You often find yourself singing ad libs from the Anthology versions to songs when they come on the radio, like this one.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Song selection, fewer songs, ugly album cover art, a perversion of the band's original intentions, horrible "Duosound" (I'm not sure if they kept this but I'm on a roll here) - it's all a rich tapestry of FAIL! But there are threads devoted to it so I won't go on. (I do understand how some people want the James Bond-intro-d "Ticket To Ride", or want CD versions of the albums they used to own, of course...)

YKYAHCBF when...uh, you join a message board to discuss all this trivial stuff that normal folks don't care about!

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

'Revolution 9' and 'You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)'.

Actually, I don't remember. It was too painful.
