You have despair though....right?

The correct answer was "only in size 10"

Like a few of the older members on this forum, i grew up listening to the Beatles. They are part of my life. I have always enjoyed their music, and i guess i always will, their songs never become old, infact quite the opposite, i am constantly rediscovering their music, as i learn to play their songs. biggrin.gif

As with most I grew up w/ The Beatles. I like them just because they played darn good music.
I like "Ludwig Van" (ref: to Clockwork Orange.) the best.

Being from Alabama where The Beatles were looked down upon in their early days I know no real older beatles fans. I am only 30 minutes away from Birmingham,Alabama ,where in the late 60's, a bunch of morons who had their southern Baptist religious beliefs all backwards while KKK and other town members decided to hold a rally and get everyone to come to town and burn their Beatles records. Fortanly my parents and grandparents were
too far in the country to even know who the Beatles were haha (moonshine and bluegrass were more there bag)so they never herd Lennon SAY WHAT ALABAMIANS INTERPRET as "BEATLES ARE BIGGER THAN JESUS". I guess they were too busy planning lynchings and performing hate crimes(note: none of my family that I have ever know were involved in these, well my grandfather was a Moonishiner and Preacher haha needless to say everyone came to church) anyways moral of story not many old Bealtes fans round here.

Oh. Sorry, I had assumed we were taking the piss out of Christian.

And say why it never worked for me.
Something to do with violence
A long way back, and wrong rewards,
And arrogant eternity.

You both suck.

I was in school when the Beatles music hit the US. I remember discussions in the locker room while getting ready for basketball practice about them. We were uncertain about them, I didn't care much for the early songs that were being played on radio, but thought they were cool as individuals, and some of us soon had the hair and were pressured by the administration to get it cut. A group of us had this deal going that the first of us to get a haircut had to buy dinner for the rest of the group. We were some shaggy Okies in the mid 60's.

We could get the signal from the WLS station in Chicago late at night, and they would play the three top most requested songs in the Chicago land area, at ten....usually it would be three Beatles tunes. I would listen to that, and got to where I began to think their music was indeed pretty good. I eventually got to be a fan of their music.

Recently I watched that video Across the Universe, and was reminded how good their stuff actually was.

I've never watched it I am afraid I won't like it. If the 2008 generation of teens like this movie I dont think I would.

I love 'em. Me and my best mate used to watch the Beatles anthology on mixed up videos recorded off ITV on weekend morning. Still listen to them all the time.

I am most influenced by the Beatles. I love the Beatles because, no matter what mood your in, there is always a song that will emphasize it. I love Please Please Me ect, because they captured the American craze, but I adore their latter stuff because they had little obligation and had more creative freedom with their music. Their English carnival music (Mr. Kite, ect.) is pure maddness and I love it.
