Containing Multitudes Since 2004
well, its about time- i turned my back on them years ago.
that's right shahn........let not your troubled mind be trifled with greatness
Now, now . . . don't let's be snippy with one another. I like the Beatles quite a bit, but I think there's an argument to be made that something was lost when George Martin started foisting Harpsichords and Flutes on them (I know, it was supposedly their idea, but . . . please). When it was good, even great, it was despite these amendations in their sound, not because of them.
no seriously- i was born in the 60s and i don't think i've gone an entire week since without hearing a beatles song. maybe it was good, even great at one time, but frankly i'm sick of them. how do four 20 year olds have a stranglehold on music 40 years later? marketing!
That's why I became a Kinks fan. Well, and most other British Invasion bands besides the Beatles, although I do think the UK version of the Hard Day's Night album is criminally underrated in the shadow of the pop monoliths that followed it.
Wait...I'm not Mary. Sorry about that. (s.w.a.c.)
