Heehee a-hard-days-night-george-9 Look, you!

Hey Joe, do you like the songs "Anna (Go to Him)" and "Mr. Moonlight"?

Some of us are confused about why people hate them so much.

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

I don't really care for Anna. I don't know why people hate Mr. Moonlight so much. Not that good, but not nearly as bad as people say it is.

Darn you! You made "Mr. Moonlight" get stuck in my head!

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I love Anna. My parents used to play Arthur Alexander's original when I was a kid. I love both of them now.

Mr Moonlight I don't particularly care for, though Lennon's vocals are fantastic. They should have put Leave My Kitten Alone on Beatles For Sale instead.

Oh, that's a hard one. Some of them I've never heard, or only a couple of songs.
  1. Plastic Ono Band (does it have to be just the Nuclear Band? If so they'd be further down the list)
  2. Abba (most consistent of the lot)
  3. The Rolling Stones (I've always found them massively overrated, but I like the stuff between Beggars Banquet and Exile)
  4. Wings (for the Band On The Run album)
  5. The Fireman (last album was great, the first was rubbish and I haven't heard Rushes)
  6. The Bee Gees (I like a few of their songs but I wouldn't go to the effort of buying any)
  7. Traveling Wilburys (not particularly bothered, though I haven't heard much by them)
  8. All-Starr Band (don't really care. Sorry Ringo)
  9. The Roundheads (never heard of them)

What's the silliest thing you have ever done related with the Beatles?  (Mine screaming as a teenager in Paul's concert and telling everybody about it)

 

What's the Beatle related-object (book, album) that you bought regardless the price? (For example, I got Beatles Stereo Box Set knowing I was going to sacrifice many things in at least 2 months)

1. I got my grandmother to make me a multicoloured jacket like the one John Lennon wears in the I Am The Walrus video. I chose a load of fabrics and everything. When she sent it to me I tried it on and it looked ridiculous, and I never wore it despite being a teenage hippy (this was around 1991 when I was 15).

2. I'm actually quite selective of what I buy, as I have quite a lot of books and CDs and don't want any more unless they're really useful. But there are two books I'd spend money on: the autobiographies of Pete Shotton and Allan Williams. I used to have both when I was younger, but gave them to a charity shop when I was moving house once. I'd love to have them again but they go for quite a bit on eBay.

I did buy The Beatles Live! by Mark Lewisohn, and it didn't have anything that wasn't in the Chronicles book. That was a bit of a waste of money. As for other things, the site makes a reasonable (not huge) amount through Google ads each month so I can normally buy box sets etc if I need them. Basically, any cash that comes in gets recycled into Beatlesness somehow.

Okay Joe, Cool! Very surprised you have The Wilburys that low. They are pretty great in my book….and no not really just Nuclear. That was just sort of a joke. I can't really stomach The Bee Gees so i just threw them in there to see what you thought. The Roundheads are Ringo's band.

You should try to find it, if only for a family momento.

Oh no particular reason. I think because it looked fairly neutral and wasn't one of them goofing around.

This is a great idea. Thanks to Joe for being such a good sport.

This brings me to my 2-part question for you Joe.

What is the best and worst thing about running this site?

The best thing is that nobody's had a bad word to say about it. That's two and a half years and every bit of feedback has been positive (apart from the nutters, but I ignore them).

It's harder to pinpoint a single worst thing. If it was up to me I'd sit in my bunker and write articles all day, and not have to worry about the server going awry, people having trouble logging in, the odd troublemaker or spammer. Also I've spent quite a bit of time researching the articles, but sometimes someone comes along and posts a contradictory comment, which means I have to go away and do more research. Occasionally they're right but not every time. I don't mind improving things but it keeps me from the stuff I really love doing.

Oh yeah, and I get the odd review copy of a book, a cheque from Amazon or a payment from Google (or an invite to Abbey Road, sadly a one-off). That's up there with the good stuff, obviously. As is getting to know loads of good people I probably wouldn't have encountered.
