I always try to get babies of friends to say "Beatles" for their first word. One of these days it will work.

My brother wanted our baby sister's first word to be "Pink Floyd," but she could never get it because it's hard to say for a baby. I think Beatles would be hard for a baby, too. Maybe try something a little easier like "ball" or "bea".

 

It's so sad that some of you don't want to have any kids of your won. Don't you know that the only point in life is to reproduce? Where would we be if everybody thought like that? Nowhere because our species would be extinct! You are killing us all by not having children.

That's the only point in life? I don't think so. We already have 7 billion people on planet earth I don't think we're going to go extinct anytime soon. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

You just have to tell yourself that's not the only point in life because it's not as socially acceptable to have children at such a young age anymore so if you really believed (knew) that reproduction is the point to life then you would feel useless and like your life is at a stand-still. Sorry to be so real with you, bud, but you had to find out some time.

We all don't need to reproduce, there are plenty of children who don't have parents or a loving home that could be adopted instead. Some people are doctors, some are garbage people and others want to reproduce, we all have a roles that we play.

I know people who have lots of kids and others who don't have any.

That's a very good point, doggy woggy, and I agree that some people shouldn't reproduce (and some physically can't), but that doesn't mean that isn't the point to life. Raising a child to be an independent and responsible adult is just as good as reproducing, and I believe it's really the same thing. You are shaping the child and watching them grow, but not necessarily giving them their life, but instead, retaining their life for them.

I also know that my doctor has children, and I know different people who have different amounts of children, too!a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I'm notoriously bad at picking up on internet sarcasm and or trolling.  That out the way:

People not having children they don't want is a damn sight better than people going off and having children they don't want to know or can't care for properly.  Ask Julian Lennon  Sod the cod-Darwinism and look at the socioeconomic realities.  The strength of humanity should be judged on our quality of life not our dwindling numbers (that's internet sarcasm, just to clarify).

Sorry to be so real with you bud, but you had to find out some time.

This can apply not just to children, people can shape the people around them whether their are friends, family or any one else. The little interactions people have with one another can give a lasting impact which they will spread to others like the Beatles touched our lives without have any parental relationship to us and though us, they will live forever.

I think a point of life is to influence others in any way and have an impact on someone's life whether though parenthood or friendship or your job or anything else. By impacting other peoples lives, you are able to live on in their memories and continue yourself.

I didn't seem to find a better place to put this (but if there is one feel free to tell me)

My friend has recently agreed to really listen to the beatles, she usually listens to korean pop music and she asked me to put together a beatles playlist for her to listen to, she dosen't want to listen to all songs since there are so many. So my question for you is what songs should i pick, i don't want to pick only the popular/most well known ones but at the same time I don't want to scare here away.

The sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so are you... probably... I actually don't know... and it's nighttime here //piggiesinpennylane

Back In The USSR is a good one too

Is your friend a child? I think Yellow Submarine is pretty kid-friendly.

As a child the songs I gravitated to the most were:

All Together Now (even with the "can I take my friend to bed?" lyric... hell to me it was a teddy bear or other fave stuffed animal LOL)

Good Day Sunshine

Yellow Submarine (they purposely wrote a children's song with this one anyway so yeah)

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Octopus's Garden

Here Comes The Sun

Birthday

Actually no she's 14... that's why I wasn't sure about posting it here but it seemed almost fitting at leastahdn_george_08

If she's 14, I wouldn't include Run For Your Life , Maxwell's Silver Hammer , Please Please Me , or any of the other songs with less kid-friendly lyrics or questionable subtext. Her parents might not approve of those... a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

Other than that, I'd say: pick four or five off each album. That would give you a playlist of about 50 songs, which should be doable. That's what; 2.5 hours or so? If you choose ones with different styles, it should give a pretty good overall impression of the Beatles' catalog.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I agree. There is at least a song or two on each album that are "kid friendly". I'd bet you could look at each album and find something appropriate in there. 

 

LOL *whispers* I was bouncing around the house singing "Maxwell's Silver Hammer " at the top of my lungs when I was much younger than 14. It was just catchy as hell, and I had no clue as a kid that ol' Max was murdering people. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Then again, I had "hippie parents" and my "cradle songs", or songs playing in the house constantly throughout my childhood were things like"Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin, etc.  a-hard-days-night-ringo-6. I didn't understand what they meant yet, but boy I loved rockin' out to 'em. ahdn_ringo_09
