It feels like Paul's music is more disliked by Beatles fans

My take is that generally Paul is the most well-recognized and ‘poppy’ of the Fab Four. The first one being that George and Ringo didn’t really make many songs during their tenure with the Beatles, and that John is probably the most experimental of the four when it comes to musical composition. Paul being the ‘poppiest’ of the bunch seems to draw quite a bit of ire from a certain part of the fandom, especially those who especially loved the more experimental part of the Beatles. 

That’s just my take on it. You can definitely give some other reasoning. 

I’m a little miffed that “When I’m 64” gets a lot of flak. I love that song, probably one of my favorites on “Sgt Peppers” right now. It’s not the best, but I don’t care, it’s so pure and innocent and makes me a little embarrased listening to it. I’ll never sing it at a karaoke, too embarrasing.

Some people hate on Paul’s music, I suppose, but I think Ringo’s music gets the most hate by far.  It also gets the least amount of attention.

I know about five Ringo tracks, but his song Liverpool 8 is actually a huge favourite of mine. Great anthem of Beatles nostalgia.


Also I wouldn’t be embarassed for singing When I’m Sixty-Four (well maybe, but for singing out of tune not because of the song). I can stand one hundred percent behind the track.

Hating on Paul is just childish. The guy’s a genius. His fingerprints are all over almost every thing Beatles ever did. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.
