Lennon Closet - why is the fact that their favourite song also well known bad? My favourite's While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and no one here will accuse me of not being hardcore.

I hate the Beatley moments when you see people at school with a Beatles shirt on and you say, "What's your favourite song?" and they say something like
Hey Jude or Here Comes The Sun. Plenty of people like that are at my school...a-hard-days-night-john-3I don't try to get them to like the underrated but good songs because they have already insulted me.

 

You could say there's a good reason these songs have become well known + if the Beatle knowledge of the folks at your school isn't as complete as yours, I'm not sure why that's an insult!.

But yes, many of the lesser known songs stand up very well to the classics. That's part of what makes the Beatles THE BEATLES.

Great moment a couple of minutes ago:

On YouTube, watching Jon Stewart get chased by Stephen Colbert through the Daily Show offices, you see a picture of - who else - John Lennon. Funny clip - John Oliver ftw.

I went to the Wisconsin Dells last week, and they were playing Day Tripper at one of the parks. Then in That 70s Show there is a wings poster in the basement and then there's another one in Donna's bedroom.

How do you know that? How do you know for certain that those weren't merely the first song(s) they remember, and love them for their sentimental value? And, consider why Hey Jude and Here Comes The Sun are famous - they're F***ing great songs!! Again, my favourite song is While My Guitar Gently Weeps - both versions. Does that make me less of a hardcore Beatles fan? I think not. Don't judge - be happy that people are even TRYING the Beatles, instead of that drivel of pop crap. Don't make them think that they shouldn't give the rest a try. Please?

What makes you a hardcore Beatles fan is if you REALLY love them. It doesn't matter what your favorite song is. Because what if somebody has a sibling that's a fan so they need to listen to them everyday? Then they'd know all of their songs, but maybe they aren't a fan. But someone could have just heard two songs by them and then suddenly felt a connection with them, maybe they already loved The Beatles.

I am very happy, and one reason is because I have The Beatles. Thank you!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

My 2 sisters and 2 of my brothers know all the beatles songs and the beatles are by far their favourite band/artist but they wouldnt consider themselves hardcore, just really big fans.

It does bug me when someone states Penny Lane is their favourite song and love the beatles but when you ask them what other songs they like they have no idea of any. And Imagine is not a beatle song - that trully pissed me off. Someone claimed they loved the beatles and then said Imagine was their favourite.paul-mccartneyblue-meanie
