :p

And yes I LIKE THE BEATLES! just look my sig ;)

If anything, drugs ENHANCED the quality of music. Take 70's Aerosmith for example.

They're all good, for whatever mood your in.

Dang. What I meant was "Sweet Loretta Modern thought she was a woman
But she was another man" - but you get the picture. :P

I started singing Let it be before, then put the three dots after it - which implies it's one of my favorites.

-- Note to people that I don't hate Yellow Sub because the beatles were drugged out of their skin when they sung it, but because I really think it is the let down of the series --

Yesterday's alright. Bit slow though...

Let it Be and Hey Jude often get voted the most popuar songs ever (although Bohemian Rhapsody is often in there two).

Lucy in the sky with diamonds is another fave of mine.

I thought Clapton guest guitared on the album version too? I wouldn't swear to it.

Did clapton steal harrison's wife, or harrison steal clapton's?

I think Clapton guitared on the album version, because Harrison couldn't do the vibrato on guitar like Clapton could.

Maybe I'm wrong though.
