This onion went one too many layers of dry Snark de Internets. I can hear poor Monbla stomping his hat Yosemite Sam-style as I type this. Laughing

Okay okay so I know who they are and probably have every album they put out, it is fun getting you guys going sometimes though when it comes to younger generations. It's the Beatles, even my kids sing Penny Lane. (It was so tempting to put Rocket Man in there instead of Penny Lane). SO sorry to not meet some peoples requirement for a good thread hijacking but golly gee maybe some "Help!" and a little less "Hey Jude" and ya might not be such a downer of the fun Yoko Very Happy

You just have to be in the 'right frame of mind' to figure out some of their later stuff. Though I admit, the White Album is a little strange - even for me.



Here's one for Kyle - a lotta depth in the words...

Ever know someone that offers you potato chips, and even though you say "I'm not into chips, thank you..." they ask, "...well, what about barbecue chips?...How about Doritos?...Fritos? There has to be something here you'll like..." Let's just say it's me, not you. Perhaps I just don't get it, or I'm feeble minded. Laughing Call me a freak and move on, works well. Smile

I've heard the Beatles. I've listened to them. I've read their lyrics, pored over their music structure, and there's a formula there I just don't get--yet everyone uses it. It's good music, if you're into that sort of thing. It's not great music.

Lyrics are usually lost on me. I have a hard time understanding people's intentions when I'm paying for a tank of gas, so lyrics are like Psychological Algebra to a mental-math dunce. No wonder I prefer instrumental music.

Funny thing about the Fab Four, I was never really into them all that much when they were together. Sure, I had a couple albums, and knew every one of their hits and singles. Had a bunch of them too. But never my #1 band back then.

Started really appreciating them the more I got into playing in bands as a budding guitarist in the late 60's/early 70's. By the mid 70's I was a believer and acquired a full set of their vinyl I still play to this day. In fact just got done running the set from the beginning. Love vinyl btw. Laugh if you want.

Innovative and creative doesn't do nearly enough justice. They changed the whole freaking direction rock/pop was going. Broke the rules, made new ones and broke those as well. Totally creative and free. And none of them were formally schooled in reading music.

We owe much to the groundwork the Beatles had to offer during their heyday. Even if you're not into what they did they clearly changed the fabric of music.

I was there. Saw it, experienced it, played it. Still influenced by it.

Am I some kind of expert? Hell no.

Just MHO from a guy who came up musically in the late 50's/60's and went through the end of Elvis and Doo-Wop, Mowtown, Soul, Top-40, and all of it.

OK, off the soapbox now......






Cheers,

RR

My favorite quote from Peter Townshend (NOT of the Beatles):
An interviewer commented that a lot of water had gone under the bridge since they started "X" years ago. The interviewer said, "You're not the same despirate young man you were when you started."

Townshend replied: "No, I am a despirate old fart. BUT NOT BORING, THOUGH!"

'nuff said.

The world was ripe for a new sound, after the newest sound of the time had become tired. It was a new era and a new attitude, breaking free from the jazz/blues-based music of the prior four (or so) decades as it made its way through. The times changed for the Beatles more than they changed for the times--if the world wasn't ready for it, it wouldn't have happened. It's a similar breakthrough that happened when Nirvana started to gain momentum in the 90s, after the 70s/80s wrestled and experimented with technology, music television and the harsher sounds of punk rock and metal. Nirvana is my generation's "Beatles." Similarly, they're just alright to me--few good tracks, well put-together, but they just focused the same beam of light in just the right way on the right people-surface. Timing? Innovation? I dunno. "But it's the lyrics!" A strange language good for those tuned in to the social world around them. I feel like I'm translating Navajo for the war effort at times. Laughing

Classical music periods all do the same thing, have their star composers and "new sound," it just quickens these days, and it doesn't take 50 - 100 years to change the tunes for folks.

I like sound and sounds (and hate them sometimes... Laughing )

PostSubject: I don't "get" Nirvana, Kyle.   Sat Sep 08, 2012 10:45 am

It's a generational thing, brother. In the sixth grade, we all divided ourselves among those that liked The Beatles or the Stones. Across the pond, the devide was mirrored in the conflict between Mods & Rockers (look it up, kids). The Beatles progressed from that earlier pop music to the Sgt Peppers/White Album/Abbey Road work that has become iconic. The point of this ramble is not to worry, Kyle. You'll never "get" The Beatles as they were a product of a time you didn't experience. Now as for Nirvana, I once heard a guy play Nirvana tunes on a Sousaphone...

Oh, no. No no no you don't. No pulling the "ignorant kid don't get it" routine with me, sir. Laughing

The "generation gap" idea itself has transcended to "old thinking." You'll have to take my word for it being a little closer to the younger set than you are. Razz But in all seriousness, if you talk to "kids" (these days, shaking fist), they often have more of a knowledge of the Stones, Bob Dylan, Elvis, Sonny Rollins or anyone "not of today" than the folks that helped bring them to fame. There's a reason for that: have you turned on the radio lately? 'Nuff said. Smile No, they can't ever go back and experience what it was like and why that music is important, but they can certainly experience it as a snapshot of a generation. That much we all get--but...it's still pop music. The Beatles found a formula and niche of their time period; a producer's wet dream. Elvis paved the road.

All were crafted to be appealing to normal people...Call me "normal" or "average" with a straight face. Seriously. Do it.

Again, 'nuff said. Smile

I'm going to tell Fred your personal (VERY PERSONAL) requests on the sousaphone if you don't behave. Razz Laughing Think sousaphone lap dance. You think he won't do it?

People say you stay with music from you high school/college years. Well I guess I must of been out of the mainstream. I see the 80's as the dark age of music. 10 years of B.S. pumped out from the music factory with tons of marketing and no talent.

I listen to Jazz from the 50's. Psychedelic/folk from the 60's and 70's. Classic rock from late 60's through 70's. Blues from just about any period. About the only thing modern I listen too is Groove Salad from SomaFM at work to keep from being distracted by office chatter and folks that carry the classic rock sound torch such as Gov't Mule / Warren Haynes. The Black Keys remind me of The Band is some folksy rock ways. I do like Jack White's new album. Looking at my collection of music I have very little from 80's, 90's, 00's.

As for this place, what is not to love?

Keep Calm, Smoke On!

If by "handsy" you mean taking all the whiskey and fist-fighting over the jukebox, yeah, probably. No
