The Beatles- (Stoned out of their minds)
Youtube ^ | 10/09/2010 | Unknown

Posted on 10/09/2010 8:06:27 PM PDT by Krankor

While George is completely out of it, oddly enough, Ringo seems fine. Paul is buzzed, as well as John.

That’s because they’re not really playing (or singing).

I never cared for the Beatles.

They were either too “I Want To Hold Your Hand” or too “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.”

But, I must say that George Harrison's music is my style.

I didn’t like the Beatles then. Don’t like them now. They were overrated losers and still are. BTW. I didn’t like Elvis either..

They were popular because they were different and “fresh” in a “Hope and Change” kind of way. The kids loved them because their parents hated them.

And that’s why groups with real talent like the Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, AC/DC, the Eagles, and Pink Floyd have clobbered them in overall record sales over the past 40 years.

The Beatles?! Elvis?! Bunch of non-talents.

Now, the New Kids On The Block. (NKOTB) There’s a bunch of guys who had far more musical talent than the Beatles. I don’t care if the Beatles did write their own material, and played their own instruments, while NKOTB just lip-synched their way to success. Years from now, in the distant future, no one will even remember The Beatles or Elvis. But musical talents like NKOTB and Brittany Spears, that’s who history will remember.

George Harrison became my favorite Beatle. It’s a shame he died so horribly.

Nope...not at all. precursor to the overproduced junk today. Give me one performer with no bells and whistles, no fancy suits, just talent. Better than Beatles any day.

Kingston Trio...that's more like it. The Beatles and the Kingston Trio met early in the Beatle’s career. Capital records had a party and the two musical groups were introduced. It was the same party where Dylan introduced the Beatles to weed. I was hooked on the Trio early in my life when my Father took me to see them at the NCO Club at Yakota AFB back in 1961. Only Bob Shane is surviving of the entire group and he's barely at that.

When I was 10 years old, my older brother got me a copy of The “Red” Album - i.e. a greatest hits compilation of the Beatles from 1962-66. I absolutely loved it! To this day, I much prefer the early Beatles’ work to the more experimental stuff that came later on. I’ll take “Ticket to Ride” and “And I Love Her” over “I am the Walrus” or “Strawberry Fields...” any day.

And don’t get me started on Revolution 9...

Boy, I’m glad to hear someone else say that. I’ve felt so lonely all these years. I never could stand the Beatles, either. Went from being bubble gum to pushing drugs. Give me the Four Seasons any day of the week!

He was certainly the most ‘centered’ of the bunch at the time. Ol’ Ringo seems to have found his way as of late.

Of all the Beatles, Harrison’s solo work was my favorite.

I also really liked his work with the Traveling Wilburys.

Harrison seems a little embarrassed to be forced into lip-syncing a bad song while wearing a pink satin tricorner hat with a green plume.

Vanilla Ice got canned for a far more convincing performance, yet these goofs continued on to be multi-millionaires (all cash kept in brown paper bags).

Were they promoting Magical Mystery at the time or was it Sgt Pepper?

George and Ringo seemed to be the only two who “grew up”. Amazingly, George did get better looking as he grew older. And Ringo is still married to Barbara Bach. Meanwhile, Paul seems to be getting meaner in his old age. Also, I think John looks like a 40 year old housewife with a bad perm in this video.

They don’t look stoned. They look CHEESY and uncomfortable with lipsyncing, which could possibly be the WORST job of syncing I’ve ever seen.

And the inferior cameraman had no idea that one day John would be so important to the fans, as he nearly ignored him completely in the closeups.

“And Ringo is still married to Barbara Bach.”

He’s been “clean and sober” for many years, living happily in a suburb of Lost Angeles.

I had a HUGE crush (that lasted for many, many, many years) on Bobby Goldsboro! The only time my parents allowed me to stay up late to watch the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson was when he was on.

Ringo looks bored. Is he playing some little kid's drum set, or what?

IMO The Carpenters rendition of “Ticket to Ride” is far, far greater than the Beatles version.

“Give me the Four Seasons any day of the week!”

Sitting here in upstate New York I had to laugh at the above sentence.

Come on up, and certain times of year you can indeed have the four seasons any day of the week! LOL.

Too bad his politics are so....you know.

Over 3 decades ago I took my then new bride to an INTIMATE John Hartford concert. No amps, just him, his banjo and that 4x8 sheet of plywood he'd dance on. We had front row seats in a small warehouse converted into a club. Lawn chairs, no a/c and the drinks were...bad.

Since then I've tried to talk her into going to a JP concert but she keeps bringing up the Hartford debacle.

FWIW JP is going to be in Columbus, Toledo and Cincinnati over the next couple of months. That's just a couple hours drive from us in Pittsburgh. Around 2-hundred for a couple of tix.

Just in case Wife is reading this....

Well, look at the thread’s video, and Magical Mystery Tour. Certainly goofy.

Yes they made a lot of money, and some critics loved them. They did a lot of great work.

As for “the history of recorded music”, water has continued to flow in that river, and the hand of time writes on. At that time the Beatles were the most different, most fresh, most popular. Hands down.

Ellie Greenwich even wrote a song complaining, basically, about how popular the Beatles were and how much they changed everything in pop music (for the better, mostly).
