a-hard-days-night-paul-6 I always though No Reply was freakish, too, I hope John didn't act on it. But knowing John, he probably did...*sigh*(Is there a thread concerning John's obscure songs? Because there are quite many)

 

I wonder if "I'll be on my way" could be considered dated? It's one of my favorites, actually, but it's very Buddy Hollyish, and well, is a song "dated" if it's very easy to figure out when it's written?

I think a song is "dated" if is not something that would gain an audience in the present time...which is not the case with too many of the Beatles songs, in my opinion...in fact, lots of recording artists are still choosing their 40-50 year old songs to record.

 

John often said he could only write songs that were personal or applied to his life, while Paul did the opposite and wrote in general terms and did more "story-telling" songs...I think probably all of the John songs have some truth in them...
