Howdie @Beatleva, nice to have you joining us. 

One thing. There is so much amazing music out there waiting to be discovered so don't refuse to listen to other artists. The Beatles are incredible but you're missing out on blowing your mind on other bands, artists, songs; there is room for other artists too - if anything you come to appreciate the Beatles more.

 

Thank you for the welcome, I will enjoy this forum!

I also want to thank you for the note about listening to other bands. I guess you are right about other artists. Before I got into the Beatles I liked classical music (I've always been the odd-one-out in my class) but now I have stopped listening to it. It is very hard, now I am so critical about other bands. When someone sings, I'll think things like "John Lennon could have done that so much better" or "George Harrison played the guitar much better than you do." It is hard for me to change... But maybe this is just a wave of Beatle obsession, I've only been into the Beatles for 2 months, I might get over it. I'll always love the Beatles, but maybe not the obsessive love a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

I just don't like the music from nowadays. Do any of you know any bands that might somehow be similar to the Beatles, same genre, etc.?

 

Thanks,

Beatleva

Here we go. The new link is

http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....atles-ish/

 

EDIT: when all is said and done, I will probably change the name of the super thread on this topic to "Songs by other bands that sound "Beatles-ish"

I am a 13 year old boy who loves 60s rock. My dad used to play the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix around the house since I was pretty much a newborn baby, and I loved (and still do) it. My earliest memory is watching a recording of the Beatles playing In My Life on the Ed Sullivan show. I now play the guitar, bass, and drums and I dig any kind of music, especially rock, blues, and jazz. I'm excited to be a part of this website and forum. Peace!

 

Also, I love the Yellow Submarine film. blue-meanie

Sorry to disappoint you but the Beatles never played In My Life anywhere (except for the opening few notes at Candlestick Park in August '66).
