Since the start of the year, I've been getting in to The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones and I'm wondering if any of you listen to bands from that era as well.
Are there any Beatles tracks where one of them was the primary song writer but didn't sign? Or sing lead? The only example I can think of is Paul singing the chorus to Love Me Do because John was playing harmonica. Are there others?
I've been listening to the Beatles for about 5 years now. Something that I love is that I am still finding new and amazing songs that I never listened to before. Just this week I discovered Nowhere Man and Michelle. Both amazing songs. Paul's vocals are especially incredible in Michelle. It might be strange to some people that it's taken me years and I am still discovering songs, but I guess that's just how I am with music.
I’m not trying to start a war or anything because I know how highly this album is regarded by the Beatles fanbase. However, I really have a tough time understanding how it is widely considered their best album.
I can understand it’s importance, as to how it was the first album of the Beatles really finding their voice, their sound and using techniques that transformed music as it was at the time. Yet when I put it up against other albums track by track, I have a tough time seeing how it could hold a candle to Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, Abbey Road etc. It has some jams for sure, and in no way am I trying to disrespect or tear down the album itself (I still listen to it and enjoy it front to back), but I would love to hear and learn what makes the album so highly regarded and stand out above the other releases.
It’s a great song but to be issued as a single seems kinda crazy to me. However when I try to think of other songs on Revolver that could be a single I’m not too sure. It’d have to be different than Eleanor Rigby, but there isn’t much to choose from that’s single-worthy. And I doubt they’d give George an A-side at this point. What’re your guys’ thoughts? Sorry to ramble I’m a little stoned
Hi, I love the Beatles, especially for their melodies and lyrics. Im just not a fan of the production quality of their songs, since we've come a long way from then for production quality. so all I'm asking is can anyone recommend me some good interpreters/artists/bands that cover the Beatles catalogue? Just something of a more modern, polished and perhaps even poppy sound. I remember seeing across the universe and I was looking for something similar..? thanks.
Also includes A Spaniard in the Works. On sale for his Oct birthday.
Hey Guys, what you think about WTB, PPM, AHDN and Beatles for Sale in Stereo? I Dont have much opinion about it, but its not a EXTREMELY GOOD stereo, i think the duo-mono its very good, maybe better than the Stereo?
I do not like the way they separate the vocals on one side and the instrumental on the other.
I feel like I'm in the minority of people that actually like Paul's newest song off Egypt Station and I feel as if everyone is missing the point. Paul's new album is a concept album and when we first heard of it he said each song is going to be a different "station." He's not out of touch and he's not losing his talent, if anything it's showing he still has it! He's making a concept album at 76! "I don't Know" and "Come on to Me" are two very different songs and I feel as if the whole album will be this way. His website describes two other songs ("Happy With You" and "People want Peace") as an acoustic meditation and an epic multi-movment seven minute closer. I just want everyone to give Paul some credit and instead of disregarding the entire album based on how one song sounds too poppy/modern, just give him a chance.
And besides all of that I think it's a fun song and I don't get why people hate it so much. Especially when the reasoning is that it sounds "too modern" it sounds "like it could be on the top 40".
