Your Favorite Beatle, And Why

John

You have to ask why? Hmmm…

Well… his heart, his artistry, his humor, his voice, his heart-breakingly beautiful songwriting, his honesty, his unbelievably charming smile, his charisma, his genuineness, his toughness and vulnerability (which coexisted so endearingly), his quick and brilliant mind, his edginess, his non-conformity, his lifelong struggle, his bravery, his hipness, his sense of style, his nutiness, his willingness to say/do anything, his ability to inspire such positive ideals despite his own deeply dark personal demons…

That's just a starter. Wink But I love Paulie, too… and George… and Ritchie.

Hello everyone!
New to the thread Laugh

I must say John Lennon is my preferred Beatle.

And its all because of Help!

But the rest are good too.

Paul's quickness, George's way with living, and Ringo's innocence.

Its all gooooooooooooooooooooooooooood Smile

I have to say Paul, just because I love his bass lines. John is a very very close second though, I probably prefer Johns song writing but Pauls playing.

Purely as a Beatle i would have to say Paul. Just because by all accounts he kept them together from '66 onwards with his enthusiasm and 100% commitment to the group. Think of all the great music we may never have gotten if they had split after they stopped touring!l 

Onward my friends, and glory for the thirty ninth!!

I am disappoint at the massive lacking of Ringo-love in this thread.

Yeah, yeah--pick on me for it all you like.  I've had a crush on the guy since I was 3.  And I can't really come up with any reason other than me and him have so dang much in common.  I've been a drummer ever since I could hold the sticks and sneak downstairs to my dad's kit at night, I was always the eccentric one who had SO much to say but never could because I got ignored… even down to our favourite colour, I've always shared with Ringo.  Not to mention he shares my poor luck in the health department, hee~

I agree entirely with the statement that he's a terribly underrated drummer.  What's cool about him is that his style is so unique, his breaks are more creative than, well, skilled--if you can say that.  What gives him his talent is that you can play just the drums from any Beatles song and know what song it is. It's so defineable--easy to play, but hard to compose.  He was a very key element in the reason why there can't be a duplicate of the Beatles.

So yeah.  He's my favourite.  He's just got so much personality, and whenever I watch a Beatles movie he never fails to make me laugh. <3

The fact that Octopus's Garden is my favourite Beatles song doesn't help, either.

My Favourite beatle is John, What a complex man! Funny, violent, sensible and vulnerable.

 

But in other hand, George is one of my favourite guitar players; Paul is the God of Bass, a lefty like myself (even thou I hate Hofner basses), and seem to be a good, sympathetic man. And Ringo is simply Ringo, so funny, so lighthearted.

 

By the way, it is true that Ringo is left-handed too?

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I haven't posted on this thread yet and since we've got some new members recently, I thought I'd resurrect it.

I love all The Beatles for different reasons but my favourite is Ringo because I'm a drummer – he's my idol. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

I also love John for his wit and awesome songs, Paul for his optimism and trying to keep the group together and George for being George (and cause I've been told I look a bit like him or his son, Dhani). I love all their songs though, they all had their own unique songwriting styles.

I love impersonating their voices. I'm not sure how many of you others do it too. I started doing it after I saw Help! on tele on New Year's Day, 2007. I'm getting quite good at them now. I'm the best at John's voice – I've done it to two Liverpudlians on separate occasions and they both said I was really good, especially since I'm not from Liverpool. a-hard-days-night-john-5

My favourite beatle is George, I think he's the best guitarist ever and he has the greatest voice, so sweet, and he is brilliant, he has amazing answers, in the Beatles anthology (DVD) for example… And of course, I love his songs, on the Beatles and after them … But anyway it's a difficult question, Sometimes I think John is my favourite, but at the moment I say Georgea-hard-days-night-george-4

I can't explain that, sorry.

My favorite Beatle for all my life has always been Ringo! I loved who he drummed and when I was 5 i even got a toy drum set so I could be like Ringo! (It even said that on my santa list XD), But now that I have been getting more to like George. I read his biography and loved it. I seem to learn ore about him.

 

Very tough disicion because I also love Paul and John.

Pete Best.

Sorry I always wanted to answer that to this question.

 

Actually I think that whereas I love George a lot, it's unfair to say he's my favorite Beatle. So I'll go one by one.

 

Ringo: I love him because he plays drums and that's the instrument I would play if I were in a rock band. Even when I was a kid, I follow the song with pencils on the desk, playing drums while listening to the Beatles and even now when I go on the bus I "play" the drums. Also, Ringo is cute. I love when he shakes his head while playing drums, I love his rings, and when he makes the "peace and love". Do you remember a moment in the Anthology when he's given a teddy bear? He looks so cute!

 

John: I love him because he's John *frigging* Lennon! His music is just out of this world. And he's handsome. When I hear his music I feel inspired, I feel that actually what we all really need is love, and that this world is not totally hopeless. He's a philosopher, a mastermind, a genius, a man at the same time, so great and so human. His flaws were as terrible as his talent. And his goofiness. That moment in the bathtub in A Hard's Day Night it's just awesome!! And he taught me that you don't need to be a top model to deserve an amazing love song (Woman). And I love him for one more reason : He gave us Julian Lennon.

 

Paul: The Yang of Lennon's Ying. He's Macca. His love songs, his craziness, his Helter Skelter, and because of him I discovered I was not the woman I used to be, that I didn't want to be left standing there, and that I have to Carry That Weight. And he always spoke so high of being a musician, that's something I respect of him. And his enthusiasm when The Beatles started.. the way he smiled singing those early songs, smile and enthusiasm he never truly lost… his cheeks and his solo career.

 

George: I used to sleep with his photo at my bed side. He's like my role model. Everytime I feel self-pity, I just play "I Me Mine". That he wrote the best Lennon-McCartney love song. He was the style, the coolness. I could picture John and Paul showing us their greatness and George quietly smiling, thinking , knowing "it's ok, I'm as good as them". I love that he stood up for his friends, the flowers on Ringo's drums, His songs. His guitar. His humor. His honesty about The Beatles ("I really didn't enjoy making Pepper") And that picture from the White Album on my wall, next to my bed. I'd live in Sitarday all days. And that smile, crazy smile at the end of the Anthology like saying "Yeah, they gave us our money, but we gave our nervous system". At first I thought "He's being cynical" But later I thought "No, he's just being totally honest"

 

Sorry for this rant.!! I can't talk about the Beatles with my friends without listening them saying "Ok… 20 minutes without a Beatles reference, that's anew record!!"

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie…… Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower… Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go. Beware of Darkness…  I believe in SH...

You're in the right place. Perhaps you could start a thread on the Beatle kids, or just Julian? I would mind learning more. a-hard-days-night-george-3

My favorite Beatle? That depends – what time is it?

I go back and forth between John and George, but most times it's George. All of them had redeeming qualities, but to me he seemed to be the most intelligent, honest and level headed of the Four.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
