do I need to listen to them all in order in one day...?

That was going to be my suggestion. On many occaisions I've started with "I Saw Her Standing There", singing (poorly) at the top of my lungs all the way up to "The End".


Another remedy is to create a playlist featuring songs from all the artisits you have and playing it on shuffle mode. When I do that, and a Beatles song comes up randomly, it really makes me smile.

Hope this helps!mal-evansneil-aspinall

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I've been a Beach Boys kick lately, and it felt really good when I came back to the Beatles.
Like many other people on here have said, the best thing is to surround yourself with new artists/bands, and get some change of scenery, and then go back to the Beatles when you feel you're ready. The Beatles will sound as new to you as they did the first time you heard them, guarenteed.

Every January I listen to the Beach Boys discography in order, even the crap.  And there was a lot of crap...


I feel bad for the Beach Boys.  They zigged so many times when they should have clearly zagged.

E is for 'Ergent'.

I keep WISHING I could appreciate the Beach Boys' SmileySmile-thru-Surf's Up stuff more than I do. So many folks whose opinions I value rave about it, makes me wonder what I'm missing.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I feel the same way, Von. ahdn_george_05 I've never been bitten by the Beach Boys bug. Their music is all fine and dandy to listen to at parties and various other social gatherings, but I've never had the desire to listen to them on my own. They just don't seem to reach that...musical standard of meaningfulness...I'm looking for, ya know? Not that I'm knocking The Beach Boys--I can certainly understand why people would enjoy their music--they're just not my cup of tea.

"I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know? I'm just one of those people."
