@Bongo, I thought you might like this thread since you mentioned the story about your son in another thread.

I wish I could remember how my dad got me into the Beatles. I know it probably started when I was around 8/9, and I really like Revolution, Piggies, and ob-la-di, ob-la,da. But it did take me a really long time to branch out beyond a handful of songs. I could be really stubborn about what I liked and disliked, as most children are.

BEATLES Music gives me Eargasms! By 1966 the Beatles had played over 1,400 shows, toured the world four times and sold the equivalent of 200 million records. At the height of their popularity, and without warning, they pulled the plug and never toured again.

Thanks for the lol, Bongo! I really needed that tonight. I am at work converting MARC records for streaming videos to MARC records for physical DVDs. And I am having to construct LC call numbers for all of them. Yeah, I needed the pick-me-up.

I am in the front car on that going-crazy roller coaster. Just listen for the Ahhhhhhhhhs drifting back your way. :lol:

Get them in early with songs like Yellow Submarine and All Together Now and get more thorough as they grow up. Also, dont corrupt them on modern pop.

P.S. Bongo, I love the Sgt. Pepper skull and crossbones!a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-john-6

I don't think you should shelter your kids from music thats going on right now. That probably would probably make them less interested in the Beatles and more interested in modern pop, anyway.

Well yeah, but you give them too much, they lose the Beatles. I think the trick here is to introduce them to other famous classic rock bands.
