I Hate this with a passion. However, what do you guys think

I don't go out of my way to hear it, but if it comes up on iTunes, I'll listen to it (though mainly as background music.) The post on here that talks about all the different things you CAN hear on it has piqued my interest, but again, I'll only keep my ears open to them if it shows up during a string of random plays.

It has made me appreciate more the various (though much shorter) sound collages I've heard from other artists, however.

When friends come over and stay more than I expect it, there's no better song to make them go home. a-hard-days-night-john-1

Seriously? That's too funny!

I remember reading ages ago this article about party tips in some teen magazine, and they did say that you should always not only have crowd-pleasing music, but crowd-clearing music as well. Better to put that on than be the host who says "OK, it's late I need to sleep." Probably much more effective, too.

Priceless! And I can so see you playing innocent about it and saying "Oh, you're leaving now?"

Well I was in my room listening to music loud and as soon as the song started my sister was like "Well ok.. I think we have to go.." so it was not that .. how to say it? Diplomatic.

 

Back to the original question… well I think it's interesting. It's not my favorite songs, but it's growing on me. I think it should be seen as the band's will (especially John) to experiment and try new things.

All That is Fine, But It still is a Piece of GARBAGE

I like it.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

I love it!

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

It's only garbage if you listen to it for the first time expecting something similar to "Revolution" or "Revolution 1." If you listen to it again and know what to expect, it's very interesting. Not something I'd put on an iPod, though. I only listen to "Revolution 9" when I'm listening to the White Album. I can't have it as "background" music at all-- it makes me ill. But when I actually listen to it, it's pretty neat.

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

Can't say I'm too surprised. "Revolution 9" isn't exactly everyone's cup of tea. And given your views of the avant-garde....
