A co-worker (a generally cool guy) made the mistake years ago of ridiculing the Beatles during a musical discussion, calling them "overrated" and sarcastically reciting "Love, Love Me Do /You know I love you!" as proof. So I instantly start to rant and foam at the mouth: "Oh come ON, get some perspective! First, that's only the first song they ever wrote! Second, it's also the WORST song they ever wrote! Third, all rock lyrics were usually crap in those days anyways! Fourth, lyrics are NOT music, and it's their MUSIC that was revolutionary! Fifth..." That's more or less what I said, except he started laughing before I finished, and remarked that i was well-prepared for an argument - "You've had this discussion before, haven't you?" Turns out he had no particular anti-Beatles feelings at all, was in fact a big "White Album " fan, and just started the argument for fun, figuring I'd swallow the bait and get all wound up.  A job well done.


I agree with him on the fact that they're overrated. They are, heavily. By overrated I mean people make Beatles churches and stuff (Also, who could forget the Manson incident).

"The best band? The Beatles. The most overrated band? The Beatles."

Ha ha ha, awesome! That reminds me of someone at school who heard me singing "Baby's in Black" between classes:
"What are you singing?"
"'Baby's in Black.'"

"What?"

"You know, 'Baby's in Black.' By the Beatles?"

"The Beatles? Nobody born after 1970 listens to the Beatles!"

"I guess I'm the exception to your rule."

We had many Beatles-related discussions, the "Two of Us" did. 

NOTE: The aforementioned idiot DO NOT have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead. Or wear raincoats standing solo in the sun. Or… just listen to the song. 


Ohhoho… That person is very wrong!Once I was on my computer at school and I was looking at the cover of Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band and this is my conversation with the girl next to me:
"Who is that?"

"The Beatles, that's who. I love them."

"You need some help."

"…What?"

"I'm sorry for you."

"Huh? What do you mean?"

Then the bell rang and she didn't answer. It was flipping weird. But then again, this girl is obsessed with Twilight and Glee so I wasn't very surprised…

My mind is far away, off in Pepperland…
I'm a girl, don't be confused by my name.
