Please Please Me was a #1 they knew The Beatles would become more famous and that closeness would be gone, the feeling of togetherness, unity and personalness. And they were right.

Right...Cathy. I always feel so sad for her when I watch the Anthology DVD's.

She says something like, "let the rest of the country enjoy them...as long as they come back to us once in a while".

The rest of the country? If she only knew!

Does anyone know when that interview with Cathy took place? If it was before their last Cavern performance (cant remember when that was) then they did go back every once in a while for a while.

Are you alright, Mr Sun King? In several recent discussions you have been uncharacteristically belligerent over small matters (which may warrant discussion or even debate, but not to such a heated extent).

I'm okay. I guess I'm just slightly more... susceptible to being belligerent. I do admit to being less then gentlemanly upthread (and in the other threads to which you refer). I'll be more respectful.

Since folks read youtube heres a new one to go to.

Was on itunes and got to the beatles section (they have a promotion on the albums and you can watch the remastered Ticket To Ride video from Help! (which i did)) and reading the reviews (i always find it interesting to see what they are yet take no real notice of them (hey i look at beatles cds in shops and i have them all)). Turns out that Revolver, Abbey Road and Pepper all get 4 1/2 rating and Taylor Swift's Red (first one i picked at random - she the big thing at the moment i believe) gets a 5.

No idea what all that means, probably absolutely nothing, but find it interesting. Doubt anyone else does and why am i posting this?

Forgive me if there's anything in my reply that already has been said. I didn't really feel like reading 3 pages.

Most ''popular'' people I know aren't even liked well by others. They're just popular because they're arrogant and agressive.

 

I myself never really cared for popularity. I was always an outsider and I was fine with that. I had enough friends to have a good social life. It already started in 7th grade, because I wore clothes that were considered uncool and weird. I wore coloured jeans and big bows in my hair. That's when I knew it was okay to be ''weird''. I mean, how stupid are you when you dislike people for their clothes? Not saying that's how all popular kids are, but the ones I know are. You weren't cool unless you were rich and played hockey.

 

As for music, of course the Beatles aren't getting unpopular. They're still one of the, if not the most, influential bands ever. It's so long ago though, of course a lot of people don't know them. Not all parents listen to the Beatles and raise their kids with their taste and not all kids like their parents taste. So even though I hate it to say, but it's kinda logic acts like Taylor Swift are a bit more popular right now. That's what's in. A lot of popular music sucks, like One Direction or Bieber of course, but there's also a lot of modern popular music that's great, like Muse, Coldplay, Mumford and Sons, the Killers..they're all bands I like very much.

 

So popular doesn't always mean crap, but it's just what's in fashion at the moment. It's a hype.

That really doesn't mean anything. I think a lot of the Beatles reviews are about the quality of the remasters and not the actual music.
