I just wanted Lil Wayne to shut up and Help! to play properly.  Its only fair to address the balance. Who would have thought an umbrella would have been so useful?

Never seen that promo! Fabulous. Love Paul, George and Ringo peeking out right and left behind John.

I actually prefer that Help! promo to the dartless promo taken from the Help! movie.

There is also an I Feel Fine promo with the beatles eating fish and chips in 1965 whilst it plays, there is little effort to mime along. Brian wasnt happy with it so it was never shown officially.

Re: Help! video.

 

ROFLMAOOOOOOOOOOOO!! *wiping tears from eyes* The video is just fantastic!! The WTFs faces of George and Ringo are great!!

 

Hahahahaha that video is just hillarious. It shows how they didn't give a damn about the video and they were just eating their chips. But then again, who had the brilliant idea of doing this?? LOL!!

I kind of missed out on the party, but I just wanted to add something. The Beatles are the base from which I enjoy music. It took me a little while, but I can now appreciate almost all of their songs as ones I love, and that's subconsciously imprinted on my brain and musical taste now. I guess that I, in a way, compare new music to the sounds I've heard from the Beatles, and judge music from that. I have found tons of music, new and old, based off of that i believe. It's not like I think"…hmm…this rhythm is the same as Octopus' Garden". The Beatles have just become my standard of "what's good" and I think my subconscious brain realizes the chord progressions and such.

So they are, of course, my favourite. But I very much like Coldplay, the Stones, the Kooks, Simon&Garfunkel, Radiohead, Chuck Berry, U2 and the like. And I believe I like them so much because I started with the Beatles.

 

As was said, we are so lucky to have all of their music at our fingertips. the world is a great place with it.

Kedame, this is so great! I bet we all feel the same way. If everybody appreciated what they had, like you do, then there would be peace

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

Wow! I just had an epiphany, and I am feeling kind of emotional about it. I needed to share it with people who will understand, so here I am.

My sister's fiancee loves Lil Wayne and said he could play guitar, so I looked up videos of him "playing." It was horrible, and his fans just cheered and cheered! I couldn't believe how they thought he was so good! It was funny, but it also made me really sad. These kids have probably never heard a good guitar solo in their entire lives! How sad…

Then, I put on some McCartney…I know it's a little cheesy, but a great feeling just came over me. It sounds crazy, but I feel connected to this music, to the person, to The Beatles as a whole, to all of you. The music is beautiful, the lyrics are great, the talent is there. I know some people like to make fun of McCartney (he's cheesy, looks like a woman, is a sellout (how I hate that fucking term with a passion!!!), he has no emotion in his music (what am I feeling now?)), and they like to tease younger kids that like The Beatles sometimes, but the music means so much to me. It's hard to explain it, but I can see it in the way Inner Light and mith talk about George and in the way all of us talk about The Beatles. But it's not just the music…it's knowing that even though The Beatles could be as fallible as the next person, they were generally good people.

I just can't believe how lucky I am to be able to turn on my computer and hear anything I want by all of them, how lucky I am to have access to videos and photos and interviews…and the music…God, the music. What would I do without it? I would still be in a silent world where I was bored by music.

Goodness, I'm getting choked up here. It's so corny, I know…

I hope all those Wayne fans can feel a modicum of how I feel when I hear the music I am listening to now. I know words and rhythm are important, but damn…the music was fucking gone! I just don't see how you can get a feeling of pure pleasure like MUSIC brings from listening to meaningless words over nonexistent music backing. That is not to say I think all hip hop is bad. For instance, I like Eminem…he doesn't make me feel like this, but his words are at least good.

Jesus, I love The Beatles, and I love Paul McCartney. I am so thankful I was put on this Earth at a time when my musical idol is still making wonderful music!

Forgive my sentimentality!

I've been thinking this a lot lately. That's why if Paul comes to my area this year, I'm making it my mission to see him finally in concert. I don't want to let that chance slip away.

Haha I forgot I already posted on this thread back when it started, and defended Lil Wayne without having ever having heard him, just on principle!

And now that I've finally seen a video of his guitar "skills", all I can say is yeah, it's pretty lolworthy.

I had a similar realization earlier on today.

It was when the song 'Long, Long, Long' was mentioned on another thread, and I commented on George's voice. The Beatles are there with me every day of my life, every moment that makes up those days. They're there in little things like my school diary, which is covered in lyrics, and in big things, like (hopefully, one day) my wedding. Someone says something and, one way or another, I think of them. And I'm grateful for it because my mental health would be in a worse situation than what it is if it weren't for The Beatles, among other (few) things, of course (no hyperbole here, though it may seem over the top).

I was thinking of when I went to Liverpool last summer, for the first time, and visiting all these places that I'd read about so much. And how strange it was. Good, very good, but at the same time very sad.

I love them, truly love them, as if I knew them. And that I'm grateful for.

Emily you took the words out of my mouth. I hope to go to Liverpool the minute I'm finished school (in 2 years) and just walk around the places I've read about, heard about and seen on my computer, my phone or the telly. Their music (both as The Beatles and as solo artists) have helped me through tough times and taught me so much. In a light hearted fashion their music and lives has inspired me in many different parts of my life and I feel as if I know/knew them personally and I have been often told "you know some of them are dead and the rest are 70" but I don't see it that way, they're still them 20 year old lads from Liverpool with big dreams and aspirations that made great music and I think I'll always see them that way. It still hasn't hit me that George and John are gone yet either but god when Paul and Ringo go it'll kill me, but their still here and we can still enjoy them and I'm happy!

Don't want to sound to morbid here but Ringo and Paul dying is something I've thought about before. People dying recently that haven't had as much effect on me, though some, (like Ravi Shankar, for example) made a big impact on me, and took me a while to get used to, and move on with. I have no idea what I'll be like when somebody whom I think of as a friend, or more than a friend, dies. I hope I don't find out any time soon, either.

When those four lads decided to make a record fifty years ago, I bet no one could anticipate that, even now, they're still making people lives better.
