"No Pakastanis" was meant as a mock at the likes of Enoch Powell, a right-wing UK pollie. Powell himself had just made his now infamous, but passionate "Rivers of Blood" speech, warning of the...

Re: We Need To Hear More Of It: \"Day 5 -- Honey Pie\"

HONEY PIE is one of the great "texture" songs of the White Album. It is too insubstantial to stand on its own, but takes its place in the light and shade of the whole album.

Re: We Need To Hear More Of It: \"Day 5 -- Octopus\' Garden\"

I'm going to be odd one out here. I think the song is dreadful. True, it's well played and recorded (what else would one expect), but the song itself - shudder.

This is one of a trio of songs on...

Re: We Need To Hear More Of It: \"Day 3: Taxman\"

The Beatles certainly knew how to open albums. And TAXMAN is one of their best openers.

An excellent song, but an indication to the fans who were still in "girlie" mode (oh, Paul is so cute, but I...

Re: We Need To Hear More Of It: *Day 2: The Night Before*

This is generally regarded as a lightweight song (that's what I've read). But it's an example of how much quality there is even in relative throwaways on Beatle albums.

It isn't a major song, but...

Re: Beatlegs by Box Top Records? Also, \"Texan Troubadours\".

I've got a feeling that Box Top Records were an offshoot of Trade Mark Of Quality. If not, then the Box Top people certainly did a lot of stealing of TMOQ boots!

Run For Your Life?

There are two songs from Rubber Soul that make me cringe. One is Michelle, because I loathe its lyrics (though I do like the tune, and the way the song is played).

The other is...

Re: Is it just me, or is Please Please Me superior to With The Beatles?

First off, Love Me Do/PS I Love You was NOT a number 1 in the UK (US irrelevant at this stage, of course).

But really, it comes down to a preference. Some people like the RAW energy of PPM, its...

Re: Beatle album poll which is or are your favorite?

Rather than an album, it's a Beatle period I like - from late 65 to late 68.

Rubber Soul is a good album, and showed the Beatles a road ahead.

Revolver and Pepper and MMT are the pinnacle of the...

Re: Strawberry Fields/Penny Lane or Hey Jude/Revolution?

Not even a close contest. SFF/Penny Lane wins.

Hey Jude and Penny Lane cancel each other out: two wonderful Paul classics, though Jude is perhaps a little overdone.

HOWEVER, great though Revolution...
