Hey. I got you to admit the song has good in it. There are few songs with absolutely no good in them. (Except maybe "Wild Honey Pie.")

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

First of all, I LOVE both "Mr. Moonlight" and "I Saw Her Standing There", specially the last one. Generally, I don't care about lyrics, anyway, but its words are already fine. The important thing here is that anytime I heard this happy, powerful song, I want to stand up and dance, dance and dance! (I'm not lying).

 

So, had anyone heard the original version of "Twist and Shouts"? I think it's awful.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Yeah, the Beatles cover of Twist And Shout is so much better.

WHAT?! YOU DON'T LIKE I Saw Her Standing There?!

Mr. Sun King, you will always be in the minority regrding "I Saw Her Standing There"! Deal with it.

You can't copyright a bass line, Paul recognized a good one in "I'm Talking About You" and used it. Deal with it.

The song Berry sued Wilson for was "Surfin USA" ( he recognzied the melody of "Sweet Little 16")

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about ‚ÄúYesterday‚ÄĚ, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

And I Don't Care. The song is unworthy of the Lennon-McCartney credit it has. I'd Rather have nothing at all


Actually, since it was on
Please Please Me, it had a McCartney/Lennon credit instead. Your move. a-hard-days-night-john-6
I'm going for the originals, by far. All My Loving is brilliant. It's one of the few Paul songs that John said he liked after the Beatles broke up.

Von, 4 Things:
1. I realize I will always be in the minority based on my opinion of
I Saw Her Standing There, and that's fine by me. If You like the song, Great.
2. Plagiarism should still be pursued, because if the song had that much of a resemblance that the Bassline worked twice, It must have been similar in more than just the Bassline
3. Thanks for Clarifacation on the Berry-Wilson lawsuit
4. Calm DOWN!!!! It's just 1 Song!! Stop telling me to deal with it.

And Paulrus, Does Lennon-McCartney or McCartney-Lennon really matter?

The original was ruined by Phil Spector.


Are you surprised by that fact? It's Spector after all
 

He had more hits than misses, but yeah, I wasn't surprised that the producer who ruined it was
Paul McCartney's mate.
 

(1+1)+1=3


Good One. How many hits did he have? I can't think of any.
 

Well, The Long And Winding Road reached number one, as did My Sweet Lord. Most users on here preferred Let It Be to Let It Be Naked in a thread, so we can add the songs from there. Spector mixed Lennon's first three albums, and he worked with the Ramones. He had 25 top 40 hits between 1960 and 1965 ffs.
