Im not a cat person, would rather have a dog any day. We have cats but only because we stay in the country and they, well one as the other is old and lazy, keep the mice numbers down.

And don't get me started on those who leave their entire inheritance to their pets – not a charity but the actual pet.

Yeah, I think it's basically the "because they're old" explanation.

It's eery to think of a mind that actually believes that Justin Bieber or Justin Timberlake or Robin Thicke, etc, are better than the Beatles.

 

*cough*IactuallylikesomesongsbyRobinThickeandJustinTimberlake*cough*

Don't worry, within a few years those artists will be ''old'' too, and I'm quite sure they won't be legendary.

 

@unknown Yes, choosing drugs and gf over your own son is pretty uncool, but I don't think the majority is aware of that fact. Most people see John as a ''peace and love hmmkay hippie kind of person'', as far as I'm concerned.

Also, dogs own cats. Any day. I like cats, don't get me wrong. Dogs are just more awesome. Well, that actually depends on the dog too but whatever.

But your avatar is a cat…

 

Dog and cats often compliment lifestyles.  Dogs work well for homey, family-oriented people.  Cats usually work better for people on the go, who live with unpredictable schedules.  Would it not stand to reason that Paul would be a dog person and John a cat person, based on their lives?

 

I've had both over the years.  When I was a child, I loved my dogs.  As a busy adult, I like the independence and character of cats.

I've had both too. Well, can't really remember the cat as I was too young, but it was there! We had to bring him away because I was allergic though. Of course my avatar is a cat. Have you ever seen a dog with laser eyes? Duh!

Robin Thicke is a singer who's kind of like JT. He completely changed his image a few years ago. He used to be a one hit wonder, and that hit was ''When I get you alone'', with a sample of Beethoven's eh..fifth? I don't know. Anyway, he used to be this longhaired boho guy and now he's all suave and pretty and Justin Timberlake-ish. His most recent hit is ''Blurred Lines'', which is a song I hated at first, but I caught myself liking it at one point. It's my guilty pleasure. Just like JT. Usually I don't listen to music that even sound anything like their music. It's so not me.

And don't forget he's the son of Canadian low-key celebrity talk-show-host/actor/songwriter Alan Thicke!

I appreciate dogs; but I love cats.

Garrison Keillor once humorously noted the difference between dogs and cats:

"Dogs are loyal; they will wait for you to come home after a long day and will look into your eyes and sit by your side.  Cats will wait until you're asleep and steal all your silverware."

I like JT's song "Strawberry Bubblegum", and I found Robin Thicke's song "Blurred Lines" quite catchy (though also quite annoying…).

"Don't worry, within a few years those artists will be ''old'' too, and I'm quite sure they won't be legendary."

Actually, Robin Thicke seems to be getting rather long in the tooth…blue-meanie

fabfouremily,

Another way to ask my question with special reference to you as you've described your outlook is -- is there any musician or band out there you think is "uncool", and if so, why?  (Choices like Andy Williams, Pat Boone or Mel Torme don't count…blue-meanie)

 

Umm… I dunno, I've never really asked myself that before. There are artists I don't like, of course (like Johnny Cash, for example), but if I think about why I don't like them, it's because of their music, not because of anything they ever did or said. Do I think country music is ''uncool'', and therefore country singers? I suppose so, yes, but that's only my opinion, not a fact.

And to try and get this thread back on track, I asked some people if they thought anything about the Beatles to be uncool and a few said that moptops and the suits/outfits from the Help! period are quite ''uncool'', and would put a lot of young people off listening to them (which I agree with).

 

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

No, I think the Beatles are the coolest! From their "moppy" hair styles to their floral prints and Cuban heels, I think they were--and still are-- quite hip. I also feel that a lot of their style and aesthetic influences a lot of our generation, especially with the "hipster movement" and what not. But no, I still think they are some very cool lads.

This is just a random little thing but whenever I had a free class last year I generally brought in a book (whatever I was reading). One of the girls in my class Shana is a big One-Direction fan and despises The Beatles (even though she only knows Yellow Submarine but she said she likes that song a-hard-days-night-john-7). One day, she was sitting next to me and I brought in this book to read for my religion project:

She then asked me "Was he in the Beatles?" and I said "yeah" and then she said "but he's not even good looking"

Then my Beatley-friend and I exchanged a glance

Followed by me giving a rant about George Harrison and unfortunately that book ^ didn't have any other photos of him because I would have showed:

This

And this

And this

(You get the idea). Unfortunately this is not the first time that this has happened to me, it's actually the 5th :/ Damn you teenagers, look aren't everything!!!! So far I have gotten "George wasn't good looking x2", "The Beatles weren't good looking" and "John Lennon wasn't good looking x2"

When will they learn….

But in good news, I did get a non-Beatles fan saying "Paul McCartney was quite good looking"….it's a start a-hard-days-night-paul-7 I also showed a picture of George and Dhani on an Irish forum where a group of around 15/16 year olds were talking and I did get an "awww they're so cute" off one person :P

AppleScruff,

Also, those non-Beatles fan kids might more readily come to appreciate all of the Beatles' "good looks" after watching one of their movies (like Help!) -- seeing anyone in action, moving and talking (and doing silly things) is always better than just still photographs.  You could just show them a scene or two to give them the general idea.

Hmmm I have a couple of Help!-era music promos on my phone I shall give it a try if she ever brings it up again a-hard-days-night-george-10

I don't really care if anyone else thinks George (or anyone else) is good-looking or not. I think he was, and I think it's a bit stupid and pointless to say something like ''he's not even that good-looking''. What has that got to do with anything? Is his talent as a guitarist not enough to be in the band or something? Let it be Katie. You're (we're) right, they're wrong :D

This is a BBC thing where they got teenagers to listen to Love Me Do and say what they thought about it. It might be helpful in answering the question.
