I don't mean dated as in old-fashioned or hasn't aged well. I mean dated as in you can easily tell the song was recorded in a certain time period. 

This is an interesting thread, M3. Most of their songs, to me, are timeless. But I can see why your mom chose The Word as it sounds like a 60's "call-to-action" song. I get the same feeling while listening to John's Some Time in NYC album where every other song seems to be a protest song.

If I had to pick one original Beatles song that sounds outdated, I'd vote for Mr. Moonlight

A couple of people mentioned Love Me Do. I guess the fact that it only features 12 words would qualify it as "early 60's simplistic". There, I've coined a new genre.

 

*you're counting the words in LMD aren't you?*

"Mr. Moonlight" is an original? 

By the way, welcome back! :D

See? I miss two weeks and I get soft in the head. I should have left out the word original.

Thanks for the "welcome back". If you want it back, I'll understand.

I bet I'm late here too! I bet when I read all of the posts, someone might have already said this, but I would say "Back In The USSR" and "Revolution" are dated, becuase of the time frame. Like the Chairman Mao part, or the fact that they call the Soviet Union, (that is what it's called currently, right? Russia? Ugh...I hope I got it right, because that would be rude) the USSR. Or in "Revolution" becuase things have changed, don't you think? Even a little bit?

It's called Russia. The Soviet Union is what most people called the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (Socialist Soviet?), or USSR.

Okay, thanks. Just kind of slow, but I knew that it's Russia. Thanks for clarifying it.

At the risk of going off-topic, the USSR (aka the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, aka Soviet Union) is now 15 separate countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan (thanks Wikipedia).

Although Russia is the country people associate with The USSR.

I tried to think of something powerful and moving… and failed.  "You were given a choice between war and dishonor - you chose dishonor, and you shall have war" - Winston Churchill

It was certainly the biggest, and where the power lay. But Paul managed to make the distinction ("The Ukraine girls really knock me out"; "Georgia's on my mind") so there's no harm in being correct.

No, it's not. It can be unreliable on "hot" topics or articles that haven't ever been edited, but the better articles are quite accurate. For example, this website is cited on most of the Beatles-related articles I've seen, and there aren't any crazy claims about songs. It depends on which articles you read, and how seriously you take them.

For me, Wait is rather dated, in a similar way to The Word.

I strongly agree with Love Me Do, and would add Yellow Submarine, and most of the first four albums and accompanying singles.

Seriously, who deemed Yellow Submarine worthy of an A Side?

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

I think any thing to come out in 1967. Especially Lucy in the Sky or All You Need Is Love

'67= Psychedelia + Love + Drugs

 

Love Me Do as well.
